Survey: Aussies Prefer RVing for Holiday Trips
Australians would rather take to the road in recreational vehicles than buy a holiday home, a survey has found.
Conducted by research company Pure Profile for caravan and motorhome producer Jayco Australia, the online survey quizzed more than 1,000 people with 56% saying they would rather take the mobile holiday option.
According to The Australian, the survey also found 62% believed buying an RV was a more cost-efficient option while about 50% said they would prefer to take to the road because they could meet more people.
Jayco marketing director Andrew Ryan said recreational vehicle holidays were becoming a more cost-effective option for people wanting to get out and see more of Australia.
“Purchasing an RV allows you the freedom to get out and go where you want, when you want, compared to a traditional hotel holiday,” Ryan said. “The maintenance costs are also substantially less compared to owning a holiday house, making owning an RV a more achievable dream for many Australians.”
The Jayco survey also revealed 63% of people would consider buying an RV instead of holidaying overseas with the same number indicating the cost of hotel accommodation deterred them from taking a break. Sixty-four percent said they would go on holidays more often if they owned an RV.
