Big Daddy I know where yourcoming from, , I have a wife and 2 granddaughters that travel with us. Its was tough in a pop-up, had to hit every rest stop. Now a rest area no facilities is ok with the toy hauler. We took the cat with us for the first time a few weeks back and we were not off the street yet and she started to meow. i looked her in the eye and told her "we are not there yet and if you ask again you will be going in the cage with one of the dogs. Needless to say she was good for a few more blocks.

Lots of good reasons to have a motorhome to stay in well here is two more.
My Wife is in the travel industry and she stays in lots of hotels all over the USA, Mexico ,and Canada some.

Reason 1> My DW slipped into a bed one night only to find it was wet and had been used as a restroom but not changed just made up.

Reason 2> One of my wifes working friends had the same thing happen to her only it was #2 in the bed and just made up.

Hotels are not changing the sheets very much and not checking them at all I guess its so gross to even think about.

We just spent 9 days at a Great RV Park in Bradenton Fl., 3 minutes from the Gulf of Mexico, and spent $167.00 for the entire 9 days.
Our son came over from Orlando with his boat and spent $145.00 a night for an efficency on the beach for 2 nights = $290.00 !!!
We would pull out of the RV Park @ 8 in the morning and spend the day parked under the Australian Pines at the 2 mile long county beach and play in the water and sun till lunch and leave to go back to the park to enjoy the pool and rec room for the evening.
Just do not like Hotels and the sometimes rowdy guests that we have encountered there. RV parks will not put up with a lot of that kind of behavior !!!

This is easy. I travel for work alot. Everything mentioned before but for me the difference is the schedule, in the rv we can leave a day early and stop some where on the way (wal-mart in need be). Stop or detour to something on the map that catches our eye once we've started, - this can probably be done on a hotel trip it just isn't. The RETURN TO THE HOUSE (home is the RV) - no one likes it so in our RV it is so much more relaxed, we generally will extend the trip one more night about 2 hours from home. We can always find a cg that has the one amenity that i can never find at a hotel - A POND/LAKE - the little boy and DAD love it. How great is the feeling to pull in one day later and paid maybe $25 instead of $100 helps on gas or rv cost. And the FRIENDS that we meet, no wierd silence when you walk the dogs through a C/G unlike a 90 second elevator ride!!!

That's my 2 cents.

How can you tell someone is camping while on vacation? They are smiling!!!!!!!!!!

Because camp grounds and the RVing community in general do not advertise riduculous commercials depicting annoying Travelocity Gnomes.

If the carpet is stickey - I most likely know the reason.

Mainly, it's my stuff.
