Tips For Full Time RV Living With A Family

An RV can be a small space to keep a family, but that
doesn’t mean it has to feel small.
While there may be some trade-offs that come with limiting your living space,
there are plenty of ways to spruce up an RV and maximize your family’s comfort.
Here are a few tips to help you get the most out of full-time RV living with family.

Keep A Running

This might not sound like the most entertaining way to spend
time in an RV, but it can be vital to your enjoyment. You don’t have to sit
down and write daily diary entries, but a running journal of ideas for RV
living will only benefit you in the long run.

Why is this helpful? Because there are certain insights
you’ll only develop once you live in an RV. For example, a vent cover isn’t top
on the “checklist” when you move into an RV, but it’s something you’ll need on
a hot and rainy day. Keep these little notes handy so you can continue to
improve the experience.

Inspect Your Water

They say that home is where the heart is. We respectfully
disagree. Home is where a comfortable bathroom and source of water is. Few
things in your RV are as essential as its water system, so make sure to inspect
it, test it, and fully understand it before you begin your vacation or extended

Having a family use the RV can put a special strain on the
water systems. The better you maintain them, the more likely you are to have a
pleasant experience living together.

Use Storage To Your

You don’t have a lot of storage space in an RV. To maximize
your space for comfort and living, you’ll have to get wise about how you store
your goods. Here are a few tips:

  • Store
    Stackable boxes, magnets, bulletin boards—however you can make
    vertical storage work safely, use it to the best of your ability. It will keep
    the mess off of vital surface areas and seating.
  • Employ
    boxes and bins liberally.
    When something is out on its own, it’s a mess.
    When something is in a box or a bin, it’s organized. In a moving RV, you want
    less “stuff” out and about, where it can move while driving or take up more
    space than it’s worth.

Invest In Efficiency

Running an RV means refueling and navigating. It’s worth it
to invest in your RV’s long-term health—not to mention your own ability to save
money. Download an app like “GasBuddy” to find the best gas prices in your
area. It may only save you a few cents per gallon, but making a habit of this
can add up to big savings in the long run.

Be Ready For Repairs

What if your RV springs a leak? You can’t suddenly move out.
Keep the RV sealants you
need on hand, making sure to match the sealant with its appropriate materials
on your RV. This will give you more flexibility for handling challenges with
your RV. It won’t hurt to keep an “RV repair kit” handy in your storage. Even
if you never have to use it, you’ll find peace of mind in knowing that it’s
