Overloading a car is uncommon. The space in your passenger vehicle will naturally limit you from overloading your vehicle – unless you are the Beverly Hillbillies. But simply because your RV has seemingly limitless space does not mean it has limitless capacity. You want to be safe and make the most of your RV space. Let’s take a look at RV load, limits and how to avoid dangerous situations from an overloaded RV.

When most people think of camping, they picture hot summer weather, shorts, flip-flops…and lots of other campers. One way to beat the crowds is to camp in the off season. RVing in winter can be a great way to experience your favorite parks without the crowds. It may be a chance to visit a park or campground that is so popular in the summer that you haven’t been able to get a reservation.

Maybe you enjoy ice fishing, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, or are looking for a new adventure. Maybe you just love winter. No matter your motivation, with the proper planning you can hit the road and experience winter up close and personal and experience nature in the “off” season.

An important part of preparing for your road trip is planning your route and gas budget. With gas prices fluctuating as much as 40 cents a gallon, don’t let bad fuel economy ruin your trip. There are a number of things you can do to improve rv gas mileage while towing or driving. Pad your budget, or build in an emergency or slush fund so that an unexpected cost doesn’t sour your vacation. Estimate your gas mileage, then over estimate it to give yourself a cushion.
