Campendium’s 2022 Camper Report, a survey based on consumers from the company’s online community, found 60% of campers are spending weekends and vacations traveling in RVs.
The report noted nearly a quarter of respondents (23%) said they were living full-time in their RVs.
“This shift in lifestyle brings a change in requirements for the campsites where couples and families may choose to camp,” the company stated.
The report found many full-time campers working remotely, Campendium stated, making reliable cellular coverage at campsites more critical than ever.
The report found campers staying at sites with full cell coverage stayed an average of 5.2 days, compared with just 3.2 days at sites without cell service.
“Campers are willing to pay more for a campsite location that offers a better cell signal,” the company stated, “allowing them to utilize their devices for working, streaming, remote learning and more.”
The report also found 60% of respondents said they preferred traveling in towable RVs, with 34% choosing to travel in motorhomes.
Campendium is part of Roadpass Digital’s portfolio of consumer apps that provide campers, RVers and road trippers with end-to-end trip discovery and planning tools. Included in the portfolio are Thor Industries-owned Togo RV and RVillage.
