Why RV’s Are The New Way of Travel

Since the COVID pandemic, traveling by RV has become increasingly popular. Traveling in an RV has appealed to many people because they are private and allow you to stay in beautiful, nature-filled areas. It allows families to travel together at a lower cost and cuts down on the need to eat out while traveling. Being able to bring your pet with you is another bonus for many people. 

By not staying in a hotel, travelers can avoid having specific check-in and check-out times that can get in the way of plans, creating more flexibility. Around 36% of the population wants to or is planning to take an RV trip within the next year. More people are working remotely, and that means they can work and travel as long as they have access to the internet. There have also been developments with RV share rental programs. This allows people to have access to RVs to travel without having to pay the full price of an RV. However, another attraction is the fact that these homes on wheels are not as expensive as paying rent or having a mortgage. There has been an increase in young people renovating buses, vans, and old RVs to take up life on the road or simply have an affordable place to live. 

Post-pandemic, more people want to travel and see the world. The most popular RV destinations are national parks, state parks, and beaches. Being able to bring a car while RVing allows travelers to go to other places nearby and explore those areas as well. The spike in gas prices has not slowed down the RV industry in any way; in fact, it continues to keep growing. With work schedules being more flexible or remote and the desire for leisure and adventure up, RVing will continue to be one of the best ways to travel.
