Can a RV vacation be economical? A study by a travel research firm, PKF Consulting, found that travelers could save up to 70 percent on overall costs by taking an RV vacation rather than using more common modes of travel, even after factoring in ownership or rental costs.
Airfare, train, and bus costs can be eliminated.
Instead of staying at a hotel, you'll be able to park your RV in a campground, which for the most part are less expensive than hotels.
Rather than eating out at restaurants, you can cook your own meals in the RV's kitchen.
Why take an RV Vacation? The reasons to rent an RV are the same reasons for taking any vacation: to get a break from the daily routine, to be with family and friends, to rest and relax, and to see new places. When renting an RV, there are no flights to catch, no security hassles, and no long lines or lost luggage. When you rent an RV as opposed to traveling by any other form of transportation, you achieve all those goals.
Why Rent? Renting allows you to try various types of RVs and learn from experience which best suits your needs. Perhaps you already know and enjoy the RV lifestyle but aren't ready to purchase. Renting an RV is one the best way to enjoy the RV lifestyle without making a long term purchase commitment. Many people rent RVs for the fun, freedom, and flexibility of taking RV trips to a special event or destination.
Are there advantages to campgrounds vs. hotels? Camping is its own amusement park. Campgrounds are usually set in the woods, near lakes or streams. Campers can hike, fish, bird-watch or simply run around and play tag.
And lastly - Accomodations!!!
Hotel rooms come with beds intended to sleep a certain number of guests. Hotel managers will gladly add a cot to a room with an extra guest, but that cost will be added to your bill. If your family is too big, you will have to get another room. This may mean parents have to split up in order to supervise children. Not so with camping! A campground is ready to receive a large number of camping guests. It's ideal for groups of people or families who all want to be together.
