Home on the Road


Americans can spend big bucks on a vacation home. These properties — complete with year-round bills and upkeep even if it is only occupied a few months each year.

Consider investing in a recreational vehicle to enjoy a low-maintenance vacation home you can store in your driveway.

Owning an RV rather than a vacation home prevents you from being tied down to one location. It gives you the opportunity to travel to exciting places and witness the beautiful views America offers.

Make It Your Own

If money is not an object, you can find RVs that come stocked with the same furnishings as your home. Marble countertops, big-screen televisions and even electric fireplaces are all possibilities in today’s top-of-the-line recreational vehicles.

However, if you’re on a budget, you can still channel the interior decorator inside you to create an attractive
space in which to enjoy the country.

  • Mood lighting: Adding LED lights to your RV’s interior instantly adds a level of coziness. Countertops and tables provide a great ambiance when paired with LED lights. You also can find battery-powered candles that can be placed anywhere.
  • Tile backsplash: Any kitchen will benefit from an inspired backsplash that connects the counter to the cabinets, and RV kitchens are no different. Put together a creative design that adds some flair to your area. Consider using an adhesive-backed faux-tile backsplash for an affordable option.
  • Decorate: Spruce up your space by adding stylish rugs, curtains and even pictures to your interior. Display the places you’ve been by creating a souvenir wall that features signs or knickknacks you have acquired on your journey.

Where To Travel

According to the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association, there are more than 16,000 public and privately owned campgrounds nationwide. This makes it easy to find a place to stop for the night or weekend. In some areas, you will find luxury RV resorts that feature incredible amenities such as golf courses, spas and even tennis courts. Public campgrounds are usually more affordable and typically offer beautiful views, hiking trails and other outdoor opportunities.

Check your route for campgrounds before you hit the road.

Freedom To Roam

A recreational vehicle makes it possible for you to experience amazing beaches and mountain ranges and learn firsthand about different cultures around the country. Unlike a conventional vacation home, an RV creates a comfortable living space without strings attached.
