No kidding. I'm sure he had already heard more than enough of how rough it was on this trip and he was probably ready to sit back in that big old beauty, turn on some tunes, and enjoy the ride.

Careful now!

It's like the old; "and.... for a few dollars more...."

After climbing in and out of million dollar rigs at RV shows and watching many programs like this one, we found ourselves feeling like we couldn't possibly go on without having heated tile floors, gold fixtures, and maybe even that one with the little garage under it so we could stash a SmartCar. A quick check of finances brought us back to earth.

It is a lot of fun to go through those rigs though. I walk away not so much feeling like I would like to OWN one but rather I'm dying to DRIVE one!

It was fun to get to see the new ones on RV 2012 even if I didn't see any Newmars. Did have a lot of really nice ones. Gave me ideas on our next MH.

The expensive RV's and planes are modern day equivalents for private railroad coaches of yesteryear, and, yes, horse coaches and yachts as well. If you are wealthy and can afford it, traveling in style is one of the perks. Each one has it advantages and disadvantages; with enough wealth you can have one of each.

Yacht; coast to coast in a month or so, size no limit, has crew, slow and restricted to waterways large enough for travel, limited public bling..

Airplane; speedy, coast to coast in hours, has a crew, somewhat space limited, also limited to landing at airports; transferring to helicopter increases mobility, limited public bling.

Private railroad car; coast to coast in several days, limited to railroad tracks, slide outs usually not allowed, can have a crew, limited public bling.

Fancy RV; coast to coast in several days, can go anywhere a reasonable road goes, limited crew space, lots of public bling

Lots of trade-offs......

My ideal would be a really nice Class A diesel with a contract driver team in a chase Class A. The lead vehicle would be just bedroom, bath and living space, with a small sink and microwave. The chase vehicle would house the kitchen and living space for the "crew", minimum of 3 people. They would prepare meals in the chase vehicle and drive both vehicles.
