Report: RV'ing More Affordable This Year

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - May 7, 2009) - With the peak summer holiday season coming up quickly, a recent report by Go RV'ing Canada found that, on average, RV'ing is 50 to 70 percent less costly than a traditional vacation for four - particularly since RV prices are at an eight-year low.

That's a turnaround from recent years when high fuel prices put a crimp in plans for long RV adventures and it's music to the ears of recession-wary Canadians.

"An RV holiday is one of the best family vacation values out there this year," said Jeff Redmond, owner and general manager of Bucars RV Centre in Calgary. "Lower fuel prices this year and an abundance of local destinations makes an RV trip an affordable getaway that stretches the dollar and maximizes the family fun in challenging economic times."

The Go RV'ing Canada report also found 90% of owners agreed it's the best way to travel for families with children. Redmond encourages people to pencil the options out for themselves - considering flights or car rental, hotels and meals compared to the price range for an overnight full-service campground stay around $25 to $45.

The proximity to world-renowned venues in Southern Alberta adds to the affordability and attraction, says Redmond. Within a 200 kilometre radius there is the Rocky Mountains, lakes, trails and much western Canadian small town heritage to explore.

Redmond advises consumers to act fast, "It's never been a better time to shop. There's good inventory, and therefore, great selection at most RV dealers and the value has never been better - especially with more fuel efficient vehicles among the new model year motorhomes and diesel pushers.
