Bada$$ RVs  

Taking Glamping to the Next Level

Recreational vehicles, better known by their nickname - RVs, are super popular right now. Part of their rise in popularity is due to that ghastly global goblin we refer to as the Coronavirus. After being quarantined for so long, people found that RVs provided the perfect way to leave home without leaving their home. They could obey quarantine rules and keep their families safe while seeing new places and enjoying a little bit of nature at the same time. So, while COVID-19 wreaked havoc on most businesses, the RV industry was one of the lucky few that not only survived, but thrived. The pandemic created a booming market full of first-time customers - many of whom will turn into lifetime purchasers. 

This surge in RV sales has led to more and more people embracing the lifestyle. While the RV crowd used to be retired couples, today, the industry enjoys a slew of new customers including everyone from millennials, to young families, to remote workers traveling the country because they can. The pandemic also forced many people to reassess their lives, which led to simplifying, downsizing, and saving money. This minimalist approach fits in nicely with the RV lifestyle because it makes vacationing more affordable. 

Considering flight costs, hotels, and rental cars, traveling in an RV is much more budget-friendly. One night at a hotel is equivalent to a 3-day weekend in an RV park. And since you bring your kitchen with you, preparing your own meals saves big money compared to eating out. RVs are the perfect way for families to spend quality time together, friends to travel affordably, and retired couples to downsize and simplify their lifestyles. Throw in the ability for many to work remotely, and it’s clear why the allure of the RV has been amplified. 

So naturally, with demand on the rise, RV manufacturers have stepped up their game to create some amazing campers with awesome features that will take your RV experience to the next level. Let’s look at some of the most exciting additions. Today’s RVs will blow you away. 

Let’s start with the kitchens. Gone are the days of no counter space, tiny fridges and miniscule microwaves. Today’s RVs feature full-size stoves, ovens, and microwaves and even islands and pantries. Luxury amenities like solid-surface countertops, deep bowl farmhouse sinks, high-rise, pull-down single-lever faucets, and residential inspired backsplashes adorn these kitchens. You’ll enjoy solid wood custom cabinetry with adjustable hidden hinges. Oversized drawers glide effortlessly on ball-bearing drawer guides, and you may even find a wine rack above the microwave. These babies have gone from basic to bougie! 

Bedrooms feature extra-large storage drawers under the bed, LED overhead reading lights, convenient bedside outlets, and are prepped for bedroom TVs. Bathrooms boast one-piece countertops with large, undermount sink bowls, one-piece fiberglass showers with sliding glass doors and on-demand water heaters. Some RVs feature fireplaces and entertainment centers and even have a place for a washer and dryer. Modern RVs offer all the comforts of home - wherever that home may roam.
