You are not required to personally own a recreational vehicle; however, you must have access to one.  This means you can rent or borrow one from a friend or family member.  But most of our members travel in their motor homes, travel trailers and 5th wheels.  You can also rent a park model unit if available at the RV park to join in with the NAARVA family at a rally or chapter outing.  Check with the wagon master for availability.
