RV Rallies Become Popular in ‘Florida Keys’
It is well-known the Florida Keys attract recreational vehicle users from throughout the country during the nation’s winter months. But, according to a report in the Florida Keys Free Press, there is a growing trend of RVers who have started traveling together in groups of 30 of 40 to rally in the Keys during the slower months.
“They’re like traveling neighborhoods,” said Jim Saunders, who opened Key Largo’s Point of View RV Resort last year.
Graham Ricks, who lives full-time in North Carolina, has led a rally of about 30 to 40 motorcoaches to Key Largo, but it can be difficult during the tourist season in the Keys to line up 30 spots together in one place.
Ricks has long been a member of a motorhome association and an organizer of rallies.
“We go all over the country and as far north as Canada and out to Washington and California,” he said.
Ricks considered his 14-hour drive to Key Largo well worth it.
“It’s such a nice location with the shopping and the water,” he said.
Ricks plans on returning to the Middle Keys this winter as part of a solo trip with his wife. It had to be booked two years in advance, he said, noting how hard it is to find RV space in the Keys.

“There’s not a lot of RV parks compared to the demand,” he said.
