Though modern recreational vehicles are almost like a fully furnished apartment house on wheels, affording all the comforts and luxuries conceivable can be a real pain. Then you have to maintain, service and stow when not in use. Besides, the huge initial investment on these RVs appears to be sheer wastage of hard earned money, since many users end up not using them often. Owning a recreational vehicle also means lot of work. You have to load and unload all the equipment and gear every time you go somewhere. A lot of the work can go in setting up camp, hooking up water, checking about the sanitation, electricity (the batteries will go down if left unattended the whole of winter) and drainage (the pipes invariably get clogged up). Lubrication, tune up, servicing, etc are sure to make you go roving mad.
Rent a recreational vehicle instead
If you take my tip, rent a recreational vehicle first and see how it suits you. With a valid driver’s license, you are free to rent a recreational vehicle that you can test drive for a week or so. See how it feels. If you are not used to drive heavy unwieldy wide-bodied vehicles, you may hit the curves every time you take a turn. Take an impassionate view. Do you really enjoy being in it or are you indulging yourself? Think also of all the possibilities as you are using it and see if it still appeals to you. Rent a recreational vehicle to be sure of the monster.

See, if you can adjust to the routine. The rented vehicle will give you that chance to accept or reject it.
There is many other reasons to rent a recreational vehicle. Hiring companies spread all over the US offer excellent service that include (a). Choice of vehicle from a wide selection of fully equipped luxury motor homes from America’s top manufacturers like Fleetwood RV, Winnebago, etc, (b). All their RVs are fully company owned and operated, (c). Toll free roadside assistance with more than 1500 service locations throughout the country, (d). Online reservation.
Some useful tips before you rent a recreational vehicle
Before going to rent a recreational vehicle it may be prudent to consider the topography of the place of visit. See if it is a narrow mountain road or a high plateau. You should also consider the size of the family, their slipping arrangements, storage space, power of the engine, etc.
The reason I write travel tips hubs is because I enjoy traveling very much, although I have not been able to go on trips as much as I used to. I’ve long held the dream of becoming a Snowbird to escape the cold, dreary Canadian winters like others do. In fact, it is a fervent wish of mine and I can’t help feeling jealous occasionally.
This is so comprehensive. Amazing information! I am coming to the US for my first time this year, and am so nervous about coming through security, but hopefully these tips will help me know what to expect!
More and more Americans are enjoying the versatility, security, convenience and the grandeur of visiting and touring the country with motorhomes, more popularly known as RV’s.
According to a study conducted by the University of Michigan, 1 out of 12 American families own motorhomes, thus the increase of 7.8 percent of the numbers of such vehicles in the past four years. To stretch the statistics further, this means that seven million families or households have RV’s.
So why is there an increase on the use of motorhomes? Post September 11 analysis reveals that people want to have more control of their trips and are opting to travel more by land than by air. Aside from this, they want to avoid airport hassles and traffic.
But more than these reasons, Americans want to enjoy more times with their families and to be in control of their travel schedules. And in these stressful times, going outdoors and communing with nature seem to be one of the solutions which can be greatly accomplished by motorhome traveling.
Motorhomes have become more comfortable and more luxurious since the release of the first RV. Some motorhomes nowadays, have complete upholstered furniture, state of the line appliances like microwaves, televisions and refrigerators. Other deluxe motorhomes provide features such as dining and living areas, queen beds, cabinets and storage plus a shower in the full-size bathroom.
Other motorhomes also became flashier with stereos and CD players installed in the vehicle and other enhanced comforts such as double door refrigerators and wooden tabletops. Moreover, they have also become efficient in terms of the space and materials they use for their construction.
Aside from these conveniences inside the motorhome, motorhome vacationing also became popular because of the improved campgrounds and fancy motorhome resorts. Some motorhome resorts offer luxurious amenities such as swimming pools and golf- courses. Fitness enters for the health conscious can also be found in such motorhome parks aside from computer centers. Aside from these, others also provide schedules for sports meets and dance activities.
Beyond, these perks and joys, however, traveling in a motorhome needs some planning especially on the activities you and your family want to accomplish on the trip. Aside from these, your motorhome should be equipped with the following essentials before you hit the road:
- bottle/can opener
- camera and film
- first-aid supplies
- fishing gear
- flashlights and lanterns
- folding chairs
- grill and fuel
- insect repellent
- nature field guides
- picnic basket
- road flares
- rope, cords, or wire
- shovel (small, folding type)
- sports equipment
- toilet paper
- tool kit
- trash bags
- water hose
Aside from these, families and individuals also have responsibilities in conserving energy and making a conscious effort of taking care of the environment while traveling on the road and while settling in camps. Here are some few tips you need to know also while traveling in your motorhome:
1. To decrease emissions and to conserve energy, keep the motorhome well tuned.
2. Make sure that the campsites where you camp are marked as “RV campsites”.
3. While driving, make sure that you stick to the roads that the motorhome can travel into.
4. Try to avoid using disposable things such as cups, plates and spoons.
5. Make sure that the campfires you make are small and avoid putting stuff into the fire that will not burn such as rubber, foil, plastic etc. It is also important to note fire rules in motorhome campgrounds.
6. Avoid using supplies for cleaning that can be toxic. Look for ecologically friendly cleaning stuff.
7. If you are bringing your pets in your motorhome travel, and they are permitted in campgrounds, make sure that they are kept inside the motorhome or use stakes to tie them there. Barks can be damaged when they are tied in a tree.
8. Be considerate wit your neighbors when playing music or when playing computer games. Other campers may consider this as noise.
9. Always make sure that you recycle while traveling.
10. Make sure to leave all areas in the motorhome park clean and dispose your trash in properly designated areas in the park.
