RV Travel – Places & Plans
For most RVers, it’s the RV travel that intrigued them in the first
Some plan their trips in detail, while others will “go with the flow” of a loose itinerary.

Or your path might be geared toward visits with friends or family in different places across the map.
Working RVers might tailor their travel to fit with the needs of a job. Or the RVer may simply have a desire to get to every state, province or interesting place they have yet to see.

RV travel plans should consider the basic things. Check out the
weather for the time of year you plan to arrive. Balance fuel costs and
campground expenses to fit your buget and desired RV travel experience.
Think about both the type of journey and the type of stay you want to have. How long do you plan to be in a given location? Is getting there quickly more important, or do you prefer a leisurely pace?
