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.
