of Baby Boomers retiring or about to retire, the advantages of RV
vacation and holiday planning are becoming more and more evident.
With over 16,000
campgrounds & resorts nationwide, RVers are free to hit
America's highways and back roads for quick getaways or for months
at a time.
The convenience of traveling with pets, the chance to meet new friends wherever you go - plus great flexibility - are just some of the advantages of RVing.
RVs can be intimidating to the newbie, but veterans swear by their maneuverability and ease of RV operation. Even accounting for current fuel costs, (RV's typically only get 6-8 miles to the gallon) many RVer's say it still beats flying - or waiting around an airport for hours.
Typical RVers run the gamut
fans heading for a big race to camping or boating
enthusiasts heading for the shore with a motorboat in tow. There also is nothing better than a roomy RV for an extended summer road trip among larger families.
