With over 16,000 publicly and privately owned campgrounds currently located in the United States, it is no surprise that camping is still one of the most common leisure activities in the country. In fact, research shows that almost 50% of American campers plan their camping trip at least one month in advance. However, with the typical camping trip destination in the U.S. 191 miles away from the traveler’s home, it can often seem necessary to discard the preferred trip for something more convenient. However, thanks to the variety of recreational vehicles available for sale, from new hybrid campers to used truck campers, traveling and camping have never been easier, more convenient, or more enjoyable.
An estimated 8.5% of all American households own recreational vehicles, a percentage that is expected to increase, as studies show that an estimated 27% of previous RV owners plan to purchase another recreational vehicle in the near future. This is likely because recreational vehicles offer a number of benefits to those who use them: simultaneously providing transportation and temporary living quarters while traveling and camping, RVs allow Americans to travel comfortably and cost-efficiently all year long. Moreover, with the wide variety of recreational vehicles available, including slide on campers, pop up campers, pull behind campers, and more, it is easy to find a model that fits both your budget and your camping needs.
There are currently over 12,000 RV dealers in the United States offering new and used campers for sale. The average age of the customer these businesses serve is 48 years old; however, used truck campers and other forms of recreational vehicles are enjoyed by all ages every year. If you are interested to see how a recreational vehicle could optimize your camping experience, don’t wait: visit an RV dealership or consider renting a camper for your next trip to see if it is right for you!
