…Never pack more than you think you’ll need.
Packing too much stuff will add weight to your load and driving a heavier camping rig will decrease your gas mileage, leading to a more costly trip. In addition, you will be at a disadvantage when braking and accelerating compared to the cars around you, making your trip especially accident-prone. A simple way to shed some cargo pounds is to substitute your glass products with plastic products. In addition, you could take items out of their bulky packaging and store them in zip-lock bags. Ultimately, only bring what you know you will need. Remember, more food can be purchased on the road!
