An RV can be the ideal place to practice social distancing. Whether you’re using it in the driveway of your own home as a safe space to isolate yourself or you’ve hit the road and wound up at Zuni Village RV Park, an RV provides the perfect self-contained environment for you to make your own safe space.
The Quarantine Quandary
If you’re one of the brave folks with essential jobs on the front lines, kudos to you. Many medical professionals, first responders, and essential service workers do incredible work during the day and then come home to a dilemma at night: how do you isolate yourself from others in your household? What if one of your family members or roommates is sick? What if you fear that your work might expose them to the virus? Especially if someone in your household is immune-compromised or elderly, the stress of maintaining social distancing under one roof can take its toll.
This is where your RV comes in. It has everything you need: a bathroom, a kitchen, and a bedroom. In fact, some folks who aren’t currently using their RVs are temporarily donating or renting them to frontline workers so they can keep their families safe and healthy. It’s the best of both worlds: complete self-isolation while still feeling like you’re right at home.
A Virtual Vacation
Let’s face it: quarantine gets boring after a while. You’ve read all the books, done all the puzzles, and binged more tv shows than you care to admit. You long for the great outdoors, for adventures in your RV.
Well, it may not be safe to travel right now, but that should’t stop you from taking a virtual vacation in your RV! Filled with happy memories of travels from years past, spending a night in your RV can feel like an adventure in and of itself, a change of scenery. All of a sudden you’re not stuck at home in during Covid-19, you’re camping in Kingman, AZ! It’s a change of scenery without the coronavirus-era perils of traveling.
A Walk On The Wild Side
If you’re already on the road, there are responsible ways to maintain social distancing while living and traveling in your RV. First and foremost, make sure you’re aware of the local regulations: are parks open or closed? Is there a curfew? What activities and businesses are permitted, and what’s closed? These things vary greatly from place to place and even week to week. The first priority should be keeping yourself and the community safe.
You can indulge in many of the same quarantine activities that everyone else is enjoying: reading, watching tv, playing cards and board games. You can also partake in your favorite outdoor rituals, since many of them follow guidelines for social distancing: hiking, biking, fishing, and swimming can all be done safely. If you encounter other folks in your travels, just be sure to keep at least six feet of distance.
This is a great time to immerse yourself in nature. Avoid public place and attractions, even if they’re still open. Choose parks in Kingman, AZ, for example, over the monuments of Route 66. They’ll still be there when this all blows over. Maybe you’ll even find yourself off the beaten path, seeking out a less-populated trail that will take you for a walk on the wild side.

Amid the chaos of the coronavirus pandemic, it can be easy to lose perspective. As long as you’re in good health, this will all someday feel like a dream. Find joy where you can and maintain social distancing to help stop the spread of Covid-19.
