Expect the Unexpected: How To Handle Scary Situations on the Road
RV Horror Stories: Emergencies
The RV lifestyle isn’t all glamourous, pretty, or even fun. Sometimes it can be downright terrifying. Breakdowns, emergency situations, and heartbreaking events still happen whether you’re on the road or not.
Whether you’re a full-time or part-time RVer, you should have an emergency kit. Emergencies are just that, emergencies. You don’t know when they will happen or what you will need, and it’s best not to wait around to find out.
Check out this post from the Getaway Couple about building an RV emergency kit. This post will walk you through how to create the best RV emergency kit to handle any situation or disaster. No one likes to talk about it or think about it, but everyone needs to be prepared.
RV Horror Stories: Lost Pets
If you’re RVing with pets, surely the thought of losing them on the road has crossed your mind. Pets are a wonderful addition to any family, but the thoughts of something happening and not being able to find them while RVing is enough to keep anyone awake at night.
This RVing nightmare actually came true for Tom and Caitlin Morton when they lost their dog, Bella. It’s a terrifying situation that we wouldn’t wish on anyone! They put together this article on what happened, how they lost Bella, and how they found her.

RV Horror Stories: Scary Boondocking Experiences
One of the first things you probably wonder before you try boondocking for the first time is: is it safe? The short answer is yes, but you have to be smart! Since boondocking is usually out in remote places with no access to amenities (and many times, no cell signal), it can turn into a scary situation quickly.
Scary situations while boondocking are rare, but they can and do happen. Tom and Caitlin Morton from Mortons on the Move put together 9 of their Scariest Boondocking Experiences From Over 5 Years of Full Time RVing.
Boondocking Doesn’t Have to Be Scary
While yes, you will hear some RV horror stories about boondocking, it doesn’t have to be scary. If you want to try boondocking but don’t know where to start, the RV Masterclass Boondocking 101 course can help!
This course will help you learn the ropes, gain confidence, and ultimately save money by being able to take advantage of free camping opportunities! Boondocking 101 walks you through the best safety practices and shows you, step by step, how to find the best boondocking campsites.
Halloween in an RV
You might not be able to celebrate Halloween like normal in an RV, but in some ways, it might be better. Who else do you know can take a ghost town themed road trip whenever they feel like it?
