Planning an RV Road Trip: Your Route

Most people who have used RVs for traveling love it! However, to make your RV experience a good one you can’t just hop in an RV and hit the road. RVing takes a little effort so here’s what to keep in mind:

  • Make a list of the places you want to visit and plan your route.
  • Plan out your stops and campsites and make reservations if needed
  • Have a navigating backup
    • You can download a map of your trip destination, but it is always important to have a trusty paper map to help if technology fails.
  • Limit daily driving time to six hours max and avoid driving for extended periods multiple days in a row.

Budget for your bills, gas, and travel expenses

Budgeting your trip is a great way to enjoy the adventure without overspending. If you’re the kind of person that likes to or needs to stay on a budget here’s how to do it for your RV camping getaway:

First, think about the necessary spending while planning your RV road trip.

  • Renting an RV (if you don’t own one)
  • Campsite reservations
  • Fuel
  • Food and water

Then, think about the fun and emergency spending.

  • Plan out and budget any activities you’d like to do
    • Hiking (some national parks may ask for an entrance fee)Rafting, horseback riding, and other activities can cost you something too
    • Emergency fund – have at least one-third of your trip expenses ready as your emergency fund in case things don’t go as planned

Road Trip Planning: Prepare your RV

Your RV will become your home away from home, so make sure everything is as it should be.

  • If you’re renting an RV do a proper check-up with the rental agency employee
  • If you own an RV, make sure it is fully operational before you hit the road, Jack.
  • Make sure you have a first aid kit.
  • Pack enough food and water. If you need some help figuring out how much is enough and other details check out our Camping Meals Guide blog post.

Why Organized Campsite?

When planning an RV roadtrip in Greece, choosing an organized campsite is a decision that blends convenience with the rich, cultural tapestry of this beautiful country.

These campsites offer essential amenities like power hook-ups, clean water, and reliable security, ensuring a comfortable and worry-free stay. They often come with added luxuries such as Wi-Fi, laundry facilities, and sometimes even swimming pools and on-site restaurants, elevating your camping experience. Organized campsites also provide a social atmosphere where you can meet fellow travelers, share stories, and gather local insights, making your Greek adventure both memorable and hassle-free.

Why Private Spot in Nature?

A great option to explore Greece with your RV is by staying at a private camper site.

As you already know free camping is unfortunately not allowed in Greece but this concept is the ultimate alternative. If that sounds interesting to you then you’ll be happy to hear that Campsaround is the only platform that provides private RV camping sites.

Most of the RV sites you can find here are completely secluded and peaceful, plus they’re available year-round, and some even offer amenities such as water supply, electric power, or hygiene facilities. You should go for next time you’re road trip planning.
