The kids can have a say in the travel plans, which you can change on the fly. Plus, you can skip checking and checking out - and no more waiting for bags to roll off the luggage carousel.
RVing also makes sense from a dollars-and-cents standpoint. You won't have to wrestle the three-headed monster of airfare, hotel and car rental rates - after all, lodging is included! And by cooking your own meals, you'll save even more.
Here are five fabulous finds for inexpensive family trips in an RV:
- For well-planned getaways: Research key points of interest ahead of time and know the distances between them. Plan your trip, however loosely, accordingly. An atlas is a good idea, too - you'll save on gas by not getting lost.
- Plan inexpensive family trips with an educational twist: Some museums have free admission days. Again, a bit of planning can help you save on fun things to do.
- For cheap trips through America's national parks: Try an "America the Beautiful" annual pass from the National Parks Service. If you plan to visit several parks, you'll recoup your investment quickly.
- For inexpensive family trips with no frills: There's always Wal-Mart. The big-box retailer offers free overnight RV parking.
