The thought of packing up your entire life and traveling to a foreign country can be intimidating. Planning to purchase an RV and spend most of your time there for the next few months while touring a foreign country can seem even more daunting, but it doesn’t have to be! As RVers from Australia who did just that, we share some of our tips and tricks so you have everything you need for the road ahead.



1. Plan your trip in advance

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. It is much better to be prepared than to be stuck somewhere for lack of preparation. RVing in your country of origin is probably going to be completely different than RVing in the States. We did extensive homework online and found a lot of things were different about RVing here compared to in Australia. First of all, the roads are very different. The interstate road network in the States makes it easy to travel to a variety of locations including mountains, lakes, beaches, etc., no matter the size of your RV. In Australia, smaller travel trailers are much more popular, especially for remote Outback locations that are only accessible via 4×4. There are also lots of gravel roads that are not RV friendly, and the red dust that swarms up when you drive over them gets everywhere inside the RV!  You will want to know if the roads and routes you’re taking are accessible for RVers. You’ll also need to plan where you are you going to stay and how much money you plan to spend there.

Hi there! Megan & Drikus from the Fiddy States here! As native Australians, we’ve spent the last six months taking a break from work so we could travel the United States. Our goal was to see all 50 states, and now we can finally say that we have made it. 
Today, we’re excited to share with you our top 10 favorite RV destinations. This was a hard one since there are so many good places to choose from, but in no particular order, here we go!


  1.   Alaska



Alaska was by far our favorite state for many reasons. First, we LOVED having 24 hours of daylight during the summer. The sun would go down behind the mountains for about 3 hours and then slowly start coming up again. This allowed us to stay up late and enjoy all the amazingly beautiful scenery that Alaska has to offer. Exploring the entire state was amazing and we had a great time camping in various state parks, cooking on the grill and sitting next to the campfire watching the abundant Alaskan wildlife.


  1.  Valley of the Gods, Utah



The Valley of the Gods was by far our favorite boondocking location, and we’d definitely recommend this to anyone who has an RV and a few days to spend in the area. Utah is filled with breathtaking scenery, and we really loved the vivid orange colors and the vastness of the different rock formations – we definitely gave our DSLR a workout with the amount of photos we took. Utah actually reminded us a little bit of the outback back home. There is so much to explore in the surrounding areas, and we highly recommend Arches National Park for anyone who likes to hike!
