It goes without saying that “roughing it” isn’t quite so rough when you’ve got a new recreational vehicle or trailer from our RV dealership near Maryland. After all, RV camping is one of the best ways to bring the essential comforts of home along for the ride when you’re exploring the wide world.
Even in an RV, though, camping for the first time can be a bit intimidating for some folks. Fortunately, the experts at Dylans RV are here to offer a foundation for your list of essentials to help you pack before your first outing. The list falls into two key categories: essentials for you, and essentials for your RV.
What to Bring for You
Begin by running through your typical day and determining which parts of your routine are coming along on the trip. Brushing your teeth, for instance, is an essential, while shaving might not be depending on your preferences. Run through your typical routine and pack toiletries appropriately. Add a basic first aid kit to your list, regardless of whether you’ll be gone for a night or for weeks. Don’t forget any prescriptions you typically take.
Next, run through linens and clothing to ensure everyone is comfortable on your night away. Additionally, you’ll want to cover personal items like phone chargers and other extras, since RV camping adds that perk into the mix!
What to Bring for Your RV
Even if you’re an experienced camper when it comes to roughing it around Maryland, camping in a recreational vehicle comes with its own special needs. Many of your essentials, though, you can stow away in your RV and leave them there permanently so they’re always onboard when you need them.
To keep things running right, you’ll want to have jumper cables, an emergency kit, a tool kit, a sewage hose with the appropriate fittings, spare fuses, extension cords, wheel chocks, and leveling blocks handy. Most of these will last a lifetime if properly cared for. Consumables like RV-friendly toilet paper, though, you’ll want to ensure are stocked before every trip!
If the comfort of an RV sounds like the perfect way for you and your family to explore the great outdoors, then it’s time to get behind the wheel at Dylans RV! Be sure to contact us by calling (856) 228-0090 today.
