A new survey from Progressive Insurance focused on Americans living full- or part-time in their RVs examines several aspects of full-time RV living and the findings are in-line with what we’ve been seeing since hitting the road ourselves in 2016.
Results showed that half the RVers surveyed are under 45 and likely to be traveling with children. This younger demographic is drawn to full-time RV living as a way to explore the country and have adventures while working remotely. Additionally, remote-working millennials are driving the RV trend, with more of them choosing to travel with their families.
RV ownership has increased 62% over the last 20 years, with 11.2 million households owning RVs, a growth significantly driven by millennials and Gen Z. The ease of remote working and attending virtual school has made it more realistic for younger generations of people to pack up and hit the road.
54% of all RVers are now active remote workers.
However, the survey also revealed that gas prices, lack of storage space, and campground reservations are major concerns for RVers. Despite these challenges, RV living continues to grow in popularity, with most planning to continue their travels and explore the United States for the foreseeable future.
