Descriptions on communities in the path of totality of the upcoming August 21 eclipse run the gamut of a massive traffic jam to a zombie apocalypse.
Granted, most hotels and motels are already booked up and campgrounds who accept reservations are also booked up. So it will be difficult for people to find accommodations or camping sites.
For the RVer, it will be a bit easier to cope with the expected hordes. For one thing, especially out west, there's plenty of pubic lands for people in self-contained RVs to boondock.
RV Life has an article on how to view the eclipse from the comfort of your RV with plenty of tips.
They begin it with:
Do you have your campsite reserved for what is being billed as the event of the century? On Monday August 21, 2017, a total eclipse of the sun will occur from coast to coast across the United States, forming a 70 mile corridor of darkness across 14 states. The eclipse will begin as a partial eclipse at 9:06 AM (PDT) on the Oregon coast and will end later that day as a partial eclipse at the South Carolina coast at 4:06 PM EDT.
How rare is this event? The last time a total solar eclipse was visible across the entire contiguous United States was June 8, 1918 nearly one hundred years ago. Making this event even rarer is the fact that its path of totality falls exclusively within the United States, making it the first such eclipse since 1776 when the United States declared its independence. Before that, June 13th, 1257 was the last total eclipse that fell exclusively on lands currently part of the United States! This truly is a once in lifetime event.
