The freedom and self-reliance that the RV travel lifestyle provides increasingly attract Chinese travelers, a report said.

“Because of the pandemic, we can’t go anywhere. Recreational vehicles give us the freedom to go anywhere,” explained Fan Lina, an RV traveler.

“We don’t need to worry about booking hotels or getting up late. It gives us a lot of flexibility and saves a lot of money.”

Last year, there were 27 million search results for RV travel on Chinese websites, which is 48 percent more than the number in 2019. The sale of recreational vehicles sets a new record, with almost 70,000 units last year.

China is now home to around 1,400 large RV camping spots. The number continues to grow. Owners of campsites have begun offering holiday packages specifically for RV travelers.

The majority of RV owners were 50 to 65 years old, based on published research. In the last two years, there has been greater interest from people aged 40 to 50.
