One of the many great things about owning a campervan or recreational vehicle is the camaraderie and togetherness you experience when traveling with a group. Motorhomes and conversion vans allow you to easily access some of the country’s greatest attractions! Whether you’re planning your next trip with family or friends, traveling in your campervan offers great bonding opportunities!
If you decide you are serious about your motorhome experience, you may want to consider joining a RV club or travel group. Travel groups and recreational vehicle clubs are all over the country. They are a great way for those who love the campervan lifestyle to meet others with similar interests and passion! RV groups offer so many benefits. Traveling with a group allows you to share experiences, participate in motorhome education seminars and is a fantastic way to socialize!
Traveling in a group is a great way for families, couples and singles to meet and bond with like-minded RV folk! When clubs and rallies get together they often have planned meals and activities. Traveling in a large group can often mean discounts at attractions and restaurants as well. These savings really add up after awhile!
