Luxury RV Travel

Renaissance Top Resorts to Explore This Summer

Thinking of heading off in a luxury RV this summer? The coronavirus has changed many a jetsetter’s plans, and international travel’s loss is luxury RV travel’s gain.

According to the RV Industry Association (RVIA), 46 million Americans plan to take an RV trip in the next 12 months. That’s a jump from 25 million last year. “RVs provide a great way for consumers to enjoy vacations with their families, while still adhering to social distancing policies that are likely to remain in place in some fashion moving forward,” said RV Industry Association President Craig Kirby.

But where should you go?

When you start considering locations, you probably think of Florida. After all, there are hundreds of RV parks up and down the state (not to mention in the Panhandle and the Keys!). We couldn’t create a list of luxury RV resorts—most of which have strict rules for the size, age, and condition of vehicle you can show up in—without dipping a wheel into the Sunshine State. But there is a whole country full of plush resorts where you’d be proud to park your seven-figure transportation-accommodation. Whether you want to hang out in the California desert, position yourself close to a big city like Boston or the glitz of Las Vegas, or explore the natural beauty of a more unexpected spot, you have some great options.

Motorcoach Country Club — Indio, CA 

This five-star resort in the Coachella Valley near Palm Springs is widely considered the top luxury RV resort in the country. It was recently voted the best RV resort in the country by USA Today’s readers, and it’s not hard to see why. The views are astounding, and so are the amenities, with a yacht club, miles of waterways you can navigate by boat, three swimming pools, golf courses, spa experiences, and concierge service. Stay for the night from $114 to $211, the higher of which will get you a premium lot, some with a private pool. Lots sell from $56,000 to $800,000.
