Lifestyle photographer Moya Slade lives in Surrey, in the South of England, with her husband and their son and daughter. I went to meet Moya to find about about their family RV holiday on the USA’s West coast.
In case you don’t know, RV stands for Recreational Vehicle (otherwise known as a motorhome) and in the US they’re big(!) business. According to the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association, there are more than 12,000 RV-related businesses in the US, with combined revenues of more than $37.5 billion dollars, employing more than 250,000 people. Renting an RV isn’t a budget option, but it offers flexibility and a great experience.
My family and I used to travel around Europe in a VW camper van when I was a child, and I was interested to find out how Moya’s trip went. Moya and her family had never been on an RV trip before, but it sounds like the holiday was a great success. Watch the video to find out more:
