Is fall your favorite season to travel? One benefit to traveling during the fall season is the lighter traffic in RV campgrounds. Here are RV tips to keep in mind when traveling during the fall season.
According to an article at plazarv.com, “Fall RV Travel Season”
“The fall is one of the best times of the year to take an RV trip. Why? Well, in addition to gorgeous weather, cheaper camping, and less crowds, you also get to enjoy the changing leaves. Before you head out on your fall camping trip you’ll want to check out these fall RV travel tips that will help make your travel easier.
Plan According to Leaves
If your goal is to view the changing colors you’ll want to determine your location according to when the leaves are changing. Now is probably the best time to view leaves up north, while end of October and beginning of November tend to provide great viewing opportunities closer south. Weatherchannel.com has an interactive map that allows you to select your region to determine the best time for viewing.
Leave Early or Bring a Flashlight
Since the sun is starting to set earlier, you’ll have less daylight at your disposal. Practice setting up in the dark, plan to get to your site earlier, or bring a flashlight to make setting up earlier. It’s a pain, but once you’re set up you’ll appreciate everything the fall has to offer. Since you’ll be setting up in the dark (possibly), you’ll want to also make sure you eat before getting to camp, because cooking in the dark, while hungry and tired just isn’t fun.
Keep all of your gear organized so you know exactly where it is. This will prevent you from having to shuffle around looking for items, ease any frustrations, and makes getting set up and packed up easy. Once you get home from work simply throw your organizational tubs into your RV and hit the road.
Bring Extra Blankets
The weather is obviously cooler in the fall. Avoid freezing at night by packing extra blankets and pillows. There’s nothing like coming home from a day out and about and getting tucked under a bunch of cozy blankets. If you don’t have the room for blankets or just don’t want to bother with them, be sure to pack sweaters, jackets, and cozy socks.” To read the entire article click here.
