RV 101® - RV Campground Basics E-Book Training Course
This is an RV 101 online e-book training course that can be viewed from computers, tablets, and smartphones. When you enroll in our training course you have the option to simply download the e-book and read it at your leisure, and/or you can participate in the actual course. I wanted to add more than just an e-book, so the course material includes the written text, short video segments, related articles written by your instructor Mark Polk, helpful tips & tricks, fun RV University play & learn crossword puzzles and quizzes to help you retain the information.
I have always said, if you are going to buy an RV you need to use it, otherwise it is nothing more than a large and expensive lawn ornament. But where to go and what to do when you get there can be confusing until you have a few RV trips under your belt. There is a lot to learn about campgrounds and RV Parks, and the more you know, the better your camping experience will be.
Another thing that’s confusing is all of the different camping clubs available to the new RVer. Joining the wrong club can be a bad experience and an expensive mistake. You need to determine how you plan to use your RV, explore all of your options and join a club or clubs that are just right for you.
So, how do you find these campgrounds, parks and resorts? Should you make reservations before leaving on a trip? How do you register when you arrive? What kind of site should you request? Do you need a partial hook-up or a full hook-up? What does campground etiquette mean? How do you determine the right camping club for you? That is the purpose of this e-book course, to answer all of these questions and much more.
Whether you enjoy camping at out of the way places that offer little in the way of amenities, or you enjoy plush RV resorts that offer hot tubs and private golf lessons there are campgrounds, RV parks and RV resorts that will meet your needs. And the nice thing is these campgrounds, RV parks and RV resorts are located everywhere imaginable. You can find them in small towns, major cities, along the interstate, near the beach, in the mountains and in the middle of nowhere. So read on and discover how to get the most enjoyment out of camping in your RV.
