An RV, also referred to as a campervan is a vehicle that propels itself on its own. It provides accommodation for both sleep and transport. The term Campervan mainly indicates vans fitted out, most often with a coach-built body to be used as a source of accommodation.
Let’s Talks about why people should use an RV instead of hotels in the era of corona:
1- It helps you perform social distancing
RV is the ultimate way to maintain a safe distance from people. You don’t have to hire a cab to travel around and also don’t have to worry about the unhygienic room and bathroom of the hotels. RV will keep you isolated from people while you can enjoy your trip as well.
2- You can eat cheaply in campervans
After the spread of this lethal coronavirus, the world was shifted to a total lockdown. This has affected the usual business, and forced people to increase the prices of everything, and it will take time for restaurants to return to normality. Since you have a camper van, you would have all the freedom to prepare a good meal, and it would be of your own choice, which is the best part.
3- Freedom to enjoy anything
You would have the freedom to move anywhere and go anywhere you want in comparison to hotels. Hotels restrict free movement as you are stuck in a room with a bed and a tv whereas you can go out of the camper van and enjoy nature of your own will at any time anywhere.
4- Health and Personal Hygiene:
Personal hygiene is one of the most important things if you are going on a trip in the era corona. Hotels aren’t trustworthy on a hygiene basis, and if you look at your RV, you don’t have to worry about it at all. Of course, it isn’t spacious, but it’s a lot better than the washrooms of hotels that are visited by different people every day.
5- Physical activities
Your RVs allow you to perform physical activities as in hotels you are trapped in a room, and another factor that comes to mind is that in hotels everything is given to you at your room’s doorstep and that doesn’t allow you to do things on your own and learn about stuff such as the culture of any other country. If you use an RV, it will help you do things on your own. Not only that, but it will also boost your confidence that you don’t have to be dependent, and you will be assured of that.
Lastly, during this global pandemic people are also becoming a victim of depression and anxiety and to avoid that you don’t want to hear about the situation of the world as you would like to relax in. RV will help you with that.
Things to look for while buying an RV:
Buying an RV is a big investment, and you have to make sure that you are investing in the right vehicle. Your home on wheels should be able to drive you anywhere without hesitation because if it broke down in the middle of the journey, you might need to put some effort in order to put it back on the road.
Before buying your vehicle, make sure to analyze the worth of the RV you are looking to buy. The price of the RV drops significantly once it leaves the dealer’s lot. A close inspection of the RV will help you to get an estimate of the value of the RV. If you don’t have much experience with the RVs, you can call in your friend or family member for help. If you don’t, you can consider bringing an RV dealer or a paid repair technician with you for the inspection. From the steering wheel to the lock of the bathroom, everything needs to be inspected.
Make sure the floor is not damaged, the exterior does not have problems, the tires are in good condition, and the RV has a complete history of maintenance.
A test drive will also help you to analyze the condition of the RV.
If you are going to repair any part of it, make sure you discuss with the buyer the cost of any part or accessory, if it’s expensive, the RV old owner may suggest discounting his original price.
All and All, buying or renting an RV is the best decision you can make during this pandemic. Not only will it help you save on the expensive hotels and cab fares during your travel but also help you to maintain distance from people and to keep yourself and your family safe.
