How to Plan Your Full Time RV Trip

So, you like to prepare a full time RV trip?

In this course, we will be discussing some pointers that you’ll be able to envision, plan and afterwards implement your very own full time RVing trip.

But before we get to the RV full time tips, right here is the most essential principle:

Become flexible…it’s for your own good!

With each turn in your full time RV journey, you are going to have problems, however the key is to try to be versatile and also roll with the punches.

The way we started making our own full time RV dream in to reality is by having one large map and over the dinner table, and methodically preparing a geographically wishful route from the east coast to the west coast then back again. It was just the first stage of course, but an important one in order to get the creative juices flowing.

And then we looked at RVing reference books and all kinds of online resources for the places throughout the United States of America and also Canada in which we wanted to visit.

If ever there is one only book you should get that will help you with this section of your full time RV planning it is Road Trip USA: Cross-Country Adventures on America’s Two-Lane Highways, a definitely must read!

We then handed the children coloured pencils and permitted them to gleefully color the map to exactly where they liked to visit. It looked fantastic! We then propped the map on the mantle and adored it every day.

This rough map later became our very personal full time RVing “vision board”. It has been an excellent idea…a rough draft…but we all were aware it necessary to be enhanced.

We then started the actual planning…and the whole route changed for the first of Many times.

And this comes to our second full time RVing rule:

Always be ready to make changes!

Your full time RVing route can and will be “tweaked”; which as a result may alter the following destination. And so just be flexible (remember “the most important principle?”)

As soon as your route is “set in stone” and you start in your trip, certain points of interest could alter once again.

(In fact we just altered the route to South Dakota and North Dakota today as of this writing so that we can see our very good pal and honorary Hell’s Angel, Dale Gorman).

Besides Hell’s Angels and other kind of distractions, there are all sorts of factors that may possibly alter your route and itinerary and the biggest one of these is Mother Nature.

Mother Nature is really a major force to reckon with. For all of us, it was re-routing much of the trip around the flooded mid-west. We had no option, National Park Campgrounds that we had booked months in advance literally closed because of flooding, so we needed to sit back, look in a map and figure out “where to next?”.

When you are setting off knowing in your mind that plans may change then this isn’t monumental, it’s only a dip in the road, like many some other issues that may possibly happen while RVing full time. But, if you can’t handle bending the route a little bit, this might really feel disastrous for you.

Telling your self that plans can change will prepare you for once they do, now you can begin planning it.

Below is the 1st with our RVing full time guidelines:

Step #1: Yes, you can RV full time!

For all of us, the full time RV trip began as an “imagine if we could possibly ever….” kind of totally free association. We sat around the dining room table, with US road maps as well as site guides, and also talked over matters just like:

“Wouldn’t it’s wonderful if we could…”

“Wouldn’t it be so cool for our family to enjoy this kind of experience together…”

“I like to value this time while the kids are young, and plan this while they are excited about hitting the road…”

“I’d like to offer my own wife and kids the chance to actually begin to see the country…”

“I feel that it can be a great learning experience for my own children…”

“Wouldn’t it be refreshing to enjoy some thing different; to break away from your everyday routines and spice things up…”

So free associate.

After that, count up all your answers and then seriously think about what you would like to do and what you’d like to accomplish.

Keep hold of The Full Time RV Payoff in Your Mind

Each family has their own “pay off” for hitting the full time RV road. For us, it had been a combination of amazing “pay offs”. All of us also decided that the timing was ripe for the pickin’, so we considered it our objective.

If a full time RV trip is actually something that you and your family choose to set about, our first tip is to discuss about the ways that it will and may take place, and also ignore all the talk in your mind (and your well-intentioned acquaintances) about the way it “can’t” happen.

Ignore these types of negative feelings:

“We can probably by no means find the money for it and my boss wouldn’t let me work from the road”

“We can only proceed if the baby was just just a little older”

“Our family of 5 might probably feel so stucked in a container almost all summer”

“How would I actually homeschool? – I’m not a teacher”

“I could never make it happen, I do not have any idea exactly where to start!”

Quit all the negative self-talk. Then take road blocks one by one, and then think of several solutions on how you can make it work.

And then decide to get on the road full time RVing. Our following step will cover the RV full time Mission as well as time frame.
