Of course, every RV Resort / Campground has its own rules & regulations that they expect their guests to follow, but in reality there’s also a general rule of thumb when it comes to RVing all together. To make sure your etiquette is on point, here a few tips to keep in mind.
- Don’t walk through someones campsite
- Be courteous of your noise level. Although you might be inside your own RV, there’s more than likely someone fairly close by.
- Make sure to keep your pets within a reasonable distance from yourself. Not everyone likes pets and some kids might be afraid of them.
- Help one another out. If you see something wrong with someone’s RV or their hookups, let them know. Pay it forward =)
In Small Groups
- It’s always fun to travel with friends, but make sure you’re not disrupting any other campers experience.
- If traveling all at once on the road, be sure to stay in close contact. If someone needs to stop, don’t have them catch up. Everyone should stop and make sure the travel doesn’t begin again until all parties are ready.
- Plan for the small things that make a huge difference (i.e. rest stop destinations, routes, lead driver, speed limit, etc)
- Don’t make plans for the whole group. I know it’s fun to surprise one another with fun activities, but not everyone wants to do the same thing at the same time, so be careful if planning something like this.
When doing the Laundry
- Don’t start your laundry, but then leave. No one is going to take care of your belongings for you unless you’ve arranged that for yourself.
- Don’t wash pet beds, blankets, etc. In most washers it will leave a filthy residue that will get on the following persons belongings.
- Wipe up after yourself when done and make sure items are placed back as you found them.
- If it’s something you wouldn’t wash in your own home, don’t wash it in the campground washing machines.
