RV camping isn’t what it used to be. Aside from advancements in technology and flashier versions of your parents’ clunky Coachmen, we’re seeing more variety in a growing population of RV campers.
No longer reserved for retirement, RVs are an increasingly popular way to road trip, explore natural places, vacation with family, and even to live on the road, full-time—at any stage in life. According to RVIA, 11% of households in the U.S. headed by 35-54-year-olds own an RV; that’s the most RVs of any age group.
RV campers on The Dyrt are constantly demonstrating how great it is out there, with photos and reviews of the campgrounds they visit. So with this issue of The Dyrt Magazine, we’re diving into the world of RV camping.
Of course, some campers still prefer bringing a tent and a sleeping bag into the backcountry. RVs can be seen as luxuries that contradict the desire to “escape” things like a sink full of dishes and electricity. But for many, RVs are what make camping possible. They can make family vacations more affordable and nature more accessible. (Not everyone has the ability or the desire to sleep on the ground.)
RV camping can be just about whatever you want it to be. And there’s certainly no shortage of nature when you can step outside into a night full of stars, warm desert sand, or the peaceful whispering of a pine forest.
