An RV trip is an event you look forward to. It is sure to bring opportunities for fun and adventure. It allows you to spend quality time with your family or friends in a safe and pleasurable environment, whether it’s in a pack-in pack-out campsite, RV park, or other venue.
Failing to plan properly for the needs of the trip can turn a highly awaited retreat into a regrettable disaster. Here’s an RV checklist of the essentials that you need to consider before you start the engine and head to your favorite RV park.
1. Food and drinks
You don’t want to spend a great deal of your time cooking when you can spend the time better in outdoor activities. Pack ready-to-eat or simple, easy-to-cook foods enough for the duration of your intended trip. Bring your daily menu list and stock up on all the food ingredients needed to prepare them in your pantry cupboard and insulated cooler.
Additionally, bring all the things you will need to prepare your meals throughout your trip and the eating utensils your family will use.
If you don’t plan to cook during your RV trip, make sure that the RV campground you choose to visit offers dining options where you can simply order food you wish to eat during your trip.
2. Clothes, towels, pillows, and blankets
This seems like a given, but bring enough clothes based on the amount of days you are staying. When staying longer trips, pack enough for a small period and plan to wash. This will make packing lighter and take up less space. If you plan to wash, be sure to bring laundry items, too, such as detergent, fabric conditioners, etc.
Additionally, do not forget to double-check your RV for other essentials such as towels, blankets, pillows, cleaners, etc. that will keep your travel and camping adventures comfortable.
Bring a sufficient amount of prescription medicines that you take and over-the-counter medications for common ailment such as headaches, dizziness, stomach issues, allergy, and flu. Bring two first aid kits – a big kit kept inside the RV and small one to carry along when you’re away outdoors.
4. Bathroom Supplies and Hygiene Kit
These include necessities such as soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, mouthwash, skin lotion, sunscreen, tissues, shampoo and other bathroom items. While RV parks might have clean washrooms you can use, it is still better to be prepared with these bathroom essentials.
5. Indoor Entertainment and Recreation
Think of the activities you can do as a family at night before you go to sleep or when the weather is not suited for outdoor activities. You can bring your favorite game such as cards, board games, and downloaded movies and music. Some RV parks, such as Campers Holiday, have nightly activities you can participate in if ever you get bored with your own recreational tools. Be sure to ask about our campfires!
Once you’ve checked off all the items in your checklist, you’re now ready to experience the RV fun!
