3 New RV Models that Show How Millennials are Revolutionizing the Industry

Let’s be honest, millennials have caught a lot of slack from people. Their generation is stereotyped as being lazy, unmotivated, and having a sense of entitlement. But, that’s because the media attention has been on the wrong group of millennials. While there are some millennials living in their parents’ basements and working at Starbucks with loads of student debt, there are also plenty that are paving their own path.

This part of the millennial generation is challenging the status quo. They don’t want to slave away at a 9-5 job and live for the weekends. They hate the idea of waiting to really live, travel, and enjoy until retirement. Instead, they are ready for adventure. They want to work a job they love and aren’t as worried about keeping up with the Jones’ with the big fancy house and manicured lawn. In fact, many millennials aren’t about “things” at all. What they are into is experiences.

All of these things explain why RVing is the perfect fit for millennials. This generation has discovered that there is an entire world out there just waiting to be discovered and an RV will help them do just that. Over the past few years, the RV industry has seen a steady incline that they attribute to millennials jumping into the market.


What Millennials are finding:

1.  They can make money online from ANYWHERE

Millennials have discovered that they don’t have to pick a city that fits what they are looking for in order to get a job. Thanks to modern technology there are more and more people transitioning to the life of an online freelancer. They work for themselves, create their own schedule, and all they need is a laptop and Wi-Fi. That means they can do as much traveling and exploring as they want.

2. Buying an RV is more affordable than buying a house and provides freedom

It’s true that Millennials have waited longer than any other generation to enter the housing market. Many claim this is because they are carrying some hefty student loan debt. That makes it hard for them to save enough money for a down payment and then have enough to pay a monthly mortgage payment. But, many have found that RVing living is a lot more affordable than buying a starter home, and it allows them to have an adventure.

3. They don’t have to wait for retirement

There have been generations slaving hard at work just waiting for the day they can retire and start having fun. Unfortunately, some never make it to that day. Millennials aren’t about to let that happen to them. They believe that life is meant to be enjoyed. They aren’t planning on wasting life working, they are going to enjoy every moment of it.
