There are many RV membership clubs out there, like Escapees, Thousand Trails or FMCA. I had a chance to attend a rally of one such membership club you probably have never heard about, NAARVA.
NAARVA stands for National African American RV Association. It was founded in 1993 and boasts a membership of more than 1,400 members. African-American RVers face many challenges and NAARVA aims to be a resource to solve some of those issues. I had looked into NAARVA a few years ago when we first started RVing and at that time I didn’t see any young families as members. So I moved on. However, this time I had a chance to find out if we were missing something special.
From the moment I pulled into Gulf Shores State Park, I knew things were different. Typically when we travel as a family in our RV, we are extremely lucky if we aren’t the only African-Americans in the entire campground.
