Traveling with your partner or several friends can be fun, especially if you do it often. However, there is always something special about solo trips. RVing alone makes it easy to plan your time and everything about your travel according to your wish. You also have the opportunity to do what seems best to you, and further, it is usually easier to connect with others and have talks when you are alone.
On the other side, there are also downsides to this type of travel. It can be fun, but it also has the potential of a negative effect on your relationship. Here are some ways in which solo travel can affect your relationship.
