TOWSON, MD (Thursday, August 13, 2020) - Summer vacations are looking different this year as a result of COVID-19. While there is a pent up demand for travel, many Americans remain cautious as they explore options. As a result, recreational vehicle (RV) purchases are soaring as travelers view this option as providing a safe place to eat, sleep, shower, and relax, as well as enjoy some of the lowest gas prices seen in the past four years. The RV Industry Association estimates 46 million Americans will take an RV trip in the next 12 months with almost 51% of those planning to travel via RV doing so because of health concerns.
“If you’re not experienced at driving an RV, spend plenty of time practicing before hitting the road,” says Kurt Gray, AAA Director of Driver Education. “This will allow you to get accustomed to the vehicle’s size and handling characteristics.”

Drivers must remember that an RV is more than a vehicle, it’s a home for you and your family while you’re traveling.
