10 Hints to making your Motorhome trip a success

By September 8, 2020 December 13th, 2020 No Comments

1. PLANNING

Plan your itinerary, you don’t have to strictly stick to it, but you need a plan. Have a plan A and plan B  i.e. A If we like this place, we stay 2 nights, if not we go to B you may be hiring a Motorhome to have freedom, but freedom from anxiety means planning and researching what you will be interested in.  See DriveNow.com.au/itineraries for ideas.

2.  STUFF

Don’t bring too much stuff, you won’t need it.

3. CLOTHES

Bring clothes for all weather condition, but as above, not too many.

4. CAMPSITES

Pre-book campsites at popular destinations to avoid disappointment. Even in winter popular areas can be busy, weekends in particular.

5. IT’S A HOLIDAY

Allow downtime along the way, if you plan your itinerary well there will be some places you just want to ‘sit back and enjoy’. If you are travelling with kids look for campgrounds with a pool, water park, trampolines etc…

This is not work!

6. EVENTS

Check for special events happening during your travel period – festivals, race days and market days.  Some you might want to aim for others avoid.

7. BE ADVENTUROUS

Don’t be afraid to try a non-powered campground, they are often in very special locations.

8. SAFETY (FUN) IN NUMBERS

Invite friends to join you in another motorhome. Its fun to share the experience but still have your own space, especially if you have kids that have been in isolation.

Set up an Instagram site for your trip so friends and family can follow along with your adventures and don’t forget to #drivenowrentals so our family can be inspired.

Respect:

Pay your respects to the traditional owners of the land, Elders past and present. Do this in your social media posts as well.
