There’s a learning curve to RVing, as in most things. For full-time RVers the learning curve can be steep. Your rig is your primary dwelling. Once damaged you’re out a home and a vehicle until it’s fixed or replaced.
Because of this, we tend to publish cautionary tales – things we notice that could save you money and heartache. Please don’t confuse this with being critical or poking fun. Rest assured, we’ve made our fair share of mistakes along the way that probably left others shaking their heads too.
There seems to be a sense of security among RVers: A belief that ALL of our fellow RVing neighbors are friendly and pose no threat to our person or property. Yes, in an perfect world that would be so, but in this imperfect world that’s not always the case.
How many times have you read on the RV and Camping forums or on social media pages about something stolen or someone’s rig being vandalized? I’m not saying that all of these cases involved a fellow RVer, but there a some who do.
A term you as an RVer need to be familiar with is GO Bag! What is a GO Bag!? It’s a bag, suitcase, briefcase or container that contains your most important documents and valuables. In case of an emergency such as a FIRE in your RV, or having to evacuate your RV due to dangerous weather, a GO bag is meant to be grabbed easily and quickly as you exit the rig.
