If you are the one that has to plan the summer vacation every year, you know it can be hard to come up with new ideas. It may seem impossible to keep the entire family happy, stay within budget AND enjoy yourself. Don’t give up hope. There is a perfect solution to your dilemma. Rent an RV for summer vacation camping!
Unlike your previous summer vacation planning sessions, summer RV renting is a breeze. You have just a few main decisions to make and you’re set. After that, you’re ready to roll and hit the road.
The Perfect Destination (or Two or Three)
A benefit of renting an RV for your summer vacation camping trip is that you don’t have to choose just ONE place to go. Your temporary home on wheels will allow you to wander or stay put for however long you choose. You’re not tied to anyone’s schedule but your own.
“Destination flexibility” allows you to check off more boxes on each person’s wishlist. As any family trip planner knows, it is usually impossible to meet everyone’s needs and wants on each trip. When you rent an RV, you can try to include several stops to make everyone happy.
The major part of planning for an RV camping trip is in making reservations. You have one that is mandatory — rent an RV. The second is optional but recommended (site reservations). After that, it is up to you. You can plan other outings and dining out or be free and see where the wind takes you.
Rent An RV
Once you’ve settled on a place to go, it’s time to go ahead and rent an RV. This step alone can be a lot of fun as there are thousands of RVs to choose from. It can also be one of the easiest parts of your planning session. Especially if you enlist the help from an expert.
The best place to start is with a professional company like RVshare. Renting RVs is what they do. Their easy online trip planner helps you from start to finish. They take care of insurance, roadside assistance and connecting all the dots for you. It is their job to take the pressure off of you so you can enjoy your vacation.
Reserve Your Spot
During the summer months, it is a good idea to reserve a spot in your destination campground. The busy season often finds RV camps full the entire summer. It is a very good idea to make campground reservations as far ahead of time as you can but it is not a trip-killer if you don’t. Many RV parks, resorts and campgrounds have some first come-first serve spots. They try to keep them available for the last-minute visitors.
Have a list of alternative places to camp for each of your destination choices. In a worst-case scenario check with Walmarts, highway rest stops and truck stops to see if you can park for the night. Having your own bedrooms and facilities traveling with you does have some perks when you’re in a pinch.
Summer Vacation Camping
Once you experience a family RV camping trip, you will wonder why you’ve never tried it before. You will not miss the stress that’s been removed from your annual trip planning sessions. You’ll be amazed at the money you’ve saved by renting an RV over flying somewhere and staying in hotels. It might even encourage you to make another decision. How about going on more than one summer vacation camping trip each year!
