According to the 2020 North American RV Consumer Survey Report, over 19,000 current and prospective RV owners are unwaveringly committed to enjoying outdoor recreation again this summer, while still practicing social distancing.
RVing enables vacationers to feel more confident and secure that they can escape the confines of the stay-at-home orders and travel somewhere fun, but also allow the release of pent-up demand and stress.
The report also discovered that while 20% of vacationers canceled travel plans that included air travel and hotel stays, over 35% have yet to cancel their vacation plans and are determined, at the very least, to go to the beach in July for a family vacation. It remains to be seen whether or not that will materialize.
Of the survey’s RV-owning demographic, 79% said they will be utilizing their RVs at least as much as last year, if not more. The survey discovered that as a result of the coronavirus lockdown, there has been an increase in RV purchases, particularly Airstreams, among millennials and younger families. 78% of prospective RV owners intend to make a purchase this year. RV travel presents a unique opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors while maintaining a responsible, social distancing environment.
In these tough times, we know many people want to do what we always do — find peace and comfort in the natural beauty of the great outdoors. Outdoor activities aren’t simply a luxury in California, it’s an important part of our daily lifestyle. Contrary to popular belief, you are allowed to venture outside during the current coronavirus crisis. Public parks and beaches may be temporarily closed to stationary activities, such as sunbathing; however, you can continue to participate in outdoor activities as long as you’re practicing social distancing.
Other family-friendly destinations for outdoor recreation, RV travel and tent camping include Campland on the Bay and Mission Bay RV Resort located in the heart of Mission Bay in San Diego.
