7 Things to Leave Behind on Your Next RV Trip



When it comes to packing up the RV and heading out on the road, you might live by the idea that you’re “better safe than sorry.” While that might be a good tactic in other areas of life, it might not be the greatest when you’re packing up the RV. Here are a few things you can feel good about leaving behind:

Your laptop

You might have grand ideas about getting some work in on your trip, but let’s be honest; you won’t. And that laptop will just be a liability that you’ll worry about. Leave it home!

Firewood

Sure, you’ll pay more for firewood at the campground or at a convenience store. Deal with it. The weight and mess of carrying it with you isn’t worth saving a few dimes.

Canned food

Unless you’re heading into the wilds of Alaska, don’t feel the need to pack the pantry full of canned goods you won’t eat. Take what you need for the trip, or buy it along the way. Newsflash: there are grocery stores in other states too!

Water

Do you know how much a drum of water weighs? Well, a lot! Keep those tanks close to empty and you’ll get better gas mileage. Don’t worry; you’ll be able to tap into the campground’s water supply.

Tools

Any good RV operator needs a few standard tools, like a wrench, screwdriver set and the all-important roll of duct tape. But don’t feel the need to bring the entire tool section of Home Depot with you on your trip.

Fancy cookware

When it comes to camping, the key to a simple, relaxing time is quick and easy meals. That means leaving the food processor, bread machine and other fancy kitchenware at home. Opt for one-pot dinners that are quick, easy and use minimal ingredients; stews from canned foods are always great options.

Bad attitudes

Camping is all about rolling with the punches – and having a great time, come what may. This isn’t possible if you’ve got some bad attitudes on board, so be sure to leave those behind. Happy campers only!
