Family RVing La Place LA

Why do RVs appeal to so many families? Most importantly, RVs allow parents to reestablish relationships with their children by removing life’s daily distractions. On an RV trip, families are not faced with the interruptions of routine home life, yet they have all the comforts of home. RVing families are able to enjoy each other’s company and kids are free to be themselves, without the distraction of soccer practice, swim team or piano lessons.

Strengthen Family Relationships by Rving

Owning an RV also means every weekend can be a vacation, allowing quick getaways with minimal preparation and planning.

According to Christine Loomis, travel editor of Family Life magazine, author of 11 children’s books and mother of three, RV trips give families the opportunity for “do-nothing time.”

The RV provides the means to hit the road, leave the daily routine and enjoy quality time together.” Many parents also supplement their children’s learning during their RV travels. The Campfire Canvass found that 43 percent of families cite visiting a historic location for educational purposes. Science and nature centers, zoos and ...
