Imagine the ultimate road trip, where you’re traveling with the comforts of home, on your own schedule, and with your family or partner. The good news is, you don’t just have to imagine it. You can experience it, with an RV.
There are so many reasons to venture to new destinations in an RV, and we guarantee you’ll be left with a unique and memorable experience for years to come. Dig in for more reasons why you must take an RV road trip. It just may become your new favorite way to travel!
RVing Is Like Taking Your Home With You
These days, if you have a feature in your home, you can have it in your RV. From fireplaces to extra storage space to a full-sized bathroom and washers and dryers, many furnishings and amenities are making their way into these homes on wheels. Bring your favorite books, snacks, and games. (Just be sure to stick to your RV’s cargo-carrying capacity for safety’s sake). Sleep in a king-size bed and enjoy a fresh coffee in the morning, all set to enjoy the sights and experiences of the day ahead because you’re rested and relaxed.
You Can Bring Your Pets On An RV Trip
If your pet travels well in a vehicle, bring them along on your RV road trip! Save money on a sitter, don’t worry about them being anxious at home alone or at a kennel, and get in quality bonding time with your furry friends. And because you’re traveling via RV, you’ll have plenty of space to store their bed, food, treats, and toys. Another benefit to RVing with your pet is the stimulation they’ll receive from going on walkies in new environments — so many new things to see, sniff, and explore!
RVing Saves You Money On Vacations
No hotels, no airfare, no eating out for every meal. When you go on an RV road trip, you have everything you need with you, so you’ll save a good few dollars as a result. Storage space in your RV means you can bring along bikes, kayaks, golf clubs, and other gear so you can participate in activities on your stops — and you won’t have to rent equipment! You’ll also save on eating out since you can store food and prepare meals in your RV.
RV Travel Gives You Freedom
Go to sleep when you want, and wake up when you want. No need to check in and check out by a certain time! Love a particular town you’re visiting? Stick around longer! Destination not quite what you expected? Leave early! Did a local tell you about a hidden gem you need to see? Add the extra stop to your itinerary. On an RV road trip, you’re not tied to a daily schedule, offering you the freedom to see and do what you want, when you want. If you purchased travel insurance, however, you do need to stick to your travel dates to make sure you’re covered, or to return a rented RV on time.
RVing Lets You Appreciate Nature
Ahh! Falling asleep to nature’s lullaby (crickets and hooting owls), and waking up to nature’s alarm clock (birds chirping). Enjoy breakfast while looking out over a colorful canyon, meadow or stream, as you breathe in the fresh air and notice your shoulders relaxing as tension melts away. Remember to pack your camera or leave enough storage on your phone, so you can take photos of your scenic stops.
An RV Trip Gives You Quality Time With Loved Ones
Spending quality time with your family or partner might be the most important thing you can do to maintain a strong bond. Spending time together gives you the chance to share stories and knowledge, and build a closer, more enduring relationship. Your presence gives your loved ones a sense of self-worth and belonging, and you’ll provide them with moments they’ll remember and treasure for the rest of their lives.
An RV Trip Will Show You How To Make Do With Less
While an RV road trip does enable you to bring along gear and your favorite items, space is still limited — you can’t bring everything. RVing will force you to focus on what’s most important to you, and while you’re on the road, you may realize you don’t really need that gadget or gear you left at home because you barely use it anyway. This may inspire you to declutter when you get home, sell off what you no longer want or need, and create new space.
RVing Eliminates The Downsides Of Travel
When you take an RV road trip you won’t have to deal with flight delays, long lineups, crying babies on long flights, and lost luggage. That means you’ll be in a more relaxed state at the start of your trip — notice when you go on vacation it usually takes a couple of days before you feel like you can fully exhale? Take an RV road trip and notice the difference from Day 1.
An RV Trip Fosters Connection
There’s no better way to unplug and hit the reset button than taking a trip. When that trip happens to involve an RV road trip, you’ll discover all kinds of connections you’ll make: with your family or partner, with nature, with new destinations, people, and experiences, and even with yourself — you might gain perspective on your day-to-day life, realize what truly matters, and get inspired to embark on a new project or make a change.
An RV Campground For Your Stops
When you start planning your RV road trip, you may wonder where you’re going to be able to park it at night. The answer is an RV campground. These campgrounds are great because they let kids run around, roam freely, and burn off energy.
You can also have fun at an RV campground yourself, by fishing or hiking a trail! Then at night, you can play board games, or make smores together. There’s no screen time here, only another opportunity to relax and connect.
