Common RVing Myths and Misconceptions

Posted by | RV Culture

If you’re considering the RV lifestyle but have some reservations holding you back, you might simply be operating under a common misconception about RVing or subscribing to a myth about the RVing life.

Dispel those misconceptions and learn how RVing is more accessible, convenient, and comfortable than you may believe.

RVs are Hard to Drive and Operate

You might be daunted by the prospect of driving and operating an RV. And you’re not alone. RVs can look intimidating, especially if you usually drive a sedan and the RV you’ve got your eye on is a class A. They’re basically buses in terms of size.

Don’t let that fear stop you from owning an RV, however. You’ll get the hang of driving even the largest RV. Just practice driving in an empty parking lot, especially turning and backing up. Go from parking lots to small roads to busy streets to the highway.

If the prospect of driving a larger rig is too daunting, you can always own a smaller motorhome or travel trailer. Some motorhomes are the size of large vans and some travel trailers are petite enough that you’ll barely notice you’re towing anything at all.

RVs are Expensive to Purchase and Own

You may also think that there’s no way you can get into the RVing world. It’s something for the rich and well-off. You need either plenty of disposable income, windfall from a surprise inheritance, or to sell all of your other possessions and commit to living full-time in your new rig.

This just isn’t the case, however. There are RVs of all shapes and sizes, from the newest and shiniest class A that costs six figures to the small and functional pop up trailer that may cost less than $10,000.

Not only that, but there’s always the option to rent your RV whenever you want to travel. You don’t actually have to own it.

Then there are used options and financing. Whatever the case, an RV is always in reach if you do your research and are honest about what you can and cannot afford.

RVs are Only for Retirees

There’s the stereotype that RVers are all retirees, men and women who finished their careers, sold everything that couldn’t fit in their RV, and now travel the country full-time in an RV.

There’s nothing stopping young adults, working professionals, or even families from taking to the road in an RV. Modern RVs are packed with all the features that you would expect to have at home, so there’s little reason to wait until you’re retired for an outing in an RV.
