Travelling by camper van has always been on my bucket list – hitting the open road, being outdoors, living that beautiful boho life that calls to me from my Instagram feed. But with family and friends scattered across the globe, and a strong desire to visit them anytime I could travel, I kept putting off my big road trip plans. Until the Covid‑19 pandemic hit.
My husband and I were planning vacations with our two kids this year to Israel, Morocco and Cape Cod. But with the lockdown and restrictions on flights and border crossings – and even Canadian hotels, cottages and provincial parks off limits earlier in the summer – renting an RV close to home in Toronto was our best bet. It’s no surprise that many other families were thinking the same thing, making it a booming year for the humble RV’s popularity.
