If you have ever seen a motorhome on the road, you have likely seen one that is pulling a vehicle along behind it. It’s even possible that you joked with the kids or grandkids, “Look at that small car pushing that big motorhome!” Those vehicles in tow are becoming more and more common as the population of retirees continues to rise and with it, the demand for motorhomes and RV toads.

Two of the most difficult tasks involved in RV camping are backing up to hitch your trailer and backing into your campsite. Whether your motivation is making sure your path is free of small children and pets or simply avoiding starting out every camping adventure with the “joy” of miscommunication as you and your co-pilot try to work together to back into your campsite through gritted teeth, an RV backup camera can help keep you and your loved ones safe.

They say there’s no such thing as a free lunch. However, there is such a thing as free RV camping. In fact, President Roosevelt called for the creation of free campgrounds on Federal lands when he addressed Congress in 1901. (Although at that time he wasn’t referring to RVs!)

Now commonly referred to as boondocking, camping free of charge is real, but it isn’t for everyone. Boondocking isn’t officially defined but the term stems from the expression “boondocks” that refers to a remote area. Overnight RV parking places such as truck stops, Wal-Mart parking lots, or campgrounds in which RV hookups aren’t available may not necessarily seem remote, but are all generally lumped into the boondocking category.
