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/itineraries for ideas
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
Pre-book campsites at popular destinations to avoid disappointment. Even in winter popular areas can be busy, weekends in particular. – Pictured BIG4 Tweed Billabong
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!
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.
9. LOCAL KNOWLEDGE
Talk to other travellers, camping ground managers and local information centres along the way, find some hidden gems off the beaten track.
10. INSPIRE OTHERS
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.
Special mention: Pay your respects to the traditional owners of the land, Elders past and present. Do this in your social media posts as well.
