Hoping on an RV and driving into adventure is a wonderful experience everyone should get a chance to live. Packing light for your RV trip will make everything more comfortable.

On Your Next RV Trip, Leave These 5 Things Back Home

Sure. When you decide to go on an adventure hoping in an RV, that vehicle will become your home for a while. However, you must think objectively and realize that even if you need to make it homey, it can’t really mirror the comfort of your real home, the one that’s not on wheels. Don’t give into the hoarding habit that most RVers have. Travel comfortably and safely with everything you need and leave these extras behind:

Your Entire Closet

Yes, you’ll need some changes of clothes, but the idea is to pack the essentials, not bring every piece of clothing you own. While guys —or most guys— don’t feel the need to overpack, women are more likely to do so hoping to have options for every possible occasion. Consider your destinations and pack accordingly. It will save you some headaches along the way.

Luxury Kitchen Appliances

The idea of packing your waffle iron, the crockpot, and the espresso machine might be too over-the-top for an RV trip. Essentially, being on the road is about enjoying the simple side of life. Bringing those items along will not only saturate your kitchenette, but it will also complicate things as they will require extra cleaning and care.

Unnecessary Electronics

You don’t have to unplug during your trip entirely. You definitely want to keep your cell phone handy in case of an emergency, but do allow yourself to take time off those items that take up most of your attention. This will give you an excellent opportunity to spend quality time with your family or friends.

The Big Box of Tools

It’s good to keep some tools at hand while you’re traveling, but you won’t need everything in your toolbox. Pack a basic toolkit for emergencies. Make sure you put an army knife and duck tape in there but leave the rest at home.


Stress has no business tagging along with you on your trip. The idea is to relax, so the minute you walk out the door and get in the RV, say goodbye to all the negativity and worries you might be carrying. It’s time to experience the great outdoors and take care of yourself.
