What Better Way To Go Camping Than In An RV?
One great way to bond with family or friends is to go camping. However, not everyone enjoys going out in the woods to spend several days away from civilization and the comfort of their homes. For some people, camping is synonymous to harsh outdoor living and inconvenience. This is really far from the truth. Today, you can go camping and still enjoy most of the comfort you have at home, if you use a recreational vehicle (RV) for your trip.
A recreational vehicle is a motor vehicle that is equipped with the facilities amenities you will usually find in your homes. Many will have a kitchen that is equipped with a stove, a sink, and a refrigerator so that you can prepare a hot meal during your trips. With this great feature, your camping diet will no longer consist of canned foods and drinks.
An RV has bathroom so cleaning up and maintaining a good hygiene will no longer be a problem. Most people cringe at the thought of not being able to have a decent bath while on the road or not having a toilet to use when nature calls in the middle of nowhere. All these worries will be non-existent if you do your trip on an RV.
Another great feature is that it has comfortable sleeping areas. You can still pitch your tent if you love to sleep outside while gazing at the moon, but having a bed inside the vehicle is a big advantage in case you encounter bad weather or unfriendly terrain, lets face it, a common occurrence if you are RV camping in BC! If you are a frequent traveler, you should know that booking hotel rooms could cause a headache especially during peak seasons. If you travel in an RV, you no longer have to worry where you will be sleeping and it will save you some money too.
Aside from these basic features, recreational vehicles nowadays have been upgraded to add some additional fringe benefits. For instance, new models have sides that can be slid out so that you can expand your living space. They are also equipped with the latest entertainment system, allowing you to watch movies and listen to good music while on the road. Further, since road trips can take a toll on the driver, RV manufacturers have also made sure that emphasis has been placed on designing seats for the driver to allow for better comfort, as well as tools such as GPS and rear-vision cameras have been installed to make driving easier.
If you do not own an RV, you still have the option to rent one, which is more practical if you seldom travel. Their are some local services as well as national chains that rent out RV’s. Have a budget in mind so that you can limit your choices. The added features may be enticing, but they would cost more so if you do not need them just pick an RV that has the basic amenities. Just make sure that the RV you rent is capable of housing the total number of people traveling. Since driving an RV is a bit different from driving a normal car, rental companies will also give you a brief orientation on how to use the RV and maintain its facilities. Do clarify with them what items are not provided with the RV so that you can bring them along. You should also be clear with any limitations to the use of the vehicle and other important details. Once satisfied, you can sign a contract and be on your way to your RV camping trip.
