Introduction: Recreation and travel for Americans have dramatically shifted from commercial travel industries for example ships and airplanes to recreational vehicles (RVs) such as travel trailers and motorhomes due to the pandemic. RVs provide Americans the ability to social distance per the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) while enjoying traveling and the outdoors with family and friends. The last recorded injuries due to RV accidents was 75,000 in 2012 (Fifth Wheel Street, 2020). However, in light of the pandemic there are important factors to consider for a potential rise in RV accidents. RV manufacturers are forecasted to increase production by 18.7% from 2020 (RVIA, 2020) and sales are projected to increase by 19.5% by the end of 2021 (Woodbury, 2020). Additionally, RV rentals grew by 70% from 2019 to 2020 by millennials (Park, 2021) statistically more likely to be involved in an accident (Gorzelany, 2020). With the increased demand of RVs due to the pandemic the United States will see an increase in accidents.

To negate the increased amount of RV accidents brought upon by the pandemic and the RV industry meeting the demand of their consumers in the United States, the Travel Trailer Model was conceived. The model will be used by instructional designers to create instruction for all RV owners to increase their safety practices and confidence in stationary movements. The Travel Trailer Model, if used correctly will decrease RV accidents in recreation/non recreation and outdoor environments.
