RV Checklist: What to Pack for an RV Trip

RV checklist

An RV trip is a family event you look forward to. It is sure to bring opportunities for fun and adventures and take you away from the stress of work. It allows you to spend quality time with your family members or friends in a safe and pleasurable environment. Failing to plan properly for the needs of the trip can turn a highly awaited retreat into a regrettable disaster. Here’s an RV checklist of the essentials that you need to consider before you start the engine:


You don’t want to spend a great deal of your time cooking when you can spend the time better in outdoor activities. Pack ready-to-eat or simple, easy-to-cook foods enough for the duration of your intended trip. Bring your daily menu list and stock up on all the food ingredients needed to prepare them in your pantry cupboard and insulated cooler.

Kitchen and Dining Utensils

Bring all the things you will need to prepare your meals throughout your trip and the eating utensils your family will use.


Bring enough clothes you can wear on the first week or few days of your stay. You should have something to wear when you wash your used clothes and leave them to dry. Check your weather app to ensure you’re prepared for the unexpected.


Bring a sufficient amount of prescription medicines that you take and over-the-counter medications for common ailment such as headaches, dizziness, stomach issues, etc. Bring two first aid kits – a big kit kept inside the RV and small one to carry along when away outdoors.

Bathroom Supplies

These include necessities such as soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, mouthwash, skin lotion, sunscreen, tissues, shampoo and other bathroom items.


Cell phones, laptops, cameras, chargers, and plugs.

Indoor Entertainment and Recreation

Think of the activities you can do as a family at night before you go to sleep or when the weather is not suited for outdoor activities. You can bring your favorite game such as cards, board games, and downloaded movies and KTV songs.

Once you’ve checked off all the items in your checklist, you’re now ready to experience the RV fun! Choose an RV park that can cater to your needs as local tourists and provide excellent customer service. It will make your RV trip more pleasant and enjoyable.
