Uncovering new adventures as an RV traveler
For most travel nurses, the dream of hitting the open road is alluring.
As a travel nurse, you get to bring your home with you wherever you go and have the freedom to design your own schedule. RVing is a great way for travel nurses to explore the world while still working and making a living. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of RVing as a travel nurse and four tips on getting started.
Benefits Of Travel Nursing In An RV
The biggest benefit to traveling in an RV as a travel nurse is having the ability to make your home anywhere you go.
After all, no one likes feeling like they’re living out of their suitcase or sleeping in uncomfortable hotel beds when they are away from home for long periods. With an RV, you can bring your bedding, cook your own meals and even take your pet along with you if need be.
Plus, you have more space for storage than if you were staying in a hotel room or apartment rental.
Another benefit to RVing is that it allows you to save money on housing costs while on assignment. Instead of paying for hotels or apartments every month, your only cost will be fuel and any campsite fees you encounter along the way. If you are comfortable boondocking (or camping without hookups), then those costs can be even lower.
Additionally, RVing gives you access to areas that might not be accessible by car or plane; this means that there are endless opportunities for exploration right outside your door.
Four Tips To Getting Started
1) Research different types of RVs
Before jumping into buying an RV, it’s important to do research into what type would work best for what kind of lifestyle/budget best suits your needs. Are you looking for something lightweight? Or maybe something larger so that everyone can come along?
It’s important to think about these things before committing to an investment like this.
2) Figure Out Your Power Needs
One thing that often gets overlooked when purchasing an RV is figuring out how much power will be needed on board; this includes electrical outlets, lights, heating/cooling systems etc…
Knowing what kind of power needs will help determine what size generator should be purchased (if needed). Additionally, understanding power needs upfront could also save some time down the road if any issues arise during usage.
3) Choose A Destination
Choosing where to take off from and where you want to end up is half the fun!
Do some research ahead of time into campsites and other attractions to plan out the perfect route and make sure there are enough places along the way where rest stops can occur if needed! Also, keep in mind any special permits or licenses necessary when crossing state lines, so there aren’t any surprises later on down the road.
4) Get Familiar With Your Vehicle
Finally, now that everything else has been taken care of, its time to get familiar with your new vehicle.
Take some time learning all its features so there aren’t any surprises later on down the road (pun intended). This includes becoming familiar with safety protocols such as making sure smoke detectors are installed correctly and checking tire pressure regularly; these small details can make all difference between having smooth sailing or not.
The Final Word
Travel nursing offers plenty of exciting opportunities both near and far from home, but none quite like taking off on an adventure across America in an RV.
By following these four tips listed above, anyone interested in becoming a full-time traveler can ensure their journey is nothing short of amazing and full of wonderful memories along the way.
So grab those keys—the open road awaits!
