Want An Awesome Vacation? Choose The Right RV Resort

Posted on

Choosing a destination for an RV vacation is less about the location and more about what the resort destination has to offer. In fact, if you make the mistake of choosing the wrong location, your vacation probably won't be very desirable. Learn what you need to know before your vacation to ensure you have an awesome time.

Hookup Stations

If you want to keep your vacation as convenient as possible and enjoy the luxuries that your RV has to offer, the resort should offer hookup stations for their RV guests. Each station should offer a connection for water, sewer, and electricity. 

In terms of the electric component, make sure you know how many amps your RV needs to support all its functions. All RV connections do not offer the same level of amps per hookup. If you have this information, you can make sure you make the right selection for your specific needs. 

Outdoor Space

An enjoyable RV vacation involves spending time inside the vehicle, as well as outside. Whether you want to grill for dinner, spend some time away from the family reading, or you simply want to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning, you should look for a resort that offers each guest enough outdoor space. 

Unfortunately, some resorts have a goal of packing in as many guests as they can. As a result, there is only enough space between each RV to walk through, not sit out chairs or a grill. Check out the specs for each RV parking spot.

Suitable Ground Conditions

Look for an RV resort that keeps the protection of your vehicle in mind. Ideally, you want to look for a resort that has concrete pads for each RV to park on. The smoother the surface the better your RV is protected. Concrete pads make it easier to navigate into your designated area because they provide a stable surface for driving. 

On the contrary, an RV resort that is covered with gravel or grass is often uneven, which makes it harder to drive and if it rains, it increases the risk of the RV getting stuck in the mud. Either scenario isn't any fun to navigate.

When it comes to choosing an RV resort, it's very important that you keep your personal needs at the forefront. The above-mentioned tips are a great starting point, but make sure you tailor the list to your exact needs.
