Camping in an RV
Camping In a RV - A Good Vacation Option For Your Family
By Alan Wiener
Have you ever been camping in an RV? According to the RVIA (Recreation Vehicle Industry Association) almost one in 12 vehicle owning households in the U.S. can answer yes to this question. If you answered "No" to this question, then stick around, this article is meant for you.
If you are like most people you lead a very hectic life. You feel like you are working harder now than you ever have in your life. The end result is you have less leisure time to spend with your family. So, once it is time for your vacation you are ready to get away from it all, relax and spend quality time with your family.
Going camping in an RV is an option you should consider for your next vacation. The reason is simple, it will allow you to slow down and unwind. When you go RVing you don't have to worry about missing a flight, losing your luggage or renting a car. You do not even have to worry about unpacking your luggage as everything you need is already in the RV
Our family has been enjoying the RV lifestyle for over 35 years. Six RVs later we are still enjoying every RV adventure we go on now, as if it were our first trip. Today we have the advantage of taking our grandkids camping with us, and yes, even our three grown children still love tagging along.
Don't get me wrong; we have gone on vacations where we flew to our destinations because of time constraints. We have even flown over the Grand Canyon a couple of times on commercial airliners. The pilots were always kind enough to point out, that if we looked out the windows, we could see the Grand Canyon. I have to admit it looked pretty good from 35,000 feet. But it wasn't until we actually drove an RV into the Grand Canyon National Park and looked over the rim and saw it from ground level, that we realized its true grandeur.
An RV is a vacation home on wheels. One day you are in the mountains; the next day you could be at the beach. Try that with a vacation home. RVs come in all shapes and sizes. If you are looking for accommodations similar to some of the best hotel suites in the world you may want to look at a Class A motorhome or fifth wheel trailer. If you want a more rustic experience, you might want to look at a Tent Trailer.
Regardless of which type of RV you choose, you may find that vacationing in an RV provides more time to relax and bond with your family. Getting to your destination is half the fun while RVing. You will be surprised by some of the interesting places you run into along the way. Seeing all of this at ground level makes a difference too.
Traveling in an RV is like no other vacation experience you will ever have. I guarantee that the family memories you create while RVing will last you a lifetime. The beauty of RVing is that you are directly in charge of your travel itinerary. You can stay where you want for as long as you want and leave when you want. Try doing that on a traditional vacation.
Go for it!
