Taking an RV trip with a Baby

Jump to last reply

As part of a longer holiday we are planning to take a trip from NY to Miami using an RV. Our final destination is Suriname in South America where we have to attend a wedding, but since we are flying half way across the world we want to add some additional places to our itinerary.

The only thing currently holding us back from undertaking this trip is that we will have to take our son along, who at the time will be just over on and a half years old. I think that, especially with an RV, it should be possible to do. We have about 10 days, meaning we need to cover only 200-300 miles a day. We could stop here and their if he gets weary of travel, and we don't need to rush to be a certain places as we have all we need with us.

However, there are concerns, especially about the safety of traveling using an RV, and if there are indeed sufficient opportunities for us to stop, get supplies, get help in the event something happens to the RV or ourselves and generally making sure he travels safely.

My question is twofold:
1. I was wondering if anyone has experience undertaking such a trip with a young child.
2. The particular route we are planning to take is more by circumstance then choice, but there should be several must sees along any routes in the US I gather. Any tips?

Thanks!
