Before Hitting the Road
Road trips will always give you stories and memories that will last forever. Whether those are good or bad stories and memories, that is almost entirely up to you and how you prepare for it. Here are a few things you should do before hitting the road.
Your Car and Trailer
Here are a few standard things to do and check before hooking your trailer up and driving.
- Check batteries and bring spares
- Clean out your RV water filter
- Make sure your tires are trip ready
- Make sure your trailer bathroom is trip ready
- Check and clean all fire alarms, carbon monoxide alarms, and vents
- Clean the inside of your RV
The hope is that you and your family remain completely safe throughout your entire trip with no hiccups along the way. However, it is still best to prepare for the worst. So, go over standard safety precautions and emergency plans with all of your travel companions so everyone can know what to do if anything were to happen.
Plan Out Your Route
This may seem like an obvious one, but you would be surprised. Plan your trip before leaving. Spontaneity is fun but can often lead you into dangerous situations. So, know where you are going and when you will likely arrive there.
Know the Weather Conditions on Your Route
On travel days, be sure to look ahead at the weather along your route. So you can avoid storms, snow, and ice.
While On the Road
Now that you are ready to start driving. Here are a few things to keep in mind while on the road.
Snacks for the whole family are a must. Traveling can get boring. It helps to have something to snack on along the way. Plus, if you bring them from the start, it can save a few stops.
Drink water! Don’t be afraid to stop and use the restroom. Staying hydrated is way more important than shaving 30 minutes off your trip. Especially if you plan on hiking or doing any other physical activity once you arrive.
Stay alert at all times. Driving a luxury trailer isn’t the same as driving your car to work every day. Don’t be afraid to switch drivers or pull over for a nap or energy drink if you need to. Your safety is the highest priority.
Enjoy the Drive
A road trip is all about the road. So, don’t forget to look around and enjoy the drive. Driving long distances can bring you some of the most breathtaking views before even getting to your destinations.
