It’s time to hit the road in style and save money on your next vacation.
Renting an RV is easy and less expensive than hotels, flights, and rental cars
The all-inclusive RV Rental market is ready for you. A breakthrough new way to rent an RV at the world’s largest RV rental platform, Outdoorsy is making this summer vacation look even more attractive.
Whether you rent an RV to drive to a memorable destination like Disney’s Fort Wilderness Park in Orlando, get your breath taken away at the sight of waking up next to the Grand Canyon, Outdoorsy now offers “delivered” RV Rentals where you never have to lift a finger. Instead, you rent an RV and have it dropped off and set up to perfection wherever you want to vacation.
New Trend: RVs delivered to your favorite spot
Nearly 60% of Outdoorsy listings offer “delivery” of RVs, motorhomes, and trailers to some of the most sought-after destinations in the world.
Even if you choose to drive an RV, you will spend less on average on an RV rental including fuel costs during these times when gas prices are at their highest. That’s because RV prices have remained relatively stable with only an average $5 increase over last year. On the other hand, hotels are up as much as 40%. Flights will set you back 20% more than in 2021.
First-time RV renters are getting younger too. That’s largely because of the ease of renting virtually any ready-to-go RV for any budget. The idea that you can customize your vacation and choose from thousands of locations to do a turn-key RV rental makes for an effortless vacation glamping in style.
To find the perfect RV delivered and ready, search outdoorsy.com and select “Delivery”.

Tech for Summer 2022 RV road trips
Best way to boost your reception
PC Magazine called it Best RV Cell Phone Signal Booster and what I know is that it’s the go-to cellular booster that delivers faster data speeds, better call clarity, and more reliable voice and 5G/4G LTE data speeds on the open road. Extends your cell phone coverage for your safety when traveling and to stay connected to family and friends You can quickly access maps, weather, and news apps. Everyone can email, work, even go to zoom school lessons and stay connected with loved ones. The power it brings to stream music and video from remote areas is really the top RV selling point. Let’s face it, some of the most magical destinations are not necessarily near populated areas with multiple cell phone towers. The Fusion2Go 3.0 RV boosts the weakest cell signal and is easily shared anywhere inside the RV.
Best Chairs for Camping
Budget Choice: Coleman Camping Chair with Built-in 4 Can Cooler
With each chair coming in under $30 or $40 (depending on your color choice), you’ll be shocked at how many features this portable chair comes with. Each chair does come with a carrying bag and a cushioned seat, but the pocket space is what makes this one of our top picks for a camping chair. One arm comes with a cup holder and side pocket for your book, phone, snacks, or other small accessories. The other arm has an attached built-in cooler that can hold 4 standard cans and keep them chilled. The cooler is lined and comes with a zipper closing so you can even throw in some ice cubes or use it for snacks.
This oversized chair features a side table which makes all the difference for your outdoor seating. The side table has an included cup holder, and the other arm of the chair includes a side pocket for any smaller items you want to keep nearby. The director chair holds up to 300 pounds and has a mesh back to let your body breathe when you’re outside in the heat. My favorite feature is the water-resistant material used for the seat – so if you spill an ice cube or drink, cleanup is easy and quick. It does also fold in half for flatter storage.
This portable rocking chair is the perfect choice for a camping chair for any age. The chair folds and unfolds from a flat position, and instantly becomes a rocking chair wherever you set it up. The GCI Rocker includes a cup holder and padded arm rests, and will deliver smooth rocking on almost any surface you set it up on.
Best for portability: ALPHA CAMP Oversized Padded Camping Chairs
This is our choice for the best chair that is both portable AND comfy. Check out the wide padded seat – it has a 350 lb capacity and an extra-wide moon shade back that adjusts to your body for maximum comfort. There’s a small cup holder attached, and an included carry bag that the chair folds up into.
Best Portable Chargers for RV trips
Jackery’s Solar Generator is a great option for a backup power supply and can be especially handy on any outdoor trip. Powered entirely by two SolarSaga 100 solar panels, this generator is much quieter than typical gas generators. Thanks to the 1000 wattage, you can use this Jackery Solar generator to power your bigger electronics including a full-size fridge, a TV, a grill, a coffee machine, and more. You can also power up to 8 devices. It includes 3 AC outlets, USB A & C outlets, and more.
This is a more portable option for charging that is also solar powered, so you don’t need to use up your RV’s power to charge your phone or smaller devices. While not waterproof, it does have a silicone USB cover so the device will stay protected from water or dust. You can recharge it using either the 4 solar panels or by plugging it in, and the handiest feature of all: a flashlight.

Best activities for camping
If you get stuck inside during your trip, this electric heater is the perfect way to make s’mores from inside your RV or anywhere you have a power outlet. It includes four compartment trays for your marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate. It comes with two roasting forks, but you can bring your own forks or order extra “marshmallow sticks” on Amazon. The s’mores maker doesn’t use any fire, just normal electricity, so it’s safer for your family as well.
If you already have plans to start a fire and make s’mores, be sure you have the coolest camping gadget for dessert. These roasting forks extend out for safer use and automatically rotate so you’ll get an even cook on that s’more.
