55+ Homes

Get Behind the Wheel of Your Next Adventure

May 3, 2021 • Admin

You hear of people saying that once they retire they plan to sell everything, and take their golden years out on the open road. Sounds like an extreme dream right? Baby boomers make up a big part of the RV, or “real mobile state” market, particularly the adventuresome snowbird demographic. Being able to go wherever their hearts desire, retirees choosing the RV lifestyle have the freedom to take their homes virtually anywhere, with 55+ RV communities dotted all across the country offering the lifestyle of a traditional neighborhood. Resort-style amenities, championship golf, wait we’re talking RV park justify?

Today’s RV’s are a far cry from the campers we took our family vacations in. No longer your dad’s old Winnebago, the options available offer every luxury one would expect in a home with generous square footage, granite countertops, stainless appliances, and even hardwood flooring. Resembling high-end apartment homes, these mobile resorts offer options for king-size beds, gourmet style kitchens, and the luxury of having your own washer, and dryer. The beauty of the RV lifestyle is the ability to travel anywhere, and for someone that loves to change up their hometown every now and then, it’s the ideal way to go.

The hottest spots to park your coach? Desert Gardens RV Park in Florence, Arizona is a beautiful 55+ community where active adults can either purchase or rent their RV lot with access to unique resort-style amenities. This Sonoran Desert location is an idyllic setting for long-term stays or quick stopovers. From the serene meditation garden, fitness center, and game room to the pool, soothing spa, and clubhouse, Desert Gardens isn’t your typical RV community. In Castroville, Texas, one RV community has gone all-out luxury. The Alsatian RV Resort located just minutes from San Antonio sits upon an 18 hole golf course and features a clubhouse, its own restaurant, and a beautiful infinity pool to relax in after a long drive.

Visit California during poppy flower season, or hike the Colorado Rockies, but wherever your destination takes you, RV living is an all-access pass to adventure. Whether you plan on being a full-time road warrior or use your RV as a second home, the miles ahead should be full of spontaneity, and plenty of road music. After all, aren’t baby boomers “Born to be Wild?”
