Glamorous camping, otherwise known to the regulars as “glamping,” is a fun alternative for all you outdoor enthusiasts who have long graduated from your Girl and Boy Scouts days, but still crave an experience where you can comfortably be one with nature.

What most people don’t realize is that glamping takes camping to the next level, especially if planned around a road trip in an RV. What awaits is an affordable and adventurous travel alternative for your girlfriend getaway, a weekend with the fellas, or a way for you to explore Mother Nature with your kids; all while enjoying the comforts (and maybe even a few extra perks) of home.

An RV or “recreational vehicle” includes a broad category of trailers (high end to budget friendly) that are designed for a more relaxed accommodation on the road without having to deal with some of the challenges (bugs, rocks, allergies, standing water…you get the picture) of actually being outside.

If you like being in control of your travels, then RVing is a great choice for you.

You decide when and where to go and what to take with you. There’s no pressure to catch a flight, stand on long airport check-in lines or deal with baggage limits and fees. In fact, you are technically your own security check. Your schedule and itinerary are completely up to you. Since you’re the one behind the wheel, you can make as many unplanned stops along the way as you want if something sparks your interest or stay at a particular location longer than you originally planned. You can even hit the road early depending upon what you want to do. The choice is all yours.
