Many campgrounds have "Camp Hosts". A CH generally parks near the entrance (but not always). Ask if there is a CH where you'll be. Stop by their site and say hello. Let the CH know this is your first time (or that you're new to RVing). Ask if they have any tips for you. Many CHs will go the "extra mile" because they'd like to see that a newbie has a good camping experience and, generally gets off to a good start. The CH is also likely to be knowledgeable about the area in general (ie:what not to miss etc). Although RVing ain't rocket science, there are some perils and pitfalls. I would STRONGLY
recommend that you find and attend an RV Boot Camp. The Escapees RV Club offer an excellent
Boot Camp (and, will be holding one this July 21~23 in Essex Junction, VT before their big rally; other groups also offer Boot Camps). Mistakes made with RVs are often expensive and, sometimes dangerous. After completing RV Boot Camp, you WILL
be a safer and smarter RVer.
If you're new to driving / towing an RV, get some practice (especially backing) before
you hit the road. Early weekend mornings in a large, empty parking lot usually works well. When backing, SLOW
is the key. That way, you'll be able to stop and make corrections before any major problems occur.
Welcome and, Happy RVing!
