Camping remains one of the most popular activities in America. According to a Statista report, campgrounds and RV parks gathered an estimated 5.8 billion USD in 2015. If you love camping, probably you too added something to that number. However, camping is all the more fun when you add an RV and a bike to the equation. Sadly, not all RV parks come with bike trails, but those that do are worth visiting. If you are considering buying a diesel motor home for sale or have bought one already, allow us to inspire an upcoming fun weekend in four of the most popular RV parks across the US for travelers with a penchant for bicycling:
