Whether you are a longtime RV owner or are relatively new to the industry, you know how important it is to fully prep your vehicle before hitting the road. Your tires are in good condition (including your spare), your tank is filled with fresh water, and your generator is ready to go. But what about communication?

Radio communication is an overlooked but essential part of RV ownership. Whether you need it in case of emergencies, for communication between vehicles in a caravan, or to use as a base camp at your campsite, radios are crucial for a smooth and successful RV trip.

Two-way communication is so important while traveling the country by RV.

RV Radio Readiness on the Road

RV owners know some of the best destinations to visit in a mobile or motor home are in the wilderness – including national state parks such as Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon, or Blue Ridge Parkway. But if you have visited these wonderous scenes, you may have noticed your cell phone service was less than reliable. If you are camping in a remote desert, heavily wooded area, or in the mountains, don’t depend solely on your cell phone. Make sure you have a two-way radio in your RV.

The MXT275 MicroMobile® Two-Way Radio ensures a constant form of communication to the outside world. This GMRS radio boasts 15 watts of power, NOAA Weather Alert Radio, and is compatible with Midland FRS/GMRS walkie talkies. Its fully integrated control mic allows for quick and easy communication, and its compact size will not take up too much space in your RV.

A MicroMobile® MXT275 is extremely useful and necessary in your RV.

If you experience an emergency while on the road or while camping, you will want a quick and reliable form of communication to call for help. A powerful storm system can render a cell phone tower completely unusable. If you are out in the wild, be sure to have a reliable form of communication that also features NOAA Weather Alert Radio.

Two-Way Communication While RV Caravanning

Caravanning is a popular way to travel with friends or to trek the country while experienced RVers guide you. But if you need a reliable way to contact your fellow drivers, make sure you have a MicroMobile® radio installed in your RV. Cell phones can easily lose service which can be worrisome if you need to quickly notify your fellow travelers of any changes in your route.

The rule of thumb for RV caravans is to choose your own time to head out but to arrive to your destination by a specified time in the evening. Some RVers prefer to get an early start by hitting the road at 7 am, allowing for more stops along the way, while others may choose to leave at 10 am. These staggered departure times mean it is important to keep in contact along the way.

Midland MicroMobiles are so important for constant contact while RV caravanning.

As we mentioned before, your cell phone is likely to lose signal while out in the desert or while climbing mountain roads. If an early caravanner would like to warn others in the group of highway closures, dangerous road conditions, or bad weather, the easiest way is to use a GMRS MicroMobile® radio.

The MXT275 allows for constant contact between users as long as they are tuned to the same channel. The radio can also be used to inform the group of RV troubles, a late arrival, or if they just want to make sure the rest of the group notices the beautiful vista they are traveling through. Make sure you keep up with the group with a MicroMobile® radio.

Base Camp + Walkie Talkies = Safe, Prepared RV Camping

You’ve been driving all day and now you’ve finally reached your destination – a charming campsite in the forest. But if you want to keep in contact with family members while at the campsite, make sure you have walkie talkies along with your MicroMobile®.

Your kids or grandkids may want to play around the campsite, go for a hike, or collect firewood in the evening. Don’t rely on cell phones to keep in communication with them – make sure they carry their own radio. The X-Talker® T71VP3 Two-Way Radiogets extensive range and can communicate with the MXT275 in your RV. Your MXT275 will work as the base camp while others are out exploring.

The Midland X-Talker T71VP3 walkie talkies are so important for communication at an RV campsite.

RVing is becoming more popular in the United States by the day. For some, it’s more than a pastime; it’s a lifestyle. Whether you love it for exploring gorgeous American landscapes or spending more time with family, RVing is a great way to experience new adventures. Just make sure you are prepared – keep your RV fueled up, packed with camping gear, and in constant communication with those around you.
