There is nothing to compare with a vacation in the sunshine state, especially when that trip takes you there in a small RV. Unlike other mid western states, this state is surrounded by water and all the fun that you can squeeze into your time away from home. Depending on the time of the year, a trip to Florida can also mean a get away from the cold winter months. When planning your trip in a small RV, there are a few things to prepare ahead of time, such as your planned route and expected over stop overs. Planning your Florida route and making reservations ahead of time, like with any trip, will save you from arriving to a “no vacancy” sign, a fact that can turn a well planned trip into a major inconvenience.
One of the greatest things about traveling in a small RV, is the convenience of having all of your necessities right there with you. For one thing, the trip there is much more relaxing, as it seems to start from the time you pull out of your driveway. Prepare a list of everything that you will need to have in your home away from home, as this will avoid you having to stop and buy “missed items” once you have arrived. Two heads are always better than one, so don't try doing it all by yourself, ask your spouse (or significant other) to double check your plans and and your packing list, that way you are both in agreement. Before leaving for your Florida trip, evaluate and keep a log of mechanical issues, such as oil, water, propane and other needed fluids.
Depending on the length of your stay in the sunshine state and what sights you plan on seeing, a small RV can be an ideal way to get there. Trips to theme parks can be less costly as you will have all of your conveniences in the parking lot where you can step outside, have lunch, rest up if you need to and return for more fun. In a similar fashion, there is no need to spend lots of money on drinks and food at the concession stand when visiting one of the local beaches, as you will have everything you need for your Florida trip, right in your home away from home. Forget the public bathrooms, you brought your own with you. Could a trip to the sunshine state be any better than this?
