3 Travel Tips for RV Rental Beginners

Renting an RV for your next vacation? Whether you’re traveling to a scenic park in Pennsylvania or to an RV resort in Florida, RV rentals are great for taking all the comforts of home on your road trip. If it’s your first time renting an RV, then Martin RV Rentals has these three tips to help get you started on your travels.

1) Know Your RV Inside & Out

When it comes to selecting an RV rental, the first thing you need to account for is how many passengers you have and what model would be suitable for everyone in your group. Do you need a pull-behind travel trailer or a spacious motorhome rental? Study the layout of the sleeping areas to see what would work best for your group. For example, at Martin RV, we carry models with various floor plans of dinettes, bathrooms, and sleeping arrangements. Knowing your optimal RV layout will make life better on the open road.

2) Plan Your Route

Spontaneity is fun, but when tackling a new form of travel, it’s best to plan ahead. Make a solid plan of where you want to go by factoring your budget, food supply, route, and campground options. Once you have your route nailed down, consider the roads you plan to drive on, and take a smaller trip on similar terrain. When you’re new to RVing, simple tasks like switching lanes, ascending hills, and parking require a bit of practice.

3) Create a Campground Setup Checklist

No trip is complete without a rock-solid campground routine in place. Ensure proper on-site setup with these simple steps:

  • Check the RV site for branches or obstacles on the ground.
  • Locate the hookups for your electricity, water, and sewage.
  • Chock the wheels to secure your RV.
  • Attach the sources of power and sewer hook-up.
  • Put out the awning, and set up your campsite area.
