Road trips are tons of fun and a great way to get closer to your family but can be stressful if you don’t bring the right things. Here are a few things to pack in your RV to help get you where you are trying to go.
A way to organize your RV
When you are in a car for multiple hours you do not want to feel like you are surrounded by all of your stuff. Not everything can be tucked away in the trunk, so you need a place to put all the items. Have your kids pack a bag to have with them in the car, they can put all of their books and games and keep them there when they aren’t using it. You should also bring a car organizer for the items that you or the kids want out of the bag. This will keep everything organized and off the floor.
An emergency kit for your RV
The worst thing that could happen during your road trip is something happening to your RV and not being prepared. That’s why it’s always better to be safe than sorry. Pack an emergency kit that you have made or one that you bought in a store. Make sure it includes tools, jumper cables, and anything else you would need for roadside help. Also, check if your insurance provides any roadside assistance in case you aren’t able to fix the problem yourself.
A way to keep your food cool
While on your trip you will want a way to store any food you bring with you or that you get along the way. A personal fridge can plug into your RV and won’t take up too much room or you can bring a cooler filled with ice packs to keep your food cool. Bringing your own food for the trip is a great way to save money and time. Without having to rely on finding a restaurant to stop at you and your family can enjoy the drive and stop when you’d like.
A trash can
During a long road trip, you are bound to end up with some trash. Avoid losing trash between the seats by getting an RV trash can. You can find one that is the perfect size for your RV and won’t get in the way. They vary in different styles. Some can hang on the back of seats while others can sit up on their own.
A phone mount
Although many RVs have GPS built in, if you are planning to use your phone for GPS or to play music, you’re going to want a phone mount. Phone mounts come in many different forms. You can get one that you mount on your windshield, dash, air vent, or even ones that go into your CD player. Taking your eyes off the road can be dangerous so buying a phone mount is not only convenient but also can make your road trip a lot safer. You may want to try a couple out before you find the perfect fit for you.
