Can't imagine traveling in the coach with another couple. No thank you.

I offer that an option is that you could tow a Travel Trailer for your MIL. Like a "granny flat" at home...you could even alternate who entertains for dinner

We've gone on many long weekend outings with the son, DIL, & grandson with no problems at all. We decided this past summer to take them from FL to Mt. Rushmore, Yellowstone, & Grand Tetons. Were with the DIL & GS for 1 week, then son flew to Rapid City and was with us for 2 weeks. So all-in-all, we were 3 weeks with someone else with us. I can honestly say we had no issues and thoroughly enjoyed it. We would do it again, and they say the same. Actually, we're planning another trip for summer of 2017. I will say it got old breaking down the sofas each night to make beds and then unmaking the beds the next day, but knowing there was an end in sight, it was okay. I would not want to do that forever. We only have 1 bathroom and didn't have any bathroom issues either. I never felt like I couldn't use it when I wanted.

My mother in law is actually healthy and fun to be around. We traveled with them before with no problems just not in a coach. Our preconceived thought is to travel to florida together from st Louis and then they move to a cabin when we get there. We have a 3 year old son traveling with us as well. I am disabled and don't get around well this is the purpose for the pusher. I was wondering how the actual travel with 4 adults would be going down the highway or if it would be too cramped. Thanks for all the replies it has been enlightening and entertaining.

We had a 33' Safari Simba for ten years. Father in law and mother in law went on a wheel long trip on the Oregon coast. Mother in law stated before the trip she hated rvs and would stay in a hotel. We agreed and took her to a hotel the first night. She ignored me when I said "we're here you can go in". Never heard another word about staying in a hotel the rest of the trip. We have a really close friend and his wife. We like the same things and have traveled in this 33' many times and sometimes for almost 3 months and we are still really close friends. Don't know of anyone else we could do this with, though.

We found our coach is the perfect way to visit with family.

We now stay in the MH and they all cram in the beach cottage now for vacation or we stay in the MH instead of the implied need to stay at thier place.....

So nice to be able to set our our schedule to a great degree and made both family get togethers this past year much less stressful.

FWIW I think at least part of it depends on the nature of the trip. Casual sight seeing has different dynamics than going to something like a weekend craft show where the schedule is more or less pre determined. Ditto age differences. Taking an aging parent or grandchild is different than packing in another adult couple used to making their own choices.

Very interesting and funny thread..

I will admit... my GF and I prefer to be in our RV by ourselves... but we also love to entertain..

I plan about 2-3 trips each year with friends.. We all have our bikes and love to travel with them.. we typically find a destination and plan around it.. some of the trips we've done are; MI (South Haven) and the KY Bourbon Trail (doing both again this year)..

We typically invite another couple who doesn't have an RV to join us.. We've done that a couple times and it's worked out nicely... One of the reasons I feel it works for us, is having the 2nd bathroom... When we go to bed at night.. they have their space (front of the RV) and we have ours (master bedroom)... having our own bathrooms to use is key.. this is great during the night, and the mornings..

As for traveling to the destination... we usually pick a stopping point and everyone gets there when they get there.. some drive faster/slower than others.. we communicate by texting each other, as some have to stop for gas faster than others.. by the time its all said and done.. we usually arrive within minutes of each other.. kinda funny how that works out..

We did Sturgis last year with 4 other couples and three RV's... The fist rule established; no one has an umbilical cord attached... do what you want.. we all end up at the same place and get to talk about our adventures... it was great !!

We find ourselves VERY lucky that two of our passions (HD's and RV's) blend so beautifully together.. and it goes without saying that both are a GREAT group of people !!

Eric,

We also share those passions with others. We did Laconia Bike Week 2015 with another couple who rode from MD to there on the HD. They arrived 2 days after we did and insisted on a tent site. All was good except for the weather... 2 rainy days brought them to the RV sofa for the evening. It was weird sharing our living space since our schedules were so different, I stay up till 2AM and they want to go to sleep at 11PM, I get up around noon and they arise at 7AM.
We have 3 dogs which are our babies and they travel everywhere in the RV with us. Let's just say it is different to share our space with others.

I got hit on my Road King. Used to love to ride. Girl texting and driving hit me at 50 from behind while I was stopped. We all know the moral to that story.

Glad to see you're still among the living after that experience..
