While most RVs are owned by those aged 35 to 54, it goes without saying that anyone at any age can still get in on the fun – and this summer is the perfect time to try it out. A lifestyle for some and a summertime hobby for others, going RVing is perhaps the perfect way to bond with family and friends, and make some lasting memories along the way. Whether you plan on going for a summer weekend getaway or a month long vacation with your RV, you’re sure to enjoy every moment.
The benefits of RVing
RVs have been around for quite some time, and it’s not surprising that the trend is still very much alive. While there is a multitude of benefits when it comes to taking an RV out on the open road, there are a few that really stand out. Among the convenience and endless freedom that RVing can offer, it’s a great way to bond with family and friends, see parts of the country in a cost-efficient way, and can even take the stress out of strict travel itineraries.
If you’re in some need of some quality family time or a much-needed catch up with your friends, you should definitely consider an RV trip. Because you’ll all be sharing a smaller space than you do at home, it’s the perfect way to spend quality time together and build stronger relationships. Unlike hotel rooms, RVs offer a more “at-home” vibe, featuring home amenities like a kitchen, couch, and table, which provides a great setting for sharing a meal, playing board games, and feeling more at home.
While there are endless upsides to getting an RV for your next road trip, convenience has to be at the top of the list. Because RVs already come readily equipped with everything you’ll need, such as a kitchen, a bathroom and a place to sleep, you’re getting the comforts of home with the convenience of being able to go anywhere at any time – which puts a whole new meaning to the phrase “killing two birds with one stone”. Bringing along everything you’ll need on a trip is also easier than ever when you have an RV, as there is usually a range of storage space on board – meaning you won’t have to leave anything behind.
While purchasing a new vehicle can be a major financial decision, renting can be a convenient solution for a one-off RV trip, and provides the opportunity to make an educated purchase further down the line. It can also be a wonderful way to get your feet wet if you’re new to RVs and RVing in general. Renting can also be a great idea if you lead a busy lifestyle and don’t have time to maintain the vehicle when it comes to winterization and other necessary upkeep – or if you just don’t have the space to park one when it’s not in use where you’re living. Overall, renting can be a cost-efficient way to experience the joy of RVing no matter what your situation may be.
Freedom and flexibility
When many people think of RVing, they might not realize just how much freedom comes along with the keys. Not only do you have the freedom and convenience of going wherever you want when you want, but you are free from any restrictions that you might have at other accommodations, such as hotels. When you’re RVing, gone are the days of having to check out at a certain date or time – meaning you can plan your trip exactly how you wish. With an RV, planning a trip can be as simple as finding an RV park along the way to stay at, so finding a cost-friendly resort hotel and paying per night is no longer needed – not to mention that RV parks often end up much cheaper. This can bring flexibility to your trip, especially when the need to pack up and leave a hotel is a thing of the past when you have an RV: it becomes your home away from home.
With all of the benefits, freedom, and convenience that comes along with RVing, it’s no secret that it can be a great idea for a summer holiday. No matter who you are, taking an RV out on the open road for a trip can be a great way to bond with loved ones and make great memories that are sure to last a lifetime.
