Save money on fuel with RVshare delivery

Hillary White, RVshare’s Public Relations Manager, tells us how campers are saving money on fuel by using their RV delivery service: “At RVshare, bookings continued to increase in line with seasonal expectations in March, despite rising fuel prices, many travelers are considering having their RV delivered to a campground of their choice or targeting trips closer to home to save money on fuel. are on track to cover 9% fewer kilometers per trip than trips booked in February.

With RV travel, groups and families create memories through the time they spend together and not so much because of how far they venture from home. The average RV ride is about 300 miles, and the average RV runs at 10 miles/gallon. So, with fuel prices up $2 a gallon from last year, an RV trip will cost $60 more this year. While this increased cost is certainly a consideration for groups and families taking RV trips this year, RV trips continue to be a high value travel option compared to flights, cruises and other travel options. travel.

Explore your own backyard

Local trips are economical, but they don’t have to be boring. Chances are there’s a beautiful state park, beach, or cool landmark within a few hours of where you live. Exploring your own backyard has other benefits as well. Not only do you save money at the pump, but it’s also eco-friendly. Sometimes you can spend an entire day getting where you’re going, but planning a trip nearby means you can get away quickly, even if it’s just for the weekend.

Plus, having an RV delivered is much easier to plan than coordinating flights, hotels, etc. There is also always the possibility of renting a stationary motorhome. That means you stay in the motorhome wherever it’s parked, whether it’s a campground or other nice lot or near a popular event.
