    Tips to enjoy aN RV Road Trip with your Family


Travelling via a roadtrip with your family, especially kids, can be a tiring task for most parents. It becomes even more difficult if you have 3 or 4 kids. Each kid needs his or her own sleeping patterns and eating preferences. Occasional whining which kids do all the time may deter family travel.  Although staying home is not a good option.

Maybe it is time to reconsider taking a family style RV Trip. 

Tips listed below should add enjoyment to the excursion


  • Kids need to learn new things...
  • One way is if they travel with you, to meet new people, visit relatives and explore new places.
  • Plan your trip well in advance  
  • When you are travelling with kids, you need to plan your destinations and check local attractions - are they of interest to your kids?
  • Look for kid friendly parks, historic places and monuments, play parks and even zoos. 
  • Involve all members of the family - ask everyone where they would like to go to.
  • Book for a place to stay in advance During peak times accommodations fill up fast.
  • Travelling by RV you will each have a place to settle in for the night. Sleeping arrangements and dining on board enhance most RV getaways. 
  • Families should have a selection of games, puzzles, colouring books, toys and activities for those non touring downtimes. Kids need to be kept busy.
  • Why not allow your kids to pack their own backpacks so they will pick their most favourite things. For teenagers and grown up kids, a portable DVD player, camera and maybe a computer can be helpful. For babies and toddlers, ensure to include baby wipes and diapers.

  • Pack healthy easy access foods Ready to make snacks are a good option especially when on the move. 
  • Nuts, energy bars and water bottles enhance easy to carry treats.

  • Even in an RV, limit driving days from five to seven hours per day.
  • Take a break every few hours to stretch your legs .
