A new interest in traveling by recreational vehicle or RV has emerged due to COVID-19 travel restrictions and CDC recommendations of social distancing. Rather than give up the idea of the summer vacation, many people are planning epic road trips to visit all the famous sights in the United States. If traveling by caravan sounds like the adventure of the lifetime for you and your family, note that the popularity of RV travel will likely drive the prices of rental vehicles and campsites up considerably. The sooner you can book a reservation, the better because it will only be a matter of time before someone else beats you to the punch.
Recreational vehicles provide long-term comfort. Depending on the size of RV you have available, it can consist of several ‘rooms’ or areas, much like a tiny house or small apartment. Traveling by RV allows you to take your time and enjoy what is known as ‘slow travel.’ You can take advantage of free and low-cost campsites, too, meaning that you get to know a place more intimately before taking off to visit your next destination.
Other benefits of traveling by RV include the ability to lower your daily costs because you have access to beds, a shower, and a kitchen. You don’t need to rent hotel rooms or pay for storage lockers to keep your belongings in. You’re also able to bring your pets with you where they can be cared for by you instead of someone else while you’re gone.
There are many dealerships and businesses that let you rent an RV as opposed to buying it. If you’re planning to make your trip a one-and-done ordeal, you don’t want to spend tens of thousands of dollars on an RV. If you’re not looking for a fixer-upper that you can make into a glamper, you also can save a lot of money by renting as opposed to buying a recreational vehicle.
There are also websites that pair people who own RVs that they’re willing to rent to vacationers. Known as RV sharing, you’ll find several websites that offer options in your area. You can reach out to the owners directly to book their recreational vehicles. It’s another option for your consideration when you’re planning a vacation of a significant length.
