There are many reasons why RV travel is becoming more popular with families. Among the best ways to travel and explore the country is by RV if you are an avid traveler. An RV (recreational vehicle) will enable you to take all the comforts of your home with you when you go to a national park or on a music adventure.
RV travel has a reputation of being only for those who have saved for years to be able to afford it. Our experience shows that you don’t have to wait until you retire to enjoy RV travel. Flexible travel offers many advantages over traditional travel, including reduced costs and flexibility.
Home on the Road in Your RV
The ability to feel at home while traveling in an RV is a major advantage of RV travel. Even if it’s just a rented RV, the majority of them will have a kitchen with microwave and fridge, TV and VCR, and a bathroom with shower.
Moreover, some RVs even go even further by having slide out rooms (like ours), which further enhance the space inside and make it feel even more spacious. In an RV, you can travel and camp in far more comfort than if you slept in a tent.
Save Money With RV Travel
Even though RV travel can cost more on gas, the savings on other travel expenses can be considerable. It is still possible to incur costs up to 50 percent less than those incurred during traditional travel even if an RV is rented. Obviously, the calculation of savings is affected by the length of the trip, the number of miles you drive, how many people are in your family, and how you plan your vacation. Even expensive RV parks are comparable to a moderate hotel when compared with motorhomes.
RV Travel Provides a Flexible Itinerary
If you want a flexible vacation, RV travel is your best option. Just imagine not having to worry about your hotel schedule each night, just going with the flow. When you travel by RV, you are completely free. You are free to stop wherever you like, whenever you like, and you can even extend or shorten your stay. Further, you have the ability to change your location at any time.
Unlimited Luggage – Well, Sort Of
RVs have no luggage restrictions, so you can bring as much luggage as you want as long as it fits. This is different from traveling with airlines, trains, or buses. Aside from being able to pack everything you need, you can even bring extras such as sports equipment, bicycles, computers, etc. Another benefit is that most RVs come fully equipped. You may find that an RV you rent has many essentials already included such as dishes, cutlery, and bedding. In addition, if you own your RV, then you are likely to keep it stocked with all the necessities anyway — which means you could show up with your clothes packed in a bag and be ready to go!
Family Time Together & Making Memories
It can be difficult to find time to spend with family when we have busy lives. When you are traveling in a motorhome, you can’t help but have some “together time.” RVing allows parents to spend quality time with their children without too many distractions. It may be easy to separate in the backyard or different rooms of the house at home.
RVs may offer some space, but not like a home, so you’ll probably spend most of the time together.
RV travel also offers opportunities to engage in family activities that you wouldn’t otherwise do, such as telling stories around a campfire at night. It’s something to look forward to for years to come. It helps build family bonds and fosters a sense of community among everyone.
The other thing we have discovered about RVing is that there is much more camaraderie. Most people stay to themselves in hotels. In RV parks, you can meet people from all over the world and develop friendships.
Campgrounds like the popular KOAs offer entertainment, game nights, and social events where you can get to know other campers. Sharing stories with other adults and letting your children play with their children are both great ways to bond. Even though many resorts offer activities, we’ve found that it’s not the same. These RV parks are truly different in the way people behave – it seems like everyone is more friendly and open to interacting with one another. It is quite an enjoyable experience.
Power Up Your Devices
While many of us want to escape technology on vacation, with the advancement of technology, it can be difficult to completely go off-grid, even when camping. In addition, it can sometimes be comforting to have some technology with you while you travel – such as being able to watch Netflix together in the RV.
Get Closer to the Great Outdoors With RV Travel
RV travel is a popular choice because it’s a great way to get closer to nature. There’s just something about being in the wilderness, where you might wake up to a moose in your camp or gaze at the stars at night while campfire smoke swirls around you. The best way to cook at night is over a campfire!
You Can Bring Your Pet Along
Traveling in a motorhome is one of the best things you can do, since you can bring your pet along. When you go on vacation, it can be hard to leave your dog behind since they are a part of the family.
Remove the Hassles of Typical Travel With an RV!
RVing removes all the hassles of traditional travel, from using your own kitchen and bathroom to avoiding long flight delays. With a motorhome, you can simply gather your whole family, load up everything you need, and hit the road. We highly recommend that you give RVing a try if you have never done so before.
