“Staying Healthy While RVing”

If you’re the good RV owner we know you are, you doubtless stay on top of maintenance for your motor home. You get the tires checked, the oil changed, and the clear coat shiny. Do you pay the same care to your own health? One of the most common New Year’s resolutions is to get in better shape, and for good reason. It’s easy to avoid healthy food and exercise, but RV trips are a great opportunity to maintain a fit lifestyle.

Yeah, yeah, yeah…RV trips are vacations, and they are about having fun, but who says that being healthy can’t be fun, too?

One of the best things about RV travel is the ability to prepare food in your own kitchen, no matter how far you are from your brick-and-mortar home. Use that opportunity to try new recipes and prepare healthier eating options.

While you’re out visiting some of the most incredible places in North America, get outside! Bring bicycles along and go for a ride along the trails available at many parks, or go for a walk on the same and enjoy the beauty of nature while exercising. Even if you don’t have nature trails nearby, go for an evening walk while the sun sets. Taking in the scenery is a perfect way to reward yourself for being healthy.

When you’re away from home, it can be easy to abandon good habits, but being out on the road, you have plenty of time and opportunity to take steps towards good health and plenty of ways to make it fun and exciting. This is one resolution you should definitely keep this year!

3 Mistakes Every RV Owner Must Avoid

Mistakes of RVer's LifeTo many, RV living is the best living. Of course, you too think the same, else why would you be here? But, things can go wrong in your personal paradise. Why? Because we are mere mortals prone to making mistakes. However, in most cases you can easily bypass them. In this blog, we will discuss about three mistakes that you must avoid to make your trip happy and memorable.

Traveling with TV Antenna Up

It may happen that you went to bed quite late last night after watching an exciting soccer game. You got up early according to your schedule and started driving. But, as the roof of your RV brush against a low branch of a tree, you hear a loud clanking noise and that is when you realize, ‘Oh God, I didn’t pull the TV antenna down last night!’

So, if you have the habit of watching TV or listening to the radio on a trip, make sure you have a pre-trip checklist. You must walk around the vehicle and pull the antennas down before turning the engine on.

Not Monitoring the Height of Your RV

Who doesn’t want to go on a long trip in a big RV! But a bigger RV a bit more planning on your part. Look for RV campgrounds where you can comfortably park your vehicle. Also, check out the route of the trip before setting out. Low bridges might pose a problem, so double-check it. After all, you wouldn’t want to damage the air conditioner or radio antenna due to your negligence.

Neglecting RV Battery Maintenance

If you have been maintaining everything inside your RV except the battery, you better avoid doing so. God save you if the batteries die in the middle of nowhere. Try not to forget recharging the RV batteries or checking their status. Else your RV can sustain technical damages, which will be expensive to repair.

Traveling is fun only if you are doing it the right. So, be watchful and avoid these errors to enjoy a great trip.

5 Signs You are a Born Rv-ER

RV living

RV-ing is fun, adventurous, and intriguing. But unfortunately, it isn’t for everyone. Are you cut out for the RV lifestyle?  There are some sure-shot signs to know.

1.You love to travel

If the great outdoors attract you, RV-ing is probably a great option for you. The flexibility that it offers makes it easier for you to explore new places and unknown terrains. If you are passionate enough about traveling, you can see a lot of the country in a fairly short period of time.

2.You love freedom

RV-ing and freedom goes hand in hand. I mean, isn’t that the whole point? If you have a keen ear for what your heart says and a sharp mind to follow it anywhere, yes you are made for RV-ing. If you dare enough to take the plunge and go for full-time RV living, you will not only say good-bye to a fixed spot, but also to apartment leases and home mortgage. You can’t get more freedom than this!

3.You love meeting new people

When you are RV-ing, the entire world can be your neighbor. Campgrounds are a great place to meet new people and make new friends. Many campsites organize events that let people socialize. These events typically include campfires with singing and storytelling. You could even make friends at the campground laundry room! The possibilities are huge once you think beyond your apartment community or friends.

4.You don’t mind either cooking or eating out

When you are out RV-ing, you will be stopping at a lot of remote places. Chances are, there won’t be many fancy supermarkets. However, it is a great chance to flex your culinary skills and cook up some quick dishes using the local produce. And, when you find a food joint, you can always give RV-ing a break and munch on some delicacies. Sounds fun? Yep, you are one more step closer to being the born RV-er.

5.You have some handyman skills

Like most other things, RV-ing cannot be all fun and game. Just like your home, there will days when you need to take care of a leak here or a damage there. Are you up for the challenge? On the brighter side, these days will pass. You don’t have a faucet leaking forever, do you?

Fun and challenge are two sides of the same coin when you are talking about RV-ing. The question is, are you up for it? If yes, then nothing should stop you from following your true nature. Here’s to road trips, raccoons, and RVs.
