“What will you discover when you go RVing? That boredom can’t find you if it doesn’t know where to look. (That sounds GOOD!)
There’s taking a trip from Point A to Point B. And then there’s RVing. Recreation vehicles give you more control,convenience and comfort than other forms of travel. With an RV, you can hit the road more often for longer periods, for less money.
The reasons you go RVing are the same reasons you take any vacation. To get a break from the daily routine. To be with family and friends. To rest. To relax. To see new places. To try new things.
But the difference between RVing and other types of vacations is that RVing allows you to truly achieve all those goals – and more.
With RVing, there are no flights to catch. No security hassles. No long lines or lost luggage. No hauling heavy bags in or out of costly hotel rooms. No expensive, unhealthy food. No strange bedrooms, bathrooms or kitchens.” (This part is most interesting to Liza, since she tends to be a bit of a germaphobe.)
According to a study released by the University of Michigan’s Survey Research Center, the U.S. ownership of recreation vehicles (RVs) has reached record levels in the past couple of years. One in every 12 vehicle owning households in the U.S. owns an RV (amazing!), representing approximately 8 million RV households, a growth of a stunning 58% since 1980.
RV demographics include:
1. Typically RVers travel 4500 miles annually on excursions that total 28 to 35 days annually.
2. Americans in the age group of 35-to-54 year are keener on owning an RV of their own.
3. The typical RV owner is age 49, married, owns a home and has an annual household income of $68,000.”
So we are wondering if we will fit in with these adventure loving pavement travelers? Or if that matters. We wonder if our summer should involve the purchase of an RV? Or with that number of RVs on the roads, maybe a used one? Wondering too about cost of fuel, security… how will I blog?
HOW WILL I BLOG! Hmm. How do I get hi speed access in a mobile RV? I feel a new technology learning curve approaching. This BBB (boomer baby blogger) might have to gear up for starting over with an RV and a road trip. Maybe.
Or maybe I’m just RV dreaming!
