High-Profile RV Owners Love Their RVs

Originally Published in MotorHome Magazine

RV travel is more popular than ever, with ownership at a record high,
according to research by the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association
(RVIA), Reston, Virginia. People enjoy the comfort, convenience, control
and freedom that RVs offer. Take Olympic skier Bode Miller, for
example. At the recent World Cup Skiing competition, Miller said he
would rather stay in his RV than in the team hotel, and that he
preferred his own bed and food.

Miller is one of many high-profile athletes and celebrities who
are passionate about RVing. Here’s a list compiled by RVIA of 10
well-recognized people who have been quoted in news outlets on their
love of RVs:

Jeff Daniels, actor: “I don’t think you can call yourself a
true American until you’ve been behind the wheel of an RV … I love
seeing parts of the country I wouldn’t otherwise.”

Clarence Thomas, U.S. Supreme Court Justice: “Being an RVer
helps me do my job better. The RV world gives me a chance to balance
things out. It allows me a sense of freedom.”

Jeff Gordon, NASCAR driver: “My RV is the only place where I can find some peace and quiet.”

Bob Gibson, Hall of Fame major league pitcher: “I enjoy the RV world. I will have one until the day I die.”

Matthew McConaughey, actor: “There’s nothing not to like about
it. The freedom of being able to pull up, stop, power up anywhere you
want — beach or whatever. Set up and have your front yard different
every single day.”

Jim Kaat, former major league baseball pitcher: “I’ve gone from
being a major league pitcher to a major league RV owner. I’ll travel
roughly 5,000 miles in my RV this year. It’s a great way to see America,
and as relaxed a way to see the country as there can possibly be.”

Dean Karnazes, ultra marathon runner and best-selling author:
“It’s great for family bonding and eating healthy on the road, because
you can prepare your own foods.”

Sue Henry, best-selling mystery writer: “You meet so many
people in an RV. And they’re so friendly. I couldn’t do the research I
do without one. In an RV, I can park and have everything I need.”

Davis Love, pro golfer: “I’ve got my bed, my pillows, my satellite card, my underwear and socks in the RV.”

Bode Miller, U.S. Olympic skier: “My team is sabotaging me by not letting me sleep in my motorhome.”

RVIA (rvia.org) is the national association representing more
than 500 manufacturers and component suppliers producing approximately
98 percent of all RVs made in the United States. Visit GoRVing.com for more information about RVing, or to get a free DVD about how to get started.
