Why RV?

People who've never tried it might wonder: why RV? What makes owning and traveling in an RV so great?

Firstly, the excitement of traveling to new places is a joy for many retirees. Free of the routine of a regular job, why not get out and see the world? An RV offers many advantages above other means of travel and accommodation. For one, the RV allows tons of room for whoever isn't driving. In a vehicle, everyone is stuck in their seats until you decide to make a stop. In an RV, passengers can move around freely, and even make lunch, while on the road. And if you do decide to stop, the convenience of a built in bathroom and kitchen are hard to beat. You'll save tons of money by making your own meals.

Also, an RV is your own. No staying in hotels where who knows who slept in your bed the night before. An RV has been cleaned by you, and you know where it's been! That provides peace of mind for a lot of people.

Owning an RV allows you to travel at your leisure, choosing where you want to live and what weather you want to experience. Many RVers stay in their home communities for half the year, traveling to warmer climates for the other half of the year. Some people are full timers, and have regular summer and winter destinations. Still others travel with less of a plan, experiencing new places at their whim. This kind of freedom to explore new places and meet new people can really keep you young.
