Do Rv owners do other vacation than rving

Do you Rv owners do other vacation other then camping? If so what do you like to do? I personally love to go on cruises and I'm thinking about going on another one this year or travel to Europe, not trying to be nosy just curious? Joe

Wife goes to Europe while I go on Boy Scout backpack trips in the Rockies.

This summer is our 25th wedding anniversary so we are taking a cruise around the Hawaiin Islands (the only state we have not been to).

So in 2012, we will only use the RV for a Easter trip to the Keys and a Memorial Day weekend trip to VA. Will probably do a fall trip just to give the rig some use.

Flying, first time in 16 years from PA to AZ to visit kids and Grand-kids. Have always taken RV in the past, but can only take a week for visit.

We got married in Hawaii 25 years ago but would still like to make that cruise. We flew over to Hawaii as part of a singles group, got married there and then on the flight back the singles group threw us out!

A couple of trips to Hawaii. Short trips to Las Vegas, especially during the winter and mid summer months tend to be in Hotels.
Truth be told, I prefer my RV vacations. No airline hassles, my own bed, morning fresh hot coffee, no suitcases. As for the complaints about morning campground noise, at least you don't get housekeeping vacuming at 8am, or families running up and down the halls calling on friends in distant rooms.
Now if only someone would build a bridge to Hawaii....the perfect RV trip.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday, and Happy Trails to you and yours.

We own a two week time share in Cancun and go there every year in March. Have a three day soccer tournament in Phoenix in February where we thought about taking the RV but I need to save the vacation days for RV trips this summer.

Went to Alaska without the MH, Went to Hawaii and had trouble keeping the chassis dry so I flew there as well! Mexico, France, Austrailia, New Zealand, Cruise to Quebec from NJ. Just left the MH in TX (Winter Texans) and flew home for the holidays. There are others but I am not sure listing them is needed to answer your question. I wonder why we still own a home. Although I am supporting the neighbor boy as he mows and shovels as we travel! Grandma gets to keep the grandkis at times and moving away would distress her something awful.

We are full-timers but have 3 timeshares so we can vacation by going back to sticks/bricks It gives us a way to go places we either can't drive to or are too far to reseasonably drive to. We used to cruise but right now it just doesn't hold a candle to "cruising" in our home.

Merry Christmas to All

Our travel has changed as the price of diesel has risen. We used to think nothing of driving across country, but it takes 5 days each way, $4000 to $5000 in diesel, and at least a couple thousand for RV parks. For the last several years if we want to go to Florida we jump on a plane and stay at the nicest resorts. Sure we don't have our home with us, and it seems strange not prepare food and such but it's a lot less money.

This year took a plane to Ecuador and toured the country before flying to the Galapagos Islands. We spent a month in Key West, a resort near Tampa, and Jamaica. We spend time in San Francisco and New Orleans without the coach. We flew to Vancouver, BC for a few days then did an Alaska cruise. I've always wanted to see Alaska. Considering the cost of fuel, wear and tear on your vehicle it was so much nicer and cheaper to do it on a cruise ship and be waited on hand and foot!

We love to travel in our motor home but it has limitations. There are so many wonderful places to see in world that you really can't do in an RV.
