Industry experts estimate 25 million Americans will travel by RV by the end of the summer.
If you’ve never embarked on an RV journey, you may wonder why so many people chose this seemingly unconventional method of travel.
RV traveling can be a thrilling, exciting, and an adventurous journey whether with friends or family. Keep reading to discover the benefits of an RV road trip.
1. RV Traveling Is Affordable
The number one reasons families choose RV travel for their summer vacation is the affordability factor.
When you travel in an RV, your travel and accommodation costs are rolled into one. Instead of renting a hotel room for family members, there’s more than enough space to sleep inside your RV.
And while some may argue that the costs associated with maintaining and hauling an RV outweigh the benefits, they aren’t doing it right. There are many resources out there, like Camping Forge, to help you tackle the RV lifestyle.
2. Take the Whole Family
When you travel in an RV, there’s room for the whole family. While that multi-generational trip seemed impossible before, it’s more than feasible with an RV.
Bring along your grandparents, children, grandchildren, and even friends. There are RVs that can comfortably seat up to 10 people. The number of people allowed to travel in an RV depends on the available seat belts.
Remember that if you’re hauling your RV with a vehicle, that means even more room for passengers. Then, pack a tent to comfortably accommodate everyone at your camping stops.
3. Road Trips Involve Multiple Destinations
Unlike a traditional vacation, you don’t have to spend your whole trip visiting just one city.
Many people enjoy cross-country road trip camping. With an RV, you’re able to travel to and explore as many destinations as you and your family want.
Many people choose to separate travel days with short stays at camping grounds. Each stop has different activities and sights for your family to explore. Then, its back on the road to find your next destination.
4. Enjoy Simpler Times
Arguably the most enjoyable aspect of RV travel is the lifestyle.
Traveling together with your family in an RV brings back memories of simpler times. Encourage your family to unplug during the trip, leaving cell phones turned off.
Instead, spend your trip sightseeing and relaxing. Enjoy evenings around the campfire and spending quality time making memories.
Enjoy RV Traveling This Summer
With these four reasons, you’re ready to enjoy RV traveling this summer.
Now it’s time to decide if you want to rent or buy your RV. Renting is the cheaper option that allows you to take a trial run to see if you like the RV lifestyle. But, buying saves you money over time and gives you the freedom to travel whenever and wherever.
The choice is yours — either way, you’re bound to have a great trip.
