A new year has begun, and that means it’s time for new adventures. Many of us are thinking about what we will do with 2022, and others are reflecting on the lessons learned in 2021. Some of the things we’ve been thinking about are the things we learned about the RV market in 2021.
You see, 2021 was a unique and exciting year in the world of RVing. We saw more people than ever hit the road full-time, many families purchased RVs for weekend camping, and the demand for RVs went through the roof.
Here are some of the things we learned from the wild ride 2021 gave us folks in the RV industry.
People Long for Adventure
People want to go on adventures. For the most part, they cannot stand to be cooped up at home for long periods of time. Unfortunately, the lockdown of 2020 meant there was a huge amount of sitting around at home. When those lockdown rules started to ease up, people were on the lookout for a safe way to get away.
Enter the RV: a home on wheels that allows you to get out and adventure while avoiding many of the places germs might lurk.
Where There’s a Will, There’s a Way
Another thing that a lot of people who are new to the RV world learned? Where there’s a will, there’s a way. Honestly, most of us long-term RVers have known this for a long time. That’s why we are able to be out in the world exploring.
That said, the pandemic made remote work and schooling from home more prevalent than ever. The vast majority of people were forced to telecommute and homeschool, at least for a short time. This opened the eyes of many and made them realize just how possible it is to be free of those things that tie so many people down.
The individuals who realized freedom was within their grasp and that they could follow their wanderlust? They jumped at the opportunity to travel all the time. This is why we saw so many full-time RVers launch in the year 2021.
