“The first step is to plan the trip you are taking. Travel guides, magazines, state tourism boards and Internet sites offer valuable information to help plan your trip. Route your trip on a map or from an Internet trip-planning Web site. Here are a couple of helpful links for fuel cost calculations:

Always keep an atlas or maps in the RV or towed vehicle. Driving a motorhome can be stressful, especially if you don’t know the route you will be traveling. Using a GPS system can make traveling much less stressful.

Here are my top 7 trip-planning reminders:

1. Plan your itinerary to include the campgrounds you will be staying at. Give a family member or friend a copy of your itinerary along with the campground contact information. Make campground reservations in advance, especially during the busy travel season.

2. Try to limit your daily driving to 350 miles a day or less. Not only will your trip be more enjoyable, but this will allow plenty of time to get set up at the campground before it gets dark and to enjoy some of the amenities the campground has to offer.

3. Make sure your emergency roadside service plan is up to date. If you don’t have one, you should get one prior to leaving on your trip.

4. Conduct pre-trip checks on your RV” To read the entire article click here.
