Embarking on a trip

Hi there,
We live in New Hill, NC.
Just now renting an RV for a 10 day trip with 4 kids between 7 & 10 years old (and possibly our adult daughter)!
Planning to go from the Raleigh area, visit family in Dacula, GA & then in Paris, AR.
So, we're thinking of additional stops in Atlanta, Memphis, Nashville, Knoxville, & Asheville, NC along with staying somewhere between Atlanta & Memphis.
Any advice/helpful hints?

Atlanta's stone mountain park is nice. the koa at nashville is good. in memphis Tom Sawyer park is great. it is on the banks of the Miss. river. Pigeon Forge is a short distance from Knoxville. River plantation is a nice park.

Hi, welcome to IRV2. Stop at visitor centers and check out what great things are available in that area, or the internet. It will be hectic trying to see much in only 10 days. Enjoy and safe travels.

Hi and . Hope you have a great trip.

6 people in an RV is tight. Pack light to conserve space. Work out your shower schedule, the typical 6 or 10 gallon hot water heater does't go far. Plan your trip around 300 miles a day to start then adjust from there. Plan to be off the road by 5:00 or so to allow time to set up in daylight. THis will also allow the kids time to play outside (do kids still do that?).

When you pick up the RV make sure you understand setup procedures, sewer, water, power, TV, propane, etc...

Traveling at this time of year nights will cool to cold so watch the propane.

Pre chill food for the refer before setting out from home.

Others will have some suggestions too the rest you will learn along the way as we all have, it's half the fun.
