National Geographic Is Picking Up What We Knew All Along
Nat Geo Proclaims 2020 as the Year of The Camper. We couldn’t agree more. RVing and Camping Are the Great American Vacation.
In fact, the rise of the RV has been steadily growing for a few decades. RV ownership has reached record levels – More than nine million households now own an RV – the highest level ever recorded – a 16% increase since 2001 and a 64% gain since 1980 according to a study done by RV Industry Association (RVIA).
Trends in population and demographics also favor long-term RV market growth. RV buyers aged 35-54 are the largest segment of RV owners, according to the 2011 University of Michigan study of RV consumers commissioned by the RVIA.

Renting an RV Is The Great American Vacation
Remember the days when friends and family gathered together for special occasions and holidays? We weren’t sitting across the table at dinner more consumed about what was on the screen of our phone than the conversation with the person across from us.
There is something romantic, nostalgic about RVing in the gorgeous American countryside. Hiking a trail, playing in the natural, pure waters of a lake or shore of an ocean, feeling the warmth of a campfire, the smells of fresh nature air, the taste of cowboy food and, of course the sharing of stories and strengthening of bonds among friends.
While there is a place for hotels and resorts, they just can’t hold a candle to a vacation in an RV and outdoor toys.
Let’s face it. RVs are a fantastic way to enjoy our vacations with families, while still adhering to social/physical distancing policies that are in place for the foreseeable future. No matter here you stand on the issue, we can”t deny the decrease in willingness to stay at a hotel or resort. We see public Amusement centers and Major Attractions still shut down to some degree and various closures being on and off again that is creating uncertainty in other vacation options.
