Why we travel in an RV

This is one of the best articles I’ve read about traveling by RV.  What makes it so interesting is, Andy Isaacson, a New York Times travel writer,  rents an RV from Cruise America so this was his first experience.  He definitely captures the draw of RV travel in that it suits every interest.  First,  he joins in a huge group rally.  Then turns around and hits the back roads and drives up a forest road to stay by a stream with no one around and visits with locals at small out-of-the way towns. 

He also makes the point at the end that it might not be a big money saving way to travel.  But, what is does offer is freedom….

Captain of a “rig” for the first time, the author cruises through the West, sleeping at a Walmart, joining the “Greatest RV Rally in the World” and celebrating the freedom to roam.
