We're currently on PEI with daytime temps 75-80 and night time lows in the mid-60's under mostly sunny skies. It wasn't all that much different when we spent last July in Alberta, although the nights were a bit colder. Canada has a delightful summer climate in much of the country. I just don't plan on staying here in the winter!

Each time I travel through Alberta, British Columbia and the Yukon on my way to and from Alaska it is some of most awesome scenery and the best road-trip one could find anywhere in this continent.

BTW, Alaska only has two seasons, 7 months of winter and 5 months of summer. Their spring and fall usually consist of a day or two if that.

It's the week with 150 days of heat and sun where I live in BC.

It's only about 3 Mpg less than my F350! And traveling with a 3 yr old can almost double the time for a trip having to make urgent potty breaks. Charleston to Greenville 4 hrs. Extra time for 6 potty breaks, 3 hrs. Same trip in Motorhome, 4.5 hrs with 30 min stop for fuel.

Wow, that's pretty neat. However, it has no shower and pretty small holding tanks, also no couch and you have to slide the roof up to be able to stand, up in it, but still, 30mpg, you can't beat that with a stick.

Very easy to justify when looking back at years of travel with our children and often their friends. IMHO it is THE safest and best way to travel especially with your kids. The places across North America we were able to visit, camp and enjoy the sites. State & National Parks, waterfalls, beaches, countless horse shows and auto events. It just does not get any better.

Justify my MPG in the MH

I'm 67 years old. Worked all my life, put in my time.
Don't have to justify sh*t ( except to my spouse and my maker!

$300 insurance savings due to reduced mileage policy
$1440 in parking

Above doesn't even include depreciation, wear & tear and other maintenance.

That's $3,050 in real cash to pay for for fuel and travel costs for the RV "hobby". We all know that it doesn't offset the overall cost, but it is a start. In this case, all just for being willing to ride a bus for 20 minutes longer than driving each way. I guess I see that as worth it for the vacation payback and I can do my email on the bus anyway, getting back part of the commute time lost and less stress.

For those not yet retired, how do you justify your motorhome MPG? No snide comments please. .
I don't!

Happy camping!!! See y'all down the road!!!
