With the current COVID-19 pandemic, the allure and excitement of big city life is giving way to fear and uncertainty. For all the great things that city life offers, isolation from public exposure to virus strains such as coronavirus, isn’t one of them.
Our tax dollars help provide public amenities such as subways, buses, public libraries, and grand theaters. Now those same public spaces are emptying as city dwellers retreat and isolate themselves in multi-story petri dishes, hoping the building’s air system is up to filtering the exhalations of hundreds of their closest neighbors.
Getting out of the big city has never been easier. Avoid being trapped in a metropolis with millions of others closeby. Pack up and go camp out in some of our country’s great remote places and avoid virus and disease by putting some space between you and your neighbors.
For now, RVs remain available.
Springtime is peak season for RV sales. Usually dealerships stock up during winter, knowing that spring will bring booming sales. RV Industry News reports brisk sales in 2020. It is possible the COVID pandemic could mean a short supply of RVs as folks retreat from the big cities.
For the time being, RVs are still available for sale and low interest rates and cheap fuel make this an optimal solution for bugging out to warm and safe locales. If you have not seen how nice modern RVs are, take a few minutes to check them out online.
Since it’s forecast that the pandemic could be around for quite a while, the realization that you can take your own clean hotel room with you as you travel to beautiful locations is sure to spark an already strong boom in RV travel.
Traveling by RV is literally the opposite of traveling on a cruise ship. Never get trapped in tight spaces with thousands of others. Instead, take your own mobile hotel room with you, one that you know is safe. Camping in an RV offers you access to great places with separation from others.

There are thousands of dealerships across the country where you can buy an RV. Some have great reputations, others not so much. Here are some dealers that get great reviews from their customers. If you want to get out fast, give them a call to get things arranged.
