5 Quick Tips for Successful Camping
As you prepare for the camping months to come, it’s
important to ensure that you’ve properly prepared for a trip. If you haven’t
already, review our Airstream & RV Travel Essentials blog. In this blog, we
share with you some other camping tips to help make the most of your camping
1.) Make sure that you’ve made any reservations that may be needed on your trip. Nothing is worse than arriving at the perfect campsite and having no available space. Depending on the popularity of the site you may consider making reservations anywhere from 3 months to 1 year in advance.
2.) Measure your Airstream or RV height to avoid driving through low building canopies or other hard to maneuver paths.
3.) Be conservative. Practice using resources sparingly, such as, filling the sink to do dishes and turning off your water heater/furnace when not in use. You may also want to consider installing solar panels to keep your RV batteries charged. It may also help to invest in a surge protector.
4.) Keep yourself protected from nature. Make sure that you’re familiar with the different types of poison plants that may be around your campsite such as poison ivy. Also, be sure to bring along tick & mosquito deterrents such as tree oil and sage.
5.) Be overprepared. Having a few more resources than needed when camping is never a bad idea. Extra items such as trail marking tape, coolers, toiletries and linens could come in handy when you least expect it, but need it most.
