6 Reasons Family Road Trips Are Absolutely The Best With An RV

June 7, 2019 Updated June 23, 2020


Anyone who’s attempted a road trip with their children will tell you it can be rough because kids aren’t known for their traveling skills. For starters, they all seem to come standard with a bladder the size of a peanut and an attention span to match. Road trip activities typically include fighting with your sibling, requesting bathroom breaks every 20 miles, and asking incessantly, “Are we there yet?”

A few hours in a cramped car can feel like an eternity, and getting out to “stretch your legs” isn’t nearly enough to save your sanity when the kids have been complaining nonstop in the back seat. But as it turns out, family road trips can actually be really fun, and all you need to make it happen is an RV. Don’t have one? No worries, you can rent one and start planning a road trip your family will be talking about for years to come.

Here are all the reasons we love RV trips (even with kids!):

1. No More Truck Stop Restrooms

We’ve all been forced to use a public restroom that is beyond gross, but hey, when you gotta go, you gotta go (especially if you’re a kid). When you travel in an RV, you don’t have to worry about stumbling into dirty public restrooms because there’s a clean one onboard!

2. Pets Like Road Trips Too!

If you’re like me, you hate leaving your furry family members behind when you go on vacation. Well, now you don’t have to, because unlike many hotels, pets are totally welcome in your RV.

3. Kids Can’t Fight When They Can’t Reach Each Other

OK, this is only half true. Technically, kids can always find a way to annoy their siblings. However, there is so much space in an RV that your kids don’t have to be anywhere near each other.

4. It’s Basically a Rolling House

The best thing about home is the creature comforts, like your coffee pot, microwave, kitchen sink, or even the refrigerator. Well, an RV has all those things, and the plush surroundings are much cozier than a hotel. (Did we mention there’s a sofa and a bed to stretch out on too? Because there is.)

5. Snacks at the Ready!

And because there is an ever-present refrigerator, that means snacks and drinks are always available. You can load up with all the things you love, because unlike car travel, RVs offer plenty of space.

6. Change Your Plans at a Moment’s Notice

You are truly in charge of your trip when traveling in an RV. If you change your mind about your destination, just hang a left! This is your trip, and flexibility is truly one of the best parts.
