What Is Glamping?

Glampers want the ultimate adventure in nature while still enjoying the creature comforts of home sweet home. This new way of experiencing the wonders of the world marries camping and glamour, transforming the old school idea of “roughing it” into an event that is less about battling the elements and more about enjoying the simple pleasures of a roadside trip.

Tips for Creating the Ultimate Adventure in a Rental RV

1. Choose a rental RV with luxury amenities.

Once you know who will be going on the journey with you, then it is time to rent the RV of your dreams. Don’t forget to factor in any pets that will be along for the ride; we have many RVs at Suncoast that are pet friendly so your furry friends can enjoy vacation too! Practical considerations about who will be driving and what size RV they can handle must be part of the decision too. At Suncoast RV Rental, we provide driving instruction in the RV that you have rented to ensure that you are comfortable with the rig on the road.

After the logistical decisions are made about RV size requirements, then it is time to have some fun and investigate amenities. The many luxury amenities available are sure to impress even the most discriminating glamper.

Below are some amenities to consider.

  • Full Kitchen
  • Slide-Outs
  • Foldable, outdoor picnic table
  • Queen-sized bed
  • Shower and tub
  • Full electronics package
  • Flat screen TV
  • Rooftop Deck
  • Reusable eating utensils

2. Locate the perfect camping destination.

Any luxury camping experience is all about the destination. Doing some research before hitting the road will be well worth the effort. Obviously, RV parks differ wildly. It makes sense to make a list of what you and your travel companions want as you do your homework. You want to identify top-rated campgrounds or sites that provide 50 amp hookups for the full glamper experience.

Some questions to answer as you do your research are:

Do hiking trails interest you?

Do you want access to a swimming pool?

Would a dog park be a welcome amenity?

Do you want to be close to shopping?

Is there a shuttle service provided?

Would you enjoy a lake and water sports?

Are there day excursions planned by the park to nearby places of interest?

Would a lodge onsite with a fireplace be nice?

Do you want sports courts available?

Are you interested in dining out in the area?

Is a gift shop or store where you can buy supplies something you want?

Do you want a laundromat?

Are you interested in a hot tub?

Are you hoping to get a massage or other spa treatments onsite?

3. Upgrade your RV travel experience with these practical hacks.

While it might be impossible to rent an RV with absolutely everything you want, that does not need to stop you from taking matters into your own hands and taking some initiative to improve your life on the road as a spoiled glamper.

Conserve your precious water supply with a well-designed shower head.

Water conservation is something even glampers have to consider when they venture out into the wilderness away from a handy supply of water. Considering that showers are one of the biggest uses of water, anything that can be done to improve water usage makes your trip less stressful as your adventures take you away from a water supply. Showerheads with an off and on switch are perfect for camping, stretching out your water reserves to last longer.

Create your on-the-go laundromat.

No one likes to go to the laundromat. Glampers in particular may resist the urge whenever possible. But in those rare cases when you are out in some remote corner of the world and the RV is not equipped with a washer and dryer, then this tip can come in handy.

In a pinch, a bucket and a plunger can be used as a washing machine. Then you can hang your clothes up outside on a clothesline you set up for that purpose. Granted, it’s better to have an RV with a washer and dryer, but there may be times this is not possible.

The Takeaway

Travelers are in search of a deeper connection with nature. That doesn’t mean they want to go without their Netflix or suffer from a poor night’s sleep. Fortunately, with the right RV, destination, and a few other helpful tips, glampers can have it all.
