Planning a road trip in an RV is a great way to see the country and also providing time to explore areas that normally might be a quick pass through on you way to somewhere else. If you are the designated RV road trip planner, there are a multitude of things you must consider as you plan the trip. Of course, the main consideration is to have fun and explore parts of the country that you may not have experience before the current road trip, so don’t forget to include the best scenic drives that you can find.
The typical RV road trip planner is looking for the best scenic drives and roads and areas to explore when researching an adventure. If your RV setup consist of drivable recreation vehicle only, then driving the most scenic roads and staying in the most scenic locations is a high priority, since your mobility will be limited once you reach a destination. If your setup consist of a recreation vehicle which can be separated from either a tow vehicle, or a towable support vehicle, then you have more leeway to explore an area after reaching a destination or campground. Having an independent vehicle that can be utilized to explore great driving roads and surrounding area, makes an adventure more enjoyable and opens up possibilities that might not be feasible with a large vehicle.
Some roads and areas are restrictive in terms of the size of vehicle that is allowed, and if you are required to turn around, that can be a challenge all in itself. We have encountered several roads that indicated that vehicles of a certain size or length is not allowed, and also roads where the pavement suddenly ends, with limited room to turn around, even for a small car. Unfortunately, during our journeys, we have encountered recreation vehicles, stuck in tunnels, or damaged because that nice two lane road turns into a narrow rock or tree overhung road. Utilizing the Roads ToGo driving road videos, allows you to access great driving roads, which may or may not be right for your vehicle. Road requirement for a small SUV with a one person trailer, differs from those of a full sized class A RV with a stacker trailer. Its your call, so be careful.
Similarly, the majority of RV’s are meant for pavement only, however, there are RV’s that are rough and tuff enough to go off road when the pavement ends. Some of the roads illustrated in the Roads ToGo driving road video series, come to an end at high mountain passes, where parking and turn around space is limited. Sometimes, a gravel road extends out from these high mountain passes, where more adventures await for those with a true off road RV. So it is time to place the mail on hold, pack up the family and pets, and begin the best RV road trip that you have ever dreamed of taking.
