As the weather begins to cool, it’s a great time to head to East Texas RV parks for a little adventure. If this is your first time RVing, or even if you’re a seasoned veteran, here are three tips to help you keep your trip pleasant.

1. Tune Up Before Heading to Your East Texas RV Park

It’s always a good idea to check your vehicle before a trip. Is it time for an oil change? How are the fluid levels? Do the tires need air, or do your windshield wipers need to be replaced? Taking care of these important details will help ensure your vehicle doesn’t let you down in the middle of a much needed vacation.

And if you haven’t used your RV in a while, you may want to do a deep cleaning to get rid of the dust and cobwebs that come from disuse. For more information on that, check out this article from GoRVing.

Of course, this is mainly for those of you who own your own vehicle, but it’s still good to look over your rental before driving it off the lot.

2. Everyone’s Gotta Eat

Snacks are essential for any road trip. Make sure you have something easy to munch on, and provide a variety to please every mood. Need ideas? Pinterest is full of travel snack ideas. You’re bound to find something appealing.

Whether you’re planning a long trip or a short one, if you plan on cooking, you’ll want to create a meal plan. This allows you to utilize your small space to the best of its ability, as well as ensuring you have everything you need for the meals you want to prepare. For more ideas on what food to bring, check out this blog from My Dirt, and for the super organized, here’s a printable planner spreadsheet from RV Checklist.

3. Keep Your East Texas RV Park Site and Interior Tidy

With such a small space, clutter can easily take over and damper the relaxation you’re seeking. Finding ways to keep tidy—like having bins for your shoes, baskets to fit in every nook and cranny, and vertical storage for odds and ends—will keep things from getting out of hand.
