Free Family Camping Tips
by Bob Carter
Even if you're going camping with your family, not a Scout troop, you'll find plenty of information in a free guide to family camping in RVs. The article was recently published in Scouting magazine, a publication of the Boy Scouts of America
The handy resource is ideal for parents and grandparents seeking the adventure, togetherness, and convenience that make RV camping with children special. It includes fun tips and use facts such as:
1. A list of information sources on the 16,000 RV parks and campgrounds across the country, including national parks and forests.
2. Tips on how to get started by first renting an RV and how much it will cost.
3. A description of the five types of RVs by price range and size, with illustrations of each.
4. Tips on how to take full advantage of an RV's onboard refrigerator, range, microwave, and pantry by preparing meals for a healthier, thriftier trip. An RV cooking expert offers one of her favorite recipes. In addition, take a look at my Camper's Cookbook. In it, you'll find campground recipes and cooking tips.
5. Information on the latest advances in RV technology including slideouts, satellite antennas, computer ports, and more.
6. A toll-free number, 888-GO-RVing, for a free 15-minute video answering some of the most commonly asked questions about RV camping, accompanied by a list of local RV dealers and campgrounds.
