How the Humble RV Became a Traveling American’s Dream Come True

The Bustle Digital Group describes itself as a Gen X and Millennial-focused media outlet that operates through nine brands, one of them Inverse. The age groups it targets are, by all accounts, ones that are increasingly turning to the RV for their travel plans. Stephen J. Bonner has this report.

Kyle Boreing’s 2020 family vacation was all planned out at the beginning of the year.

The family’s first trip with their kids, 13-, 11- and 9-year-old boys, would bring them to Disney World, where they’d enjoy a character dinner, among other activities.

“We put down the deposit, had everything ready to go, then everything shut down,” Boreing tells Inverse. “Between March and June, we crossed our fingers and hoped to make the Disney trip. But as time went on, it was clear we weren’t going to be able to do the things we wanted, so we decided to take the refund.”

But the Boreings would still take their 2020 vacation, just not as they originally imagined it. In July, the family flew from Cincinnati to Arizona and rented an RV to visit that state’s and Utah’s famous parks, including the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park, Monument Valley, Capitol Reef, and Arches.

Renting an RV “gives you an opportunity to hit the road and see things you wouldn’t see,” Boreing said. “One of the perks of an RV is we don’t have to stop to take a bathroom break or when someone gets hungry. We can throw something in the microwave or someone can go to the bathroom. You’re pretty much self-contained.”
