With more people than ever before interested in RV travel and camping up 500 percent in the United States, many couples are looking to RV trips and the lifestyle as a way to connect romantically. In truth, traveling together in close proximity and being out in nature can be a fantastic way to not only bond but make life-long memories. If you and your partner are looking for a romantic way to travel in an RV, read on.
Packing for Romance
If you and your partner are set on taking a romantic RV vacation, the first thing you’ll want to pack is clothes and items that will inspire romance. From the sexiest in womens underwear and lingerie to the best in men’s cologne, you’ll want to pack with an eye beyond everyday wear.
While it’s only practical that you’ll pack those regular camping clothes, nothing says romance like the open sky under the stars at night. When packing for a romantic RV trip with your sweetheart, go beyond cotton robes and that outdoorsy wardrobe. In the privacy of your motorhome, there’s no reason you can’t dress your sexiest.
Picking out Accommodations
When considering where to stay during your romantic traveling getaway, it’s a good idea to do a little extra research when it comes to picking out the perfect premier RV park. Call around to ask about amenities, showers, hot tubs, and things to do in the area that will help set a romantic mood.
For some couples, the best type of romantic trip is staying off the grid and being creative with parking spots. Think about what makes you and your partner unique when planning your romantic trip. If you’re an adventurous pair, you might want to build in extra time for visiting odd attractions along the way. A couple like you could benefit from boondocking instead of staying in an established park.
If you do plan to stay in a park, it might be a good idea to request a spot in the back of the park at a wooded or water feature campground site. With more privacy, you’ll have a better chance of setting a romantic mood. While you may have to pay extra for a premium spot, it could be worth it.
Stopping Along the Way
More than one epic romantic road trip has begun and ended with a plan to visit unique roadside attractions across the country. If you and your partner plan to hop from spot to spot, one way to make it more romantic is to turn your trip into a game. Whether it’s that you take pictures kissing at each stop, use each stop to tell each other one thing you love most about the other, or come up with another version of a romantic hop, taking advantage of stops along the way is a great way to add romance into the adventure.
To make your trip even more romantic, consider picking up a couple’s game you can play together during the driving. Vow to put electronics and technology aside during your travels. Instead of being connected to Wi-Fi, opt to unplug so you can focus more on the shared experiences of your trip together. Doing so will be something that will lead to a deeper and more meaningful connection.
In the end, taking a long road trip together can be a way to unplug from the road and focus on your romantic relationship. Whether you and your partner have been together for years or are just getting to know one another, sharing a life-changing RV road trip experience is a decision you’ll thank yourself for. Happy travels to you and your partner. Remember to take pictures!
