Driving to Freedom
Road trips are for the real thrill-seekers! Some people are ditching air travel and exploring more adventurous options on the road.
The fun with RVing is there are so many possibilities. RVs come in lots of sizes, like any great vacation. But unlike any vacation, you can buy a used RV! One convenience of investing in an RV is basic accommodation. Having a place to sleep is one of the major necessities when planning any vacation. Typically, the first thing people consider is where to books hotel reservations. They consider if they are going to stay in a hotel or rent a house. There is location. There is pricing. There are always reviews. But what if those problems did not exist for every vacation? After the initial investment of buying an RV, there would be no need for a hotel. Without spending hundreds to thousands of dollars on sleeping accommodations, there is more money for fun.
The benefits of having an RV are numerous, but there are responsibilities that come with freedom. Nothing is that easy! Fueling an RV can be one major expense in ownership. Assuming that an RV holds up to 150 gallons of gas, at $2.50 it could take up to $375 to fill an RV. When you factor in cost and distance, you would still save hundreds of dollars as opposed to buying a hotel for the weekend. Aside from gas expenditures, another major consideration in RV ownership is parking. Ideally, there is a Walmart everywhere to make a pit stop, but what about long term rest stops? There is a rise of RV parks across the nation. Most RV parks provide essentials like showers and internet connections. They also provide the opportunity to meet other families with similar journeys in mind. That provides a duality that leads back to the fun in owning an RV!
Any great vacation has pros and cons. There are many things to consider and somehow, money can be the main decider of the next vacation. Investing in an RV can alleviate some of the stress of vacation planning where finances are concerned. Vacation is supposed to be about fun, freedom, and adventure. Owning an RV is all those in one!
