Four-dollar gas? Not a problem.
We were plowing through our Inbox this morning when we came across some surprising news. According to a survey recently published by the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association, ore than half of RV owners plan to use their RVs more often this spring/summer than they did last year by enjoying frequent weekend vacations and staying closer to home, according to a new survey.
The latest Campfire Canvass survey of RV owners reveals that 53 percent intend to use their RV more this spring/summer despite higher fuel prices, while 38 percent plan to use theirs the same amount and just 9 percent say they’ll use their RVs less.
Of the respondents who plan to use their RVs more often, 65 percent said one of the reasons is to take more mini-vacations.
Surprisingly, 32 percent said they wouldn’t be affected by higher prices. As gas prices increase, RV owners cite the affordability and value of RV travel as a major benefit to owning an RV.
What about you? If own an RV, camper or toy hauler, will you be traveling more this year, less, or about the same as last year? (Photos courtesy RV Magazine.)
