Why Go RVing?

Retire in style

Savor the pleasures of travel. Make new friends, or connect with old ones. Visit family. Pursue your passions. As our age increases, so too, do our opportunities to experience all that RVing has to offer. Today’s seniors are zestfully on the go, and RVs can take them wherever their hearts desire. Thousands are part-time RV users, weekend and vacation travelers or seasonal “snowbirds.” Thousands more—some estimates go as high as a quarter of a million—live full-time in their RVs.

RV travelers are surrounded by home comforts in units equipped with comfortable living, dining, sleeping and bathroom facilities. Modern kitchens help older RV travelers follow special diets and avoid high-priced restaurants and hotels.

While not everyone can backpack or tent-camp, anyone can enjoy outdoor living at a campground with an RV. With so many RVs from which to choose, from type A motorhomes to truck campers, there are models available to fit every lifestyle and interest. Many campgrounds offer expanded facilities and a variety of activities, such as golf, tennis, tours and social events. The relaxed lifestyle can help add years to your life and zest to those years.

Reconnect with family

Something amazing happens when families spend time together. Bonds are built. Secrets are shared. Passions are pursued. Sometimes the road to a happy family is an actual road. And sometimes, nothing brings a family closer together than taking them far away. RVs can expose you and your family to one miraculous getaway after another. In this age of stressed-out, over-scheduled families, RVing is the perfect way for family members to stay in touch with each other. Nothing quite encourages communication and shared activity like an RV getaway.

Having an RV gives you the ability to reconnect with your family without the logistical hassles. On a whim, you can hop in an RV and spend a weekend with your kids after a hectic week at work. You can bond with your mate. You can make that connection with your teen.

According to a Harris Interactive survey, “Ninety-four percent of parents who own RVs overwhelmingly consider them the best way to travel with children.” Whether it’s a fifth-wheel trailer for you and your spouse, or a mini-motorhome for your entire family, what RVs do best is simple: They help us pursue our passions together.
