What is this going to do to campsite availability

This article absolutely blew me away. There is this huge boom in RVing going on out there.

https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/th...=zh_newsletter

I've heard more and more stories about people having to get reservations up to a year in advance. The number of RV parks isn't expanding near as fast as the number of rigs.

Will there be a crunch in campsites?

I want to agree with Old Biscuit, but not sure. I do believe that there will be many who decide to "ditch" the RV, ir basically quit using it, but there will be many who keep on RV'ing. Just don't know how things will line up. 4 years from now, we should know.

Oh it won’t take 4 yrs. I figure by all indicators 1 1/2 max, then there’s going to be something that will make ‘08 look like a Christmas gift. Then you’ll be able to just walk up , pick your spot, might even be able to name your price.

Until then going to be a pita.

We have already made all of our reservations for next winter. The more popular spots are already full. Had to go to our third or fourth choices in some locations.

Download the most recent KOA camping report for all the camping/RV statistics you could ever want. I wouldn't look for the camping situation to get anything but more crowded in the future. This does not appear to be a blip but is likely a trend. This ain't 2008.

Actually, for most RV'ers, cost of fuel pales in comparison with DEPRECIATION in terms of cost of ownership.


With today's inflated prices and easy financing, there will be a very large number of owners who are very, very, very upside down in a year or two.


And, a lot of "less than diligent/knowledgeable" banks will be having a lot of repos in which they are tens of thousands of dollars upside down.

Here's My Better Half's Opinion

If you are an experienced RV' r you know this takes work, especially weekenders. Pack the camper, set up and a day and half later pack up, go home, unpack and clean. We equate this to the pandemic trend where everyone ran out and got dogs to keep them company at home. Now folks are starting to go back to work and the dogs are going back to shelters or being abandoned.
All of sudden they find out that it is not as glorious as it seems and are facing monthly payments for something sitting in the yard or worse yet at paid storage.
Yep, I say two years and about the same time as I retire, I will start looking for my retirement motorhome.

!-2 years. Then I'll have many to choose from. Many new owners went in already upside down. Banks are going to take it in the shorts.

We just bought a pretty new (2020) class C a couple months ago knowing the prices weren't going anywhere but up in the near future. We wanted to get our feet wet with an RV, and we didn't want to lose a couple more years waiting for the price bubble to burst. But, to that extent, we were also thinking that when it's time to upgrade in a few years we will be able to (hopefully) get something a little bigger and newer for about the same value. Well, about the same monthly payment at least.


But to add to the original comment, we had no idea how hard it would be to find a reserve-able camping spot anywhere within a 5 hour drive, which is pretty much what we need because neither the wife or I can just hop in a rig and leave work behind for weeks on end.

I’ve been thru the previous boom.
It will bust, just wait.
Many up coming economic events from energy inflation to show up just like last time.
It’s unstoppable now.
It will not be pretty in every market including housing & RVs
