Over the past year, recreational vehicle (RV) travel has increased and doesn’t show signs of slowing down. So, what is it about RV travel that has sparked the interest of so many?
Whether you’re planning a quick weekend getaway to a local state park or a month-long trek across the country, an RV can be the perfect companion to your adventure.
While an RV has the ability to transport you through weeks-long cross-country exploration, it’s also a great option for shorter, local trips – you get to satisfy your urge to get away from home with many of the same comforts of home still at your fingertips. For longer trips, an RV can significantly reduce hotel expenses, giving you a convenient place to stay that feels like home and doesn’t require a nightly rate.
RVs also give you a great deal of control over your travel plans and preferences.
For instance, if you’re looking to travel while maintaining social distancing from others, RV travel can be a great option. You don’t have to worry about how busy a hotel lobby may be, use shared elevators, or wait in line for a continental breakfast.
If you’re someone who’s particular about cleanliness, RV travel can remove some of these worries, as well. While you may not be able to control the tidiness of the campsite you’re parking at, you do have the ability to maintain your RV’s interior to your standards.
Traveling in an RV also allows you flexibility in planning your travels. You’re not bound by airport departure and arrival times or set bus or train routes. You decide when you leave, where you go, and how you end up at your destination.
Depending on your destination and the type of RV you choose, an RV may serve as your sole means of transportation, as well as take the place of a hotel.
In addition to the practical conveniences this provides in terms of cost savings and flexibility, using an RV for both travel and lodging allows for smaller conveniences, too. For instance, once you pack your RV, you don’t have to unload and carry luggage in and out of hotels. Everything you need is kept in one place throughout your trip.
Additionally, depending on how your RV is equipped, it may provide you with the opportunity to prepare your own food, allowing you to avoid unnecessary spending on takeout or restaurant meals.
If you can work remotely and/or have your children enrolled in virtual or homeschool studies, RV travel could allow you to make the most of this opportunity. Choose an RV that gives you and your family space to work or learn, and once you’ve signed off for the day, you can simply step out into whatever environment you’ve chosen to enjoy during your time away from home.
