Taking off on a lark is fun, but having a fantastic, hassle-free vacation is even better! That’s where a little trip planning comes in. We know that seems like too much structure for some RV campers, but stay with us. We’re not talking about regimenting your entire vacation into fifteen minute segments. It sure is nice to know, though, that the campground you expected to be in Denver is still open! Taking the time to map out your trip and planning ahead for campsites, attractions and even road construction can make all the difference in your vacation enjoyment.
Here’s the best thing about trip planning—you don’t have to start from scratch. Organizations and clubs exist that specialize in making trip planning a breeze. We’ve pulled together links to two of our favorite trip planning resources for you, our loyal motorhome rental customers. Use these links to find more information, and get started planning the perfect RV vacation!
