… there’s a definite “something” about an RV that has made it an increasingly popular way to vacation. The number of RV-owning households in the U.S. is projected to rise to nearly 8.5 million — a gain of 15 percent between 2001 and 2010; RV rentals have grown even faster. Today it is a $350 million a year business.

Baby boomers account for the largest segment of RV ownership, as well as the fastest-growing segment of the market. Even in a down economy, RV rentals remain popular. For example, El Monte RV and Cruise America, two of the world’s largest RV rental agencies, reported strong bookings throughout the summer, and campgrounds say they’ve seen an increase of 5 percent to 10 percent this year over 2009, which was a notably good year for the industry.

“In this economy, the affordability of RV vacations is especially attractive whether you rent or own,” says Richard Coon, president of the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association.

Ms. Schensul rented a 19-foot motorhome from Cruise America for a trip from New Jersey to Kentucky, then Indiana, and home.  Read her full article at North Jersey.com.
