Do Not Let Your Fear Impact Your Family Cheer
In your life you have been able to conquer some of your most gut wrenching fears. Most importantly, you have learned that many of your greatest fears have really been an illusion and not a true representation of the situation. Remember when you were young and you had a yearning to learn how to ride your bike? It took courage to get on the bike, without someone holding you up, to face the fear of being or not being successful. As time passed riding a bike became second nature, part of your subconscious mind. Now, think about first time you drove a car. You probably experienced the same feelings, but over time it became a part of your subconscious mind.
During your family vacations you have traditionally traveled by car or sport utility vehicle. However, in the past you have considered renting an RV to make the travel experience a bit more exciting. The only problem is, you start to experience those same thoughts and feelings you had when you were learning how to ride your bike or how to drive a car. When it comes to renting an RV you may be asking the questions: (1) will it be too big? Or (2) will it to too long? Fear not. The power of your thinking is the key to you linking. Most RV travel takes place on the highway. Therefore, after having the experience of driving one, it becomes second nature. Courage is not the absence of fear, but doing it with fear.
I admit, I am in no way equating that a fall from a bike and scraping a knee is the same as having an unsuccessful experience with an RV. However, with proper instruction and knowledge, you can reap the great benefits of an RV vacation. Here are a few helpful hints when operating an RV:
- Consider the size of your unit. Considering the size of your unit gives you a pretty good indication of time and space when you travel or are maneuvering the unit.
- Remember to turn wide. Making wide turns when driving the unit is paramount. Without a wide turn, you are destined to make a mistake and have a portion of your security deposit not returned (you will do fine!)
- Seek help when backing up. When backing up the unit it is always beneficial to have someone stand outside the unit to provide feedback and direction. The last thing you want to do is make judgements based on an illusion. More, not four, eyes are always better than two.
- Know your clearance. Knowing the height of your unit will save you a lot of heartache when traveling through local areas. The last thing you want is to “blow your top” because you have blown the top on the RV unit.
Do not let your fear get the best of you. The opportunity to vacation or tailgate in an RV is an experience that your family will remember forever. It will deliver a level of cheer because you have overcome your personal fear. Call Touchdown RV 317-662-0414 TouchdownRV.com for a quote today!
