Use these Camping Tips or There's a good chance as a Newbee Rver you will not have a fun filled camping vacation.
Don't worry, It's all good. We're all been there at one time or another. Maybe like myself you were introduced to Rver family camping, if so, you have a leg up on first Timers.
Not to worry, you'll catch up but wouldn't it be nice to avoid these mistakes before hand. perchance you would avoid the Curse of the Newbee's?
Pay it forward begins as you learn for those who came before.
Need an RV Renting checklist? What to expect when renting an RV? Here are a few things to add to your checklist before you rent an RV such as:

On many family vacations we renting large, small, big and tall Rv's and Travel Trailers.
When your rent a RV etc, make sure you do a walking around with your sugnificate other (their into the details).

A good example on one of our rentals, we traveled 100's of miles before we were almost involved in a accident.The other driver claimed we didn't have breaklights or directionals and we didn't.
Camping tips, forget to raise and store the electric stairs of your rv. If you're lucky someone near your campsite will let you know before the damage and the cost.
Check list particularly for Newbees important. As a USAF pilot trainee, I can attest that pilots check list was strapped to your leg. Must be for a good reason, you think!

5) Your RV or Travel Trailer is Not Your Family Car. Gotta ask yourself do you have the skills to drive one?
They're very large, not very maneuverable and take a lot of confidence and practice to drive well.
Stopping distance is markedly longer. Turning radius is much larger. Backing up can be a challenge – use a spotter. Ask for help from fellow campers, they're a friendly bunch.
No check list , I forgot can be heard as you leave the campsite still connected to shore power and water connections.
Could be a safety disaster, a costly problem and a major bump in the road on your vacation.
Once you arrive at your destination, set-up your campsite, get out the bbq, set the pinic table and then you need to run to the store. Ops...I only have a 40' 12 wheel Gargantuan RV. What are you going to use to run to the store?
After all, mistakes on family trips are what make some of the most memorable stories down the road.
No one remembers the days on vacation when nothing goes wrong. The stories that get told time and time again (usually beginning with “remember that time…”) are usually the ones that started out with something going wrong.
Luckily, they tend to get funnier overtime and once you make an RVing mistake once, you can learn from it, remember the story, and be ready for the next mistake that does come your way.
