If you could RV around one of these countries, which would you choose?

In our poll below, we’ve listed a few popular places to RV around the globe. Wouldn’t it be fun to RV around Iceland? Or wine-taste around France? Count sheep as you drive past in New Zealand? We sure think so!

International travel may not be possible right now, but hey, it doesn’t hurt to dream! We’re planning about 15 trips in our heads before we fall asleep at night. Are you doing the same?

We know there are hundreds of places you could RV around, but if you had to pick a place from the list below, where would you pick to travel? We’re curious to know.

In 2019 the wife and I spent 61 days in a Wilderness Rental RV touring New Zealand. What an amazing experience. Only 5 of the 61 days were at a campground, the rest in “Freedom Camping”, aka as boondocking/dry camping et al. I suggest you consider that any future camping will be a let down compared to New Zealand.

I have done a lot of Canada and once we do the Alaska drive thru Canada, if they ever open, then I can say I have seen Canada. Even though Nova Scotia is my next bucket list. Otherwise New Zealand is what I am gunning for.

I didn’t vote for Canada because we have been to and will go back to Canada, love it up there beautiful country. Honestly no interest in Mexico. New Zealand by RV sounds exciting, France would be interesting out in the country side, not much of a city boy. Spain, Ireland would be nice also.

You should have added the UK. Lots of us ex-military people spent time in UK or Europe, and seeing it in an RV sounds like some fun. You can rent them over there I am assuming, but with COVID-19, not much travel in our future.

Now if I could pick any country I would pick Australia and do the year-long trip completely around the perimeter.

We did do some exploring of Banff & Jasper, had the best time and met some super nice Canadians!

How about all of the above. I know we’ll travel Canada and Mexico once we retire so I didn’t pick those. I ended up selecting New Zealand. We’ve been there before and loved the country and the people so to go back and RV would be a marvelous trip.

My husband and I spent 3 weeks touring New Zealand in a campervan and absolutely loved it! We’d love to go back and see everything we didn’t have time for the 1st time around.
Now we’re looking forward to him retiring next year and seeing a lot of the US.

I had the privilege of touring Europe for three years courtesy of USAF. Although I was stationed in Holland approx one hour from Amsterdam, I traveled to Italy, Scotland(thought I was Scot, was not, Irish), England, Luxembourg, France, Germany including train trip to Berlin, Austria, Think that is all. Thoroughly enjoyed those three years in Europe! The benefits of seeing how others live make you appreciate the privilege of living
in the good ole USA!

I’ve been fortunate to travel to 134 countries, live on five continents and show our four children (all AF and Naval Academy grads) 85 countries before they were 18 during my 37 year military career. We have rented RVs to spend several weeks at a time to tour Australia and Southern Africa (South Africa/Mozambique/Botswana and Namibia) which was a wonderful family experience. We lived in Budapest for 6 years and traveled throughout Europe, Africa and the Middle East during our free time. Of all the places we have visited and lived in around the world, all six of us agree that Croatia is the most beautiful all round country in the world to camp and travel in. The people there are fantastic as is the country. Returning there and spending a summer by RV (before it is inundated by Italians during August) would be an incredible experience!

I really don’t like your list. My choice would be England. I speak the language ( although it’s not really the same) and enjoy British travelogues so that is the country I’d most like to visit.

Left out Australia. We were blessed to be able to travel for 6 weeks with our Australian friends who we met when my husband sold them a race car. They had a “caravan” (trailer to us). Not an ordinary one. Outfitted to visit the Outback. We had a 4W drive Landcruiser w/roo bars & snorkel, towing a ‘jumbuck” (a heavy duty tent that expanded. Bed up top, floor to keep snakes, bugs & other scary things out. (I’m not a camper. Lol). Trip of a lifetime. Spent time in the Outback, something only 10% of Australians have done. Friends were stocked w/lots of food/wine. Had mushroom risotto made from scratch 1st night in Outback! Saw opal mines, the south coast, wine country. Beautiful country. Great people.

I do not have plans to visit other countries in an RV. With so much to offer in this country alone why bother others. The exception may be to cross Canada on the way to Alaska, however I usually carry some personal protection as I go and Canada makes it clear I am not welcome this way.

One result of the Canadian gun control laws is that there are less murders yearly across the whole of Canada then are committed in just one of our cities, Baltimore. If not for their very cold winters, I would certainly consider moving to Canada!

I would RV around Finland if it were possible, for the whole summer. My grandparents were born there and immigrated to the US between 1904 and 1907. I would love to see where they were born, and imagine what life was like for them. All of Finland is beautiful, I could enjoy seeing it all, especially Lapland.

I knew a woman that traveled the world putting together travel packages for Continental Airlines. She was truly a world traveler, having a wall-sized map of the world and pushpins everywhere she had visited. When asked what country was her favorite, she responded Ireland without hesitation. I hope to go there someday.

In reality why would I want to travel outside of the USA? Most of the rest of the world is 2nd and 3rd world countries with a very small portion anything remotely like the USA. Years ago I thought it would interested to go to Australia but at this stage in my life I don’t see that happening. Thanks to the USMC I saw as much of the world that I care to see, more people should take advantage of the free world travel the military can provide, it’s an eye opening experience. Also it makes you appreciate what you have here at home.

Having been on a short trip to Ireland driving around in a car it would be my first choice to RV around for a month.
