Packing for an RV Trip for Seniors
In packing for an RV trip for seniors, it is very important not to pack so many unnecessary things and just bring those things that are needed. For seniors, there are some things and materials that will be necessary to be packed for an RV trip that would not be needed or would be unnecessary for RV trips of younger age groups. Packing and bring only those needed things can help in saving space inside your RV and it can also help in decreasing weight load of your RV, which can help in saving gasoline consumption.
Kitchen and Dining Supplies
This is one of the most important things that need to be packed and brought for an RV trip. It will be better if you choose to bring lightweight cooking utensils and eating utensils during the trip. Here are a list of the most necessary kitchen and dining supplies for an RV trip:
- Frying pan
- Backing pan
- Spoon, fork, and knife
Aside from utensils, you will also have to bring staple foods during your RV trip, such as:
- Dry mixes
- Dried fruits
- Canned goods
- Spices and condiments
Personal Items for an RV Trip
You will never know the exact weather for the whole duration of your trip. So packing clothes that can be appropriate for both cold and warm weathers is necessary. You can bring shirts, shorts, jeans, light sweaters, and jackets that can be folded and/or hanged easily. Aside from clothes, never forget to bring different kinds of shoes that will be perfect to be used in all activities that you’ve planned. Do not also forget to bring toiletries (shampoos, soaps, toothbrush, toothpaste, sunscreen, etc.). Just make sure that all your personal items are kept to a minimum.
Recreational Items for an RV Trip
For seniors, there are a lot of different recreational items that can be brought during an RV trip. Here are some recreational items that can be brought to help in keeping seniors entertained during the entire duration of the trip:
- Board games
- Portable Television
- Art Materials, such as for painting, sewing, etc.
Medications for an RV Trip
Maintenance medications, such as for hypertension, diabetes, and other medical disorders should not be forgotten. Aside from bringing the medications, seniors should also make sure that they will bring along with them their prescriptions for their medications just in case they have to buy the medication during their trip. Bringing a sphygmomanometer apparatus (BP apparatus) can also be beneficial during an RV trip for seniors.
