Just sharing some RV vibes! Class A RV owners often prefer private campgrounds for the chill, but some of us also get a thrill from boondocking in scenic spots!

It’s pretty cool that Class A RV owners dig private campgrounds and also fancy those RV resorts for a more fancy camping vibe. State parks sound like a fab choice for exploring new spots and soaking in the natural beauty of different regions. Who wouldn’t love that, right?
