How to make your RV trip easier. Here are 10 tricks you should know.
Magnetic hooks, a solar-heated shower and special battery-powered lights. When planning an RV trip, there are some useful tips to consider.
Living in an RV can also be a bit tiring, so it’s better to make sure everything is well thought out and effortless in advance. In addition, this temporary home is literally on wheels, so everything needs to have its own safe place to minimize damage while driving. Here are 10 tricks for beginners and advanced campers alike.
Use apps with parking lots
When looking for parking, you should rely on specialized apps. One of the more popular ones is Park4Nite. With the help of the app, you can easily find points with water, the best views and the cheapest places to park, and reviews from other travelers will give you an idea of what else is worth using.
Traveling in an RV can be demanding for the various items on board. If some of your belongings are kept on the floor (baskets, dog bowls, etc.), elastic bungee cords can be helpful. They can be attached to cabinets, seats and other items in the vehicle to ensure a smooth trip without luggage rolling around on the floor. Cords can also be used to hang laundry.
Space in an RV is limited, so it’s important to save as much of it as possible. Collapsible boxes, dishwashing bowls and cups are a great way to maximize space. Another challenge in an RV can be a smaller refrigerator with limited food storage space. Collapsible containers are a practical way to fit more.
Use multiple networks
First and foremost, it’s a good idea to make sure you have a portable Wi-Fi router before your campervan trip. It’s important that the router works on a different network than your cell phone. That way, when one of the signals goes down, you always have a second backup network. This is a slightly more expensive option, but especially useful if you are forced to work in your RV from time to time.
