Image110. Travel at Your Own Pace

When traveling in a RV or camper, you have the ability to go wherever you like and whenever you wish. Go ahead and take an extra day at a campsite you really like. You’ll never have to deal with early checkout times again. Also, no one will judge you if you decide to sleep in until 11:00AM. You’ve earned it.

9. Never Lose Your Luggage Again or Pay a Checked Bag Fee

There are many things that can cause a lot of stress when traveling by plane. Lose your luggage and your trip is likely ruined. You’ll never be confined to only taking one bag when you travel in your RV. Checked bag fees will never be an issue again when traveling in an RV. You will also never have to deal with TSA ever again.

8. See the Country

When you travel to Florida by plane you only see the state of Florida. Travel to that same destination by RV and you have the ability to explore the wonders of not only Florida, but every state in between. Road trips are a great way to experience the country and there is no better way to do a road trip that in your very own camper or RV.

Camping Dog7. Bring Your Pet on Vacation

Your pet a part of the family too! You should not be forced to leave them at home or at a kennel when taking a family vacation. You wouldn’t leave Mom or your brother Joey at home would you? The majority of campgrounds are pet friendly and you can bring the dog or cat along for the trip in the camper.

6. When Have You Ever Met the People Staying in a Neighboring Hotel Room?

It’s estimated that only 1 in 5 people could name more than one of their direct neighbors where they currently live. It’s even more unlikely that you will meet and interact with the people staying in the same hotel as you. However, there is something about the outdoors and campfires that bring people together. The average stay at a campground is 4.6 days which allows people to feel more comfortable and meet the neighboring families over the course of the stay.

5. Take the Road Less Traveled

People rarely venture out farther than a few miles from the hotel or the airport. In an RV, you can take a detour and experience many things others will miss while traveling. There are only a few hundred airports with regularly scheduled flights. However, there are over 15,000 campgrounds around the United States. You’ll never be limited by your vacation possibilities any more.

Two pieces of honey sweetened, thin cookie-crackers with a melted, sugary marshmallow and milk chocolate piece in between is like a small piece of heaven. Eating the s’more is only half the fun. First you have to find a large enough stick for roasting, followed by precision rotation of the stick; just enough to brown the edges of the marshmallow without starting it on fire. Sound easy? Just try it for yourself.

3. The Stars

If you live in a big city or close to one, you likely rarely see what a night sky truly looks like. When secluded in a rural area and away from lights, the sky is absolutely amazing. That star you saw back home and originally thought was the North Star, turned out actually to be the planet Mars. The stars light up and you are able to not only see stars and constellations, but the Milky Way galaxy. Sure your view of the pool or beach may be nice, but nothing will beat this sight. Grab a book or download an app and enjoy the sky like you never have before.

2. Mistakes Are Funny When You Are Camping

Traveling at your own pace has many advantages. You aren’t forced to be certain places at certain times, or leave at a certain time like with hotels and airports. When RV camping, you don’t have to feel rushed, so mistakes are brushed off as not that big of a deal. If you miss your plane or bad weather halts air traffic, it is highly unlikely that you will still be in a good mood.

Sometimes the best reason to do something is simply because you haven’t done it before. At the top of many peoples’ to-do list is to try new things. Well, if you haven’t taken your family out camping in an RV, this would definitely fall into that category. If you have gone RV camping before, what are you waiting for? Go out and buy an RV or campier. We’ve made it easy to buy one at Carsforsale.com.
