Refinery 29 ~ “ According to Outdoorsy (a trusted global recreational vehicle rental and outdoor experiences marketplace), there’s been an astonishing spike in demand for all sorts of houses-on-wheels in recent months. Amidst the pandemic, the company’s growth took off by more than 4,500% — with the majority of RV, motorhome, and camper van bookings coming from first-time users — showing that people are ready and raring to get out of their homes and hit the road.

The fact that Americans are putting on their Jack Kerouac caps this summer isn’t all that surprising during a time when flying on airplanes or staying in a hotel with other guests poses a higher risk of contracting COVID-19. Renting an RV offers control over nearly all aspects of travel and accommodation during your journey — all of which is quite appealing as the global health crisis rages on. It also allows for limited interactions with anyone outside your close-knit crew, plus the flexibility to plan an itinerary that suits each person’s comfort level. Along with being able to disinfect the surfaces of this private space as needed, rental companies like Outdoorsy are advising their vehicle owners to implement rigorous sanitation standards and follow the CDC’s cleaning guidelines before and after each booking.” ~ Refinery 29
