Six Advantages of RV Travel


Family Togetherness: With all the hustle and bustle going on in the average family, there’s rarely a time that everyone is together in the same place, at the same time. Sometimes a family needs time to slow down and share some special moments with one another. Being together on a new adventure is a priceless way to go about it. Activities like exploring nature, watching stars in a clear sky, or sitting around the campfire telling stories and roasting marshmallows create memories that will last a lifetime.

Allows Flexibility: When you’re in an RV, you have complete control of your schedule, or lack thereof. You can go where you want, when you want, and you can stop along the way as many times as your heart desires. In fact, you can change your itinerary at any moment, as you see fit. There are no hotel checkouts, restaurant reservations, or planes to catch. It’s just relaxing and “playing it by ear.” That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t plan, but plans can always change when you’re in control.

Let Go of Society: In today’s world, we seem to always be looking at a screen of some sort, be it phones, computers or tablets. You may be flabbergasted to find out how relaxing it can be to simply unplug; take a break from your electronics. Don’t worry, the world will keep spinning if you don’t check your email, or text your friends, or post where you are and what you’re doing on your favorite social website.

Lots of Learning: Kids love to learn … when the learning is fun. Not only can nature be explored in depth, but dotted around our nation are many museums, presidential libraries, national parks and monuments, geographical formations, forests, ocean-side fun and so much more. Whether it’s their intention or not, our kiddos (and us) learn a great deal when we travel. In addition, we gain a much greater appreciation for Mother Nature’s creations.

Save Bunches of Money: Research has revealed that by traveling in a motorhome, a family can save as much as 78% of what they’d spend on traditional travel. While the price of gas is usually high, it pales in comparison to paying for airfare, renting hotel rooms, always eating out, and renting cars when you get to your destination. If your hearts aren’t set on a particular RV park, you can even save more money by camping boondock-style, whether in the mountains, on the beach, or even in a Wal-Mart parking lot.

It’s So Convenient: Can you imagine taking a trip, and not having to worry about restricting your luggage, being able to take your games, your bikes, and even your four-legged family members? When you are literally traveling in your house, you have all the conveniences of home with you! Each Cruise America rental RV comes with a whole package of entertainment. On schedule for next month is unlimited star gazing, all the birdwatching you want, the ability to throw your alarm clock away and hours of storytelling around a crackling campfire.

One thing is for sure: No matter where you go, or how you get there, the fact that traveling brings family members closer and creates memories that are timeless, is worth more than all the gold you could carry in a Cruise America rental motorhome! And by the way, with our extra storage compartments—that’s a whole lot of gold!
