It has been a tough year for most people around the globe. The impact of COVID-19 has been felt in many different ways, by the majority of the world’s population. Yet we know that soon enough, travelers everywhere will be champing at the bit for a fun, unique, and relaxing adventure.

Ordinarily, we wouldn’t begin booking 2021 RV vacations until September. However, experts are predicting that RV travel will see a quick rebound and expansion once things begin to return to “normal.” RV rentals are already on the rise: Earlier this month, RVShare disclosed a staggering 650 percent increase in their rental bookings since April. They also shared that 65 percent of their travelers plan to visit a national park in the next three months. The New York Times recently reported that “Road trips are a huge opportunity… to help jump-start the economy. That sense of freedom with personal controls will be ideal for people who want security.”

So, what do we recommend for those wanting to tour a national park in a recreational vehicle in 2021? Book now—before every campsite gets reserved. 

We know it seems early, but data is showing that 2021 could be a record year for national park. Because millions of folks will be unable to travel this summer, demand will be extraordinarily high for RV rentals and campsites next year.
