1. RV Tips

  2. Selecting a Good Site


    When you are lucky enough to pull into a park where you can choose your site, here are a few things to bear in mind:

    * Where is the sun? And what is its path, relative to how the site is oriented? You may want to avoid a site where the sun will be beating down on your patio area, just when you want to be out enjoying the late afternoon and evening. On the other hand, you might want to take advantage of a spectacular sunset view, if you are equipped with an awning shade.

    * Where are the restrooms? Some people want to be near the restrooms and/or showers. Others may want to be far away. If it makes a difference to you, take a look around.

    * Another bit of RV advice is to look at the traffic pattern within the campground. If you don't want a lot of cars or foot traffic going past your site, then check it out as you make your selection. Or you might want to be right in the thick of things.

    * Is there sufficient space? Ideally, you will have a site big enough for your tow vehicle and RV.
