While growth in the RV industry is not new over the past year, since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, there are record numbers in RV rentals, sales, campground occupancy and just about anything has to do with RVing. Over the past few years, peer-to-peer rentals have gained momentum, making RV rental more widespread. In 2020, largely due to the national media and stories on the Today Show and in various newspapers, magazines and blogs, RVing is now being dubbed as the safest way to travel. Here are a few reasons the RV market, both in sales and rentals is booming:
–RVs are the perfect way to self-quarantine while traveling, eliminating the need for public stops at rest areas to use the bathroom or fast food places for lunch as everything can be stored and prepared on-board.
–RVs are the ultimate self-contained unit and offer a great option for medical professionals and others needing to self-isolate
-While opinions vary, International travel and cruises will not begin rebounding until 2022 or 2023, making cross-country, RV trips or mini-Florida staycations a great alternative for vacationing couples and families.
–RV travel gets you and your family outdoors, making unforgettable memories. We all need to unplug and RVing offers people the opportunity to experience nature and family time. We hear stories all of the time about family bonding while on the road.
- RV travel is a great value – A 2014 Vacation Cost Comparison prepared by PKF Consulting USA showed that a family of four can save 27-62% on vacation costs by traveling in an RV.
- RVs have many uses. While our RV rentals are primarily for vacation travel, RVs are great for tailgating, traveling with pets, transporting people who cannot go on planes, business outings and other leisure activities.
In our 15 years of business, we have seen many changes in the industry, and we adjusted our business model along the way to accommodate the times. We provide the best rental selection of newer RV’s, purchased directly from the manufacturer. Our dedication to maintaining, cleaning and sanitizing the RVs often exceeds our guest’s expectations. Add to that our old-fashioned style of customer service where your family becomes part of our family and it is a win-win situation.
