WHAT ARE RV HOOKUPS? In this video, I’m explaining what are full rv hookups and what hookups are needed for an rv. Learn what side are rv hookups on. If you’ve ever thought about RV living (travel trailer or motorhome) then you’ll need to learn the difference between boondocking and full hookup. Living in an rv without hook ups feels more like camping!
What does it mean to “hook up” your RV?
In order to use an RV you will need to have the basic utilities (water, electricity, sewer) to be able to cook, take a shower, wash your hands, or use the bathroom.
What are full hookups?
Before you plan a trip to any RV campground you will want to know what type of “hook ups” they provide. “FULL HOOKUPS” means you will get “basic utilities” water, sewer, electric usually. If you’re lucky, they will have cable and wifi connections included.
In some cases, you may only have water and electric. If this is the case, you will need to move your RV to dump your tanks or use a sewage wagon. (P.S. >> I only stay at FULL HOOKUPS with sewer at my site.)
Moral of the story, DO YOUR RESEARCH. Look online, call ahead and read reviews to find out the nitty gritty before you book your stay!

How much does it cost to hook up an RV say at a campground?
Daily is most expensive and runs $35-100 per day depending on the amenities and location of the campground.
Some RV parks will offer a discounted weekly rate off of the normal daily rate.
Monthly is the cheapest option or longer if they will let you stay. Monthly can be cheaper on the side of $300 a month or over a $1,000 again depending on the RV park everyone is different.
