Basics for the RV Toolbox

•, Mike Wendland

It's a tantalizing phrase and if you are RVing you have probably been bit by the travel bug and the sense of independence that comes with your RV. 

It seems like people from every walk of life are captured by the idea of a rig all their own. It seems the perfect getaway for families, the perfect retirement plan, the perfect couples retreat, the perfect…the list goes on and on.

But RVing is not for the faint of heart. Before hitting the open road there are some essentials that need to be added to the RV toolbox.

First up – Do you know how to use these tools?

First on the list, if at all possible, is someone who can actually use the tools that you have in the toolbox. 

To be really successful, it helps if this person is a jack-of-all-trades. 

If traveling with someone, ideally one of those people needs to be an optimist and one needs to be able to tackle the nuts and bolts. The roles don't have to be exclusive, but both roles are necessary. 

Traveling alone? RVers are equivalent to the pioneers of old: tough, resilient, able to solve problems, dreamers of epic proportions, wanderers, independent, alive.
