Nearly 25 million Americans will travel in recreation vehicles this spring and summer, heading to the country’s 18,000-plus campgrounds to enjoy the benefits of an active, outdoor lifestyle with family and friends, according to the latest survey of RV owners by Go RVing and Cvent.
The annual survey finds that 88 percent of RV owners plan to use their RVs as much or more than they did last year. Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day are the most popular trip times, with Father’s Day RV outings also popular. This Memorial Day holiday weekend, nearly six million RVs and 15 million people are expected to be on the road.
“RVing is more popular than ever and the market remains hot as younger and more diverse people learn how RVing can fit their lifestyles,” said RV Industry Association president Frank Hugelmeyer. “RVs offer unparalleled flexibility to enjoy many different kinds of vacations and outdoor recreation activities. Whatever the activity, RVs are a comfortable and convenient way to escape stress and spend time with friends and loved ones — without breaking the budget.”
The online survey of 426 RV owners was conducted by RVIA and Cvent and has a margin of error of 4.7 percent.
