Would you like to travel across the country in an RV motor home?

    I lived in a travel trailer when I was a kid with my grandma for about three years. Would have been fun if I was home schooled, alas, I have yet to fill my tank for marveling at the landscapes and country roads.

    I'd be down for that.... as long as it was one of those luxury RVs with the fancy bedrooms and bathrooms and spa-like atmosphere...and with a strong wifi signal. totally.

    I'm kind of on the fence. I kind of think I'd rather have a lot of money and do it in a car and stay in nice hotels.

    But I'd definitely rather do it in an RV than camp out with a tent; living like a Neanderthal cave man has no appeal to me.

    I grew up with motor homes as the big thing. While married we considered a motor home but then looked at the cost to buy, register, maintain, gas and especially store. Decided to go with a timeshare, that I love, instead. Motor homes are fun and convenient but for as much as most people travel, I think a timeshare or motel stay is a better option. If you're retired and can go whenever, it might be a good value.

    Easy to rent one and try out the lifestyle with a few friends, or by yourself. Compared to a conventional vacation, they're about the same cost as a rental car plus a motel room every night. The more people you take, the better a deal it is.

    I've rented them from time to time for field studies.

    I pull in to the nearest self-storage unit, and stash all of the cushions from the main bedroom. Then open the crates that I've shipped to myself there and turn it into a little laboratory. Hit a grocery store to stock up the galley, then head out on my project. Reverse the process on the way back and the rental company never knows the difference.

    WAY better than a tent and a truck.

    With friends, I've also rented one for wine tasting tours. You just have to talk someone into being the designated driver.

    Then there's this guy, who is probably in a class of his own.

    Yes, but I'd guess that you'd have to use it a lot to make up for its cost. There are retirees who do that; makes me wonder how many of them are on the road a lot in order to justify having bought the motor home or trailer.

    Two of my Dad's sisters and their husbands lived like that after they retired. They used our house as their mailing address (low vehicle taxes here.) But mostly they had two or three places they would go and just stay for a whole season, with a little traveling in between. When their health started declining, they gave it up though, and went back to fixed addresses.

    Some of my field camps looked just like that. In the highlands in New Mexico, the slope is so gradual you don't realize it, but when you sit back you realize that you can see a hundred miles. Then the stars come out at night...

    ahhhhh, like Priscilla !!!! hey, I'd love to try it. as a boat owner, at least for now, my dream would be to have a partner as keen on boating as I, and do the great loop in a grand banks 32 or Nordic tug 39. yeah, like that will ever happen. hey, a boy can dream. sigh.

    I've never done it but I think it would be cool. Although I've been in some pretty deluxe RVs, I'd want to do it in a classic retro Airstream.
