Discover America in a RV: Save Money and Have Fun
If you want to go on holiday in America, you can expect to spend a pretty penny if you fly, stay in hotels, and eat at restaurants. If you’re budget-minded and want to enjoy your holidays while not breaking the bank, RVing is the way to go.
In most touristy areas of America, hotels can easily cost over $100 a day, and they’re often much more expensive in larger cities. At a hotel, you also won't get to meet as many travelers and like-minded people, which is a huge part of the experience.
Eating healthy in the United States is not easy. While there are a lot of great foods to sample, a diet of fast food and roadside diner food is not good for your wallet or your waist.

Some RVs have full kitchens that are nicer than some apartments, and even with basic RVs, you can prepare simple meals.
There is a strong sense of community among RV enthusiasts. Whether you stay in a campground near the beach, at a national park, or in a city, you can mingle with other friendly RVers. If you want to save money, travel slowly, and see off-the-beaten-path attractions in the United States, an RV is the best way to do it, hands down.
