Why we go in an 'A'

Grandkids are 4 hours away and it is nice to have a refuge to retreat to in the middle of a visit. We "camp" in their drive way on weekends there. The 'A' is also a great way to see the USA. We did a month and a half, Nov/Dec adventure from Michigan to Kalifornia and back via Arizona and it was wonderful. For any method of long distance travel, can't beat it.

Just Another Old Doggy, Don

I bought an older unit so I didn't have to be so careful. I take my 34' Monoco off the pavement often. And I have NEVER stayed at an RV park like on the first page. I have dogs, kids and enjoy my privacy. I do not like "people", my family are hermits. We camp, hunt, 4x4 and enjoy our time seeing new things. Not living Plug in to Plug in. I dont understand why folks would spend 200k for a house on wheels to live like that. I spent 16k on my coach, have put another 8 into it making it ours. And enjoy the freedom and flexibility.

The DW and I have always dreamed about running a campground. But each space would be an Ac with a nice pad, trees, fencing, groomed yard and the like. With a common area, pool laundry and such. I just don't get how people can be stacked up like that.

Reason
1) Comfortable real queen bed
2) Living area for rainy/wintery days
3) Washer/dryer
4) Feels more like home than a vehicle
5) In-flight beverage & meal service
6) What better grade than A?

The original post sounds like a "fishing expedition" to see who bites on the topic. Or, to be charitable, just to start a conversation about something the OP doesn't like. I guess it worked...
