Staying in an RV is better than a Hotel - Here’s Why

May 1, 2020

Pick a date, pick a location and go - that’s the beauty of traveling on wheels - but that’s just the beginning. 

We’ve all been there before: cooped up in the house, stuck in the same routines, watching sitcom reruns, going on social media to find pictures of places you’ve only dreamed of going. You think to yourself, “Maybe someday.” But, why not tomorrow? No hotel reservations necessary, just turn the key and go. Here is why vacationing in an RV is better than staying in a hotel.

            A motorhome allows you to take a vacation 52 weekends of the year. Too many times you’ve seen hotels sold out during prime times of the year or skyrocketed prices. Creating an itinerary for your trip is supposed to be fun, and is even a favorite part for some, but not being able to find a place to stay can ruin all of your plans. With an RV, you can get up and go.

            Staying in a hotel means specific check-in and check-out times. You might even end up sitting in the parking lot, waiting for that last hour to pass. Your journey can begin on your time when you have your own motorhome. Thanks to your RV, you can get a head start on your day, get to the beach before anyone else or bike along the trail without disruptions.

            Speaking of disruptions, no one likes nosey or noisy neighbors. From awkward elevator rides, crowded continental breakfasts or people in the room next to you peeking in and making noise, your hotel doesn’t allow you to have a private oasis. When you vacation in a motorhome, you’re in your own space - really, you’re in your own home.

            Home-cooked meals is another perk you can’t get out of a hotel. Sure, it’s nice to go out every once in a while, but it can get expensive and unhealthy. In a motorhome, you’ll have a residential kitchen, so your ingredients stay fresh and you won’t have to veer from your health plan. Plus, nothing compares to the perfect family recipe. If you do need some inspiration or want to switch it up, we created some Mobile Meal recipes for you on our YouTube channel.

            When dreaming about your vacation, more often than not, you picture a beautiful, scenic sunrise to wake up to every day. Odds are if you’re staying in a hotel, the only thing you’ll see outside of your window is a concrete jungle. Thor Motor Coaches allow you to get off the beaten path and choose what view you want to wake up to every morning. If you find a spot and fall in love, you can stay there but if you want a different perspective each day, you aren’t locked in to a reservation. You’ll wake up not only loving your view, but ready to take on the day.

            Here’s one of the best parts to vacationing in a motorhome: you set your own cleaning policies. In a hotel, you want to assume the best but the truth is, you might not know all of their regulations. Rest your head on your pillow every night knowing that no one slept in the bed before you. We have it all: bunks, overhead drop-downs, pop-top sleeping areas and Twin-size to King-size beds. Rest assured, you’ll love vacationing in your Thor Motor Coach.

            No flights, no rental car, no suitcases, no stress. When you’re traveling the country in your motorhome, it will prove itself superior to staying in a hotel. If this doesn’t convince you, check out our motorhomes for yourself. Thor Motor Coaches are made to fit you, your lifestyle and all of your family.
