If you like to travel, but enjoy even more the feeling of freedom, the solution is obvious: an RV. Long ago travelling by trailer meant giving up your comfort, nowadays this is not an issue. The ‘home on wheels’ gives you the wonderful feeling of freedom and security unique as well as all the comfort you need.
The desire for freedom, the atmosphere associated with the tailer hitched up to the back of the truck, and the smell of food cooked in the warm air of a beach campsite, are the elements that make people love this way of travelling.
No matter if the taste for travelling by RV was raised by exciting memories of arriving at the campsite when you were a child, or by the need of coming back to the roots when people where travelling free, the enthusiasm of RVers is infectious. The RV offers a return to simpler holiday pleasures.
By returning to the origins of travel trailers and RVs, you can find this way of travelling with the gypsies, and showmen who spent most of their lives in horse drawn caravans. Another historic fact for the story of trailers is that the world’s first leisure caravan was built by the Bristol Carriage Company in 1880 for Dr. W. Gordon-Stables. It was an 18 ft design, based upon their Bible Wagons, which the Doctor named “Wanderer”.
Now anybody can buy a modern RV. Of course there are different sizes, from tiny two-berth teardrops with no toilet, and only basic kitchen facilities, to large, twin-axle, six-berth 5th Wheels with all the luxuries of a four-star hotel.
In the last few years, the popularity of RVing has increased, possibly due to the excellent summer weather, the fear of travelling abroad due to worries over terrorism, large increases in house prices, and the desire to live mortgage free, or just the need for a simpler holiday and more freedom. No doubt one of the reasons for the growth in popularity of RVing has also been enhanced by the improvements in quality and facilities making RV holidays possible at any time of the year, not just summer months.
The features of a typical mid-range, modern caravan should be: Gas/Electric powered refrigerator, Gas/Electric powered stove, oven and grill, Gas/Electric powered water heater, one or more beds, some of which double-up as daytime seating, electricity supplied by battery or external hookup, toilet with removable disposal tank and flush-water tank, shower, Radio, TV aerial/satellite dish.
