Baby boomers make up a big part of the RV, or “real mobile state” market, particularly the adventuresome snowbird demographic. Being able to go wherever their hearts desire, retirees choosing the RV lifestyle have the freedom to take their homes virtually anywhere, with 55+ RV communities dotted all across the country offering the lifestyle of a traditional neighborhood. Resort-style amenities, championship golf, wait we’re talking RV park justify?
Today’s RV’s are a far cry from the campers we took our family vacations in. No longer your dad’s old Winnebago, the options available offer every luxury one would expect in a home with generous square footage, granite countertops, stainless appliances, and even hardwood flooring.

The beauty of the RV lifestyle is the ability to travel anywhere, and for someone that loves to change up their hometown every now and then, it’s the ideal way to go.
