RVs Are Among the Safest Travel Options!


According to a travel survey conducted by Abacus Data, RVs are highlighted as one of the safest travel options this year! This past year has been difficult and traveling hasn’t been quite the same due to COVID-19’s impact, so many are ditching planes taking up road-tripping in RVs! 


The survey revealed that 66 percent of Americans considered RVing and camping “not risky” and 94 percent of respondents mentioned “doing something safe” as a top priority for future traveling, even with the vaccine rolling out in large numbers. Abacus Data CEO David Coletto said, “Our survey results show that Americans consider Rving and camping almost twice as safe as other types of accommodations such as staying in a hotel!”. 


A big reason why RVing has become so popular during this time is that it includes outdoor time with self-contained accommodations, the ability to abide by social distancing guidelines, and there is no need to quarantine during or after the trip. This is because you are only with those people and are not in areas where crowds of people are!


With the COVID-19 pandemic, a new way to travel had to be found. RVing was that alternative to traditional flights and hotels for many. Not only is it safer and convenient, but it also allowed travelers to explore the outdoors and spend a great time with family and friends. 


The survey also highlighted things in favor of RVing. The likelihood of road trips this summer increased 6 percent while the intent to fly, stay at a hotel, go on a cruise, or stay with friends and family all went down. The survey also found that 52 percent of the respondents considered RVing as one of the only safe travel options during the COVID-19 pandemic, showing you how convenient an RV is if you are trying to travel.
