Thousands of seniors RV as vacation travelers or seasonal “snowbirds." Thousands more, some estimate as many as a million, live full time in their RVs.

Follow the sun. For months at a time.  Savor travel’s pleasures. Make new friends, or connect with old ones. Visit family. As our age increases, so, too, do our opportunities to experience all that RVing has to offer. Today’s seniors are zestfully on the go, and RVs can take them wherever their hearts desire.

Thousands are part-time RV users, weekend and vacation travelers or seasonal “snowbirds." Thousands more – some estimates go as high as a million – live full time in their RVs.

Seniors find today’s RVs make travel and camping comfortable and extremely accommodating, even for those with physical restrictions. RV travelers enjoy  home comforts like queen-sized beds and central air and heat. Many of these “condos-on-wheels” have slideout rooms that expand their interior space by about one-third at the push of a button. On-board closets and storage space eliminate the need to pack, unpack and carry bulky suitcases. Fully equipped kitchens help older RVers follow special diets and vacation more economically by avoiding fast-food eateries and high-priced restaurants.

RV travel fosters a sense of community, offering mature travelers a valuable network of friends who share common interests. Especially popular among seniors are camping clubs, which provide an active social network on the road. Camping clubs hold annual conventions, regional rallies, campouts and other events to bring RVer’s together.

While not everyone can backpack or tent-camp, anyone can enjoy outdoor living at a campground with an RV. And with so many RVs from which to choose, from Type A motorhomes to truck campers, there are models available to fit every lifestyle and interest. Many RV campgrounds offer expanded facilities and a variety of activities such as golf, tennis, tours and social events.

The relaxed RV lifestyle can help add years to your life – and zest to those years.

“RVing allows seniors and retirees to see the country in style while meeting new people and experiencing new things. Older adults have everything they need in their RV to have a safe, comfortable and stress-free getaway.”
-David Woodworth, RV historian

There are 3,679,182 square miles to see in America. And no better way to see them than in an RV.
