RV Trip

Recreational vehicles continue to attract new users annually, offering a whole new world of comfort when it comes to camping. Whether it’s early retirement or a family getaway, recreation vehicles – motorcycle, snowmobile, quad (ATV), and boat/personal watercraft all the way up to your holiday trailer, camper or motorhome – can be a lot of fun.

When it comes to recreational vehicles (RVs) Drayden Insurance Ltd has you covered, no matter the size of your holiday trailer, camper, or motorhome and we offer stand-alone policies for most recreation vehicles. Also ask us if you qualify for a multi-product discount when you add a recreational vehicle to your current auto and/or home policy.

Being insured means being prepared. The best holidays are well planned for so the focus is on the fun – not whether you packed something and where. An RV camping checklist can help you keep all your gear straight – using any number of checklists available online or you can create your own checklist with the bits and pieces that meet your specific needs.

Create an initial inventory checklist before your first RV trip focusing on essentials, like maintenance items and tools – just in case, including: flashlights, batteries, fire extinguisher, tool kit, road flares, trash and recycling bags, and more random items like a tarp, extension cord, duct tape, gloves, scissors, ropes, shovel, water hose, and leveling blocks – basically covering every situation you could imagine. Then you need to think about the quality of the trip:

Eating is key to a good time and advanced prep always helps; just be sure you have all the supplies you need when it’s time for the meals to come together – cups and mugs, plates and bowls, utensils, pot and pan, cleaning supplies, bottle and can opener, condiments (salt and pepper), cooking oil, and napkins and paper towels.

Sleeping essentials to always wake up feeling refreshed when camping includes sheets for all the beds, pillows and pillow cases, and extra blankets and/or sleeping bags for cooler evenings.

Bathing with an actual bathroom while camping outdoors means saying goodbye to bathing in cold lakes and streams, just remember to pack your toiletry kit, soap, shampoo and conditioner, toothbrush and toothpaste, towels, and toilet paper.

Relaxing is camping, here are a few items to help enhance your down time – lounge chairs, lawn games, books, cards and cross-word puzzles, pens and paper, lanterns, and fire wood.

Playing outside is part of the reason for RVing in the first place, and it’s easy to bring along bigger toys like bikes, canoes, and kayaks but start with the necessities: sunscreen, sunglasses, hat or visor, insect repellant, first aid kit, snacks, water bottles, comfortable shoes, and gear for your preferred outdoor activity.
