go-rving-canada3 Go RVing Canada announced several changes to its website.

 The website has extensive resources on everything RV-related from  information on the RVing lifestyle to tips and advice for buying or renting an  RV and now includes a “Find a Campground Near You” tool and a Cost-Comparison Vacation Calendar, according to a news release.

The new Find a Campground Near You tool is an effective resource for Canadians to find that perfect wilderness campsite or campground within 100 kilometers (62 miles) of their home. The easy-to-use tool allows Canadians to enter their postal code and generates a map with links to campgrounds in their area. Canadians now have access to hundreds of Go RVing Canada member campgrounds to plan an exciting weekend escape or an extended vacation.

The Cost-Comparison Vacation Calendar drives home the affordability of RVing. Canadians can now compare the cost of traditional vacations with the affordability of RVing. Depending on the RV model, an RV holiday can save a family of four anywhere between 50% and 70% over the cost of other forms of vacation travel, including that annual trip to the cottage. An RV trip including all RV ownership costs such as leasing payments, insurance, maintenance, tires and registration, still works out to be more economical when compared to a traditional week’s vacation for a family of four, when you consider the costs of flights, car rental, hotels and eating out at restaurants.

“In today’s economic climate, Canadians are increasingly looking for ways to save money and make their recreational dollars go further,” said Go RVing Canada spokesperson Alana Fontaine. “These new online tools are efficient and incredibly ideal to assist in the planning of this summer’s vacation. Whether it’s a quick weekend away or the annual family road trip, these new tools will save Canadians time and money.”

Building upon strong attendance numbers at the many RV shows and exhibitions that took place across the country this winter, Fontaine expects many Canadians to take advantage of these new tools as more and more Canadians discover the freedom, flexibility and fun of the RV lifestyle.
