Did you know the longest highway in the U.S, Route 20, stretches over 3,365 miles? Those miles are calling to the wanderer within us.

So, we’ve compiled the ultimate cross country road trip prep list for you. Brace yourself. It’s time to turn that dream into reality.

Strap yourself in and let’s prepare for a road trip together!

Detailing and Maintenance

Our journey begins with the foundation – our steadfast RV. We may forget its needs amidst our own excitement. Before you imagine yourself on the open road, imagine your RV in pristine condition, both aesthetically and mechanically.

Investing time in RV detailing, not only makes our vehicle shine but also ensures a more comfortable journey. It’s a little pampering that our home-on-wheels deserves before a lengthy excursion.

But, let’s not stop at appearances. Regular RV maintenance is crucial. Be it the brakes, the tires, the fluids, every component needs our attention. Remember, it’s the smooth functioning of these parts that promise a smooth journey.

Gathering the Essentials

With our trusty RV prepped and ready, we turn our attention to what we’re bringing along. Packing for a road trip is akin to preparing a delicate dish – you don’t want to miss any key ingredients.

Essential Gear

Safety first, as they say. Your gear must include essentials like a robust first-aid kit and a flashlight. Throw in a toolbox as well – you never know when you’ll need to tighten a loose screw or fix a pesky leak.

Provisioning Food and Water

The road stretches on, and so does our appetite. A stockpile of non-perishable food items and plenty of bottled water is what we need. Keep some separate as an emergency stash, for those unplanned detours and midnight cravings.

Apparel and Comfort

Clothes aren’t just about fashion on a road trip; they’re about utility. Pack layers to combat unpredictable weather, and throw in a couple of extras for good measure. And don’t forget comfortable bedding. After a long day on the road, we deserve a good night’s sleep.

The Fun Stuff

All work and no play, you know how it goes. Books, music, games – whatever tickles our fancy. These are our secret weapons against the occasional monotony of the endless road.

Ensuring Vehicle Readiness

Beyond detailing and maintenance, there’s a need for some practical know-how. Spare tires are indispensable, and knowing how to change one? That’s paramount.

It’s not just about ensuring a smooth ride, but also being able to get back on track when the road throws a curveball.
