Reason # 1: Connect With Nature

A dose of nature does wonders for one’s wellbeing. Anyone who has ever stepped foot in the forest or dipped a toe in a lake or creek likely knows this, but nature is a happy-maker.

The world at your doorstep.

The calming power of the ocean. The presence of a towering forest. The expansiveness of the desert. The carving ridges of a mountain range. With an RV, the whole world is right outside your front door, ready to be explored.

Reason # 2: Join a Community

When you RV, you’re never alone.

From families to couples to solo travelers, all RVers have one thing in common: an urge to see the world on their own terms. When you pull into a campground or RV park, you know you’ll be surrounded by likeminded people who make up one of the most tight-knit communities around.

RV memberships and clubs provide numerous services including a community for RVers. One criteria for selecting an RV club is for cost savings and discounts on various RV parks. The discounts can vary from 10 to 50 percent and have restrictions on when they are valid. The choice of RV clubs also depends on the location of the campgrounds where the discounts are available and your current and future travel plans.

Reason # 3: Travel With Comfort

Your home comes with you.

A comfortable bed. A full kitchen. A restroom. A shower. An entertainment center. And most importantly, your family. In an RV, it’s all with you. Limitations and barriers have had been lifted. And the open road is yours for the taking.

Your family, including those members with four legs, is often the most important part of any vacation. And when you RV, you can tailor your adventures to everyone—from where you go to how and where you sleep to how you keep everyone active and entertained.

Leaving home can be scary for some pets, but with some well-organized preparation RV travel can be safe and comfortable for everyone—human and canine alike.

RVing lets you make every adventure completely your own. It’s your schedule, your wish list, your road map, and your world to explore.

Hike, bike, climb, kayak, ride horses, swim, and make the world your playground.

Reason # 4: Family Togetherness

Adventures in family bonding

Nothing bonds families together like being together. Breathing the same air. Seeing the same sunrises and sunsets. Bringing on landscapes and campfire stories, not TV shows. RVing brings you closer to natural beauty. And to those you love.

Reason # 5: Retire in Style

Your time. Your way.

Make the road your new home.

Best estimates say 750,000 to one million retirees call their RV home—and the ranks are growing.

Go anywhere you want. Stay as long as you like. The possibilities are endless and the choices are all yours. So whether you become a full-time RVer, a snowbird, or simply travel from time to time, RVing is a great way to design your own life and your own adventures.

Worth Pondering…

No matter where we go in our motorhome, that sense of independence is satisfying. We have our own facilities, from comfortable bed to a fridge full of our favorite foods. We set the thermostat the way we like it and go to bed and get up in our usual routine.
