RV road trips are all about making memories with your family and friends. But when it comes to traveling as a family and meeting everyone's travel wants and needs, those travel memories can turn from good to bad pretty quickly. Follow these simple tips to ensure your next road trip is filled with fun, laughter, excitement and those unforgettable moments you'll still be talking about years from now.

Keep Everyone Informed

Communication amongst your family members is key when ensuring a good time on the road. Make sure everyone knows exactly where you're headed and how long the trip is going to take. Sit down together and map out your route together as a family.

Make Plenty of Stops

It's tough to stop often when your main concern is "making good time," but the RV lifestyle is more about the journey than the destination. Let each of your family members choose a spot they'd like to stop along the route, whether it's a unique restaurant, a roadside attraction or a fun new town.

Get Out In Nature

Choose certain stopping points based on your natural surroundings. Taking an hour-long hike in a state park or seeking out a geocache destination in the wild is a great way to forget about all of the road time you've put in. You'll hop back in the driver's seat rejuvenated and relaxed.

Stay Flexible

A huge perk of the RV lifestyle is that you don't have to be anywhere at a certain time, and the worst thing you can do is make dinner reservations for the night of your arrival. Give yourself plenty of time to get to your destination, and allow yourself the option to leave if you're not enjoying it. Having plans set in stone can add a huge amount of stress to the entire vacation.

Find the Perfect RV

The RV you use for your travels can have a big effect on how good or bad the memories you make on the road turn out. If your family has outgrown your dingy old RV, come shop at Bent's RV Rendezvous for a top-quality new or used motorhome, travel trailer, fifth wheel or toy hauler.
