Why Harvest Hosts is the Safest Method of RV Travel Post-COVID-19

The Wall Street Journal recently stated that RVs were the safest way to vacation this summer given the pandemic.  Read their article here: RV Vacations: The Safest Way to Travel This Summer.

 

We believe that within the RV industry, Harvest Hosts is even safer than the rest of the options.  Read on to see how we are attracting more RVers than ever before to unique experiences with our Hosts.  

 

The sudden COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the world in unimaginable ways. For those who love to travel in their RV, this global catastrophe likely meant cancelled plans and postponed trips. As the country slowly begins to reopen over the coming months, many experts are skeptical that things will return to normal quickly. Some folks may remain wary of crowded campgrounds and close proximity to others, opting instead to wait longer to travel again. Other RVers may wish to begin to travel as soon as they are permitted to do so. However, many have chosen to revise their travel style to continue social distancing on some level. 

 

Many Harvest Hosts members may currently find themselves itching to dust off their membership and travel safely once again. Because of the nature of staying at a Harvest Hosts location, using your membership on RV trips may very well be one of the best ways to travel in the near future. Read along for more information on why Harvest Hosts is the safe, supportive, and scenic way to RV in the aftermath of COVID-19.

 

Safe

Many RVers enjoy the luxury of staying in full hookups campgrounds. However convenient these may be, they tend to place campers in close proximity to each other. Even if your RVs are located more than six feet apart, you will likely run into other campers. This could be while going for a stroll, walking your dog, disposing of garbage, checking in, or any other number of typical campground activities. This is likely a bit stressful for those wishing to continue to maintain a safe distance from others while traveling. 

 

If you choose to stay at a Harvest Hosts location instead, you will most likely be parked much further from other campers (if any). After the business closes for the night, you will typically be one of a handful of people on the property. In addition, when you patron the business, you can choose to do so at a time when it is not busy. Be sure to always follow local ordinances to wear face masks or follow other protocol when entering a place of business.

 

Scenic

Anyone who has spent the past two months or more in lockdown has probably not encountered many scenic views. However, you can rest assured that any Harvest Hosts location you visit will have no shortage of beautiful sights. If you visit a Harvest Hosts location, you will likely enjoy views of rolling green hills, lush countryside, and any other local applicable scenery (mountains, rivers, forests, etc.). This sharply juxtaposes views of other RVs found at most campgrounds or the typical suburban scenery seen at locations for other RV membership clubs. You can rest assured that no matter what type of host you choose to visit post-pandemic, you will find some gorgeous and well-deserved views to enjoy.

 

Supportive

For many people, the impacts of COVID-19 were financially detrimental. This is especially true for small businesses who rely on tourism and visitors to survive. In the months following COVID-19, these businesses need our support more than ever. Instead of paying for a night’s stay at a campground, consider staying at a Harvest Hosts location. This may allow you to put the money that would typically be spent on campgrounds towards small businesses in need. In addition, you will walk away with some delicious goods of your own. This could include wine or beer, farm fresh food or produce, and/or other products available at Harvest Hosts locations. This will mutually benefit both yourself and the Host, while helping local businesses and communities in their time of need.

Why Harvest Hosts is the Safest Method of RV Travel Post-COVID-19

Being a Host is completely free and comes with no financial obligations from you, the business owner.  

 

We just ask that you review the following list of best practices and let us know if you have any questions: 

 

BUSINESS LICENSE & INSURANCE – Our Hosts tell us that most insurance companies cover a guest within the scope of normal business insurance. Check with your agent to insure you have a liability policy that covers you. Please note that the Member Code of Conduct requires our members to have their own insurance. They are also required to agree that Hosts are not responsible for damage or theft to their vehicles or to members and their family.

PRODUCTS TO SELL – We want a Member-Host visit to be a reciprocal transaction. They have a place to stay for the night and your business benefits from allowing them to stay.

WEBSITE AND/OR FACEBOOK PAGE – Our members love to do their research while they are traveling. An online presence helps members know they are going to a secure location to stay.

PARKING AND ACCESSIBILITY – We suggest 1-4 parking spaces but that remains to your discretion. Many times, our members like to travel in pairs, so you might have occasions with a little party in your parking lot! Speaking of parking lot…it can be gravel, grass, or paved. Members just need level areas to be able to extend their slides. Our members also want to know that they have plenty of room to turn around and won’t hit low hanging tree branches.

EMPLOYEE AWARENESS – Please let your employees know about our program and where you want members to park in the event you are not available.

We currently have over 1400 Hosts in our networks and we're adding more every day.  Hosts include wineries, breweries, distilleries, farms, museums, attractions, and much more.

Testimonials: 

 

“We have truly enjoyed being a part of Harvest Hosts. We get many visitors every week some local and some just passing through that use your service and ultimately patronize Vermilion Valley Vineyards. We have met people and have had wonderful conversations with people from all over the country due to Harvest Hosts. Camping and RVing is truly a social network that we never knew existed before our commitment to Harvest Hosts.”

“We didn’t know what to expect when we joined as Harvest Hosts. But now we couldn’t be happier. The guests we see are kind, engaged and thoughtful. We have hosted over 100 RV’s at our ranch, and every group has left with big smiles and products from our tasting room, creating a considerable boost in our annual sales.”

Christian Ahlmann

“For the past 2 years Agua Dulce Winery has been a Harvest Host. Every week travelers from around the country stay at our 100 acre winery. They enjoy beautiful peaceful grounds and taste some of Southern California’s finest wines. While selling our wine to Harvest Hosts visitors is beneficial to our business we love meeting people and hearing about their travels on the open road. We have had visitors in million dollar motor homes to couples travelling in vans. Everyone has been a pleasure and we look forward to a long relationship with Harvest Hosts. Cheers!”
