Many people love driving. Maybe it’s the wind blowing through your hair or being in control of your own destiny. Perhaps it’s the endless potential of being your own pilot, not being dictated to by a fixed deal holiday where you follow cattle like through airport, connecting bus, and your final landing site, the hotel complex, where you can check in but you’ll probably not leave, at least for a week.
Driving an RV is a different story. For one thing, it’s a good investment. You no longer have to worry about hotels, and there are plenty of guides to tell you where you can park in different countries. Most places in the USA and Europe have a whole lot of choice for where to set up camp for the night, with great facilities to rival the best beach side hotels, and the added advantage that you can stay as long or as short a time as you want.
If you have a restless spirit and a thirst for adventure, but combine it with needing a little comfort and security, the RV lifestyle is ideal. If you love to drive, like many people do, it’s even better. You’d much rather head across the country on your own pace of life with your family beside you, chatting or in companionable silence, than sit cramped up on a plane with screaming kids and nasty air-conditioning that will probably make you ill.
When you have been on conventional holidays, and there’s a lot to be said for relaxing poolside and catching up with reading, or propping up the bar in the evenings, but if this is your bag, you can still do all that from an RV if you choose the right campsites, and you can explore so much more. Many people love their RV and would never go on a package trip again. Once you’ve tried it there’s no going back.
