Ever wondered why RVers are adamant about having their pets on board?
Because, they know that it is the best present that they can ever give their pets. For most people the mere thought of being separated from their furball is a terrifying nightmare. Why? Because pets are family too, according to veteran RVers Ray and Anne. They say, that their pet is their furry little child. What do you think about that? 😀
Simply put, being able to plunge into the wild is not just a human dream, but the dream of our pets too. For starters, wilderness is their home too. According to Eddie and Amy, successful RVers, travelling with pets in an RV is just like travelling with pets in a car or a van. Eddie says, living life as an RVer with pets is almost a symbiotic relationship. We couldn’t agree more! 😀
