Recreational vehicles are most often equipped with a kitchen, living and bed rooms. Some RVs are even fitted with recreational amenities, making it possible for the travelers to watch their favorite movie or listen to their favorite songs while driving.
However, recreational vehicles don't come cheap, and neither is their maintenance. The fact that it's transportable and fitted with home amenities can mean more fuel and electricity usage.

This can result in great savings on fuel consumption.
