It's definitely going to increase costs ... and you may run into parking limitations at parks you may wish to stay at (many have a limit on the # of vehicles that can be parked at a single site). As far as making it more difficult getting through traffic in larger cities - I'm of the opinion that done right, having a "follow car" might actually make it easier
to negotiate traffic.
We're in the metro Detroit area (lots of freeways and lots of traffic). On several occasions when it's been necessary to take our coach out into heavy traffic (i.e., driving it to the dealership, back and forth to the storage lot, etc.) - having my wife following me in the jeep has been very helpful - especially when I've had to move across lanes of heavy traffic to get to an exit.
In the Liberty - she's far more nimble than I am in the coach. She simply move from directly behind the coach into the desired lane - and slow down to "open" the necessary space I need to move the coach into the lane. It eliminates the problem of being boxed out of a lane by folks who simply won't let you move over..
We use a pair of FRS radios when we do ... so we're in constant communication.
