The most popular outdoor recreational activity in the United States is camping. In fact, it is estimated that in 2015, over 40 million happy campers took to the road, and the revenue of campgrounds and RV parks (employing over 45,000 workers) was estimated to be approximately 5.8 billion US dollars! Now that’s a lot of camping!
The fact that so many people love camping is a pretty good indicator that it must be an enjoyable and rewarding experience. It also indicates that it must not be very difficult to do, and that it must be relaxing and stress-free, as people keep going back for more.
While the numbers of people who love to go RVing is staggering, there are still those that don’t move forward with any camping plans because they aren’t familiar with the process; they’re intimidated. They’re not sure what kind of motorhome best suits them, they don’t know where to go, and they aren’t sure what to do once they get there. These are all legitimate concerns, but with a little planning, you’ll find that most of these questions practically answer themselves; especially when you deal with Cruise America.
When it comes to renting an RV from Cruise America, the process is completely easy, and there is not nearly as much to learn as you may be thinking. We employ a staff of travel experts that will walk you through each step of the way, from choosing which model would work best for your family, to familiarizing you with your RV, and the simple procedures that you’ll want to know when you get to your camping spot.
Our class C RVs come in different sizes to accommodate whatever number of travelers are in your group. Our compact models work just right for up to three people, while the large model sleeps up to seven. The intermediary model, which we call our “standard” size, is just right for up to five people. Most RVers will benefit from doing some planning before deciding on a size.
As far as determining where to go; when you’re in an RV, the entire nation is your oyster! You can travel anywhere you desire, and for as long as your schedule allows. It’s like having an up-close view to Mother Nature at her finest. Most every attraction throughout this country of ours has RV parks nearby, if not on site.
If you are more of a “solitary” kind of traveler, you needn’t stay in an RV park; you can always camp boondock-style. That means that you choose the spot you want to camp, no matter how “in-the-middle-of-nowhere” it is, and you don’t have water and electrical supplies to hook up to. That’s okay, because each of our RV rentals is completely self-sufficient! You generate your own power, your waste is stored in tanks and your fresh water supply is even heated. All of the amenities on your motorhome function using propane and generated power. The one caveat, however, is that you must be sure that it’s legal to park where you decide to park.
On the flip side, if you are of a social nature and love to visit with other campers, it’s tough to beat staying in a nice RV park, where there are travelers all around you with common interests and stories of the road. In addition, many of the nicer parks offer things like power, water, dump stations, restrooms, hot showers, barbecue grills, picnic accommodations, supply shops, swimming pools or lakes, fishing equipment for rent, outdoor activities, etc. There are dozens of websites that are dedicated to helping campers locate the best RV park for their needs, so hop online to see what’s out there.
When it boils down to it, it really doesn’t matter where you park your RV; just the fact that you are in a recreational vehicle means that you’re having a great time and making memories with the ones you love.
