What Kind of Hookup Does My RV Need?

Knowing what kind of hookup your RV needs is something every RVer needs to remember. You can easily find out if your RV requires a 30 amp hookup or a 50 amp hookup by contacting your dealer or doing a simple google search of your make and model. In general, most smaller RVs like travel trailers, expandables, and pop-ups will only need a 30 amp hookup, while large RVs like motorhomes and fifth wheel will need a 50 amp. Additionally, you’ll want to consider whether you’ll need electricity, water, and sewage hookups for your stay. 

What Amenities Do I Want to Be Near?

Next, you’ll want to look at the amenities available at your chosen campground and decide which features you want to be near. If you have kids, you’ll probably want to request a site near the pool or playground, while if you’re planning a couple’s retreat, you’ll want something with a view.

Should I Request a Pull Thru or Back In Site?

Parking your RV can be one of the most stressful things about your camping trip, so you’ll want to consider ahead of time whether you need a pull-thru or a back-in site.  Most campgrounds have options for both, but some have very limited options for pull-thru sites.  If you have a big rig in tow, like this Heartland Torque TQ 378 toy hauler fifth wheel, you’ll probably want to get a pull-thru site with plenty of space for all your gear.

What Landscaping/Scenery Would I Like?

Another option you should consider is whether you want a shaded or sunny site. If your campground offers water-front sites, think about asking which locations are available. Additionally, if you prefer a more secluded site, ask about the more removed places from other campers.
