Well the only RV our Son traveled on was our sail boat. He towed the little plastic boat along side on a string. Later he towed a fishing lure. Now, he would drive the RV.
Travel Safe and with a Smile! Pat

Our daughter is old and married but way back in the early 90s we had to take a road trip from Michigan to Arizona, 36 hours non stop in an Escort station wagon.

We bought her a Sega Game Gear with one game, Echo The Dolphin, and a box of Cheez-Its. We only stopped for potty breaks and drive through food. She was an expert at Echo The Dolphin by the time we got there. Once there a freind had a brand new 5th wheel set up for us to use, she did not need anything other than her imagination to run around collecting rocks and leaves and get chased by an occasional javelina in the desert.

This was also during school so we made arrangements with her teacher for some work and she kept a pretty good journal, she was around 8.

When we have great nieces and nephews the wife usually brings some simple crafts like rock painting or making jar lanterns with a scavenger hunt but mostly just let them run and play.

We have a relative who recently sold their trailer because their 8 year old boy would just sit inside and complain there was nothing to do. They never required him to go outside and play, he went nowhere without his iPad.

When we camp at state parks it makes me happy to see kids outside just being kids, running, biking, chasing each other, etc...

On a side note, a few weeks ago we were in a state park, a brother and sister were playing, she got mad at him for some reason and called him a ramen noodle.

Depending how long the trip: Multiple Square Knots with hands tied behind their backs! It's harder now that they're in their forties.

We only go to our campground, and it's 240 miles.

The grandkids are into electronic games along the way. They may take in the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains, but otherwise ignore the scenery.

I have a 6yr and 11yr old, boy and girl respectively. They usually beat each other up, throw stuff around and generally act crazy anytime the coach is in motion. On the rare times they are not doing WWF they watch movies, play board games, and love to color/draw. Even on the longest rides I canít get them to sleep. We also have a dog and cat as well. Itís like a traveling circus inside the rv while driving. When we get to the CG it usually looks like someone emptied the entire contents of all the cabinets on to the floor. Sadly I wouldnít have it any other way!

My wife and I are alone on a trip right now in the NY Finger lakes. The coach is clean, not messy, and nobody is fighting. I never knew camping was so much fun!

Lots of stops, and stuff to entertain my son in the car. Drawing stuff, the tablet for movies/educational games, snacks/food. He does pretty well in long stretches being 4 years old. As long as we are consistently making stops to get out of the vehicles. We've gone crossed country and he tends to burn out of after about 6 hours or so. But we make sure he's comfy.
