Space even in an RV can sometimes feel limited. While there is no doubt that the space you have in a recreational vehicle is substantial compared to the space you have in a car, the fact is that you can still run out of space. If you’ve owned an RV for a while, then you already know that while an RV can be quite large, the space isn’t limitless. And this means that you do need to prioritize and think carefully about what you will be bringing with you on your trip. Let’s take a look at a few ways that you can make the most out of your space and maybe even save some money in the process.
The first step towards using your RV space in a prudent fashion is to make certain that everyone that is traveling with you understands that there are space limitations. Part of the reason that you bought an RV was so that you felt as though you had the space needed to move around. Having that space cluttered up with unnecessary items is just depressing. Here are a few ideas for how you can get more out of your RV space.
Make a Checklist of Necessary Items and Edit It. Well, before your travel day, it’s a good idea to take a little time and make a checklist. This list should have all the necessary items that you are planning on bringing. Once you have your checklist, it’s also smart to edit it down so that you are only bringing what you are completely sure you need. Many people wait to the last second to decide what they are packing for their trip, and the fact is it not only causes stress but it can also cost money!
Save Money on Gas. The more weight in your RV, the more gas money you will spend. Extra weight is money, and this is especially true on long trips. Any way that you can find to eliminate some weight is a good idea. After all just think about all your options for what you can do with the money you save. That money can be spent on an extra day of vacation, a better RV mattress, another day at an amusement park or any score of fun activities.
Smart Planning Means Saving Gas Money. By only taking what you need and finding smaller, lighter weight versions of items you need to bring effectively reduces your weight. Less weight means you will spend less money at the gas pump. Of course, this means more money for fun items like amusement park ticket and life enhancing items like a high-quality RV mattress.
