It’s a dream of many and pursued by few: Traveling across America, living in place to place, and meeting the people of this varied and diverse country while in the comfort of a personal mobile home. The benefits of this kind of life are numerous. Stories will be told later of living near the Grand Canyon or fishing in the Great Lakes. It is a life without many restraints, full of people and beautiful locations.

Those looking to travel across American have different options. Some prefer quick trips, with hotel rooms or camping as the living arrangements. But those who plan to live a traveling lifestyle may consider getting a recreational vehicle, due to the efficiency and comforts of those mobile homes.

Recreational vehicles or RVs are a popular option for many. The Recreational Vehicle Industry Association estimates that there are 30 million RV enthusiasts nationwide, which includes RV renters. More than 11% of U.S. households headed by 35-54 year old men and women own an RV. The pull of course is simple: There are more than 16,000 public and private RV campgrounds nationwide, making it easy to roam for weeks or months at a time.

The RV industry employs more than a quarter million Americans and generates $37.5 billion in revenue. There are more than 12,000 RV businesses nationwide and these can include the RV superstore, the RV parts store, and the used RV store. Financially, there is an option for most Americans to purchase and maintain an RV.

At the top of the line in RVs is the luxury RV. An example of a company that designs and builds luxury RVs is Airstream. Airstream trailer models have features that give the trailers modern and sleek feels. They include leather seats, wood paneling, porcelain toilets, LED televisions, air-conditioning, and blu-ray players.

Like other RV companies, the Airstream trailer models range in price and in features. The lowest price point for the travel trailers is the coach, which starts at approximately $45,000. The highest price point is the land yacht, which starts at approximately $146,000. But for many, the luxury is worth the price. The United States Air Force, for instance, uses Airstream trailers to transport American officials around the world.

The key to purchasing any recreational vehicle, whether that vehicle is within the Airstream trailer models or other models from other lines like the Jayco Eagle Premier, think about what exactly you need in a recreational vehicle. There are those that are motorized (called motorhomes) and those that are towed behind the vehicle (called towables).

The joy of roaming across the United States is unparalleled for many. Having the right recreational vehicle that meets your price points and offers you the functionality that you need to enjoy your time traveling is important. Some offer the luxury of rich, modern existence, while others may have just the basic functionality. Find the right one for you.
