        5 RVing Tips For People With Disabilities

        5 RVing Tips For People With Disabilities

        RVing is a popular pastime for many Americans, offering the freedom and flexibility to explore new places while enjoying the comforts of home. RVing allows you to travel comfortably, independently and at your own pace, while still having all the amenities of home. For those reasons, it has become an appealing way to travel for people with disabilities. In this blog post, we'll explore some tips and considerations for RVing for people with disabilities.

        1. Choose the Right RV 

          There are many types of RVs available on the market, but not all of them are suitable for people with disabilities. When selecting an RV, it's important to consider your specific needs and limitations. Look for features like wheelchair lifts, accessible toilets, grab bars, and wider doorways to make your RV as accessible as possible. Some RVs also come equipped with adjustable beds and showers, as well as other accessibility features. Class A motorhomes are often the best option for wheelchair users because they offer more space and better maneuverability. 


          2. Plan Ahead

            Before hitting the road, do some research to ensure that the campsites, rest stops, and attractions you plan to visit are accessible. Look for sites with paved paths and level ground, as well as accessible bathrooms and showers. Many campgrounds also offer accessible picnic tables and fire pits, as well as other amenities like swimming pools and playgrounds.


            3. Pack Wisely

              When packing for your trip, be sure to bring essential equipment and supplies with you, as well as any mobility aids like wheelchairs, walkers, or canes. You may also want to bring a portable ramp to make it easier to get in and out of your RV or navigate uneven terrain. Lynx Levelers and Stop ‘N Chocks will be especially important to have in this case, as they’ll level and secure your RV, enabling you to use your ramp safely.

              4. Stay Connected

                While RVing can offer a sense of freedom and independence, it's important to stay connected with your support system in case of an emergency. Along with the usual emergency must-haves (like a first aid kit and fire extinguisher), also consider investing in a personal emergency response system (PERS) that can alert emergency services if you need help.



                5. Join a Community

                  RVing can be a social activity, and joining a community of other RVers with disabilities can offer a sense of support and camaraderie. Look for groups like the National RV Association or RVing Accessibility Group, which offer resources and support for disabled RVers. Additionally, you can also join various groups on Facebook specifically dedicated to RVing with disabilities.

                  In conclusion, RVing can be a great way to explore the world, even if you have a disability. RVing with disabilities can present its own unique set of challenges, but with the right planning and resources, it can also be an incredibly rewarding and empowering way to travel. Whether you're a seasoned RV veteran or a first-time traveler, don't let your disability hold you back from experiencing all the beauty and wonder that the open road has to offer.

                  A Guide To Celebrating Halloween in Your RV

                  A Guide To Celebrating Halloween in Your RV




                  Halloween is just around the corner, and many of you may be spending it on the road. If you are, it doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate the spooky holiday like everyone else. If anything, being on the road means you can spend Halloween anywhere… like on a haunted campground (but more on that later). In this blog, we’ll share some tips that will help you get into the Halloween spirit, even if you are on the road!



                  1. Halloween Treats

                  Is it really spooky season if you don’t indulge in some halloween-themed treats?! 

                  It’s no question that fun treats are the perfect way to celebrate Halloween, however, baking supplies are limited on the road so it can be difficult to follow most recipes. But do not fret! In this blog, written by Chelsea’s Messy Apron, she shared some spooky-licious halloween treats that only need 3 ingredients! These recipes are simple and quick, making them perfect for when you’re RVing. 



                  2. Decorate, duh!

                  It goes without saying that one of the best ways to get into the Halloween spirit is by decorating. You can keep it simple by just adding a few fall decorations, or go all out and transform your motorhome into a full-on haunted house (or should we say haunted RV?). Below, we’ve shared some pictures of how some fellow RVers have decorated their motorhomes for the spooky holiday in the past:

                  3.  Pick Your Location Strategically

                  There are numerous spooky (and possibly haunted) campgrounds across the United States and Canada that would make the perfect Halloween location. Last year, we dedicated an entire blog on six of the most haunted campgrounds in North America; check out our list and see if any of them intrigue you!

                  4. Make It A Party!

                  Now that your decorations are up and treats are made, the only appropriate next step is to invite your campground neighbours and have a halloween bash! Here are some fun things you can do all together:

                  • Set up a projector and watch a Halloween movie
                  • Tell scary stories around the campfire
                  • Play some games
                  • Carve pumpkins

                    Spending Halloween on the road is something that all RVers should experience at least once in their lives. If you'll be celebrating Halloween in your RV this year, please share your spooky pictures and tag us!
