The RV is a staple of American vacations and traveling.
Now they are making a comeback with sales skyrocketing.
Since the beginning of this year more and more people are turning to the RV for their vacation travel choice.
Actually since last year sales are up around 10%.
Here in Nebraska...it's the same story.
They are feeling the success.
"I've never seen sales the way it is," said co-owner of Rich and Son's RV shop Nick Staab.
That statements made by RV retailers all across the country including Grand Island's Rich and Son's RV shop.
The demand for these home away from home RVs is so high they're having trouble keeping these on the lot.
For Duane Eliers he's looking for his 3rd RV and says their perfect for his type of vacationing.
"Just love them for the outdoors...love fishing, camping. We started out with tents now we're up to the major things," said Eliers from York, Neb.
According to the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association, a family of four can save up to 60% when traveling in their RV, even when factoring in the purchase price, maintenance costs, and fluctuating gas prices.
"Well you've got your bed with you no matter where you go you know your not going to a different hotel room every night. You've got your kitchen with you it's pretty economical as far as cooking. Eating out can be costly," said Tony Staab, co-owner of Rich and Son's RV shop.
"They're fun to have some place to get out if it storms. We've sat in there rocking pretty good," said Eliers.
The price tag for some of those RVs are quite pricey it's a huge commitment for those buyers.
But a lot of them that I talked to say the up front cost is big but it pays off in the end.
