Still Looking For a Summer Getaway Option? Look again at RV'ing!

Our buddy, Brian, pulled off prepping for an RV getaway 'cross country with his family in just 3 days!! It's not too late to check out some summer fun options that are also safe options that help you #stayathome - at least virtually. :)  And, of course, when renting, especially privately, make sure to ask about their cleaning protocols — and in any case, bring along some sanitary wipes.

Pricing depends on the size of the vehicle you’re renting, the length of the trip and the time of year you’re traveling.  On average, you can expect to pay $45-$250 per night.
You can travel, sleep, and eat in the same self-contained environment, connect with nature and discover lesser-known locations with limited contact with others.  And a lot of your comforts of home can come with you while on vacay. If you’re hankering to take a road trip without the risk of walking into and out of hotel rooms, restaurants, and public restrooms, RVing allows you to bring your own accommodations along for the ride.
It can also be a safer way to visit friends and family …… you can have a social distance dinner and park in their driveway or street for a night or two..they don’t have to kick their kids out of their bedrooms to make room for you. :)
And depending on the rental company, you can have your pets traveling with you- so you don’t have to pay boarding fees and they can enjoy the sights with you- and they have a safe place to stay during the day when you’re out and about- AS Long as you follow guidelines to keep them VERY COOL And with plentiful access to water.

TIP: RVs generally need to be driven slower than cars, so a trip may take longer than your favorite map app estimates.

To up-level your glamping experience by staying in one general vicinity not too relatively far from home. - like in your home state or just a 2-5 hour drive away. Less driving, fuel and mileage, you still get away and, like a cruise or a resort, you have the same place to sleep in and come back to each night.

We FIRST recommend calling your local and regional RV Sales Lots and find out if they have any rental and/or RV Relocator options.
