WASHINGTON — Who needs the hassle of selecting airline flights, waiting in security, choosing a rental car and checking into a hotel room? When owning an RV, you can just pick up and go anywhere you want, the release noted. With RV popularity on the rise, Geico said an RV is not just a vehicle but a lifestyle.
“RVs offer the freedom and flexibility to roam across America to any destination whenever you are ready to go,” said Tom McNicholas, Geico’s RV general manager. “As your home away from home, they are an excellent way to spend time with family, visit great destinations and connect with a growing legion of other RV enthusiasts.”
According to the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association’s June survey, RV sales are up 9 percent from the previous year. By the end of 2014, sales are projected to top 350,000 units sold, the most since 2008, with Baby Boomers making up the majority of RV purchases.
According to the release, the rise in RV popularity can be attributed to factors such as affordability compared to other forms of vacation travel and access to a growing number of new RV resorts and parks that offer amenities such as tennis courts, golf courses and high-end health spas.
McNicholas notes that RV manufacturers have done a good job to create vehicles catered to people in every stage of their lives. “From temporary living quarters to travel, recreation and camping, there is an RV to suit nearly every taste and budget.”
