Ever wanted to just pack up and hit the road?
We’ve all been there. Sometimes the day-to-day grind can be exhausting, both physically and mentally.
One of the fabulous things about owning a class B motorhome or RV is the ability to make a mini-vacation out of just about any weekend! Those of us who own motorhomes and RVs recognize the need to break out of the routine.
Many people worry about maintenance or costly upkeep with buying a class B van. However, owning a motorhome is far more affordable than you may think and the maintenance can be relatively low.
If you or your family are considering purchasing a recreational vehicle or travel van, take a peek at the list below of some of the biggest lifestyle benefits.
Owning a class B motorhome or RV gives you significant flexibility when planning vacations. Camping, visiting amusement parks, traveling to see friends and relatives, traveling with pets, small children and the elderly — all are far easier by travel van than plane.
You can stop whenever, wherever and change the destination or length of your stay at any time.
These days, it’s nearly impossible to get some time away from your devices. Laptops, iPads, email, social-media, the news and cell phones can become overwhelming. Owning a motorhome is a great way to make a commitment to step away, breathe and take a break from the non-stop notifications of your gadgets.
Most Americans these days are vitamin D deficient. This means we’re spending far too much time indoors. When you own a motorhome or RV, you have the ability to go out and explore the great outdoors.
Physically, getting outdoors has many benefits. Studies have shown that spending time outside greatly reduces stress, anxiety and depression.
Plus, with a motorhome or campervan there are many opportunities for sports enthusiasts such as mountain bikers, runners, hunters, fishermen, boaters, hikers, climbers and kayakers to go out and enjoy their favorite activities with all their gear.
The motorhome and RV lifestyle is relaxing in its simplicity. When you pack up for an RV trip, you know you can leave all the bells and whistles at home for a few days. Traveling by motorhome is great because activities such as cooking, sitting by a campfire, playing cards and sharing stories become so entertaining.
Trips in a class B motorhome or travel van are great for catching up with friends and family members. Most of us are so busy these days that it’s sometimes hard to find the time to spend time with the people who matter to you most. Traveling by motorhome is a great way to bond and make some really special lifelong memories.
Whether you’re traveling with friends or family, taking a trip in a campervan is a team effort. Taking shifts driving, packing, unpacking, planning meals and activities usually involve the whole crew. The camaraderie gained by RV travel is really special.
On average, RV travel is 78% less expensive than other types of trips. Not only do you save on lodging, but you also won’t have to worry about eating out every meal (which can become quite costly). While fuel may be your biggest expense, it’s no comparison to expensive plane tickets and hotel rooms.
Traveling by motorhome is a fantastic way to learn about geography, history and nature. For instance, plan an RV trip to the California Missions to learn about the history of the state. Or consider dropping by the Monterey Bay Aquarium and learn about sea-life. How about a visit to the four-corners and have the ability to stand in four different states all at once?
Both children and adults can learn a lot from recreational vehicle travel.
Traveling in your class B motorhome or RV means access to restrooms, snacks and opportunities to rest at any time. The airlines can keep their peanuts and pretzels, thank you very much.
While this is contrary to unplugging from technology, conversion vans, motorhomes and RVs usually come equipped with television and DVD systems. This can be really handy if traveling with small children and you need an easy distraction. By the time you get to camp or your destination, the trip will have felt like a breeze.
No more, “Are we there yet?” from the backseat.
