Protect Your Family Budget
Families agree that economically speaking, RV travel adds up: convenience and comfort plus low costs. Your initial investment in an RV pays off quickly because you spend far less overall for transportation, lodging and food than people who fly, take a cruise, train or bus trip, or even drive the family car.
RV travelers don't have to worry about departure requirements, fine print, refundable tickets, special fare restrictions. They can plan daily costs without hidden surprises in tips, taxes, fees, penalties and add-ons.
Since the 1980s, PKF Consulting, an international travel and tourism research firm, has conducted seven complete vacation cost analyses comparing the cost of various typical family RV trips with other types of vacations. Every study, including the most recent in 2008 when fuel prices were at a cyclic high, found that a typical family RV vacation costs less than a vacation with travel by personal car or airline coupled with hotels and rental cars, or taking a cruise or renting a condo.
Among the RV vacations, even those taken in an ultra-luxury Type A diesel motorhome were less expensive than flying and staying in a hotel for all but one trip analyzed. Only a family taking a vacation by personal car with hotel or renting a condo and cooking for themselves would spend less than a family taking a trip in a high-end motorhome. Type A owners say the added space, comfort and convenience while traveling justify the added investment in the luxury model.
