Four Reasons You Should Take An RV Camping

Camping is one of mankind's greatest past times.  What is it about camping that makes it so universally fun and exciting?  Is it the clean air and gentle breeze of the outside world?  Or is it the concept of roughing it, and getting back in touch with nature that's so appealing?  Whatever it is, don't underestimate the importance of taking some technology with you.  Consider four reasons why an RV might be ideal for your next camping trip.


1. For Emergencies

You can always set up a tent outside and have the RV parked in a safe place nearby.  This will allow you access to your home so you can grab anything you might need from the modern day world.  Important emails, favorite TV shows, messages from family-are all available with satellite technology in medium to large size RVs.


2. For Bad Weather

If there's a thunderstorm, you're stuck in your tent, which could easily blow away with the strong winds.  Even a small motor home or trailer can weigh over a ton.  Unless there's a threat of tornadoes (in which you'd have to exit any vehicle) an RV will keep you dry and safe.  Camping in the summer?  Then if someone in the family gets overheated, an air-conditioned room is just a short walk away.


3. For Comfort

You don't go camping to be uncomfortable-you go camping for more comfort.  It allows you the chance to get reacquainted with nature and enjoy the comfortable surroundings.  But there's no reason why you can't sleep in your comfortable bed, make yourself some coffee and shower every morning.  Having these modern day amenities nearby won't prevent you from roasting marshmallows or enjoying the night sky.  It will just make the trip that much more fun.


4. For Protection

A tent can't protect you from bears, angry campers you've crossed and deadliest of all, little mosquitoes.  Protect yourself with a sturdy RV.  If you're deep in the woods you can always retreat into the unit and lock the door-remember that RVs are literally houses on wheels.  Afraid some obsessed camp counselor is stalking you?  Have your phone, Internet connection and GPS (Global Positioning System) ready.  Finally, if you just need to get away from all those bloodthirsty mosquitoes, take a shower inside your RV and cool off before going back into battle. 


Having an RV can only offer comfort and protection on your camping trip.  Bring the tent, but be sure and bring your home right along with it.
