Is the RV lifestyle right for me? Am I like other RVers? Will I fit in at the campground? All of these are valid, common questions that run through the minds of new RVers. If you’ve never owned a motorhome before or don’t know anyone else who owns one, it’s intimidating to get into the lifestyle. But, don’t worry; we’re here to put all of those fears to rest.
Let’s set the record straight right off the bat: RVing is for everyone! You don’t have to fit into a box to become a Class C motorhome owner. If you’ve never camped before, you may watch a movie about the RV lifestyle and think that you have to be a certain “type” of person to enjoy it, but that’s simply not true. One of the most beautiful things about RVing is that it appeals to people who come from all different walks of life.
Some may worry that van life is lonely, free of friends — another common misconception. As you go remote, you keep in touch with loved ones back home, but you also meet many people along the way. Don’t be afraid to introduce yourself and participate in activities at the campsite or join a club. If you own a Class A Diesel, look into the Thor Diesel Club. You can also join our RVillage community and meet people that way. You may even meet a friend for life that you otherwise wouldn’t have met. Don’t let fear hold you back; you will definitely make friends.
To sum it all up, the RV lifestyle is right for you if… You want to see the country but don’t want to leave your pets behind. You’re retired and ready to live out your dream. You’re young and want to experience the world before settling down. You’re any age and want to live on your schedule. You want more weekend getaways, more time with family, more time outdoors. We could go on and on. No matter what point you’re at in your life or your passions, the RV lifestyle is right for you.
It feels good to put all of those fears to rest. But, now that you feel confident about your choice to join the RV lifestyle, what’s next? Well, we’re here to help. Our Coach Link® Sales Advisors are a team of experts ready to answer any questions you may have, help you find which RV is best for you, and check your local dealer’s inventory.
