A record number of Canadian families are discovering the fun and flexible travel that the RV lifestyle provides and are taking advantage of continued affordability in the marketplace.

While consumer prices in most other industries have been on the increase since the end of the recession, RV purchase prices have remained stable at the record-low levels consumers have been enjoying for several years, due largely to the strength of the Canadian dollar.

“Today’s economic climate may be on the road to recovery, but Canadians are still looking for affordable travel options,” said Go RVing Canada spokesperson Alana Fontaine.  “RV vacations represent an extremely economical way for families to travel.”

Depending on the RV model, a typical family RV vacation can be up to 75 per cent less expensive per day than other forms of vacation travel.

According to a recent cost-comparison study conducted by PKF Consulting, an RV trip is shown to be more economical when compared to a traditional week’s vacation for a family of four, when you consider the costs of flights, car rental, hotels and eating out at restaurants.
