We love spring camping because spring means that it is finally time to get the RV out and get ready to travel the country in style. Many people are just itching to get out and travel, especially this spring and summer because we have all been cooped up for months. If this is your first time camping in the spring weather, we have some tips and tricks for you.
Your first step is to watch the weather, especially if you are traveling to a place that is unfamiliar. Spring can bring two things you might not have anticipated. First, spring means snowfall. There are some places in the United States where snow is not unexpected in May or June. Some places in the Northern and Northwestern US can have snow in July. Second, spring in the Plains and the South means storms and possible tornadoes. Check the forecast before you head out. Also, make sure you have waterproofing materials or outdoor rugs. When the spring showers fall, you don’t want to track mud into your nice, clean RV.
You may know that you need bug spray in the summer, but you also need it in the spring. Bugs are out and about in many areas of the United States, and no one wants to get bitten or stung. It’s also never too early to check for ticks, especially in areas of the East that are endemic to Lyme disease. There are some sunscreen and bug spray products made especially for kids, so if you have children, be sure and pack those essentials as well.
