RV Checklist For Before You Travel

We’ve all left for vacation and been hit with the nagging feeling that something important was left behind. And while the typical road-tripper will often forget replaceable items like a toothbrush or mobile phone charger, RV safety equipment like a breakaway switch, umbilical cord, sway bars and safety chains might be harder to find at the local hardware store.

To make your next RV excursion a bit more organized, we created a simple RV  checklist PDF that you can print out and take with you. It’s divided into two sections: “Before you hit the road…” and “Setting up your site…” We can’t promise you won’t forget a toothbrush, but using this checklist can help you keep track of the RV essentials.
