RVing is Still the Cheapest Kind of Vacation

October 7, 2008

On the Road Again. . . Did you know? Despite record-breaking fuel prices, typical RV trips remain the least expensive type of vacation, according to a new study by PKF Consulting. “Typical RV family vacations are on average 27 to 61 percent less expensive than other types of vacations studied,” the report found.

When the 56th Annual California RV Show rolls into Fairplex and fills up the White Ave. parking lot, you’ll have a shot at more than 1,000 RV options. In fact, you can drive in your old RV and drive out with the newest 2009 model. If you’re having trouble deciding what type of RV is best for your style of motor vacationing, RVers Joe and Vicki Kieva will conduct their popular seminar, “10 Tips for Choosing an RV” at noon every day of the show. If you’ve never driven an RV, there’s a seminar for that, too: “Yes, You Can Drive an RV” held daily in the seminar tent at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.

If you’re about to embark on full-time RVing, don’t miss the Kievas’ second seminar, “Full Time and Extended RV Travel” at 2 p.m. daily where you can learn how to manage your finances on the road, send and receive email, refill prescriptions and get medical care while traveling for long periods of time.

  1. I went to the RV show this past weekend, found blowout deals that can fit anyones budget! If you can not afford to buy an RV you can rent on! Since there are so many vendors I was able to secure my RV rental and find great camp grounds to stay in throught the USA.

  2. I loved the RV show! I convinced my parents to go because you were able to do trade-ins! Looks like I might be riding in style really soon! 🙂

  3. Hey RV Vacationer – That is so true. I just went and secured a rental as well. I also purchased a portable bbq grill too. Did you know that there is a KOA campground right next to the RV show? It’s pretty nice! The rates are very reasonable as well.
