5 reasons to hop on an RV vacation in Canada this year

Aug 4 2020, 4:26 pm

Travelling abroad this summer has become difficult due to the unprecedented times that we’re currently facing, but this gives Canadians time to explore our own provinces. And it’s put RV vacations on the map.

RVing offers local travellers a way to discover all the beauty that Canada has to offer while also staying safe and comfortable.

There are a few reasons why this type of vacation is suitable for 2020, but we’ve compiled a list to tell you why you may want to try it this year.

1) You can stay within provincial guidelines and travel comfortably and safely

If your original summer vacay plans were cancelled, this type of trip will offer you a safe alternative to travel. You can even make your trip a whole lot easier by letting other companies help you plan your itinerary. Companies like CanaDream offer pre-planned trip itineraries that you can follow along with to make your trip simple and take away a lot of the stress that comes with planning. Their Canada Trip Planner allows you to select the region you wish to travel to, the duration of your trip and the season that you will be travelling in, to create a vacation that will perfectly fit your RV travel aspirations.

2) You can rough it in luxury

An RV travel experience really offers the best of both worlds. You can sleep under the stars but also enjoy all the home comforts that an RV brings. Hungry in the middle of the night? Microwave yourself a snack. You don’t even need to leave to shower and you can wake up each day in a different part of the country.

3) You can stay in multiple places on your vacation–but only have to unpack once

Let’s be honest, unpacking is not the greatest part of a vacation. Well, when you travel in an RV, you only need to unpack once. Even though chances are you’ll be visiting multiple places, you don’t need to worry about stopping and unpacking at each destination. You’ll be able to come back to the RV every night with everything already unpacked and ready for your next adventure.

4) You can escape the crowds and get close to nature

On an RV vacation, you can really get outdoors and explore whatever your heart desires. Whether you want to bike, hike or paddle, an RV has space for all of your equipment and can access Canada’s multitude of lakes, mountains, forests and beaches. Not to mention wineries and farms. It really is the perfect way to adventure exactly like you’ve dreamed.

5) Pets can come too

Normally when travelling, we have to leave our furry friends behind but now, they can adventure with you. Your pets are probably especially used to having you around and it sucks to leave them behind while you’re out exploring, so why not bring them along for the ride?

Note: While local parks, shops, and events are reopening, public health officials are reminding individuals to monitor their health for signs and symptoms of COVID-19. And if you’re not feeling well, they recommend staying home at this time. If you decide to go out, maintain the six-feet physical distancing guidelines. If travelling within province, follow provincial guidelines. 

Stay safe out there, Canada!
