Oh, Valentine’s Day. It’s easy to get caught up in the cards, the flowers, the candy, the jewels and the gifts. But this holiday is more than that – it’s about spending time with the person or the people you care about the most. And what better way to do that than to get away from your day-to-day life, free of distraction and stress. Here are a few reasons we think an RV is the perfect way to do that.


You can camp, but in luxury.

While sitting around a fire with uninterrupted star gazing can be extremely romantic, for some people, crawling into a tent dampens the mood. With an RV, you can enjoy all the romance of being outdoors while still feeling luxurious with a clean bed and cozy linens.

Everyone can be happy with your destination.

Maybe you two have different ideas of a good vacation. You like the city, your partner likes the country. With an RV, you don’t have to choose. Spend a couple of days in the hustle and bustle, and then drive out to nature for your next stop. You don’t have to be tied to one place, or a pricey reservation. If someone isn’t satisfied with the destination, move on without worry. Keep it happy and stress-free.

You can watch the sunrise from your bed.

Spending the night in a beautiful place means you can open your windows or your door, watch the sunrise and feel the morning breeze. Sure, you could watch the sunrise from a hotel room, maybe peaking through other buildings or accompanied by the garbage truck coming down the street below you, but there is something about being surrounded by nothing and no one that makes this feel extra special.

You can completely unplug.

With an RV, you can go anywhere without worrying about whether or not you’ll have service, because you have everything you need with you in your vehicle. You can get out of town, away from all distractions. You could go somewhere without WiFi or cell service, or you could just turn your phone off. Spending time just the two of you, without distraction. You can even pack plenty of entertainment options, like a board game or a deck of cards. Allow yourself to be completely focused on one another.

You can try something new together.

Bonding over a new experience brings us closer. Whether that is trying an RV vacation for the first time, or getting adventurous by canyoneering in Utah, whitewater rafting in Colorado, or taking a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon. Even the smallest of things matter when you are doing it together.
