Making Friends on the Road

Making Friends on the Road

Hitting the open road with your motorhome is exciting, but it can also be lonely. People are social creatures and that doesn't change when you travel. With a little effort, it's easy to make new friends on the road. We gathered up our favorite tips to meet people below. For all your camper needs, visit RV Station - Colbert. You'll find us in Colbert, Oklahoma.



How to Meet People

Your first step is to meet people. When you travel in a motorhome, you cross paths with many potential new friends. Even when you take your camper to remote locations, you'll still come across people. Use these strategies to meet new people.

Creative Conversation Starters

You can do better than "Hi, my name is ______. What's your name?" Better conversation starters help things flow more naturally. Offer someone a drink such as a beer or coffee. Walk your precious pup around and chat with those who ask to pet her. Proudly wear a t-shirt showing off your favorite show, hobby, or pastime. A fellow fanatic could see it and strike up a conversation. Try to focus on approaches that don't make the conversation feel forced and you'll enjoy a better connection.

Be Outside Your Motorhome

You won't meet people staying cooped up inside your camper! You need to be out and about where other people are. It's as simple as setting up a chair outside and chatting up those who pass. Some people even put up a sign inviting others to join their meals or campfires.

Join a Group

You can use the internet to foster connections, too! There are plenty of camper enthusiast groups you can join. You could own a new or used RV or use a teardrop trailer or a Class A Motorhome. If you own a camper, you belong in these communities!

Some of these groups are made specifically with motorhome travelers in mind, such as Escapees. Others are sub-groups of larger social organizations, such as Meetup. Both allow you to meet fellow travelers, trade travel strategies, attend events, and more! You can connect with people online and set up in-person interactions when you both get to the campsite.

How to Build Friendships

Once you meet someone exciting, the next step is to build that relationship. The fastest way to friendship is sharing memories together! You need to coordinate a way to spend time together. Cook them a meal in your motorhome. Go on a hike together. Visit a tourist attraction. Find an activity you both enjoy and go do it. The more time you can spend together, the closer you will get.

How to Stay in Touch

Eventually, the time will come for you each to return to your camper and go home. Before you say goodbye, coordinate a way to stay in touch. Maybe you exchange business cards. Maybe you add each other on your social media. Maybe you swap emails or phone numbers. Find what works for you both. You'll be grateful you have the means of reaching out and staying in touch. You never know - you may be able to cross paths again someday!
