Satellite

When it comes to an economical Internet option, satellite technology will not be the choice. Of the three options, it is the most expensive compared to cellular or Wi-Fi. With a satellite system, you’ll have the option of manual or automatic pointing of the dish. On average, satellite Internet can run around $80 per month.

Cellular

Cellular is versatile because it can connect to your smartphone via a USB cable. While one person is driving, everyone else can be surfing the Net because most cellular programs allow more than one device to be connected at one time. Average cost is around $60 a month but it is not unlimited usage. Data cards are normally 5GB per month.

Wi-Fi

If you’ve heard the words “hot spot” you’ll know it’s in regard to Wi-Fi adaptors built into newer laptops. The small device allows multiple devices, comes with a charger, and available from 5GB to 100GB depending on the provider. Prices generally start around $57 per month and up.

Choosing the RV Park for You

Mountain RV Park

Choosing the right RV park can make or break your vacation. In order to find the best campground, it’s important to do your research ahead of time. There are many ways of finding and researching RV parks. Here are some helpful tips to get you on the right track.

Determine your needs

Not all RV parks are created equal. Make a short list of what you’re looking for to help narrow your search. Start by the size of your RV. A lot of parks are only able to accommodate smaller RVs. If you have a larger RV, put that at the top of your list. Next, what kind of hook ups are you looking for? Do you need full hook ups or none at all? This is extremely important for not all sites offer hook ups desired and some parks have none at all.

Amenities

What amenities are you looking for? If you’re traveling with the family and children, you might want activities to keep the kids busy. Some parks have everything from pools to an arcade room. If you plan on bringing your computer, you should find a place that provides Wi-Fi.

Do your research

Once you’ve determined your needs and amenities, its time to do your research. The best place to gather information is online. Do a search where you plan to be vacationing. Having your needs already narrowed down will greatly help to improve your search. Read reviews and make a short list of the top places you want to stay.

Attractions

Though you might find many parks you like, some might not be located where the attractions are. Make sure when picking a park that you’re not too far out to enjoy the close by attractions during your vacation.

Make your reservations

Even if you found the park you want to stay at, they might be booked up by the time you arrive. To prevent this, make your reservations ahead of time. This is also a good chance to ask questions. Ask the park where they would recommend for the best camping site that meets your needs.

Follow these tips and enjoy camping in your Pan Pacific RV.
