Thinking about a motorhome holiday? A motorhome holiday offers a completely different vacation experience from a hotel/city break and can give you the thrill of the open road, the ability to spend time in nature and complete control over your trip. You can also tick off multiple places on one trip and enjoy the comforts of home on an adventure experience.
There are many great destinations for a motorhome holiday, but few are greater than America. The US is an incredibly beautiful and diverse part of the world with all kinds of incredible landscapes to explore including thick forests, prairie lands, desert, mountain ranges and beautiful coastlines.
Of course, there are also incredible towns, cities and communities to explore in every corner as well and this makes it the perfect place for a road trip adventure.
Essentials Before You Go
Before you set off on your great American adventure, you need to make sure that you are well-prepared. You will be spending a lot of time on the road, so you need to learn about the American Highway Code and be aware that there are a few differences to back home (beyond driving on the right).
In addition to this, you should also make sure that you are not bringing any contraband into the country as certain foods and medicines are banned. Finally, you also want to get all of your documentation together including your passport, driving license and motorhome insurance documents that you will need.
What to Pack
It can be hard to know what to pack, especially when travelling through a diverse place like the US. It will depend largely on where you are going but keep in mind that it can get cold in the evenings no matter where you are and you will want to prioritise comfort for when you are in the motorhome.
You will be able to pick up food and supplies on the road, but you may want to bring kitchen equipment with you. In addition to this, think about what activities you want to enjoy when you are not driving as you may need to bring equipment like hiking gear with you.
Plan Your Route
The US is famous for road trips, which means that there are many good routes to choose from. Of course, Route 66 is iconic and the inspiration for countless songs, films and shows, but there are other options worth checking out as well.
Hopefully, this post will help you to prepare for a road trip in America in a motorhome. Motorhome holidays can be incredible adventures with the comfort of home and America is the perfect destination as it’s such a beautiful, large and diverse country with so much to offer visitors beyond the major cities.
