What is it like to go on a caravan?

A big big thank you!


If you are reading this email, it’s because you have attended or registered for any one of our many Rallies or Caravans, and I wanted to give a Big “Thank You” for choosing Great American Caravans. My team and I will always work hard to meet and exceed your expectations upon your trusting of us to conduct these once-in-a-lifetime adventures.

I’m often asked “What is a caravan?” or “What is it like to go on a caravan?” Although there are many months of advanced planning, coordinating, and logistics for creating these caravans/large groups, that’s a given. The hard work that goes into conducting a caravan trip is not noticed by the person attending… My simple answer is: It’s best described as an All-Inclusive Trip of Adventurous RVers Traveling Together and Doing Fun Things as a Group. Now I know there is much more to it than that, but it does sum it up in a “nutshell.”

Due to the fact that these trips are pre-planned and conducted by a professional staff, you maximize your whole experience:

  • You’re doing and seeing more than you would on your own.
  • You’re learning intriguing facts about the areas we tour via exclusive tour guides for our groups.
  • You’re not sitting in your RV waiting and wondering what you’re going to do each day.
  • We’re always on the go on our adventures, though you won’t be overwhelmed as these trips are pre-planned to the last detail.
  • You’ll receive a detailed, hour-by-hour itinerary guide that enables you to relax and really enjoy each activity and the people around you. Having FUN is what we do and the Staff is there for You.

We make sure to take good care of our people, on and off the road. We have protocols in place for just about every situation that can arise, and our staff is there to make sure everything goes smoothly.

We know we’ve done our job when at the end of a trip you feel like you have received more than your money’s worth, along with making life-changing friendships that last a lifetime.

  1. Over the last thee years we’ve been traveling around the most of the USA with Great American Caravans. We’ve been traveling with this group and really enjoyed the bonds created and the opportunity for new adventures.

    There are many benefits of a group travel. The most important is the socialization. Sometimes, it can get pretty lonely out on the road. It’s nice to reconnect with friends and spend some time, really getting to know one another.

    It’s also nice to have the added layer of security, that caravanning offers. Having a support group with knowledge and resources should anyone break down, get stuck . . . etc.

    There is definitely strength in numbers and it can be an extra reassurance to fall asleep knowing friends are nearby. Its great to experience these new places together and helps remove some of the anxiety of traveling alone in unfamiliar areas.

    Caravanning can be really fun. It opened us up to new experiences and adventures that we may not have had, if we were by ourselves. We went off-roading, explored caves, fascinating museums, potlucks and so much more.

    Everything is taking care of, where they book all the campgrounds, make arrangements for food, bus tours, entertainment and more. The best part about this Caravan is that you can do things on your own terms and move in & out of social situations, as you please.

    It can be bittersweet to say goodbye to new and old friends, but the open road has a way of bringing people back together again, and in the most unexpected places.

    As we part our ways to continue on, after the Caravan; with our previous travel plans and routes; It’s hard to say goodbye. But we’re excited to head back home for a visit with family & friends. Looking forward to meeting up again down the road.

    I know this is a long story; but we had so much fun.
    Thank you, Vicki & Richard Harrison
