Today we’re talking about the final group of RVers—Adventure Seekers.
A little about Adventure Seeking RVers
Adventure seekers are a unique group. They enjoy heading out to wherever adventure awaits. This group is pretty diverse in its demographics. The majority of the group is over 55 years old, but 34% fall between the ages of 35 and 54 years old.
Only 50% of adventure seekers are retired, yet on average they travel an average of 200 days per year. Their vacation time is usually spent in the RV and they enjoy heading out on destination trips.
It probably won’t surprise you that this group enjoys outdoor activities. Some of their common hobbies include swimming, hiking, and canoeing.
What Adventure Seekers need in an RV
Adventure seekers need an RV that can keep up with them and get them where they want to go. While some RVers are looking for all the comforts of home in their RV, adventure seekers are more concerned about making sure their RV can keep up with them.
Since only 19% of adventure seekers travel with children, they may not need as much space as some of the other RV owner categories. Some features they may want include:
- Quality tires
- Solar power
- Built-in air compressor
- Awning and outdoor kitchen
- Garage space to bring toys (ATVs, bikes, etc.)
- Tie downs for bikes or kayaks
The exact features you will want depend on how you enjoy spending your time. For example, if you love fishing then you will want space to bring all your fishing gear along with you. If you want to get off the beaten path, then you’ll want to have solar panels.
