As far as tips go, let’s talk about the practical nature of your bucket list adventures rather than looking at locations.
After more than two years of the Covid-19 pandemic, almost everyone is more than ready to get out in the world, taking that longed-for vacation they have been denied for the past two summers. Will it be the same this year? So far, it doesn’t look as though there will be any significant travel restrictions, but even if they should crop up, there is no reason you can’t go exploring the good old US of A in that RV you were finally going to purchase.
As far as tips go, let’s talk about the practical nature of your bucket list adventures rather than looking at locations. You probably know where you have always wanted to go, but the actual mechanics of a bucket list adventure are often overlooked. So that’s what we should talk about now.
Do you have the right RV insurance for your recreational vehicle
Of course, this is something your insurance provider will probably figure out for you. There are several different kinds of RVs, and the type of insurance you need is dependent upon whether you have a motorhome, a camper, or a trailer. Those are relatively standard classifications within the category of recreational vehicles. Because of this, RV insurance for a trailer will be significantly different from RV Insurance with coverage for a motorhome that is a self-contained model you drive.
In most states, you would need liability, bodily injury, and property damage as minimum requirements. If your RV motorhome isn’t 100% paid for, your lender will want you to carry collision and comprehensive coverage to protect their property until the title is transferred to you. Each type of RV carries a unique set of risks, which is why you will pay different premiums based on those risks, as established by insurance actuaries.
Take the time to learn about your recreational vehicle
It is human nature to be so excited that we don’t take the time to read the owner’s manual. But, as dull as that sounds, it really is something you should do before setting out on your first adventure. Yes, that first place you want to stop on your summer bucket list travel adventure is calling you. We hear it too! However, do you know how to hook up all those connections you are just learning the names of? Do you understand how to empty your RV’s holding tank?
If manuals bore you, or if this one seems to be written in an alien language, you can always watch how it’s done on YouTube. For example, can you get the generator going if your RV comes equipped with one, and if you are in a trailer-type RV, do you know how to unhook and seat it securely so that it doesn’t go rolling down the hill while you are asleep for the night? These are pretty important things, wouldn’t you say?
Now it’s time to go exploring
Once you have learned all the mechanical functions of your RV and are pretty confident you won’t have any issues with hooking up water for the sinks or draining the holding tank for toilet and waste water, it’s time to plot your course. This leads us to the very last tip we can offer at this time. Start your adventure on roads that are easy to navigate, and once you become better acquainted with how your RV handles, you can get a little more daring. Until then, take it slowly and drink in every moment of your newfound pleasure.
