An RVing renaissance took over America in 2020, and there’s no looking back — an entire generation of travelers has realized life is better when “home” has wheels. After all, you can do so much more when you hit the road in an RV: you can connect deeper to nature; you can have that dream trip on a budget; you can bring the whole crew (and the pup!); you can zoom all over the map; or you can slow down. Simply put, you can travel different.

Matador has teamed up with Camping World to help you do just that. Let the video and article series below inspire you — not only for your next RV trip, but to see the many ways the world opens up when you’ve got your home on wheels.
