Do you feel it? Cool breezes are blowing in and nights are getting chilly. Soon the leaves will be performing their yearly fireworks show. Are visions of mountains splashed with bright orange, vibrant yellow, and rich crimson dancing in your head? Are you itching to get out on the road and see it for yourself? Whether this is your first year owning an RV or you’re currently shopping for one, consider these tips to get the most out of your budget.
Travel for less by:
- Shopping for used RVs for sale. If you are acquiring an RV for the first time, buying used is a great way to save money and ease into the camping lifestyle. Travel trailers are a cost-effective option that can be towed by most trucks and SUVs. Airstreams are known to uphold their quality for many years, making them a popular choice for customers buying used travel trailers.
- The smaller the better. Start small with a lightweight, compact travel trailer that will be easy to tow. Travel trailers do not have their own cab and engine, making them less expensive than motorhomes. The lighter your trailer, the better gas mileage you will get out on the road, which will help keep your travel costs down.
- Limit hookups at campgrounds. Most campgrounds and RV parks have full hookup sites available with water, electricity, sewer, and even cable and Wi-Fi. Do you absolutely need all of these amenities? If you can make do with just water and electricity, you can camp for less if the campground offers partial hookups. Unplug from media and enjoy the great outdoors.
- Try dry camping. A lot of national and state parks and other public lands allow dry camping, meaning no hookups at all, no water or electricity. This is often referred to as “boondocking.” You can make use of public restrooms in the area, depending on the location. You pay much lower campground fees due to the lack of hookups and experience a more rustic camping experience.
- Find free overnight parking. Basically parking lot camping, this option allows you to avoid paying any fees to park overnight. Some businesses and truck stops welcome RVs for overnight stays. Some examples include: Walmart, Sam’s Club, Costco, Kmart, Flying J truck stops, and Cracker Barrel restaurants. Of course this is completely dry camping, with no hookups, but your stay is absolutely free.
