Two of the largest RV organizations for single adults are Loners of America and Loners on Wheels. Neither is a matchmaking or dating service. Both seek to celebrate the single lifestyle and the pleasure of traveling, camping and RV caravanning. Loners on Wheels has chapters in the USA, Canada, and Mexico that sponsor monthly campouts.
Since 1991, RVingWomen, now based in Arizona, has been offering classes on RV maintenance, driving, car repair and lifestyle. The members include those who are newly widowed, never married, or who prefer to travel without male companions. Some women live and travel together, others caravan in groups, and others are true solo travelers. It is not necessary to own a RV to join the group.
There are a number of locations popular among single RV enthusiasts. For those interested in "boondocking," or camping without hook-ups, Boondocking Guide is an excellent place to start. Click on the "BLM Information" button and check out "The Slabs" about 70 miles southeast of Palm Springs, California. The "slabs" are the concrete pads left when an air base in the area closed. A variety of RV clubs hold ongoing campouts there from September through March. "Coyote Howl," another such area, is located near Why, Arizona. Arguably the biggest RV gathering in the country takes place in the area surrounding Quartzite, Arizona, each winter.
