Hey there! Are you thinking about taking a trip in an RV? That sounds like a lot of fun! But with so many different sizes and styles to choose from, it can be tough to decide which RV is the best one for you. Here’s what you should think about when picking the right size RV:
Who Is Going On Your RV Adventure?
First, think about how many people are going with you. If it’s just you and a friend, spouse or partner, you probably don’t need a super huge RV with lots of beds. But if you have a big family, you’ll need more space for everyone to sleep and store their stuff. Make a list of how many beds you need and how much storage you’ll need for all your stuff.
Where you’re going and what are you doing?
Are you planning to stay in RV parks with full hookups (water, electricity, and sewage), or do you want to be able to camp without hookups (called “boondocking”)? If you want to boondock, you’ll need an RV with a big tank for fresh water and a generator for power. But if you’re mostly staying in RV parks, you might not need as much self-sufficiency.
What are my RV options?
There are a few different types of RVs to choose from: travel trailers, fifth wheels, and motorhomes. Travel trailers are the most popular and can be towed by a pickup truck or SUV. Fifth wheels are similar to travel trailers, but they have a special hitch that needs a pickup truck to tow them. Motorhomes are RVs with a driving cab built in, so you don’t need a separate vehicle to tow them.
Finally, think about your budget. RVs can range in price from a few thousand dollars to over a million, so it’s important to have a budget in mind before you start shopping. Keep in mind that bigger RVs will cost more to buy and maintain.
Oh, and one more thing
if you’re planning to visit national parks with your RV, some parks have size limits for RVs. This means that your RV can’t be too long, wide, or tall to fit in the park. You should check the size limits for the national parks you’re planning to visit before you go, so you don’t have any problems when you get there.
Some parks also have limits on how many RVs are allowed in at one time, to help protect the natural beauty of the park and prevent it from getting too crowded. If you’re planning to visit a popular park during peak season, it’s a good idea to make a reservation for your RV in advance.
So, to sum up: finding the right size RV for your trip, think about how many people are going with you, where you’re going and what you’re doing, what type of RV will work best for you, and your budget. With a little bit of planning, you’ll be able to find the perfect RV for your adventure!
