As the summer fast approaches, it’s time to take that family road trip you’ve been discussing for ages. With more daylight and beautiful weather, it’s the perfect time to drive across the country or hit up that state park you have been dying to see.

An RV is a great way to see the country in comfortability and style but planning a long trip takes time and preparation. Here are a few tips to help you get ready for an amazing RV road trip this summer!

Perform a Safety Check

Before taking off on the road, be sure to check your tires, walk around your RV to make sure everything is intact, or take it to an RV service center to have a technician give it a once over if you want to be certain it’s safe and ready to go.

Pack a roadside emergency kit and leave important trip information like your route, arrival day, and times with a loved one. Be sure to update them throughout your travels, so they know you are safe.

Plan Out Meals  

It can be tempting to load up on junk and fast food while traveling, but ordering out for every meal can leave you feeling sluggish and do some serious damage to your wallet. Most RVs are equipped with a kitchen set up, so plan out your meals ahead of time and do a big grocery shop before the trip.

Give Yourself Extra Time

Tack on at least one extra day to your schedule. Weather can interfere with travel, things could go wrong with your vehicle, or you could come to unexpected road closures or other delays. It’s better to have extra time than to stress about being behind schedule and rushing, which is never a safe way to travel. Road trips are much more enjoyable when you can take your time.

Get Enough Sleep

Long hours and days spent on the road can wear you down. It is important to get enough sleep while traveling, especially if you are the driver. You can do many things to ensure you get a good night’s sleep in your RV, but the most important thing is to choose the right mattress.
