Worried about fuel costs for your new or used RV? Stop worrying! Today’s motorized homes are compact, lighter-weight and aerodynamic, allowing them to maximize fuel economy. The same goes for towable RVs. However, there are many other ways to help you get the most miles per gallon out of your RV, check them out below.
Try to pack only what you will need for your trip. And when it comes to purchasing firewood or topping off your fresh water tanks before heading out, don’t do it! These practices will add a lot of weight to your RV, making it harder to achieve good fuel efficiency. Instead, top off your tanks and buy wood when you arrive at your campground. Also, be sure to empty your holding tanks to help alleviate the weight in your RV.
Of course, the closer you camp to home, the less you’ll have to spend on fuel. The U.S. offers more than 16,000 campgrounds to choose from, so you should have no problem finding one that is not far from where you live.
