Well said Ben! I will throw one more issue out there to consider when comparing RV traveling to car/motel traveling. Friends of ours, who also have a Challenger coach, decided 2 years ago to take an extended car/motel vacation. After they were home for a week or so they noticed they were both having a rash of some sort, or at least that is what they thought. What had happened was they picked up bed bugs in one of the last motels they stayed in! They only stayed in nice motels, like chain places for between $100 and $150 per night.
They called several exterminator companies and finally contracted with one for around $2,500. The company had them move out for a week. They built a huge tent over their whole house and pumped it full of poison and heat. According to the company they used about 40% or more of the motels in the U.S. have had bed bug problems.
If nothing else would steer you toward traveling in an RV their story would!
