4 tips to help you get started with RV camping.

Is your family new to RV camping? Here are a few tips provided by KOA that will help you get started.

1. Make your first trip close to home so you can work out any kinks in your RV before getting too far away.  

2. Stay at a trusted campground with seasoned staff and a store stocked with RV supplies. That way, you have help with any unexpected problems—and easy access to anything you may have accidentally left at home!

3. Attend a class on RV maintenance and trouble shooting problems to ensure your camping trip is as smooth as possible.

4. Keep the small space of an RV neatly organized. If it doesn’t fit in your small duffle bag, it doesn’t go on the trip! Find lots of good ideas on this packing list.

San Diego Metro KOA is an award-winning campground located in Chula Vista, CA.
