Typically, when we think about taking a road trip, we’re thinking about summer vacation. We may have visions of spending time in the sun with family while the kids are out of school. But don’t discount travel during the winter holidays!
Here are some fun advantages to winter travel in an RV from the team at DuraFlap:
Advantage #1: You’ll get yourself and your family out of the house during an otherwise dreary part of the year. Chances are, no one is asking to play outside in the rain and snow, and far too many hours might be getting spent in front of the tv or with a video game. Get everyone out of the house and spending time together in your cozy, warm RV. The best part? You can even take your furry friends with you.
Advantage #2: You won’t need to worry about decorating your home for the holidays or getting it ready for guests. Take your holiday celebration on the road! It’s far easier to add some holiday charm (and maybe even a tiny Christmas Tree) to your RV and spend your time enjoying the sights and bonding with your family instead.
Advantage #3: The whole family can enjoy “better” weather conditions than you have back home! Whether you’d prefer to be spending time in the snow around a warm campfire or relaxing in the sun next to the beach, your RV can transport you and your family to the environment you enjoy most over the holidays.
Advantage #4: Save money with a winter road trip. Many campgrounds are far less crowded during the winter months and often the cost to stay at campsites is cheaper. Your family will have peace and quiet during your stay and your pocketbook won’t take as much of a hit.
Advantage #5: There are fewer bugs to bother you during the winter months! Spiders, mosquitos—all of those warm-weather critters—they are all hibernating deep in the ground. You won’t smell like bug spray on this road trip!
