A SECOND guest article submitted to Route 66 World… This article is something most of us think about while planning our trip on Route 66, but most never really look into. I like what I am reading in this article!

Are you ready to hit the road for your dream RV vacation traveling to all of the unique and interesting places Route 66 has to offer? Pack your bags, load the motor home, and prepare for the sightseeing adventure of a lifetime.

Owning an RV will help save loads of money on vacations and you don’t have to break the bank to own a vacation on wheels. Camper insurance is relatively inexpensive, you save money on lodging and restaurants each time you travel, and you get the convenience of having everything you need at your fingertips.

This is Not a Dream

You can honestly own the RV of your dreams for less than you think. If you are considering purchasing an RV for your dream vacation, but are not sure if you can afford it, just shop around for camping insurance quotes and see how little it will take to get you on the road. Understanding the basics of auto and camper insurance will make you confident that the policy you choose will take care of everything you need when you are traveling. If you want to see what rates can run you for an RV, check The Hartford for discounts that could save you a lot of money, which could be useful on your vacation.

If you aren’t in the market to buy your own RV just yet, you can still go on your dream RV vacation. You can get some great deals on renting a motor home for your road trip vacation. There are many companies that specialize in leasing RVs of all shapes and sizes. Simply choose the motor home that best suits your needs, select camper insurance to make sure you are covered for your trip, and you are ready to hit the highway!

Here are a few tips that can help you plan the perfect RV vacation:

Size Matters

Whether you are renting an RV or own one of your own, make sure you have enough room for your passengers. Nothing ruins a vacation faster than a cramped and overcrowded RV.

Take Time to See the Sites

Don’t be in such a rush to get there. The journey is half of the fun, so try to drive at a leisurely pace and don’t exceed 400 miles per day. Also be sure to stop and see the sites and take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to explore.

Be Flexible

Know that things will not go perfectly as planned, so be prepared to relax and go with the flow if unexpected things happen.

Soak in the Local Culture

Whether it is your destination, or a stop along the way, try to immerse yourself in the local culture of the area. Eat at locally owned restaurants, shop for goods from local artisans, and buy fresh local produce, meat, and area specialties.

No matter where you want to go, traveling on Route 66, or the mountains to the beaches of the U.S., there is absolutely no better way to see our beautiful country than behind the wheel of a motor home. Get out and explore, take your time to stop at all of the popular sites, and relax and enjoy the company of your traveling companions.
