10 reasons RVing is the best way to travel — ever

Who doesn’t love a good road trip, especially when it involves traveling in the comfort of an RV? Here are some of the reasons why we love RVing.

    1. Stuck in traffic? No big deal

When you’re in an RV, you have everything you need at all times: bathroom, kitchen, living room complete with sofa and television — so your passengers won’t be too bummed out if you get stuck traffic for a while.

After a long day of outdoor fun, there’s nothing better than sleeping in your own bed and laying your head on your own pillow. No stuffy hotel rooms to worry about, no getting used to a mattress that’s too firm or soft and no wondering whether the sheets are really clean!

Not even the finest five-star hotel can beat a 5 billion-star hotel.


  1. It’s about the journey as much as the destination.


Cliché but true. RVs take road trips to a whole new level.

Being in an RV means being self-sufficient. Big storm knocked out the campground’s power? Not a problem. You have lights that run off of battery power, a gas-powered generator to run your air conditioner, and you probably have a propane heater, water heater, stove and oven. In an RV, the adventure continues, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you.


  1. Free and cheap places to stay


Speaking of being self-sufficient, all of that independence comes in handy when staying in uncharted territory that doesn’t include running water or electric hookups. Looking for free or cheap places to camp? See our post here.

‘Nuff said.


  1. Cooking and dining al fresco


At the end of the day, nothing beats a hot meal cooked over the fire or grill outside your mobile


  1. Pets welcome


That means your furry best friend won’t be left behind!
