Typical travel in 2020 is far different than anyone could have imagined. With the pandemic in full force, family vacations have had to be canceled, airline tickets refunded and gatherings have been limited. According to a digital marketing expert, Larry Muller, who has specialized in marketing for companies in the travel and hospitality industry, the travel industry as a whole has shrunk by nearly 25% due to layoffs and canceled itineraries.
With all the time we've spent being cooped up in a house or apartment, any escape is a necessary one. The trouble is, air travel is basically out of the question. That leaves local trips as the top destinations this summer and into the foreseeable future. Studies have shown that people feel more comfortable and safe in their own cars, so road trips are at an all-time high. When you're relegated to places you can drive to, there's only one clear answer as to how to spend your vacations - inside of an RV.
Here are some of the top reasons why RVs are the latest trend in travel
1. There's an RV for Everyone
Recreational Vehicles (RVs) come in all shapes and sizes. Whether you want a travel trailer, a pop-up tent trailer, an A-frame, a toy hauler, or a motor home, you can find an RV that suits your preferences. On top of that, each trailer comes with its own layout of facilities, beds, and toiletry areas. You can find a compact, 16-foot trailer that fits 2-4 people comfortably, or a 40-foot trailer with two bedrooms and bathrooms, multiple slide outs, and the 60 inch TV.
2. You Can Take The Comforts of Home With You
In today's climate of face masks and hand sanitizer, the thought of staying at a crowded hotel or resort is a bit overwhelming. In order to stay safe, social distancing and barriers seem to be the key. With an RV, you can enjoy the comforts of home while staying safe from the rest of the world. Since most RVs come with a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, dining area, power outlets, and more, you can spend time outdoors without having to "rough it".
If it gets too cold outside, turn on the furnace. If it gets too hot, turn on the AC. Enjoy a cold beverage from the fridge or get the ice cream out of the freezer. And last but not least, enjoy a hot shower after a day of playing hard outside.
3. National Parks and Campgrounds Are Within Reach
Driving your sedan 8 hours to a national park only to stay in a tent that never gets below 100 degrees while getting dirt tracked into your sleeping bag over and over again may not immediately seem like the ideal vacation. With an RV, however, you can enjoy extended stays at National Parks and fully enjoy the beauty and once-in-a-lifetime views you see at these amazing places.
In today's world, having the ability to get out and stay comfortably in campgrounds and RV parks is the best way to travel. Bring the comforts of home with you and enjoy vacations in the outdoors.
