If you picture RV travelers as mostly senior citizens, think again! Millennials, the generation born between 1980 and 2000 (especially in the 25-35 year old range) are a growing segment of RV travel. Here’s why:
Millennials Value Outdoor Recreation
Spending time in outdoor pursuits is big on the list of things Millennials hold dear. That’s why visiting state and national parks, lakes and forests, mountains and beaches all over America by RV is a no-brainer.
There’s nothing quite like being out in nature to feed the soul, and these adventurers are hitting the road to find our country’s most beautiful places, one campsite at a time. The more biking, hiking, rock climbing and other activities the better—they’re making it a life priority to get outside and play!
Millennials Expect Amenities
Comfortable accommodations with access to technology are at the top of list for Millennial travelers, one more reason to travel to a national park, a beach where the waves are epic or a music festival by RV. Amenities common in modern recreational vehicles include flat screen televisions, generators, plenty of electrical outlets, memory foam beds and fully-equipped kitchens.
Many RV campgrounds offer cable television hookups and wireless internet, as well. If you enjoy a home-away-from-home experience as you travel, younger travelers need look no farther than today’s RVs.
Millennials Enjoy Traveling with Friends
RV travel with a group of friends makes sense! Splitting the costs of an RV rental, fuel and food helps everyone budget for the trip, and the memories made while on the road are priceless. The wide range of floorplans and accommodations make traveling by motorhome flexible enough to fit most groups of traveling buddies.
Millennials Enjoy Combining Work with Travel
This up and coming generation of professionals values working outside the office. What better way for freedom-loving Millennials to contribute than from the road?
Picture this—you pull your motorhome or travel trailer into one of the many campgrounds that offer free wi-fi. Nearby are hiking or biking trails, or perhaps a lake to paddle board on your lunch break. In the comfort of your fully-equipped RV, you brew a little coffee, fire up the laptop and finish the reports the boss is waiting for. The internet makes telecommuting simple and RV travel to well, just about anywhere in America, makes it a pleasure!
