GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - The newest living trend in Michigan is hitting the road, literally.
As young professionals try to make more out of less, RV living has become a prime choice. Coupling all the amenities you’re typically used to: electricity, Wi-Fi, full bathrooms and kitchens – it’s the obvious choice for many.
