Do’s and Don’ts When Traveling Alone by RV

Traveling alone by RV is a great way to make the most of your destinations. You get to choose the places you want to visit, stop for the day whenever and wherever you choose and you get to save money on the costs of hotels and restaurants. There are many adventures awaiting you; however, when traveling alone there are also do’s and don’ts that you need to keep in mind. Parker Preferred Insurance has put together some important dos and don’ts for the residents of Dallas or McKinney, TX who are traveling alone by RV.

Don’t Invite Strangers In

When traveling alone by RV, you will meet a lot of fun and interesting people, but it’s important that you use precautions as well. You should never invite a stranger into your RV and never give out any of your personal information to a stranger, including the fact that you are traveling alone or where you are going next.

Do Know Your Next Destination

Although it’s fun to let your instincts guide you on where to go next, it is also important that once you have a general idea of your next location you have a stopping point in mind. As soon as possible, make sure you choose a campground and call ahead for reservations. Once you know where you will be parking, be sure to enter the directions into your GPS right away. If at all possible, avoid stopping for the night at isolated campgrounds and you should not park overnight in shopping center parking lots. The safest place to park is at reputable campgrounds.

Do Let Family Know Your Plans

Be sure to update your family and friends about your plans. You should let someone know where you will be going, the route you plan to take and when your expected arrival date is. This is especially important if you will be traveling during inclement weather or to a location that you are unfamiliar with.

The most important thing is to “don’t forget to have fun” but it’s equally important that you travel safely, so always keep your cell phone handy and learn how to do simple repairs, such as changing a blown tire.
