What Is the RV 3/3/3 Rule?

First, limit your travel to no more than 300 miles in one day.  Second, arrive no later than 3 p.m.  Finally, stay at your destination for at least three days.

How Long Will It Take You to Drive 300 Miles?

If you’re going down the highway at 75 mph, driving 300 miles will only take four hours. However, real-life can quickly turn a four-hour drive into five or six hours. You may need to stop for fuel or bathroom breaks. Plus, RVs typically aren’t cruising at 75 mph.

Why Don’t You Want to Arrive Later than 3 p.m.?

Arriving later than 3 p.m. can invite unwanted inconveniences as well as possible hazards.  Many RV parks and campgrounds only have attendants from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. And while most will also have after-hour check-in procedures, who do you call in the event of faulty hookups, double bookings, or locked gates? It’s much simpler to deal with the unknowns of a new campsite when there’s a person on-site to handle those.

What’s the Advantage of Staying at Least 3 Nights Somewhere?

Wouldn’t it be nice to sleep in the next day and not have to pack up and do it all over again immediately? That’s one advantage of staying at least three nights. The first night is all about getting set up and familiarizing yourself with your new site. You can spend the next two days either exploring the surrounding area or enjoying the campground.
