In many ways, celebrities are just like us. Some even love the RV life. Exploring the great outdoors with a tiny house on wheels appeals to the famous and everyday traveler.
We’ll look closely at why RVing is popular and why celebrities like it. Then we’ll reveal ten stars who RV and how they prefer to travel.
Let’s get started!
Why Is RVing So Popular?
RVing has been one of America’s favorite modes of travel since the 1950s. It allows people to bring a hotel on wheels nearly anywhere, exploring the country and enjoying outdoor adventures.
From vans to fifth wheels and large class A motorhomes, people travel in all types of RVs. You can stay in national parks, state parks, beachside campgrounds, luxury RV resorts, and more.
This is what RVing looked like in the 1960’s!
What Do Celebrities Like About RV Life?
Celebrities like to RV for all the same reasons other people travel with RVs. However, there’s a bonus. They can fly under the radar by staying in campgrounds off the beaten bath or boondocking.
Some celebrities use their RV for an office when on set. Since they’re not as concerned about whether their rig can fit in campgrounds, they prefer more luxurious and customized options. For example, Will Smith has a massive two-story motorhome!
