Vacationing during Covid-19 is very different. So many vacations were canceled early; some because of safety concerns, but still others because of lost income. During this time, many across the country have turned to camping and RV’ing as a safe and affordable alternative - and tons of friends and colleagues have reached out to me to ask for advice.
So tuck yourselves in for a podcast all about vacationing by RV. I’m affectionately calling this episode - TAKE YOUR DAMN VACATION. On today’s episode, I’ll share our family history of RVing, my 3 key messages about traveling the states in a camper, answer some of the most frequently asked questions about travel by RV.
But above all, I totally want to encourage you to take your vacation. Only 44 percent of American women use all of their annually allotted vacation time, compared with 48 percent of men according to Project Time Off. Whatever you decide to do for vacation, DO IT SAFELY. For real. Mask up. Wash your hands. And take every precaution possible to stay healthy.
What I’m talking about:
According to RV Industry Association, RV sales in some areas during spring of 2020 have sped up 170 percent over the same time period last year. There’s a huge interest in turning to the road and national parks
Our family has been to 47 of the 48 lower states, Canada, and 26 national parks (and tons more other monuments, forests, etc.) in our RV. We probably have close to 250 nights in it.
The RV adventure started for our family in 2015 by renting a Class C Rv. By 2017 we purchased a Winnebego Class A for our family and committed to spending our vacations RVing for the next few years.
My key messages about rving as a way of vacationing.
#1 - Really reflect on if you imagine yourself as an RVer.
#2 - Start small.
#3 - Plan in advance. Definitely do your research or reach out to someone to help you plan like my friend Mindy Weber. Mindy specializes in planning road trips with her company Nature Driven Adventures. Totally give her a follow on Instagram.
