Benefit of RV Ownership

OKEMOS, MI--(Marketwire - September 21, 2007) - Recreation vehicles (RVs) offer a number of great benefits to those who own them. Today's RVs also provide travelers with the comforts and convenience of a "home away from home" as they participate in activities and hobbies of interest to families, not limited to camping.

RVs make the traveling experience less exhausting and more enjoyable for the whole family. Families who frequently vacation by RV report that it helps improve family communication and promotes togetherness and family bonding. An RVIA research survey found that 95 percent of adults who camped as children said it had a positive influence on their adult lives.

For busy families who want to escape the stresses of everyday life, owning an RV can make every weekend a vacation. RVs are packed with essentials -- bathrooms, kitchens, and sleeping accommodations -- providing a convenient way to travel with all the comforts of home. Plus, RVs have all the "extras" like TVs, stereos, air conditioning and even computer stations and game systems.

RVers can enjoy beaches, parks and popular tourist attractions whenever they want. With the new sport utility travel trailers and motorhomes, RV travelers can easily haul their ATVs, snowmobiles, motorcycles or other outdoor vehicles on board. In addition to travel, camping and outdoor recreation, RVs are being used year-round for a variety of purposes, including shopping, tailgating at sporting events, pursuing interests such as auto races and antique shows, and many other hobbies.

Explore the different types of RVs you can purchase to accommodate your budget, needs and tastes at the 18th Annual Fall Detroit Camper & RV Show, October 3-7, 2007, at the Rock Financial Showplace in Novi, Mich. (on Grand River, one mile west of Novi Road). 2008 RVs will be on display with special closeout pricing offered on 2007 models. Booths featuring parts and accessories, campground information, RV financing and RV rentals will be set up to make this the complete RV show experience.

The show is sponsored by the Michigan Association of Recreation Vehicles and Campgrounds (MARVAC), a member organization representing all aspects of the camping and RV industries. Consumers can call 517.349.8881 or visit marvac.org for additional information on the RV show.
