Were you aware that the largest number of diesel pusher drivers who are on the road alone are women? Of this group, and according to the Travel Industry Association, 35% are the range from 18-35 and driving the diesel pusher or RV as a single driver.

Driving a diesel pusher gives an aura of freedom to women. Women do not have to check into hotels that are unknown or get out and explore unsafe and unfamiliar territories while in their diesel pusher.

Read the following tips on how to be safe on the road as a woman driving solo in a diesel pusher or RV. Be alert. Listen to your gut.

1. Before leaving in your RV or diesel pusher, make sure that you leave a detailed itinerary with your family, a neighbor, a friend, or all three. Leave phone numbers and addresses of the RV diesel pusher campgrounds where you may be parking your motor home. If there happens to be any change of plan, and you park in a diesel pusher camp ground that you did not leave with them, notify each person immediately upon arrival.

2. Take extra items of importance, such as batteries. Make sure you keep cell phone batteries on board of the diesel pusher in case of emergency.

3. Plan your RVing route before you hit the road. Research recreational vehicle camp grounds before you leave your home town so that you know where your RV will fit.

4. It is very important that you try to arrive at the designated RV camp site before the sun goes down. This is so that you can explore the basic necessities and know where all emergency points of contact are on site, as well as the well-lit areas.

5. If you arrive at the motor home camp grounds and it feels peculiar or unsafe, then leave. Have a back up camp site noted so that you can drive in your RV to it rather than staying at a place you do not feel safe.

6. Make sure that if you chose to explore or hike that you leave details with someone on site of the RV grounds and in your RV in case of emergency. Details should include where you went, as well as the time you left. Also, write the time you expect that you should return and an emergency contact number.

7. Keep maps with you, but keep them out of site from the public. You want to make sure that you give the impression that you know where you are at all times.

8. If you find yourself with a flat, pull over to the side of the road, and call for assistance.

9. Never pick up hitch hikers, and do not get in the car with strangers if you are stranded.

10. Make sure that you have water, snacks, and an emergency medical kit on board the motorhome, in case that you break down in a remote area.

11. If for any reason you see flashing lights behind you to pull over, make sure that you wait until you are in a well lit area.

12. Listen to your gut and trust your instincts. Call for help, if necessary.
