There are beautiful places to stop with an RV, get out, and look at America.
In a fast-paced and constantly changing cultural climate, people tend to neglect the slow, precious moments of our life and the world surrounding us. We overflow our suitcases, travel by planes and cruises, hunt for the perfect Airbnb and, in the midst of all the chaos, forget to stop and breathe.
Traveling, no matter where you go, should be a relaxing and enjoyable experience. Yet, often, it demands preparation that can overwhelm you to the point of stress, and only stress.
Consider an alternative: a method of traveling that allows you to essentially take your home on-the-go, where you can set off to your own destinations at your own time, indulge in luxurious comfort, and stop when you want to appreciate the place you’re in.
RVs could be just what you’re looking for.
Recreational vehicle (RV) traveling has not always had a luxurious connotation in the past. When you think of high-end traveling, you may first picture lavish jets and yachts. But now, high-end RV traveling is becoming a more accessible, practical, and desired way to travel.
Elizabeth de Quillacq, expert traveler and founder of travel advising company Souvenir & Far, refers to RV travel as a new and unique way to go on vacation. It offers the best characteristics of its alternatives– the ability to move destinations like a cruise, setting up a fire in the woods like a regular camping adventure, and bringing the sheets and towels that you want, unlike any hotel experience.
More than that, RV traveling has additional pleasures to make taking time off that much more convenient. You could tow your car along with the RV, store some bikes to go cycling in different locations, or even set up a work-from-home area with all of the equipment you may need. And if you’re looking for a more productive way to travel for business, an RV could offer all of that and more.
But it’s hard to plan all of this on your own— so, where do you start? We have some ideas.
Picking the RV
First and foremost, you have to pick the right RV. James Buck, owner of Premier Luxury RVs, shared some things to keep in mind: the amount of people residing in the vehicle, your typical lifestyle, storage needed, et cetera. You can even contemplate the option of hiring your own driver to make traveling that much more convenient. Once you have the answer to these questions, you will have a better idea of what vehicle will best fit your travel needs.
Planning The Trip
To maximize the opportunities that your trip can offer, it’s best to sit down and plan beforehand. If you’re unsure of how to go about it, consider talking to an adviser such as de Quilliac. Like her, an adviser could help guide you through the details of it all: personal interests, goals for the trip, any possible complications, likes and dislikes, etc.
“My favorite part is really getting into the nitty-gritty of what makes them happy, and finding those special little treasures along the way,” said de Quilliac. “There are a lot of things on an RV trip to see that you wouldn’t ever plan a regular vacation around. Your opportunity to see a lot more unique and off the beaten path types of activities or sights is just so much more when you go on these RV road trips.”
If you look to rent an RV for corporate and business trips, visualize how the RV can fit into making the experience that much more convenient.
Much more can fit in an RV than what can in a regular suitcase. Start off with the basics: personal items, clothing and linens, toiletries, and technology. Cooking supplies can be brought along and stored in the RV’s drawer spaces, and your favorite food essentials could be stowed away in refrigerators and cabinets.
Keep what you plan to do in mind, and prepare whatever you will need. If you plan on setting up at a campsite, think of stashing camping chairs and marshmallows. Bikes can be put in RVs if you want to stretch your legs and get some fresh air. Fishing rods, cornhole, other sporting equipment– there are so many more possibilities when traveling in an RV.
Or, if you are renting from a company like Premier Luxury RVs, you don’t even have to worry about forgetting anything, as a good portion of the amenities are provided for you, including fresh sheets and streaming services.
Most importantly— enjoy the journey, because it’s all about you. It’s why luxury RVs are the perfect choice for your travels. Allow yourself to relax and spend time the way you want to in a space with all of your needs.
“All the way up to Bar Harbor, Maine, all the way down to the Florida Keys,” said Buck. “There are beautiful places to stop with an RV, get out, and look at America.”
