COVID-19 has put a lot of travel plans on hold as people opt to stay home and limit their risk of exposure. For those who are traveling, there are a lot of families opting to do road trips rather than hopping on a plane. RV rentals have been in demand as families set out across the country for a little escape, but who want to enjoy the comforts of home and be able to distance from crowds or worry about how well a hotel is sanitizing their property.

One way to travel this season is by renting a luxury coach bus normally reserved for rock stars and celebrities. StormTrooper Coaches, like many businesses had had to pivot during the pandemic. Since there are no concerts for performers to travel to, their fleet is now available to the public. Families can make their way out to explore the country's national parks in style and with the ability to have a luxury home on wheels at every stop.

The coaches can sleep up to 12 people, are equipped with WIFI, TV, gaming systems, a kitchen, shower and more. And the bus comes with its own driver, so you can just sit back and enjoy and let someone else worry about pulling up the maps, navigating the roads and dealign with traffic. Each driver is tested for COVID before the trip, and because they normally drive after a music concert, are used to driving at night, so you can get the bulk of your distance done as the family sleeps and arrive to your destination refreshed and ready to explore.

The company also works with travel agencies that can gather a full itinerary for you, so you can also skip the step of planning out where to go and what to see. It's probably the most worry-free vacation you could take considering the circumstances. 

Storm Trooper Coaches has transported such celebrities as Post Malone, Her, Kanye West, The Rolling Stones, Florida Georgia Line, Lizzo and Collective Soul. For more information, visit
