For those of you who do not tow how do you site-see once you reach your destination? Do you just hook up and then unhook anytime you want to leave the campground and go around in your RV? Do you rental car? We don't plan to try to tow until we have some experience with this new rig and until my honey gets comfortable driving it. We would appreciate any comments/suggestions anyone would care to share!
We went with a 23' class C for the very reason that we did not ever want to tow a car again. We have had no problems parking our class C at the places we want to see. We even parked at our favorite chicken fried steak joint in the middle of San Antonio, TX.
I hated towing a car. It made our travel less spontaneous. We were always worried that if we took a country road and had to backtrack we'd have to unhook and rehook the car. The auxilliary braking system is a royal pain to set up. Having to run the car through its gears ever two hundred miles and worrying about the lights working are all things, I am happily living without.
Right now we are on a journey with out Coachmen 21 QB and no towed. We are having a great time. Set up is a breeze. Park, plug and that's it. A couple of times we have had to level, but it's not that common.
I bought a little sign that says "campsite occupied" on line thinking I might have to use it when we did a day trip, but most RV parks reserve your site and won't put anyone else in it if you are gone during the day. Just make sure you let the management know that you are returning later.
I would never ever go back to towing a car. Towing a car is the worst part of RVing for me.
