Ever thought about spending your honeymoon…in an RV? A road trip can provide a uniquely romantic start to married life. On top of enjoying the open road together, your RV honeymoon can be spontaneous, allowing you to create your own adventure and fantastic memories as you go.
Rent an RV for your honeymoon and you’ll get to customize your trip for your exact preferences. Like a quiet environment? That’s easy to find. Looking for more campfire community? That’s doable too! Your RV keeps you comfortable as you travel, and when you’re ready to stop, your RV provides cozy newlywed accommodations.
1. It’s the perfect time for close quarters.
An RV honeymoon may not seem like the most romantic idea at first glance. While many honeymooners imagine lounging on a beach, you can’t beat the fun you’ll have behind the wheel and curled up close in an RV. A family of five might balk at the idea of spending a week sharing a small space, but your honeymoon is the perfect time for close quarters.
2. You get to enjoy every part of the trip.
One of the best parts of any trip away is the journey of getting to your destination. Sitting side-by-side in an RV on your road trip together means you can decide to stop and explore the scenery at any time. You get to choose the music you listen to, sing along to your favorite tunes together, or talk about your plans for married life along the way.
You have a unique chance to spend lots of quality time together, which can help to build a stronger bond to take with you through your married life.
3. You get to choose every destination and stop.
There are so many incredibly romantic honeymoon destinations across the country to choose from. Most people immediately think of typical honeymoon locations, like Niagara Falls or the warm beaches of Southern California or Florida, but an RV gives you the freedom to explore more surprising locations that aren’t so overrun by tourists and other honeymooners. Why not drive out to a smaller beach town, like Grand Haven in Michigan and explore the gorgeous beaches, bars, and restaurants in the area together? Maybe you’d prefer to head to Portsmouth in New England and share plates of clams together by the sea before heading to your RV to enjoy a cozy evening together?
If you do want the more traditional honeymoon fare, try searching for RV resorts. It’s not too difficult to find upscale locations that offer all the amenities, including those beloved couples massages.

4. RVing allows you to get creative.
If you’re driving around in an RV, you’re in charge of your itinerary. You’re not bound to a time-table or a pre-scheduled tour. Instead, you have complete freedom to choose where you go and how long you stay at each place on your honeymoon. Your road-trip itinerary is totally flexible.
No matter where you decide to drive to, there are also plenty of beaches, parks, hiking trails, and towns to explore along the way that can help you create some of the most romantic memories of your honeymoon.
Besides, when you’re traveling in an RV, your accommodation is always right there with you. You’re not at the mercy of hotel vacancies or resort schedules.
5. RVing is easy on the budget.
Many couples nowadays choose to forego their honeymoon altogether and opt to put the money to use in other places. It’s true— there are all sorts of expenses associated with starting your new life with your love.
Luckily, RVing is an extremely budget friendly way to travel. Since the experience is totally customizable, you can make the trip as cheap or luxurious as you’d like. Plus, you’d be surprised what kind of bang for your buck you can get!
6. It’s different!
Who wants to do the same old, same old? RVing for your honeymoon is unique and exciting. Start your marriage off on the right foot— the one filled with adventure, excitement, and plenty of bonding. Not many people who go RVing wish they would have done something different.
