Camping is America’s favorite pass time. Today more and more people are taking to the open road and giving up elaborate vacations from some downtime in the woods. If you have never experienced this, we certainly recommend you try it ASAP. In this day and age, everyone is tied to some device. Going camping gets you away from the screens and back to nature. It gives you time with family and friends as nothing else can. And, when going in an RV is it a home away from home.
Camping in an RV gives you the best of both worlds. You are able to enjoy the outdoors but have a nice warm dry bed at the end of the day. It doesn’t matter if it rains all night as you are tucked away comfy and cozy. RV has all the amenities that you could ask for, there will be places to sleep, but more have an onboard bathroom complete with shower and a kitchen to cook with.
Bring the Indoors Out
Many people that choose the RV lifestyle like to bring the indoors outside as well. They typically will carry a large outdoor rug that will be put down on the ground, a grill and other cooktops will be added to a fold-out table. This makes cooking much easier and you are not all cramped inside the camper. However, if it is a raining one, you can all go inside and play cards, or enjoy some popcorn from the onboard microwave.
Speaking of cards, bring some games! Now is a great time to teach the kids about some of the classics. If you have games laying around, bring them along, this goes for outdoor games as well. Or you can make some amazing outdoor games, which we have suggested on another page.
Choose your Camping Style
There are many campground styles out there to choose from when RVing. This is really up to you and what you are comfortable with. Some offer what they call full hookups. This is where you can hook your RV up with full running water and sewer. This is really nice as you have little cleanup time and you can use your own facilities and not have to share them with others. However, this is a non-rustic style of camping, it is still very enjoyable. You can also choose to have a non-hook up site, which is where your RV is fully powered on its own with water tanks full and such. This allows you a bit more rustic style but still offers a nice bed to sleep in at night and your own restroom and kitchen.
RVing and Camping promote togetherness. Not only are you together inside the camper, but you can sit around the fire together, go on bike trails and overall enjoy yourselves as a family. It is a great way to get teens to talk and little ones get your one on one time. These memories will last a lifetime and they will cherish them as they get older.
