Planning Your RV Getaway for Valentine’s Day

Now that we’ve shared a handful of destinations for your upcoming RV road trip let’s discuss how to plan the best getaway.

Choosing the Right RV

When renting an RV, consider size, amenities, and ease of driving. For couples, smaller Class B or C RVs often provide the perfect balance of comfort and maneuverability. We recommend the Compact RV rental option for couples.

Packing Essentials

Pack for the unexpected. Along with your usual travel items, include outdoor gear, a first-aid kit, and some basic tools for the RV. You will also want to pack for some quick and easy RV meals. Don't forget cozy blankets and ingredients for s'mores!

Planning Your Route

Research your destinations, but leave room for spontaneity. Consider downloading RV apps to make the planning process simpler. Part of the RV adventure is discovering hidden gems along the way.

Campground Reservations

While spontaneity is a perk of RV travel, booking your campground in advance, especially during peak seasons like Valentine’s Day, is recommended to secure the best spots.
