One thing I noticed on our recent RV trip to Maine was the diversity people were now utilizing in order to RV. From a simple act of placing a foam mattress in the back of a car to erecting a tent on top of an SUV roof, RVing today comes in all shapes and sizes. Gone are the traditional trailers or motor homes. RVing has become a very creative sport.
We saw tear drop models that would just barely have room for one adult to sleep in, let alone two. There were A-Framed RVs, pop-up RVs and a super decked out van driven by a solo woman. It was just great to walk around the campground and see all the latest innovations erupting out of the RV industry.
There’s something for everybody. There’s a price point for everyone too. RVing can be as simple as you’d like it or as complicated as you prefer.
We’ve gone through a lot of RVs down throughout our traveling days. We started with a pop-up and as we got older we wanted more and more creature comforts. Like a real queen-sized bed that we can walk around. RVers know what I am talking about. A real bathroom with a real hot shower. A real kitchen that you could actually prepare and cook a meal in. An oven. A microwave. A flat screen TV. A couch that you could put your feet up on at the end of a busy day of hiking. Air conditioning. Heat! An outdoor grill. An outdoor shower. Slide outs. A fridge with a separate freezer. Tons of storage! At 20 feet, our mini-lite is just right!
It took six RVs and forty years before we finally found an RV that suited us just fine. We’ve taken trips over the years that only an RV could make possible. We’ve narrowed our choice locations down to a few favorites that we don’t mind going to over and over again. RVing has come a long way since we first started out back in 1983. We’ve learned a thing or two over the years. And we’ve made friends along the way that are still our friends to this very day.
Once RVing gets inside your blood it’s hard to put it down. It’s a way of life. It’s a way of vacationing. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
