The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association reports that 35 million people in the U.S. engage in RV camping. Perhaps some of the advantages that attract devotees to this activity are the affordability and freedom as well as flexibility and wide-ranging options involved.

Being able to come and go as you please is a big plus. Snowbirds can travel south to escape the bitter chill of winter, and southerners can go north to get a reprieve from the searing hot temperatures of summer.

Options available in RVing permit newcomers to try it out before making a major investment in a motorhome. The best way to test the waters to see if you like the lifestyle is to rent, as the cost of rentals runs between $30 and $300 per day.

Once you find that you enjoy camping, you can purchase an RV. Your selections vary form a $4,000 pop-up camper to a $1.5 million dollar luxurious motorhome.

Your choices in places to stay are manifold. The country has approximately 14,600 RV parks, with rates typically ranging from $15 to $50 per night. However, some campgrounds may charge only $10 per night or they may even be free.

Aside from choices in locations and rates, you also have choices in the type of campgrounds in which you lodge. Your selections vary from rustic facilities to resorts with many fine amenities.

It is no wonder RVing is growing in popularity. You can tailor the activity to your budget and tastes.
