BBuy An RV And Hit The Roads For a Journey Of A Thousand Miles...

By Christine Macguire

"The traveler sees what he sees. The tourist sees what he has come to see." For those who love to travel and yet like to feel the warmth and coziness of a house, a recreation vehicle is an ideal choice. With an abundance of outdoor activities, access to quality trails, the welcoming community spirit and a variety of travel options throughout the year, an RV lifestyle is very unique in itself. Think, for a moment, of the benefits that an RV has to offer. It offers a unique home that fully amalgamates your experience into a low cost, homely and comfortable journey.

The US travel industry has reported excellent news for the last two years after accomplishing a complete recovery from the downturn in travel since 2000. Demand was up and US travel expenditures rose by 7.8%. Some 7 million households, or nearly one in 12 U.S. vehicle-owning households, now own an RV. With an estimated 30 million RV enthusiasts nationwide, including RV renters, the annual retail value of RV shipments is now $12 billion, while RV rentals tally $191 million a year. More RVs were shipped in the first six months of 2006 than in any other during the past 33 years.

Growth rates in the RV marketplace are likely to continue in the long-term. RV industry forecaster, Dr. Richard Curtin, projects that the number of RV owning households will rise to 8.2 percent by the year 2010. Although rising gas costs are a concern for many, they do not seem to significantly impact recreational vehicle sales. Despite the high fuel costs, 93 percent of RV owners intend to use their RVs as often or more frequently in the summer. More than a third of the RV owners say fuel costs will not affect RV travel plans and the rest believe that they will plan to drive more total miles. Others say they will adjust their travel plans to conserve fuel. Staying closer to home and spending more time in one place are the top ways RV owners adapt to avoid extra expense on fuels.

As a result of all these, RV-owning households are projected to rise by 15%(nearly 8 million by 2010), outpacing the 10% growth in U.S. households. Among all U.S. households, one in six intends to purchase an RV. Increasing numbers are enjoying the RV lifestyle, tailoring the length of their trips to their budgets. Every month, some 350,000 people turn 50, entering the prime decade for RV purchases. In addition, a majority of RV owners plan to upgrade their existing RV's. These factors have led the Recreational Vehicle Association to forecast the strongest dollar-volume-year ever. People are resorting to the RV as an alternative for holiday, hospitality or business use. For those who prefer maximum enjoyment while travel and still desire the entertainment value of a cozy homely atmosphere, they should surround themselves in the elegance of a luxurious recreation vehicle.

Whether you have a motorhome, travel trailer or fifth-wheel trailer, all types of RV's and motorhomes are designed to offer well-equipped and furnished interiors to suit our requirements and provide a luxurious mobile accommodation. An RV combines transportation and temporary living quarters for travel, recreation, and camping. So, own an RV and enjoy the RV lifestyle by taking to long endless journeys.
