New Study Reveals RV Travel Will Increase This Holiday Season

Originally Published in MotorHome Magazine

In a recent holiday travel study conducted by the Good Sam Club, 71
percent of RVers claim that the current financial crisis will not
impact their RV travel plans this holiday season. As many as 81 percent
indicated that they will travel the same as, if not more than, they did
last year.

The survey was sent to 10,000 Good Sam Club members in November, 2008.

“With gas prices continuing to go down, RVers appreciate the
convenience and cost effectiveness of traveling in their RVs without
having to deal with extra airline costs, lost luggage or flight delays,”
said Sue Bray, executive director of the Good Sam Club.

Eighty four percent of respondents said the comfort of home was
their biggest motivator for choosing RV travel over airline travel this
year. They prefer the advantage of cooking their own meals, having pets
nearby and putting their own personal touches on their motorhomes.
Rvers also point to the overall sense of freedom motorhoming allows as
the most valuable component of RV travel.
