Between PTO requests, coordinating family schedules, and booking RV campsites, travel plans are often made well in advance of major events or holidays. In fact, many Cruise America customers book their RV rentals six months to a year in advance. And it’s a good idea! Booking early with your local Cruise America dealer locks in the lowest available rate and helps ensure the perfect RV is available for your trip. 

Below, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite RV events of the year you may consider for 2024.
