Four Reasons To Rent An RV At Your Next Tailgating.

Four Reasons To Rent An RV At Your Next Tailgating.

1.Your Very Own Clean Bathrooms.


Ladies, this one is especially for you! Because who wants to use the woods? Or a porta-potty?  When you go RV tailgating you bring with you a clean private bathroom.  We all know what to expect in a porta-potty or even a stadium restroom.  The lines, the smell and the germs are a price we pay to tailgate, but there is a better way.  Tailgate in style and enjoy all the benefits of home in the FAN ZONE.  Do not own an RV no problem, get a rental RV from BOOK it RV  and enjoy the benefits of your own bathroom with shower.

2.The Food

RV Kitchens Let You Go Crazy with the Menu

Your tailgating menu is no longer limited by the size of your cooler and what can be cooked on a grill. Now, you can take advantage of a full kitchen and a limitless menu.  Throw some chili in a crock pot or some pizzas in the oven.  Got an early game, no worries make some bacon and eggs and even put some bread in the toaster.

3. Be Prepared for All Tailgate Weather With an RV

Have you ever gone to a tailgate during the day only for it to get cold by game time or have a surprise storm roll in? For all weather situations an RV provides the perfect cover. Is it a 100 degrees outside take a break and chill in the AC.  Cold front making it unbearable outside, grab your blanket and cozy up in the warmth with the heater on.   
Caught in a rain storm, how awesome is it to come back to the RV and be able to change into dry clothes and keep tailgating? Or take a shower and put on dry clothes after a really hot game?

4. Avoid the traffic jams.

Worn out from the exciting game dreading the traffic on the way home? Rushing and leaving game early to beat the traffic? We have a better way. Relax in comfort, take a nap or a shower while everyone else is fighting traffic. Don't forget that chili you have in the crock pot, hop in your recliner with TV remote in hand while everyone else is battling traffic.  Could there be a better way to tailgate???

Renting an RV in Florida?

Renting an RV in Florida?

An RV, is the best way for the family to get around. You will always have a place to sleep and a fridge at the ready -- you wouldn't even have to make bathroom stops. The catch? Don't own an RV and never driven one? BOOK it RV makes it easy for your family to make those memories, learned about the three basic models, and took a few out for a spin. They are not as unwieldy as you may fear, and a small Class C seems to be the best fit for most small to medium size families. It turns out renting an RV cheaper VS hotels.

Tip's to Know Before Getting a RV Rental

If you’ve ever gone on a camping trip before, you know that sometimes, one or two days just isn’t enough time. It seems like just as soon as you’re getting into the swing of things and starting to enjoy yourself, it’s already time to pack up and go home!

The feeling is even worse when you’ve rented an RV – it can be nearly impossible to cut your adventure short when your home on wheels is just begging to answer the call of the road. Luckily, renting an RV for a week is a lot more affordable than you think. And if you keep reading, you’ll find out how to get a real bang for your buck. Here, we’ll cover everything you need to know about renting an RV.
Finding the Right RV for Your Family and the Budget

The first and most important thing about renting an RV is choosing the right one. You don’t want to end up in something overpriced and oversized, and you certainly don’t want to end up crammed tightly into an RV that will not fit your family. Check out the following list and keep in mind you all options will have a pet friendly option.

Class As

Class As are big, lumbering beasts and are often the most luxurious of the motorized RV category, though smaller and older models may have just basic amenities. They range in size from 25 to 45 feet in length, and standard layouts can sleep up to eight people. However, they can be tricky to drive. Much like driving a bus, there will be a bit of backswing when taking a turn, and backing up can be a challenge. They’re best for people who want high-end amenities (like big-screen entertainment systems and washer/dryers) and are confident in their driving skills.

Class Bs

Class B vans are great for the minimalist adventurer. Their small size makes them perfect for accessing remote locations and stealth camping. If you’re going to be visiting a lot of cities during your travels, you’ll have a much easier time finding a place to park in a Class B van. Keep in mind, though; they’re usually only between 16 to 22 feet in length, so are best suited for a traveling couple or three people at the most. Class Bs will have basic amenities like a bed, a kitchenette, and a small TV. Some may also have a commode and a shower.

Class Cs

Class Cs are the perfect compromise of space and amenities. They’re smaller than Class As, ranging from 24 to 32 feet or so, yet have more privacy and places to sleep. This is due to the cabover bed, which is separate from the master bedroom in the back of the rig. They’re one of the most common RV weekly rentals because they’re spacious, yet easy to drive. The truck chassis makes driving a Class C feel natural, just like driving a large SUV or pickup truck. Plus, the separate sleeping spaces allow for a good amount of privacy, even in smaller models.

Travel Trailers and Fifth Wheels

Towable RVs are best for families that have their own tow vehicles, as long as the vehicle is rated to pull the weight. The smallest travel trailers (between 9 to 15 feet) can usually be pulled by a small truck or van. Larger travel trailers and fifth wheels, which can be as long as 35 feet, require a much stronger truck. Either way, since there’s no driving area inside the rig, you’ll have plenty of extra space to spread out. Fifth wheels are generally the more luxurious towable RV, with amenities like residential-sized kitchens, oversized couches, and bunk bedrooms.

Popup Campers

The most economic RV of the bunch, popup campers are very affordable and have all the basic amenities you need to camp comfortably. They’re light enough that you can use a car or SUV to tow one, and their compact construction makes them less susceptible to swaying and bumping on the road. Popups either have hard roofs with canvas sides, canvas all over, or hard fiberglass all over (A-frame). It’s up to you whether you want to be fully protected from the elements, or would rather sleep in what’s essentially an upgraded tent. Most layouts can comfortably sleep five or six people.

Cruising Along in Florida

There are about 4 million miles of roads in America but only a fraction of those can deliver a 100 percent authentic Florida road trip. And with a variety of high-test two-lane drives, Florida road trips might just be the best road trips of them all. From coast to coast and from Pensacola to Key West you’ll discover a mix of coastal roads, long stretches atop the Lake Wales Ridge, and forest roads that shoot like blacktop arrows through the green pines.

So pull out a map, choose a starting line, and get rolling.

Start Your Engines!

Florida and driving are intertwined. From early land speed records set along the Atlantic Coast to the high-octane energy of today’s Daytona 500, driving is part of our nature.

Where records were broken and history made is a road that’s ready to be explored.

Oceanfront A1A is a road best experienced with the top down, the sound up, and the odometer rolling over. The two-lane strings a line along the Atlantic Coast for hundreds of miles, but rather than embark on a marathon motoring tour, it’s just as pleasing to separate the highway into sections. With wonderful beaches, barrier islands, and historic communities along the way, you can divide trips by any number of destinations; Amelia Island to St. Augustine, St. Augustine to New Smyrna Beach, New Smyrna Beach to Melbourne and so on down the line until you’ve arrived in Key West.

At the end of the line, make a U-turn and discover Florida’s interior via highways bypassed by interstates in the 1960s. Few drives are as pleasing as you travel through a region nearly frozen in time -- especially the combination of highways 441, 27, and 78 that encircle Lake Okeechobee on the northern fringes of the Everglades.

Further north, Highway 27 connects Lake Placid, Sebring, and Lake Wales. Motorists who discover this stretch of road along the Lake Wales Ridge enjoy state parks, museums, art galleries, shopping, theatres, lakes, and rolling hills of citrus.

North of Orlando, Highway 19 is literally a drive in the country as it sneaks into the Ocala National Forest where lakes, crystal clear springs, and hiking trails are a natural attraction for anyone who loves the outdoors.

This only scratches the surface.

The Best of the West

Florida road trip enthusiasts ready for a double dose of great driving fill ‘er up and head to western Florida where two highways deliver completely different, but equally unforgettable, driving experiences. Interstate 10 is the fastest route between Jacksonville and Pensacola, but it takes a back seat to its more laid back predecessor, U.S. 90. This is a link to Florida’s past and a present for motorists yearning to experience Old Florida as they drive through a land of magnolias, oaks, rolling hills, and antebellum homes and discover charming towns like Madison, Monticello, Quincy, and DeFuniak Springs.

South of U.S. 90 is one of America’s best road trip roads: US 98. From Pensacola to Carrabelle, this is western Florida’s version of A1A, hugging the waterfront as it glides along the Gulf Coast. Where the land drops south, the road follows suit. Where a bay appears, a bridge spans it. At times the road is only a few feet from the water, even closer when high tide covers the mud flats.

It’s all in Florida and it’s all waiting for you. Happy RVing.

There is a better way. BOOK it RV is turning the RV Rental peer to peer platform industry on its head!!! 

  • 0.0% commission to rent your RV. 
  • Get paid on booking 
  • Total control of security deposits 
  • Massive Florida grass roots marketing 
  • Add videos to your listings 
  • Open communication with renters direct 

For RV Owners who rent their RV, there is no  need to give away a  %$$$ to get your RV rented.   RV Rental Platform in the past have charged up to 25% commission(other  will charge between 15%-25% commission on total reservation cost (minus taxes) depending on how many units do we list in their site.   The only way they will charge less commission is if you join a whole different software program) But there was no other option available to RV Owners.   Instead of a percentage based model  BOOK it RV  offers a subscription base model, which has  several advantages. Costs and budgets are controlled. With a subscription, you know what you are paying every month. It is fixed. Payments come out once a month on the same date. Budgeting is easier only $30 per month.
Compared to traditional percentage model, BOOK it RV only has an annual cost of $300 vs up to $10,000 from other sites.  What do you get for that $10,000 vs BOOK it RV?  

  1. Less control of security deposit
  2. Do not get funds at booking but when renter pick up the rental unit.
  3. Limited access to renters email address and phone number    
  4. No control over refunds
  5. Unable to list older vintage RVs
  6. Over pay
 As RV owners you are ask by other RV Rental sites not to communicate direct with renters.  Yet you are being asked to trust the renter with your RV, how does this seem possible?

Making Memories Instead of Buying "Stuff"

Making Memories Instead of Buying "Stuff"

Who can remember a gift you bought or were given 5 years ago? How about 10 years ago? How about from your childhood? Now think back to those same times, 5 or 10 years ago, and your childhood and think of a happy event. Maybe a vacation or a special trip. Think of the excitement leading up to it and the excitement of the loved ones that were joining you. Think of all the fond memories that were made with those loved ones. Maybe some of those loved ones aren't with us anymore and these fond memories are all we have. That feeling you have right now is why you should be making memories instead of buying "stuff".

The Everyday Struggle
Everyday we are bombarded by the next new product or must-have gadget. We are without a doubt a nation of consumers. Do these new products, this new "stuff" bring us real joy and happiness? Or is it just a temporary fix until the next must-have thing is released? How about the impact on our children? What does it say to them when we buy so many things we don't need? What if we replaced "stuff" with real life experiences and memories that would last a lifetime?

Making Memories
Vacations are a wonderful way to make memories. The problem with vacations however, is that they never last long enough and they are expensive! What if there were a way to go on a lot of mini vacations relatively inexpensively all while making memories that will last a lifetime? This is exactly what more and more people are doing through the use of RVs. Our family has been RV'ing for over a year and the experience has been wonderful! If you don't own an RV, renting one can provide an inexpensive way to take short weekend trips or mini vacations and have some awesome experiences close to home that won't break the bank!

Where To Go
Florida State Parks provide a wonderful place to spend a weekend in an RV. The cost ranges from $20 -$35 per night depending on the park. There are more than 50 beautiful state parks that have RV camping facilities. You can find state parks from the panhandle to the Keys. We love camping in our Florida State Parks. There are also many privately owned RV parks that have swimming pools and some even have water parks. If you enjoy the beach, there are campgrounds that are close to or even on the beach. If you enjoy the many theme parks and attractions Florida has to offer, there are campgrounds close to those as well. There are campgrounds for every occasion and budget. All of them offer a unique experience that is sure to make lasting memories.

Try It and You Might be Surprised
In the end, your loved ones won't remember the "stuff" you bought for them nor will you remember the "stuff" they bought for you. The only gift that will stand the test of time and bring a smile to their face and a smile to yours as the years pass will be the memories. I challenge you to replace all the "stuff" you want to buy with experiences and those experiences will inevitably turn into lasting memories. Start today, you will never regret making memories instead of buying "stuff".

How To Make Extra Money By Renting Your RV!

If you own an RV (recreational vehicle), it is likely you don’t use it every day, and when it’s not in use, it becomes an asset that just sits idle in your driveway or in storage.

Thanks to the internet, the sharing economy has flourished for homeowners, and now, the sharing economy goes beyond homes and vacation properties.  Everyone can use a little extra money these days, and this process has created a way to increase your bank account by leveraging your assets.
According to the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association, over 8.9 million households own an RV, and this number only continues to increase.

Many RVs sit unused in storage lots, driveways, and backyards, so why not try to make a little money while you’re not using your RV?  And, who doesn’t want to earn a little extra money?
Whether you just want to make more money, you have goals that you want to reach (maybe you finally want to go on your dream vacation), you have big expenses coming up, or something else, finding ways to make extra money can really help you financially.

So, if you already have an RV and you know when you won’t be using it, it’s possible that you can make extra money by doing by listing it on BOOK it RV, to help cover some of your RV ownership costs, such as maintenance, storage, etc. BOOK it RV is helping travelers save money by cutting out the middleman through renting RVs directly from local owners. 

Think of it as the Airbnb for RVs . 

By listing your RV rental online with BOOK it RV, you can earn between $5,000 and $30,000 a year in extra income. BOOK it RV is the only rental website that allows the owner to get paid directly from the renter.  There is no delay when you get your money.  If your RV is booked months in advance you get the funds at the time of booking not when the rental gets returned.  Also owners are in control of the security deposit and can release it once the RV has been inspected upon return, no middle man deciding if you have a claim or not.  So, instead of letting your RV sit idle in your driveway or storage unit, why not make some extra money with it?
RVing is becoming more and more popular, and the lifestyle is definitely booming!

How much does the average RV owner make by renting their RV?

The average RV owner earns more than $10,000 per year in extra income by renting out their RV online to strangers. Some RV owners are earning more than $30,000 a year, and I even read an article where someone said they were earning over $80,000 per year by providing an RV share service.
The exact amount you can earn with your RV rental varies because of many factors, such as the type of RV and where it is located.

With BOOK it RV you have complete control over your pricing when you create your RV listing.
To determine what you price your RV rental at, it is recommended that you look at comparable RVs in your area and price your RV similarly. It is as simple as seeing what others are pricing theirs for and trying to find a number that makes sense for you.
Here are some general pricing as of 2018
  • Travel Trailers $75 to $175 per day
  • Class C Motorhomes $125 to $250 per day
  • Class A Motorhomes $150 to $300+ per day

What kind of RVs can you rent on BOOK it RV?
No matter what type of RV you have, you can rent it out 
Different types include:
  • Class A Motorhome
  • Class C Motorhome
  • Class B Motorhome
  • Travel Trailer
  • Fifth Wheel
  • Toy Hauler
  • PopUp Trailer
  • Truck Camper

As you can see, it's not limited to just one or two types of rentals.

How much does it cost to rent out your RV online?

BOOK it RV charges 0% commission to rent out YOUR RV. 
Compared to others that charge an average of 20%
OTHERS- 20% OF 3 RENTALS FOR THE MONTH AT AN AVERAGE OF $1000 PER RENTAL = $1000 x 3=$3000 @20% commission is a total $600 in FEES.
BOOK it RV = $30.00 that's a 95% savings

So, what's the next step to making money with an BOOK it RV?

Making RV rental income on BOOK it RV is an easy process.
  1. Click here to head to BOOK it RV and sign up. You can set your price and your availability.
  2. Book rentals with customers on the website. You can accept or reject any rentals that are booked for your RV – it's all up to you.
  3. The person renting your RV comes to you, and when they are done, they return it to you.
  4. After someone has booked and your RV, you receive your payment direct from the renter.
Note: Before doing an BOOK it RV, I do recommend contacting your RV insurance company and making sure that they allow you to rent your RV to strangers. You just want to make sure before you proceed.

15 tips to get the most from your first RV rental.

15 Tips To Get The Most From Your First RV Rental.

If you’ve never rented an RV for a vacation, you might want to consider
unique method of travel. 
Renting an RV offers the fun and flexibility of a road trip and also gives you a
home on wheels wherever you go. 
Use these 15 tips to get the most from your first RV rental.
1 – Plan Ahead
Once you decide to take an RV trip, you have to determine what type of RV 
you’ll rent, where you’d like to stay, 
and what you want to do along the way. 
Once you have those decisions made, you can use that information to create 
your budget, plan any specific activities, and meal prep.
Planning your RV trip from start to finish is the key to getting the most out of 
your RV rental.
2 – Determine Your Group
Because RV rentals are small spaces (even Class A motorhomes, the biggest 
type of RV on the market), 
RVing isn’t for everyone, so you’ll want to make sure everyone who commits 
will feel comfortable with this style of vacation. 
Talk with family and friends who are interested, and then read about what to
expect at your destinations 
so that everyone understands the plan.
If people are uncomfortable with any of the details, such as the duration of the trip,
the activities, or simply being in a small space, 
they should probably skip this one.
3 – Choose Destinations Everyone Will Enjoy
One of the biggest perks of renting an RV is that you can pretty much go 
anywhere you want. 
Whether it’s a national park, the beach, or staying at a luxury RV resort in Florida
make sure there’s something for everyone to enjoy along the way. 
This means looking for activities for any kids, making sure you and your partner
have time alone 
or ensuring there’s fun for everyone no matter your destination.
4 – Select the Right RV to Rent
Once you know where you’re going and who’s coming with you, you can choose
the right size motorhome to rent.
You’ll need enough sleeping space for everyone, enough space to lounge,
the capacity to bring along everything you need, 
and it should have the right kitchen appliances for you to make meals at the RV park 
or campground.
Pro Tip: Just because an RV says it sleeps six doesn’t mean it sleeps six comfortably, 
which is why you should tour the motorhome before you rent.
5 – Budget According
Budgeting will likely be an ongoing process as you research all the options for each step
(renting, activities, necessities, etc.), 
but you can start creating a budget now and adjust as you make more decisions. 
As you’ll see in the following tips, your budget should include not only the RV you’ve chosen to rent, 
but extra fees with the vehicle, park and campground fees, amenities, and everything else along the way—
where you’ll stay (e.g. National Park passes), gas for the trip, 
spontaneous excursions, and meals and activities at each destination. 
If you want to rent a car anywhere for activities not suitable for an RV, you should plan for that, too.
6 – Be Aware of RV Fees
Besides the base cost of renting an RV, there are a few other costs you should know about. 
You’ll need to put down a deposit upfront, you’ll need insurance for your trip, 
and depending on the duration or destination of your trip (e.g. out of state), there are additional fees. 
Many RV rental companies also provide extra amenities at a cost, 
such as linens, kitchenware, generators, propane, and more. 
However, paying for some of the above, such as propane and a generator are cheaper upfront
than trying to do so at an RV park or campground.
7 – Consider the Type of RV Experience You Want
There are many types of RV experiences out there. For first-time RV renters, 
you’ll want to go with the easiest out there.
Stay at a fully-loaded RV park or campground that has full hookups, 
a dump station, and staff on site.
Look at Kampgrounds of America (KOA) or ReserveAmerica to browse the accommodations.
8 – Research Specific Parks or Campgrounds
When researching an RV park or Campground , read reviews from people who took a similar 
trip to the one you’re planning.
If they went to the same destinations you’re considering, you’ll be able to read about their experiences.
You also want to make sure you’re staying at a place that has all the features and functionality
you want during your stay. 
Private RV parks and campgrounds, especially ones closer to what you want to do,
are often more expensive than discount communities,
such as KOAs or Escapees RV Club.

9 – Research Prices and Extras at RV Parks and Campgrounds
RV parks and campgrounds can also have extra fees and pricing you need to factor into your budget. 
Most of these fees will be paid or known upfront when you book the trip, but others might occur when you arrive.
Some of these extras include additional nights at a campground or RV park, propane, generator rental, or firewood. 
Plus, transportation (whether that’s renting your own car or using a shuttle service or public transit) to and from the
campground and what you want to do can also cost more.
10 – Expect Poor Gas Mileage
Gas mileage is terrible when you rent an RV, and there’s not much you can do about it, 
especially if you’re traveling during the summer. 
The summer months see gas prices skyrocket across North America, so be prepared. 
You can even research cheaper places to stop for gas when you’re planning your route. Typically, 
gas stations along busy stretches of highway will be the most expensive.
11 – Remember That Driving an RV is Different Than Driving a Car
Make sure you’re comfortable driving a motorhome before you rent one. 
Often, you can test drive one at a dealership or even take one for a spin at an RV rental location—
they’ll also want to know you’re at ease driving one before renting.
Parking an RV at your destination can be tricky, too. 
If you’re having issues, ask for help from your fellow RVers or the park staff when you arrive. 
Don’t be afraid to ask for help—the RVing community is one of the most helpful around.
12 – Don’t Stress About RV Hookups
RV hookups confuse many new RVers, but they’re not as tricky as you might think.
Read the manufacturer’s manual that comes with your RV rental, 
and ask the dealership to explain how to hook up to water, electric, and sewer. 
If you’re still unsure once you arrive at the RV park or campground of your choice, 
ask for help from those around you or the park staff. Don’t connect to hookups if you’re unsure—
you could blow out the RV’s electrical system or cause waterline issues for the rig or grounds.
13 – Prepare for a Messy Experience
Dumping an RV wastewater task will not be a highlight of any RV rental experience, and it will be messy. 
If your RV rental company offers dump services, or your RV park or campground does, 
pay for it. It will be worth the expense. 
If you opt to do it yourself, ask for help if you need, watch online videos,
and be prepared for things to possibly go wrong.
Or consider going without tanks for the trip by using public restrooms
and showers at your campground or RV park.
14 – Save Money by Bringing Meals with You
One of the easiest ways to save money renting an RV is by making your meals. 
Your motorhome will come with a refrigerator, 
and if you have a generator or use electrical hookups, you’ll be able to keep your food edible.
Consider stopping at a grocery store or Walmart on your trip to get refrigerated items. 
Bring your snacks, drinks, and meal prep breakfast, lunch, and dinner for your trip. 
Eat out only when you must on an RV trip, and plan that ahead of time, too.

15 – Hit the Road
Finally, get on your way! Enjoy the experience and everything that comes with renting an RV for the first time.
You may discover you love it and decide to buy one to keep the adventure going.
Renting an RV is the best way to figure out if RVing is right for you or your family and Book It Rv has a great variety. 
While it may not be the cheapest way to travel, it offers you the chance to get away from day-to-day life, 
vacation differently than you’re used to, and experience adventure you wouldn’t get from other forms of travel.

RV vs Hotels: Which One Is Cheaper?

RV vs Hotels: Which One Is Cheaper?

There was a time when RV travel(RVing) was something only for retirees, but those days are long gone. Families have discovered the economies of scale that come into play when you don't have to take six people into a restaurant three times a day. Larger families that need two hotel rooms each night have discovered RV travel and the beauty of visiting national parks.
Clearly, there are many factors to getting behind the wheel of an RV. But many budget travel enthusiasts simply want an answer to the question "which way is cheaper, RVs or hotels?"
For purposes of simplicity, the term "RV" here describes a variety of choices: motor coaches, trailers, pop-up campers, and fifth-wheels among them.
Variables and Considerations
There are a number of variables in the equation that answers this question. Fuel prices, for
example, are never constant. Gas prices can be a burden or a bargain within the same calendar year.
Another key issue: Should you buy or rent? It's often wise to rent an RVfor a long weekend trip that doesn't take you too far from home. In late summer and fall, Book it RV sometimes offer time-limited deals. This allows you to try out an RV without spending as much money. Keep in mind that a new RV can cost as much as a small house. You might need to spend $100,000 or more to bu an RV, so it only makes sense to try a rental for a few times before considering the added financial commitment of a lease or full ownership.
As you compare costs between RV travel and hotel arrangements, keep in mind that costs vary widely, and circumstances can dictate with choice is the most cost-effective fairly quickly. If you have a small family but enjoy the RV lifestyle, you might not worry that your savings over hotel travel are little or nothing. A large family that wants to get away from the chores and simply enjoys the freedom of the road might choose hotel travel, even though it is the more expensive alternative for them.
Your itinerary makes a difference, too. Large cities are not RV-friendly, while remote scenic wonders might not offer many decent hotel options.
With each, you are buying a list of advantages and disadvantages. Consider how those fit into your preferences as you look at your budget. Key question: Will the benefits of renting or buying an RV be outweighed by the drawbacks that cut into your precious vacation time? Generally,
the larger your family, the better your opportunity to save money with an RV. Savings also grow with the length of your trip.
Trip Costs
Two of the major costs in any road trip are meals and fuel. Consider the prospect of two weeks exploring the American West for a family of four. Here's an example:

Driving a vehicle:
  • ●  Meals: $1,750 ($125 a day)
  • ●  Gasoline: $233 (3,500 miles, 30 MPG, gas $2 a gallon)
  • ●  Total: $1983
    Taking an RV:
  • ●  Meals: $400 ($200 a week for groceries)
  • ●  Gasoline $700 (3,500 miles, 10 MPG, gas $2 a gallon)
  • ●  Total: $1,100
    Notice that the savings on meals that you'd prepare yourself if you take an RV trip more than offsets the higher cost of fuel. (Diesel fuel could cost even more.) Some RVs, offer a gas mileage of 15 MPG or more, so these figures obviously vary by model.
    So, you will save some money on meals in an RV, but if RV travel is to be a bargain, the big savings have to come from skipping expensive hotel rooms. Studies are all over the board on this important figure. Quality studies factor in a variety of other costs you might not think about right away, such as interest charges on the purchase of an RV or RV insurance.
    Generally, the savings of using an RV over hotels are significant. But some budget travelers expect the RV option to be far cheaper than it is, perhaps because they associate it with "roughing it", but in reality they are​ ​glamping​ ​. If you typically rent more than one hotel room for your family, your savings could be greater. But the family of four that can make do with one room per night might be at the lower end of the savings scale. Plus, it depends on if you usually book a high-end resort or a more modest chain hotel.
    Contrary to popular belief, parking an RV for the night is usually not free. People outside the RV world wrongly assume you can park anywhere you want for the night and pay nothing. That might happen occasionally(usually by prior arrangement) but most nights, there are camping fees to pay.
    The RV Lifestyle

The RV lifestyle offers wonderful moments that many people never experience: Nights around the campfire with fellow travelers, comparing notes about destinations past or to come, and awakening to the sounds of children playing on a sunny morning. There is no maid knocking on the door, intent on cleaning the room.
Any money saved has to be weighed against work to be done, and there's a lot of it. Groceries must be purchased. Meals must be cooked. Sewage holding tanks must be emptied. In some cases, you might work harder on the road than you do around the house.
Some people are willing to make the sacrifices and put in the work that leads to some nice benefits. But if you're not interested in such work during your limited vacation days, you should take careful note of this aspect of RV travel. In short, if you're the type of traveler who likes all-inclusive resorts, and eating in restaurants and staying in interesting hotels are highlights of a road trip for you, think long and hard about this option before making a serious commitment.
