CBS News shared a report on summer RV travel this morning, along with some additional analysis from CBS Travel Editor Peter Greenberg.

Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start to the summer travel season, but this year it will look a bit different, CBS reported. Greenberg said people can expect to see some changes as we still fight the coronavirus pandemic.

“We are dealing with a combination of comfort zone fear and practicality. When travel does return, it’ll be within 300 miles of where you live. It will be short one-tank trips or day trips. RV sales are gonna spike, RV rentals are gonna spike. We’re going rediscover our country, our national parks, or even more importantly, less-crowded state parks. We will skip the interstates and go down two-lane county roads and literally rediscover America. That’s what going to happen before the end of this year, whether we like or it not. I actually kind of like it. I’d like to rediscover America right now,” Greenberg said.
