One of the rewards of RVs and travel trailers is that you can take your domicile with you as you travel as a substitute of staying in a string of hotels. Even so, you will have to arrange a site to park your Travel Trailer although frequently that will be in a campground. So these are some RV camping guidelines that you will need to know to be able to camp well as you go, and here they are:
Probably the best investment that you can make for RV travel is to buy one or both of the major campground guides and use them often to plan out your overnight stays in advance. It's a good idea to make your camping reservations in advance just to be sure that you have a place ready for you when you pull in, and both Woodall's and the Trailer Life directories have many of campgrounds listed that you can pick from. Quite a few are not recurring in both books, so it may be very beneficial to have them both if you are on the road often.
If you aren't previously familiar with a campground, it can be a sensible move to only arange a one night stay there even if you plan to be in the area for quite a few days. The one night stay will help you decide if this campground is a good quality fit for you. Many RVers have purchased multi-night packages to save money only to find that the campground was not what they had originally thought. So just making a one night reservation lets you familiarize yourself with your camp site and if all is well you can always get a multi-night package later on. If the accommodations are not up to your standards, then you can just look somewhere else for the second night.
You really should have a membership to the Good Sam Club for lots of reasons, but one of the big ones is that a membership in their club can get you 10% off on overnight fees at most campgrounds across the country. This basically means that you would be staying free for every 10th night or so and if you travel often that can add up to quite a bit of money.
For those that are over 62 and like to visit our country's national parks, you can get a Golden Age Passport that costs only $10 for processing and will entitle the carrier to free entry to any national park across the country for life. It also gets you 50% off on all usage fees if you decide to stay overnight. Again, if you like to visit the national parks this can result in considerable savings over time.
Using these rv camping tips can help you save money and time and help you focus on the thing that you really want to do, enjoy yourself as you travel this great country.
