Yankee COVID-19 Update: July 30, 2020

Yankee RV has always said “Safety comes before fun.” This statement is still true today. As the novel form of coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) remains of a widespread concern and local governments continue to recommend or mandate restrictions on person-to-person interactions, business operations, and home isolation, we want to share important information with you about our efforts to help keep our caravaners, rally goers and team members safe and healthy.


The Northeast has especially stringent guidance for all out of state travelers utilizing lodging, camping and short-term rental properties in the Northeast. The travelers must affirm that they meet the State's quarantine requirements and have traveled from an area with similar active COVID-19 caseloads to their current location.


This being said, for the safety and health of our caravaners and staff, we have no choice, but to cancel our 2020 Northeast Red Maple Fall Foliage caravan. We are fortunate that many of our caravaners have rolled over their reservations to our 2021 Fall Foliage or other caravans we offer. We have offered a full refund to any caravaners that cannot fit another caravan with us into their schedules. On a positive note, our Northwest Expedition caravan, is currently underway and that area of the country is less affected by this virus.


As we are resuming operations of our caravans and rallies, the safety and health of our caravaners and staff remains our top priority. Below are a few items to keep in mind:

  1. We are monitoring all Federal, State, and Local guidelines regarding COVID-19 in the states and countries in which we travel.
  2. We will follow all social distancing guidelines and take steps to ensure that activities in which we participate will allow for proper distancing.
  3. We understand that there will be changes you should be prepared to see when you join us on your next adventure.
  4. We have always focused on safety, even before fun, but we are ramping up our efforts to have heightened focus on disinfection procedures for commonly used areas and for our social gatherings.
  5. Meals will likely be different as we move forward in these changing times. We will follow the guidance of the experts and ensure that all caravaners feel comfortable in our choices for meals. This could take on many different forms, but safety will always come first.
  6. Remember, you are in control of the activities in which you choose to participate. At any time, you may choose to opt out of an activity, if you do not feel comfortable. 


Our staff continues to work on current and future adventures. We will be discussing these tours at our Annual Pre-tour Orientation and Reunion in Eustis Florida.

    We just love Yankee RV Tours. The trips visit beautiful scenery, take in fantastic events. The camaraderie is the best! Have done 5 caravans and 1 rally so far since I retired in 2015. Thanks Rod and Helen.

    Just visiting your website and looking at your future adventures.
    Was on 2018 NW expedition and already signed for future tour. I enjoyed the entire experience but even more then the the great places we went to I enjoyed the comaradeie of traveling with the group. You were so much like my dad I'm trying to convince him to take a trip with me. Can't wait to do it again.

  • Fay and Frank (Wednesday, August 15 18 06:37 pm EDT)

    We have been traveling with Yankee TV Tours since 2010 when we toured the Canadian Maritimes. Have taken every tour they offer and been to most of the Rallies. We have traveled with other companies and there is no comparison. Great planning, great fun. The Best!
