RVing Full Time | 4 Essentials When Reserving An RV Camping Area Part 1

December 14, 2011   Filed under Travel

So you have decided to go rving full time and you have already chosen your RV itinerary.

The next step is to now start booking your RV campsites.

So get a pen and paper or just save this article for later use because we’re going to give you four things you should know when picking out your RV campgrounds when full time RVing.

1. Know Your RV Specs

It seems like kind of obvious, but you do need to know the size of your RV. In our case its a 37 ft. Chapparal Fifth Wheel. This means many RV campsites are too small for us; a very important thing to be aware of before calling around or searching on the web. Ensuring the RV camping site will fit your RV is definitely a good thing.

Make sure you have the specifications of your own RV you have not already bought, borrowed, or rented your travel rig, get it done before making reservations. When reserving your RV campsite you might need to know: type, length, number of pullouts, and the kind of hookups that your vehicle requires.

2. Know What Amenities You’ll Need

An important aspect to consider is whether you’ll need an RV park with particular amenities. We already told you about the need for WI-FI when RVing full time or simply plain RVing. Since we work from the road, this is totally necessary for all of us.

We do use and highly recommend acquiring either a laptop wireless stick such as the AT&T GSM USB aircard or the Verizon USB AirCard. Furthermore, having the WI-FI in the RV campsite is a big plus also.

We have actually began to make use of the Samsung 4G Mobile Hotspot through Verizon and it works really well.

As far as other amenitities go, if you would like cable tv and do not have a DISH or DirecTV, then cable hookup is certainly something to ask for.

Although in most new RVs, the antennae gets amazingly good local TV signals. It’s all high definition now so its high quality.
