In times when planes, buses, and trains are still very much unsafe, travelling with an RV is pretty much the perfect solution. Not only will you be able to enjoy comfort and spaciousness that’s simply not that in other means of transports, you’ll also be able to stay completely safe from covid-19 if you take the appropriate measures. 

If you own or plan to rent an RV and you’re eager to get away for a bit and rest your mind, then we can help! Here’s what you need to pay attention to in order to keep yourself safe and enjoy your vacation fully. 


Consider your destination

Now might not be the right time to plan a long trip. If possible, choose a more local destination that’s just outside of your town so you’re close enough to come back quickly in case of an emergency, but still far enough from all the noise. 

Longer trips are tricky to pull off during a pandemic travel restrictions are in effect all over the world, and the further away you go, the more careful you’ll have to be. This doesn’t have to be a bad thing either – people rarely think to explore what’s right there in their neighborhood, so you might be surprised to discover all sorts of fun things to do.

Travel with people from your household

Until we all get vaccine shots, traveling with anyone other than the people we already live with is unsafe. While it might be perfectly alright to meet a friend for a socially distant coffee while you both wear protective masks, you’re going to have a much harder time keeping that distance at all times during travel. 


Make reservations and plan your route carefully

As soon as travel restrictions loosen even a little bit, people rush to hotels and campsites. The place that was empty one week could quickly fill up with travelers the next, so it’s best to make a reservation to wherever you’re going just to be safe. 

You also want to plan out your route – make it so that there are as few stops along the way as possible. This way you’ll reduce your risk of accidental transmissions. 


Get an RV with all the necessary amenities

Your RV should be your safe space, so you want to make sure you’re as comfortable as possible. If you’re renting out a vehicle you should pick the one that has its own bathroom with a shower. If you’re using your own, consider investing in gadgets and appliances that will make the trip fun and easy. 

For example, good stereo speakers or TV will ensure you have plenty of entertainment, while a decent coffee maker will mean you won’t have to rely on gas station swill to get your daily dose of caffeine. Of course, a good RV air conditioner is also important if you want to adjust the temperature in the place until you’re completely comfortable with it.

Keep following CDC guidelines

If you go out of the RV, then wear a mask and stay six feet away from everyone. The CDC guidelines are simple, and you shouldn’t have any issues following them even on the road. Other measures such as frequent hand washing should also be obeyed. 

One note about the mask – make sure you wear it so it cover both your mouth and your nose. Not wearing your protective gear correctly defeats the point of even having it in the first place. 


Don’t let strangers into your RV

You might meet new friends on your trip and you’re free to chat and exchange contact information, but be wary of letting them visit your RV. The virus has the ability to stick to surfaces and stay alive for hours, so letting unfamiliar people inside means unnecessarily risking your health. 


Disinfect the entire vehicle

This is especially important if you’re renting out an RV. Frequent disinfection and cleaning will reduce your chances of getting sick and developing a serious form of the disease, so bring a bottle of disinfectant with you. 


Travel is important for our mental health. While the situation with the pandemic still hasn’t been resolved, going out of town for a while might be just what you need to rest and unwind. Just follow our safety tips and you should have no trouble enjoying your vacation!
