If you and your family have a travel bug, you know that there are so many amazing sites to see in this country of ours. From the red rocks of Utah and Colorado, to whale watching in the PNW, to the places of our country’s founding on the East Coast, there’s so much to take in!
If you’ve never traveled by RV, it’s an investment worth considering! Here we will quickly lay out our five top reasons for traveling with a trailer and RV Storage Junction City Kansas.
It’s more affordable!
Don’t close the article yet–we know what you’re thinking. RV’s are expensive! Gas is expensive! You’re right–in the beginning, it is a big investment. But, once you start totaling up plane tickets, gas, hotel rooms, eating out, and pet boarding for every trip you may want to take over the next 10-15 years, suddenly an RV seems like a better investment, especially once considering the next few reasons.
The RVIA (Recreational Vehicle Industry Association) has found that vacationing by RV is 23-59% cheaper than traveling by air or car. This could allow you to double the amount of time you spend traveling during the year, compared to the traditional vacations spent in hotel rooms and eating in restaurants.
It feels like home!
This is probably one of my favorite reasons for traveling by RV–no more dirty hotel rooms, cramped sitting spaces for your morning coffee, and kids not sleeping in a “new” space. In the RV, your sheets, towels, bathroom, kitchen, and couches are all yours–clean, familiar, and cozy. It truly becomes a home away from home that you can take anywhere–to see any part of the country!
Hello, home-cooked meals!
Another amazing reason to travel by RV–the ability to bring along food in the fridge and pantry, and cook for yourself when desired. This is one of the huge money-saving aspects of RV travel, and is also a great option for those with large families, where even a trip to McDonalds can be over $50, and those with health concerns who need more control over their food.
Avoid the touristy parts
When you travel by RV, you truly get to see parts of the country that only the locals see–not only do you get to see them, but often you can immerse yourself in the local culture because of your ability to stay as long as you want, where ever you want. If you pull a trailer, you will also have the ability to unhook and have a car to drive where ever you want to explore!
Bring the pets along!
The ability to bring along your dogs and cats is another huge reason to travel by RV, especially if you’re planning on doing lots of travel over the years. Pet boarding can be expensive, and it’s hard to leave your pet in a stressful environment while you try to enjoy a vacation! Instead, they can enjoy all the sites and smells of the new places from their cozy home on wheels.
