Your RV travel to-do list

Your RV travel to-do list

Is the old-fashioned Canadian road trip on your summer agenda? If it's by way of RV, use this checklist to plan a smooth ride.

Get insured

A blend of homeowners and auto insurance is typically used to cover the vehicle’s multiple uses. Talk to your Desjardins Agent for more information.

Plan ahead

Flexibility is a perk of RV travel, but a rough agenda with the best places on route to eat, explore and stay will help alleviate some of the guessing.

From rustic to Wi-Fi enabled, camping options run the gamut. Find the lot size and water, power and sewer hookups you need at GoRVing.ca and GoodSamCamping.com.

Load up

Outfit your RV with the comforts of home. Some necessities include:

  • Dishes, cookware and kitchen tools
  • Non-perishable food items
  • Cleaning supplies
  • First-aid kit
  • Tool kit
  • Batteries
  • Flashlights
  • RV toilet paper
  • Linens

Maintain, maintain, maintain

Regular maintenance can keep your RV operating safely and reduce the risk of a breakdown.

Before every trip

You should:

  • Check tire pressure
  • Check brakes
  • Check battery fluid levels
  • Wash and inspect the exterior

And according to the manufacturer’s suggested timeline:

  • Clean air conditioner filters
  • Drain air from air brake tanks
