5 Tips For Budgeting Your Next RV Trip

An RV rental for the last days of summer sounds like so much fun, doesn't it? Nothing but open road, nighttime skies, and the sounds of crickets chirping or cicadas singing you to sleep seems lovely. The cost of renting an RV is so much cheaper than flying somewhere too, and it just doesn't compare to the family bonding time you get in an RV. 



If you're looking for tips on how to make summer travel fun and affordable, El Monte RV has what you're looking for. Take staycations in an RV on a single tank of gas, or take longer trips for greater distances. Either way, the following tips will help.


Use Online Mapping Tools to Plan the Shortest Distances


Sometimes the shortest distance between two points is a line, right? When you're traveling on a budget, look for the shortest routes to save on gas. Online maps or GPS systems can help.

Cost of an RV Rental Can Fit into Your Budget

Lucky for you, RVs come in all sizes. That means that the cost and pricing for a rental for your summer vacation have varying affordability levels. Choose the size of RV and the rental price that fits your budget.


Summer Travel Means Buying Fresh Roadside Food


When you travel in an RV during the summer months, there are always farmer's markets and roadside stands where you can buy fresh produce and sometimes fresh (refrigerated) meats. Leftovers from what you buy is easily stored in an RV fridge. It's cheaper and healthier than fast food.


Affordability of Campgrounds Is Manageable, Too


There are RV campgrounds everywhere. Some have hookups for electricity and water, while others do not. You can cut a little out of the budget if you don't stay at a hookup site every time you stop.

Take Two Adult Drivers to Drive Through the Night

One way to save money while traveling by RV is to have at least two adult drivers to drive the RV. One adult can take over to drive through most of the night so that you don't have to stop at a campground. Trading off driving duties also means you get to your destinations faster.


Get Creative with Your Budget


The nice thing about driving an RV and renting it is that you have a lot of wiggle room to get creative with your budget. El Monte RV can help with all kinds of tips.
