If you said YES! to wanting to chat about any or all of these items, setting up an RVing to Alaska Planning Session with us is for you! What are you waiting for?!
STEP ONE – GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER
Once you reach out, we’ll redirect you to a discovery questionnaire to find out more about your planned trip, your travel style, your length of travel, your wishlist, your concerns, and anything else that may help us get to know you better. This will help us know what you like and dislike and will allow us to find the perfect recommendations for your upcoming adventure prior to our planning session to better utilize our time together during our planning session.
STEP TWO – SCHEDULE THE MEETING
Once we have received back your discovery email we will invoice for your planning session and setup a date and time that works for you. We are available most days and evenings, seven days a week. Please keep in mind we are in Alaska so we are 4-hours behind Eastern time zone and 1-hour behind the Pacific time zone.
STEP THREE – ATTEND THE PLANNING SESSION
Now the fun begins! Sit back, relax and ask away anything you would like to know about RVing to Alaska. Again the time is yours so please feel free to ask us just about anything. We are here to help you.
STEP FOUR – HAVE AN AMAZING ADVENTURE
All the hard part is done, all the planning has commenced, now all we do is wait for the snow to melt, pack up your rig and turn the wheels North towards Alaska! While on your trip, you’ll have exclusive one-on-one access to our personal cell phone number in the event you have any issues along the way.
What Can We Expect with a RVing to Alaska Planning Session?

What RVing to Alaska Consulting Doesn’t Include:
We do not book services or reservations such as campgrounds or tours. We are not a travel agency but a consulting service. However we will gladly help you find the right organizations to get in touch with. This may be something we do in the future but at this time we can only advise you on who to use.
We are not RV technicians so we can not help you fix a problem with your rig. We can however advise on what systems might be beneficial for your trip to Alaska.
While we are happy to discuss what RV might be better suited for your upcoming travels to Alaska, we can’t help you purchase your RV if you are still shopping.
We do not provide hand’s on help learning your RV systems. The dealer you purchased your RV from should be able to provide this service.
