Benefits of RVing in the Spring

Spring is a great time to hit the road and explore . From late March to late June , the season ’ s fresh air and sunshine complement an RV vacation . Motorhomes and trailers let you enjoy the comforts of home while discovering new and exciting places . With a spring trip , you will experience smaller crowds , forgiving temperatures , fewer insects , and opportunities to save money .
Here are some benefits when considering a springtime RV vacation !
Breathe Fresh Air Spring provides the perfect conditions for being outside — not too hot or too cold . Fresh air lowers your blood pressure , reduces stress , increases energy , hones focus , improves mood , and helps you sleep .
Move Your Body and Get Some Vitamin D Shake off the winter blues and get moving . Head to a campsite where you can find plenty of exercise opportunities like hiking , biking , fishing , kayaking , bird watching , and playing . Your body will benefit from the boost of vitamin D to support your immune system and strengthen bones . Whether you sit in a chair by the lake , hike along a local trail or play card games at a picnic bench , soak in the sun as you boost your health and wellness .
Stay Comfortable and Encounter Fewer Insects
Hot summer temperatures can make the outdoors uncomfortable . Cooler spring temperatures mean you can spend time outside without worrying about the heat and enjoy fewer mosquitoes , ticks and flies . It ’ s still important to wear long pants in the woods , drink plenty of fluids , and pack sunscreen and bug spray .
Experience Lighter Crowds Lighter crowds in the spring also mean less noise and more room to spread out . Prime RV and camping sites are also more available .
See Wildlife Wildlife delights in the outdoors in the spring . This is a great opportunity to connect with nature and be entertained by wildlife . Use your photography skills to capture beautiful pictures of nature . Respect your surroundings by viewing wild animals from afar , removing garbage promptly , and locking your RV doors .
Save Money Campsite and RV rental prices are generally cheaper during the off-season . Consider borrowing or renting the equipment you use infrequently .
