You want your RV vacation to be the best that it can be for everyone. After all, a vacation is supposed to relieve all the stress built up from living day-to-day in your workaday world. But if you are not fully prepared, you will be adding stress to your vacation days. Let’s see how we can prepare you for your RV vacation and have a worry-free getaway.
First, you need to know your destination and how you’ll get there. You will find El Monte RV Rentals all over the United States where you can obtain the ideal motor home for your trip. We offer free “RV Camping Itineraries” that provide mapped-out courses and destinations for your convenience. These are located on our website.
You can either “fly-drive” to your destination or pick up your motor home locally and enjoy the drive and adventures along the way that only RV travel can offer! Don’t forget that in many cases you can take advantage of our free airport shuttle service in major airport cities. Check our website for availability.
Here’s a possible RV Travel Itinerary: you can rent an RV from El Monte RV Rentals in Orlando, find a nice camping spot, visit some Orlando sights, and then head to the Keys for more fun. On the way to the Florida Keys there are plenty of sights to see and you’ll want to allow time to stop and enjoy them all. You may want to refer to previous postings on our Monty’s Musings blog to learn about many exciting destinations to visit in Florida in your RV.
From Orlando, you could head east to Fox Lake Sanctuary, then south on Interstate 95 to the Florida Keys and beautiful Key Largo. For a winter vacation, you really can’t beat the Keys. You will meet creative types who spend their time making unique art, beachcomber types who relax all day along the sandy beaches, and swim with the dolphins. Use Google and maps on the Internet to plan your route and everything you want to see on the way.
If you don’t want to bring your pets along, you can contact a pet-sitter or the kennel in advance to ensure they have an opening for your time away. But if you prefer keeping Fido with you, it’s good to know that El Monte RV is a “Pet-Friendly” company and supports taking the family pets along! Also remember to check out the weather forecast for that area for the time you will be there. It is surprising how accurate these weather forecasts can be. You will then know what to pack, or even if you should put off your vacation for a few days to miss a storm.
You will want to prepare your smartphone and laptop for the trip. Download some apps to make your vacation more exciting. You can find apps online and pick the ones you’ll use the most. Perhaps you’ll choose the one which forecasts weather down to the hour or perhaps the one which identifies animal tracks. There are many to choose from.
Now begin to pack for your trip. First make a detailed list of every item you want to bring and as you pack them, mark them off. This way you’ll forget nothing. Remember, when packing clothes, roll them instead of folding. This prevents wrinkles. There’s lots of storage in motor homes, so taking “it all with you” is usually not a problem!
When you prepare and plan out your trip, you will find everything less stressful and more enjoyable. Have a great RV vacation!
