Money-saving tips on the road
by Bob Difley
Here are some ways to save money on the road:
• Stay longer in campgrounds with low rates. Stay a week for an even better rate.
• Drive 55 for better gas mileage.
• Use a gas app for cheapest service stations.
• Avoid jack-rabbit starts and sudden stops. It’s all about torque and kinetic energy.
• Keep tires properly inflated — your mileage will suffer otherwise.
• Lighten your load. Do not carry extra weight — it will cost you in mileage.
• Take advantage of tail winds to improve fuel mileage. Avoid head winds.
• Avoid ATM fees by getting cash with store purchases.
• Install CFL or LED interior lights. They last much longer and use less energy.
• Boondock more often.
• Install a solar or wind turbine system for renewable free power.
• Maintain your RV to save on repair bills.
• Eat out less — prepare your own meals.
• Treat your batteries right so they last longer.
• Buy from farmers markets, roadside farm stands, U-pick farms and orchards.
• Barter for a campsite if you have something to offer.
• Use FreeCampgrounds.com to find free or low-cost campgrounds.
• Reduce food costs by buying from bulk bins.
• Eat right and exercise (at least 30 minutes a day) to cut down on meds and doctor visits.
• Volunteer or become a camp host, which usually comes with a free campsite.
• Take a caretaking position for free rent. The Caretaker Gazette is a good resource.
• Shop at charity/thrift stores to save on just about everything.
