RV Trends And Roof Leaks
We love to see how other people live, especially away from huge metropolitan areas - and where there are few if any motels, convention centers, and restaurants. This world has vast reaches of beautiful farmland, spectacular mountains, forests, grasslands, lakes, rivers, etc.... We can easily refuse to stay in places that have rules we think are idiotic, and if we are assigned to a site with an obnoxious neighbor, it is not the end of the happy hour… we can move.
If you have kids, you probably take an annual family vacation. However, between expensive hotel rooms, dining out and pricey amusement parks, family vacations can cost a small fortune. One solution to high priced vacations is investing in an rubber coating. Once thought to be vacation travel mode of senior citizens, more and more families with young children are purchasing RV's or tow-behind campers, instead of tickets to Disney. Even with gas prices rocketing, camping with an RV is still cheaper than staying at many resorts and hotels.
On an RV/camping trip, families are not faced with the interruptions of routine home life, yet they have the comforts of home. RV'ing families are able to enjoy each other's company and kids are free to be themselves, without their own set of distractions like piano lessons, soccer practice or homework. RV'ing means every weekend can be a mini-vacation, allowing quick getaways with minimal preparation and planning.
Many parents also supplement their children's learning during their RV travels, and if it's fun, the children won't object. The Campfire Canvass found that 43% of families cite visiting an historic location for educational purposes. Science and nature centers, zoos and museums were also frequently mentioned.
There are numerous benefits of RV camping. Prices of campgrounds are far less than that of most hotels. You can stay a month at a campground for what you would pay for a weekend at some hotels. In addition, there are hundreds of national parks and campgrounds to choose from all across the United States. Some parks have RV restrictions, but many, including, Yosemite, Yellowstone and the White Mountains National Forest in New Hampshire, all have RV accommodations.
