Chip and Evi

There is no denying that RV travel is more popular today than it has ever been. With more than 485 locations, KOA reported that in 2020, there were more than 94.5 million camper households throughout North America. In the US, 48.2 million households camped at least once in 2020, including 10.1 million households that camped for the first time. Campers are more diverse than ever, with 60% of first-time campers in 2020 are from non-white groups, the highest rate since the inception of this report.
According to a Market Watch article published June 11, 2021, in an RVIA newsletter, RVing was hot in 2020. For example, well-known RV rental company Outdoorsy saw a 4,500% increase in bookings in 2020. And in 2021, there is reason to believe that this trend will continue. A recent survey by the RV Industry Association found that about three in 10 Americans hope to take an RV trip this year — 10% of whom have never done it before.
My wife Evi and I are in the 3 in 10 that plans to take an RV trip in 2021. As a matter of fact, since May 2021, we have been living in our RV full-time. We plan to live in our unit until the end of the year and then move into our permanent home. But, rest assured we will continue to take frequent trips in our motorhome.
With Covid 19 still in an issue in 2021, there is reason to believe travelers will want to venture out with family and close friends again. After all, there are over 4300 campgrounds in the USA to consider for your next group adventure.
