Get the best camp site with these great camping tips.

Toy Hauler from Open Range purchased from Lerch RV

No matter how nice a camp ground is, it can all be ruined if you are stuck with a bad spot to stay in.  So what is the most ideal spot to park your rig and enjoy the camp ground to its fullest.  There are a lot of factors to take into consideration, and you may not always be able to do all of them, but if you follow some simple guidelines, your camping experience will be a lot less about complaining about your surroundings, and more about having fun.

Here are some tips from RV Basics for what to look for when choosing where to park your RV for camping….

  • If you’ve arrived at an unfamiliar campground ask the campground hosts for a detailed map and have a quick drive or hike around and make a list of some possible campsite locations.
  • Do not take a site that has camping items but no vehicle as it could belong to RV owners who aren’t on site for the day.
  • Always arrive ear;y if possible. You can rest assured the best campsites will be taken if you arrive late in the afternoon.
  • Camp at least 200-300 feet away from water, this keeps you out of traffic zone and bug free.
  • Make sure there are trees to hang your garbage and food up wind outside of camp.
  • Set up camp away from other campers and away from any trails.
  • If you love the idea of waking up in a warm location set up camp under the morning sun. You will also have the advantage of being shielded from hot sun later in the day.
  • Avoid setting up camp in tall grassy locations as they are a wonderland for insects.
  • Never camp at the bottom of cliffs with loose rocks.
  • Become familiar with flora and avoid all areas with poison ivy.
  • Get the best protection from lightning by camping near a dense grouping of trees, all the same height in a low area away from water.
  • Make sure the site is large enough to meet all your needs.
  • Think about what would happen to your site in the event of a storm.
  • Consider the location of bathroom facilities (if applicable).
  • Water is absolutely critical for camping. You will need it for washing, drinking and cooking so ensure that you have a water source nearby to your camp site.
  • If rain is expected locate your campsite in a flood free area.
  • Never modify an area by removing vegetation and rocks to create the perfect campsite. The perfect campsite is never created by man but has already been made by Mother Nature.
  • Find an area free of tree roots and rocks. If you’ve found the perfect location but there’s a problem with small rocks gently rake them away to create a smooth level for sleeping on.
  • Never camp on a ridge. You are too exposed to severe wind and lightning conditions.
  • Avoid sharing a site with campers who are not part of your group. There’s plenty of land to go around and every camper is entitled to some personal space.

Protecting your Fur-child from harm while RVing.

Camping is for the dogs at Lerch RV

Camping is for the dogs...

RVing/camping is a family experience, and that includes our furry friends or better known to some as our ‘fur-children’.  If you RV with a pet, then you know how much they add to the camping experience.  Whether it is added security, or just a reliable companion, your pets need to be protected as much as possible.  While there are many things to take into consideration when caring for your pets on the road while traveling, there are three main concerns that you must keep in mind at all times.

Here’s the big three pet dangers from RV Basics:

      1. Disease
        Perhaps the top danger of the road is disease. Regardless of what type of pet a person brings with them, that pet comes in contact with a wide variety of germs, most of which the pet’s immune system has no resistance against. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to completely circumvent this danger, especially with animals like dogs, which tend to have a very curious nature. The best a watchful owner can do is make certain that the drinking water and food being supplied is fortified with vitamins and minerals. Many brands of pet food offer ‘Immunity’ lines, which offer food especially designed to enhance the pet’s immune system. This does not mean that it is permissible for a pet owner to neglect their pet’s health; animals should still be kept under a watchful eye, especially when in outdoor areas, and animal feces should be cleaned quickly from the RV, or other areas where the pet might stay. It is also important that owners know where the nearest vet is in the event of a pet emergency.
      2. Aggressive Behavior
        A close second in way of dangers is other animals. While any animal can be targeted by aggression from strays, predators, or prey, dogs and cats that have not been neutered are most susceptible to the dangers of other animals of the same species, as they tend to attract members of the opposite gender. This can lead to complications such as pregnancy in female animals, or fights for dominance in the case of male animals. In order to circumvent this, it is highly advisable that road-ready pet owners make a point of spaying or neutering their pets. If this is not a viable action, use excessive restraint and caution when in areas that other animals frequent. With all pets, neutered or natural, it is advisable to keep them on leashes, and keep a close eye on all suspicious activities within the surrounding area. An alert owner is often the best preventative measure against harm to their pet.
      3. Dehydration
        Finally, the third most prevalent danger on the road is dehydration. While the air conditioning may make an RV comfortable while people are in it, many turn off the engine to save gas and battery life while inside stores, or stopped for the night. At times, this can create an extremely hot and dry atmosphere, causing havoc on a pet’s body. Any time a pet must be left alone in an RV, it is important to make sure that they have plenty of water available. To this end, non-spill designed bottles are often recommended.

The above list is not necessarily in numerical order. There are many more things to be concerned with, I just thought to point out what I believe to be the top three while camping.  Please keep your furry family member safe at all times. So be sure to keep your pets healthy and happy, and it is sure to make your life on the road a lot better as well.  If you are looking for a new travel trailer or fifth wheel dealer that is pet friendly, be sure to check out Pennsylvania’s largest travel trailer dealer, Lerch RV.

Safe travels and Happy RVing!

Let us help you find the cheapest gas in town in one click…

Gas Buddy.com logoWhile gas prices are starting to slip from the nearly $4.00 national average, they are still quite high, and no one knows this more than an RVer.  Whether you are towing your camper or driving your car, when you are filling up at the gas station and those numbers keep on spinning by, you wonder if there was cheaper gas just around the corner.  Well, you can take that guess-work away with the help of a very useful website.

Gasbuddy.com is a great resource for any driver, but it will come especially useful to RVers who are driving through new areas without the knowledge of knowing where the cheapest gas in town usually is.  It works like Google Maps or Mapquest, all you have to do is enter the ZIP code into the box and it will bring up the gas prices in the area. There is an iPhone app also.

The only snag will be that it posts the prices from the last 48 hours, so there may be a small dip or rise in price, but it is great at giving you a general idea of which stations offer the best prices.  Next time you are in a new town while going across the country, this website will become an invaluable tool to help save you a little green during the busy travel season. You can even try using it  in your home town, it is very accurate as well.

So do not worry about not always getting the best fuel price,   just remember to keep making those family memories by enjoying the RVing lifestyle. Keep camping and do not let the summer pass you by.  And while you are out and about, feel free to stop by Pennsylvania’s largest tow-able travel trailer dealership, Lerch RV.
