How Do People Use Their RVs?

What do the statistics say about how people are using their RVs? Here’s what we know:

  • The average RV owner drives around 4,500 miles each year in their RV. (University of Michigan)

  • 90% of RV-owning households report that they take at least 3 trips with their vehicle or trailer each year. This is in addition to their regular yearly vacation. (RVIA)

  • About 20% of recreational vehicle owners say that they take advantage of camping locations outside of a traditional campground, such as boondocking or staying at a Walmart. (RVIA)

  • The most popular RV vacation destination in the United States is Yosemite National Park. Over 250,000 visitors come to the park every year with their recreational vehicle. (RVIA)

 

Full-Time RVing Statistics

It’s becoming more and more popular for people to sell most of their possessions and live in an RV full time. While there haven’t been many studies on this group yet, we did find these two:

  • Nearly a half-million RV owners say they use their recreational vehicle as their primary residence. (University of Michigan)

  • Yet, according to the RV Industry Association, a million Americans live full-time in RVs. (RVIA)

RV Industry Trends Analysis

Economists believe the RV industry is a good indicator of the US’s economic health. When sales are high, wages and investments are also strong. When sales suffer, it’s a potential indicator of a recession.

For example, in 2007 (right before the recession), industry sales were down 10%, despite economic growth indicators showing a 4% growth. This could mean that the 2019 “slight decline” is a signal for another recession, but this is purely speculation.
