HOUSTON (CW39) — If you need a vacation, but want to avoid hotels and rental cars, join the 46 million people expected to take trips in Recreational vehicles next year. The COVID-19 pandemic has sent RV sales and rentals skyrocketing.

According to a Kampgrounds of America study, 34% of US and Canada-based campers say road trips will be the safest form of travel during the pandemic. The RV Industry Association also found that because of COVID-19, 20% of US residents surveyed have become more interested in RV travel compared to flying, cruises, tent camping and rental stays.
