As we look to the (brighter) future, a recent survey of our travelers showed 77 percent are looking to make travel plans within the next three months*. While the rush back to airports or hotels in busy cities may take a little more time, many will turn to RV travel by renting a RV through RVshare.
Renting a RV is the ideal way to travel to not only avoid large groups, but a way to escape into nature and spend time outdoors; whether it’s hiking your favorite trails, reading a book next to the lake, or cozying up around a campfire.
RVshare is here to help with better days ahead, and the pent up demand for travel that is building.
RVshare is the first and largest peer-to-peer RV rental marketplace. With more than 100,000 vehicles available, RVshare’s diverse inventory ranges from affordable travel trailers to luxury motorhomes and can accommodate any outdoor adventure, whether it’s a weekend of camping or a cross-country tour of national parks.
Here is why RVshare is the top pick for RV travel:
Have your RV delivered right to you. Delivery is one of the most sought-after amenities. 1 In 5 RV renters got their RVs delivered last year (either to their home before traveling or to their final destination). RVshare will get you all set up and ready to go…talk about glamping!
Road trips will become even more popular. Road tripping in a RV with just family and loved ones and skipping busier methods of travel is more appealing than ever, with 78% of those surveyed stating they will visit a drivable destination. RVshare offers a worry free rental guarantee that offers payment and fraud protection.
Trips that focus on outdoors/nature will be on the rise. People are ready to stretch their legs and get outside after months of being confined indoors, with 65% of travelers reporting they will be heading somewhere in nature such as a national park.
People will continue to be wary of crowded locations. Many will avoid the close quarters of airplanes, cruise ships, hotels, and restaurants, with 93% of those polled stating they will avoid crowds*
Affordability will be even more key. After the loss of many jobs during COVID-19, affordable vacations such as a RV trip that rolls a method of travel, place to sleep, and kitchen into one will be more appealing
Local travel holds more appeal. The idea of choosing a destination closer to home resonated with 82% of RVshare travelers polled.

The RV industry has a $114 billion economic impact according to the results of the 2019 RVs Move America Study. The industry provides 596,355 jobs and $32.2 billion in wages. This new flood of RV travel will impact more than one industry. National and state parks and public and private campgrounds will also likely benefit. Not to mention the surrounding restaurants, shops, museums, and tourist attractions.
