Go RVing Canada says that even though the summer RV travel season may be winding down, the RV travel doesn’t need to stop.
“Kids may be back in school, but the weather is still beautiful and RV getaways are still a great way to take advantage of your weekends,” said Emily Reid, Go RVing Canada’s national spokesperson. “Campgrounds are a little quieter and with the kids back to school and work weeks gearing up in the fall, mini RV holidays are a perfect way to relax and unwind on the weekend.”
More Canadians than ever before are discovering the joys of the RV lifestyle. In fact, 67 percent of RVs are owned by people who are under the age of 55. Young families are choosing RV vacation because of the flexibility it offers. With budgets being tightened across the country, Canadians are recognizing the freedom that comes from cooking your own meals and staying closer to home in an RV.
Go RVing Canada recently found that RV sales are up a strong 13 percent in Canada. Some provincial figures indicate even stronger sales, with Alberta seeing a 42 percent increase for the first quarter of 2012.
“There are so many great activities available on fall weekends from music festivals to county fairs,” added Reid. “It’s so easy to hop in your RV and gather your family and friends for a weekend everyone will remember.”
