The GoRVing.com website has a nifty little calculator that compares the cost of vacations. But it shouldn’t surprise you that RV vacations cost less than if you fly in an airplane, stay in a hotel and rent a car.
For example, according to vacation calculator, the cost of going from Detroit to Traverse City in a travel trailer is $892. In a Class C motorhome the cost is $929. Going by car and staying in a hotel is slightly more at $1,127. But when you fly there, the cost jumps to $3,032.
No matter how far you travel when comparing travel by RV vs. car, RVing saves you money in lodging and meals. Simply put, campground fees are a lot less than hotel rates, and eating meals prepared by you vs. those from a restaurant are considerably less expensive.
According to the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association — the folks behind the Go RVing campaign — an RV vacation can cost a family of four up to 59% less than other forms of travel. Extra storage space means saving on equipment rentals, too, as you can bring along the bikes, skis, kayaks, golf clubs, ATVs and more.
So RVing on a budget is made even easier because RVs roll travel, accommodations and meals into one package of double-axle goodness.
