Is RV Camping For You?

I’ve had daydream after daydream about getting rid of all of my possessions, except what would fit in a camper, and take off. I would love to live a nomadic lifestyle via camper for at least part of my life. However, I have to admit that I should probably start off smaller to find out if RV Camping is right for me, like renting an RV from Campanda.

My parents are RV-ers and they absolutely love it. They’ve mastered both the longer road trips and the weekend getaways and have always raved about having a home-away-from-home. They used to have a larger camper, but they’ve recently gotten a cozier camper perfect for the two of them. The couple of times I’ve hung out in their different campers definitely left  me with an awesome taste for RVing.

5 Benefits of RV Camping

RV Camping allows you to have everything you need in one place. You don’t have to move your suitcase from destination to destination because your whole vehicle is a moving mini-home. It’s always nice not to have to unpack and pack everything back up each night.

You’re less-likely to get homesick. Because your RV will be filled with your belongings and you can cook what you want for meals and bring other things that feel homey (like you’re favorite blanket) you feel like home is the road.

It can be budget-friendly. Especially if you have a smaller RV that requires less gas per mile. Accommodation can be cheaper, especially if you’re traveling with a group in a large camper or in a destination with expensive lodging prices. Plus, meals can be prepared cheaply and easily.

You can come and go as you please. Love a destination? Stay longer without worrying if your hotel has vacancy or not. Campgrounds are generally easy to find unless there’s a major event happening in the area, especially if you’re traveling in shoulder seasons.

You can wake up to a stunning view. Some campgrounds have some of the best views in the country. Who doesn’t want to wake up in the morning to catch a mountain view? Better yet, wake up in the mountains or forest that you’re going to be exploring all day. No commute needed!

Which RV Rental is Right For You?

Everyone has their own taste and own travel style. Luckily, there’s an RV for everyone! Campanda put together this awesome infographic to help you decide which type is right for you. I think I’m super drawn to that camper van option, myself. However, you can find pros and cons to each. Luckily, Campanda has helped to make that decision even easier.

Are you now convinced that you too need to experience RV Travel? If you’re not ready to commit to purchasing your own, consider renting! Ready to purchase? I hope this infographic will help you narrow down what it is you’re looking for in an RV.

    I’ve been dreaming of doing this for a long time. I am always camping with my tent if I have the possibility and I am more than open to new experiences such as RV camping, motorhomes, campervans and campers. Unfortunately they are too expensive for me at this moment and I am traveling by myself anyway. Maybe someday it would be the right timing for this, too.

    I have never been in an RV but I have always wanted to go in one on a road trip across America. Especially at my own pace so I can take everything that I see along the way. Option B Budget- friendly would definitely be the one that I would use as it is ideal for me.

    I’ve dreamed of traveling full time in an RV as well, mainly because I do get homesick, and I would love to be able to cook in a real kitchen, however small.

    We lived in our small camper for 8 months travelling around the UK. Had its challenges…miss it massively though!

    I really want to try RV’ing – my brother & his friend took a US road trip and loved it, but I do get nervous driving sometimes so I need to find a road trip buddy before I do something similar. I love the freedom it brings though!

    We’ve toyed with the idea of RVing for a while now. The jury is still out, but you bring up some valid points! I do really like the idea of still feeling at “home” because of all you belongings being there. That would make it feel very nice!
