Pack your Glamping shirt because we are renting an RV for the first time! Here are eight things you need to know right now about renting an RV for the first time:
#1 If you do not enjoy camping, you will like using a Recreational Vehicle. If this is your first time renting a Recreational Vehicle, you will do fine. Newbies will discover that renting an RV for the first time is easy! If you are a non-camper, renting an Motor Vehicle is the way to go.

    Thank you for this! My husband and I are starting to plan a trip to Utah with our 4 year old. There has s no way I would travel West (we’re in central Texas) without free access to a bathroom.
    One question: do most campsites have laundry access?

    O beautiful for spacious skies,
    For amber waves of grain,
    For purple mountain majesties
    Above the fruited plain!
    America! America!
    God shed His grace on thee
    And crown thy good with brotherhood
    From sea to shining sea!

    Wow Laurie I felt like I'm not a first timer anymore! Glamping 🙋that's me! My first RV was a Travel Trailer and it felt like camping. Now, I have a motorized unit so it feels more Glamorous 👑

    If a campsite doesn't have a water hookup at each site does it usually have a place to fill up your water tank somewhere in the campground? If not, how do you refill during a trip?

    thanks for the helpful tips about traveling in an RV. The towels never feeling dry and the boxed AC in the RV, which leaves you with a damp feeling is a major issue with me so I will make my first trip is only three or four days.
