Th ability to be able to spend a night on a river or lake or whatever, at a moments notice. Since I have done the van/rv thing, I have always had the mind-set that I wanted to be able to grab it and go, if and when the urge struck.

Case in point, we had gone to a Dragon Boat race on Lake Lakelse yesterday..a certain someone was involved..and afterwards, we had a nap in the parking lot while my kayak dried out, then decided to overnight on the Kitimat River, at Orange Bridge. No one else there...had a lovely campfire and gobbled marshmallows...in bed by 9:30 and slept till 8:30.

Too me...that is the best, right there.

We are fulltiming and this is our first summer on the road. It's been a shakedown run so far. Learning a lot......and loving the freedom of the road. Have been boondocking and staying in campgrounds both. The best thing about our RV is.......it has wheels and can take us everywhere.

If you don't care for your neighbors, you can have new ones tomorrow.

Several things come to mind. Motels are cheaper, but you can't have "smores" with the grandkids in a motel room. I like knowing that the "bottoms" on my toilet seat are all from my family, and not some stranger I've never met. We like to sleep under our bedspread without sharing it with 100's of others. Camping with family and close friends is just hard to beat.

Bed bugs, clean towels, clean sheets, and blankets that you know have your germs on them . I used to travel 5 days a week and slept in a different motel most nights. But some times i would have to spend a week in one location. Many times I have seen room service personel just walk in change the towels, and make the beds. I had seen the occupants load their luggage in to their car and leave . For that reason I will not stay in a motel.

The constant change of the view from the living area window.

"Motels are cheaper." ???????


Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

The best thing about RVing is that everything is in its normal place no matter where in the country you locate vs staying in a motel or B & B.

All the above. Plus, sitting for hours in a traffic jam is no big deal when you have everything you need with you.

I'm with you Gary - the ability to go or stay on a whim with no need to have rigid plans.
