2020 has not been a typical year for travel. With border restrictions and safety protocols in place, air travel is down significantly. However, people still have a desire to get out and see the world beyond their home. Here are a few reasons why RV travel is a great option for adventure in 2020!
Safety. First and foremost, RV travel allows you to take a family vacation in one of the safest ways possible. Since you are essentially putting a mini version of your home on wheels and taking it with you, you can set your own safety standards. First of all, you have more space to bring along any cleaning or disinfecting products you’ll need for when you encounter public spaces. You are also able to control the environment where you are living, sleeping, and preparing food which will help keep your space protected.
It’s About the Journey. Traveling to densely populated big cities is probably not the safest option in 2020, but outdoor adventures at local, state and national parks are a great idea. One way to visit these places is by staying at campgrounds near the parks and an RV is an excellent way to do that. Having an RV will allow you to make stops and explore on the way to your destination. As an added bonus, the RV will make your journey more comfortable!
Flexibility. If you don’t want to be limited by the times of hotel check-in and check-out, or you want the flexibility of planning your trip as you go, then an RV is the perfect way to adventure. Your car and your accommodations have all been rolled into one with an RV so you can plan as you go.
Test it Out. Setting off on an RV adventure in 2020 is a great way to test it out and see if it’s a good fit for you. Purchasing an RV is a really big financial investment that you don’t want to make until you’ve tried it out. So use 2020 as an opportunity to test out RV travel and see what works well for your family and what doesn’t. You can also talk to people along the way, at campgrounds and gas stations, to do your research about the best RV options. This way if you are ready to continue your RV adventures into 2021, you’ve already done the research!
