lately, as more and more people discover the high level of
freedom, and low level of cost, that an RV vacation can provide.

stays continues to rise, many people are discovering the
convenience of taking their hotel room with them wherever they
The attraction of a recreational vehicle, of course, is that it
provides the budget traveler with the freedom to go where he or
she wants, whenever they want to go there. An RV frees the
traveler on a budget from rigid schedules, lines at airport
security, restrictions on luggage, and so much more. And with
over 15,000 RV parks and campgrounds dotting the country, there
is bound to be one wherever you want to go.
And many RV's have all the amenities of home, including living
rooms, bedrooms, kitchens and bathrooms. Many RV's also have
rooms that slide out to provide even more living space when the
vehicle is parked.

get the biggest bang for their travel buck. Some of our favorite
tips for a low cost and hassle free RV trip include:
Ø Hit the web for tons of free information on living the RV
lifestyle and keeping costs under control. There are a great
many web sites and newsgroups dedicated to recreational
vehicles, and they can provide valuable tips for those
newcomers. Ø Try renting an RV before you buy one. The purchase
of a recreational vehicle is a big decision, and one that is
likely to have a major impact on your lifestyle, especially on
how you vacation. With the average RV costing as much as the
average house did a couple of decades ago, it is important to
know that an RV is the right decision before taking the plunge.
There are a number of places that rent RV's, and these rental
agencies can provide a low cost alternative to RV ownership, or
a way to "try it before you buy it". - Do your research. If you
do decide to buy an RV, be sure to research the buyer's guides,
and read the reviews on the internet. Doing so will allow you to
get the most RV for your money. - Visit a couple of RV dealers,
and attend an RV show. RV shows are great ways to see a wide
range of models quickly, and it is often possible to strike some
very good deals at these events. - Do the math to be sure an RV
is right for you. An RV makes sense for a great many people,
particularly families traveling together. RV travel can be
significantly less costly than travel by car or plane. Fees for
campgrounds are considerably lower than hotel room rates, and
this can really trim the travel budget. - Be sure to inset in a
quality guide to RV campgrounds. Knowing where the campgrounds
are, and having good directions for getting there, will save you
lots of hassle, as well as gas money.
