The two booking platforms have launched “All-in-One” bookable packages for “celestial seekers,” including a camping spot and fully equipped RV that is set up ahead of guests’ arrival.
RVshare said its internal insights reveal a 324% increase in bookings for the weekend of April 8 compared to Memorial Day weekend 2024, which is historically the kickoff to the camping season.
The RV camping packages start at $749 a night and extend guests with a premium campsite reservation at one of the 180-plus Spot2Nite campground locations along the path of totality. A travel trailer that sleeps up to six, made available from RVshare’s inventory of over 100,000 RV rentals, is also included.
Ranging from Texas to Maine, guests will be able to choose their preferred campground that will be outfitted with an RV rental from the area. These elevated packages feature access to full hookups including power, water and waste servicing, as well as fresh linens, bedding, towels and other amenities in their selected RVs. Additionally provided is parking for one vehicle at the designated campsite location, along with additional campground amenities, varying by location.
According to RVshare’s 2024 Travel Trend Report, the 2024 solar eclipse is drawing a crowd and casting quite the shadow on the travel landscape. Survey insights reveal that 78% of Americans are planning to view the eclipse this coming April, and 53% are considering traveling to do so. Over half of travelers also claimed that they are very likely to rent an RV for a long weekend to experience a rare natural event, which RVshare and Spot2Nite said its packages can help to achieve.
All reservations can be made through Spot2Nite, where renters can browse along the eclipse path, filter by location, select a campground of their choice and book their spot and accompanying RV all in one simple booking experience.
