We are nearly there with winter coming to a close… or at least that’s what the calendar says. It sure is hard to see the sunlight at the end of the tunnel when the news is full of reports about the polar vortex and extreme winter snow/cold advisories. Maybe the next wave of clear weather is your getaway cue! If so, here are some tips for finding a great destination to enjoy a warmer climate while the next winter storm takes its course.
Try looking for the usual candidates for an RV destination: Florida, California, Arizona, and Texas. Look for smaller towns if the crowds are of concern. If those seem to be a bit overdone and crowded, then perhaps you will find your destination elsewhere, like Puerto Peñasco in Sonora, Mexico. This little town on the Sea of Cortez is only about an hour south of Ajo, Arizona and is an excellent destination for RV travelers.
Still too difficult to get your RV that far through inclement weather? Maybe a two-leg trip is called for. Many RV dealerships have rental programs and some even rent new models for you to try out before buying. Others may even have a delivery service where you can have your RV rental delivered to a campsite at a specific campground or RV park. Find a dealership near one of your destinations and see what they can arrange for you.
Finally, agencies like Cruise America, Jucy, and Escape Campervans all have commercial RV rental programs for RVs and converted vans. Consider flying into a large destination city like Los Angeles or Las Vegas and renting a vehicle to drive to your destination in the warm southern sun.
