  1. Give your RV a good vacuuming. Dirt in the RV is something that can’t be prevented. So don’t let it collect. Consider doing this before every adventure.
  2. You have been taking a million and a half status update pictures for your friends and family, and it’s time to get those off your phone so you don’t clutter yourself. You can upload them to the cloud or save them to your home computer.
  3. Image 1Realizing you need a tad bit more space? You can [Trade in Your RV] for a new Class A motor-home.
  4. Clean out any old documents or licensing tabs from your RV, and make sure your papers are up to date. This can easily be forgotten, but it can save you in a pinch!
  5. Glove boxes can go unseen for a long time! Take a peek at yours and clear out any unneeded items.
  6. Clean out any clothes that might have been left in your RV. If the last time you took the RV out was in the winter, you might consider removing your coats and boots. Or just rock that fur coat and scarf on the beach! 
  7. Clean out the fridge. If you’re waiting until months after a trip to clean your RV’s fridge, you might have a bad time. You’ll thank yourself – this needs to be kept clean! 
  8. Items break down, that is a fact of life. Do you have any old flashlights that somehow make it darker, or umbrellas that couldn’t hold back a light drizzle laying around? Get rid of anything that is simply not working.
  9. Realizing your RV can’t fit any of your new toys? You can consign your older RV with us and upgrade it into a BRAND NEW TOY HAULER!
  10. Image 2Organize your camping gear. Nothing is worse than when you are about to embark on an adventure and spend the next 30 minutes (or more!) finding your gear.
  11. Speaking of toys. Maybe give your dirt bike or similar toys a wash. Just because they are called dirt bikes doesn’t mean they are supposed to be made of it.
  12. Clean out any cabinets you have. People forget what is in their RV all the time. Take a look and make sure you have what you need, and remove what you don’t.
  13. Boats can be quite fickle, so now is the time to start making sure they are good to go! De-Winterize your ride so you can get out on the water as soon as possible. You can do just that at Bretz RV & Marine!

  16. Owning a Class A Motorhome is on many people’s bucket-list, but it simply might be too much space for you. Downsize your ride by trading in at Bretz RV & Marine.
  17. You don’t want your first stop on your vacation to be the gas station. Fill it up beforehand so that you’re good to go for when your adventure begins!
  18. Make sure your car is ready to tow your Travel Trailer or Fifth-Wheel. You don’t want to dampen the fun by getting stuck in the sun.
