Handy checklist for your next adventure

Everything you need for your next RV adventure!

Getting ‘off grid’ is one of the best ways to discover this amazing country. But when you’re excited to explore so many amazing places, it can be easy to hit the road without proper planning or preparation.

To avoid getting stuck when you reach your campsite, we’ve put together a bundle of handy checklists to ensure you have everything you need to get the most out of your RV adventure!

Happy RV-ing!

The Latitude25 Team

1. Pre-trip preparations

  • Let your community manager know when and how long you will be gone.
  • Fill out the “Where to re-direct your mail” form and provide it to your Community Manager.
  • Perishable foodstuffs – You may want to empty your refrigerator of any perishable foodstuffs.
  • Preparing your pet – Take the time to ensure they are booked in to a kennel or family or friend will look after your beloved furry friend. Or ensure if they are travelling with you make sure they have had a good check with the vet and you have what is necessary for their travels.
  • Subscriptions – you may want to suspend or cancel any magazine or newspaper or TV subscriptions you may have.
  • Utilities- your utilities will need to be paid for in your absence, (depending on what financial arrangements you have agreed to). Please contact your provider and advise how long you intend on being away
