More people may be looking for a cheaper getaway right now as Utahns work to "rebound" from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

Since COVID-19 spread across the United States, RV rentals have been booming.

The CEO of RVshare says people are looking for ways to spend time with close friends and family while getting out of the house.

And with low gas prices nationwide and the company's strict cleaning protocols, a house on wheels may be a safer and cheaper option than a flight to a big tourist destination.

“Seventy-seven percent of people are still planning to take their summer vacations, but 84 percent of people are going to take their vacations closer to home in a drive-to way. They're not going to get on an airplane," CEO Jon Gray said. “If you're planning to pick up an RV ... [but] you don't really know where the great campgrounds are, the owners are an amazing resource."

Whether you're renting or loaning, RVshare says it's a resource to connect the camping community.
