According to RVIA’s Understanding RV Consumer and Product Trends presentation, approximately 89% of RV owners say they made the purchase as it allows their family to go camping in a more convenient way than more traditional camping options. There are many different types of RVs from travel trailers to fifth wheels that can be purchased from RV dealers in PA and across the country.
If you’re still on the fence as to whether RV ownership is for you, you might want to consider these five reasons for doing so.
Saving Big on Accommodation
Staying at a hotel usually means shelling out at least $100 a night depending on the destination, and in some spots, especially near major cities and popular attractions, it can be two or three times that. Parking your RV typically ranges from $15 to $50 a night, and you might even be able to find some places to park for free, so it’s easy to see just how quickly the savings can add up.
You Can Bring Your Pets
If you travel in an RV, your pets can come along with you which means no worries about who will watch your furry best friends – and, you may save the expense of having to board them too. They can enjoy the beautiful outdoors with you and always sleep in the same space at night which helps them to feel more comfortable in a new environment. It will be easy to store Fido and Fluffy’s necessities to keep them happier and keep messes to a minimum too.
Overnights in Places Where There are No Hotels
In more remote places such as in and around national parks, there are often no hotels, but there are usually campgrounds, allowing RV travelers to be just steps away from the spectacular sights and wildlife. Big festivals, concerts and car racing events sometimes have special areas set up for RV campers allowing them to spend the night in the heart of all the action.
Enjoying the Comforts of Home
With traditional camping, there usually aren’t many comforts of home that you can bring with you, but with an RV, you can take just about everything you want, even your French press so you won’t have to miss out on your favorite morning coffee. If it comes equipped with satellite TV, you may even be able to watch the big game right in your campsite, enjoying the best of both worlds, sports and the great outdoors. It allows you to travel without ever having to leave the things at home you love the most.
No Long Layovers or Security Lines
If you dread layovers and long security lines, traveling in an RV means none of those frustrations, including not have to worry about what will be okay with TSA and what won’t. The only layovers you’ll have to “endure” are the ones you want to, like stopping at a lookout point to take in the view or taking a nap if you want too. You won’t get stuck if a flight gets delayed or cancelled, ending up with a layover so long you might as well have driven there.
