One of the Best RV Studies I’ve Read


Maybe not the best bedtime reading, but . . .

Though this study is probably intended more for RV park owners rather than RVers, it contains some interesting information about RVers and RV parks.

Some quotes from the study:

  • Americans currently own nine million RVs, a million more than on the road five years ago.
  • Fuel prices would have to triple to make RVing more expensive for a family of four than other forms of travel.
  • A standard RV uses only 27 gallons of water/day, whereas a household consumes 150 gallons/day.
  • Greenhouse gas accounting confirms that actual RV travel creates a lower carbon footprint than comparable air/drive/hotel vacations.
