Everyone can help plan for the RV vacation with kids!
Plan Shorter Days
Don’t overschedule the RVing summer vacation trip. You’ll want to consider how long your kids can last on average in between stops. You’ll need to make the shorter days happen for younger children, while older children may be able to handle the longer trips and such.
Set an itinerary and timeframe for each of the days of driving in the RV with family.
Take Potty Breaks
Do not underestimate the power of potty breaks! While your RV is probably equipped with a bathroom, it’s so much fun using the various restrooms along the route at rest areas and welcome centers. Be sure to take some potty breaks at rest stops and welcome centers along the route so that you all can use the restrooms while stretching your legs.
This is the perfect way to stop to let the dog go pee if you have the dog with you and stretch your legs so you’re not sitting for extended periods.
Create a Quiet Space
Last but not least, you’ll need to create a quiet space. This space is going to be an area where anyone in the family can go to be alone during the chaos that arrives with RV traveling with kids. This space can have a curtain that one can shut while they’re enjoying their quiet time.
A quiet time space is perfect for adults and kids who feel overwhelmed and just need a little alone time during your travels.
There you have it, everything you need to know about RVing with kids so that you can enjoy this adventure of a lifetime with the kids and your significant other during the summer break season.
