RV it up!


Are you one of the many Americans longing to get on the road these days and get out of town with your family?  A trip in a Recreational Vehicle, or RV, may be the perfect choice for you to safely travel in comfort this year.

RVs are viewed by many as a safer traveling option for 2020.  They give you the ability to sleep in your own bed, use your own bathroom, and eat in your own space away from crowded areas.  To have a safe and successful RV road trip this year, you will need to prepare for both the traveling and the places you want to experience.  Making reservations at an RV Park prior to leaving will ensure you have a secured space at a campsite.  Call ahead to know what the campgrounds require for safety measures, such as masks, and to learn of their hygiene capabilities.  If you will be traveling out of state, it is a good idea to research the state’s guidelines and restrictions to be prepared in advance.

It is also important to know how to drive an RV if you plan to travel in one.  If you are renting an RV, you may need some training, as they handle very differently from a standard sized car.  RVs come in many shapes and sizes, and it is a good idea to practice on the road before you take a long trip.

RV travel has become more and more popular, especially as we Americans face limited travel options and want to stay safe.  Both summer and fall seasons are popular times to see RVs out on the road.  Driving an RV, or in a vehicle near an RV, can be hazardous.  Stay vigilant and aware of other travelers around you, and do your best not to take unnecessary risks.  Remaining safe out on the road should be your top concern when it comes to traveling in an RV.

In addition, making sure that you are properly insured will give you peace of mind when accidents do happen.  To find out if you have the proper insurance you need for renting or owning an RV, or for any insurance inquiries, contact your agent today.
