Because traveling with a group of friends is fun. Not for everyone of course, but for people who enjoy people, and socializing, what could be more fun than a caravan with friends?
Keep in mind Dave that some people actually enjoy socializing. Not everyone is looking for solitude.
We've been on a short 12-day caravan with 10 other Airstreamers and it was great fun. Yes, there are dinners, happy hours, games, morning coffee, tours, and events. But, you can always go off alone if you like too.
We also do our own trips, and we do rallies too. It's all good as far as I am concerned.
I think Airstreaming is one of the best social opportunities we have these days.
As to the O/P, a short caravan can be anything you want. It's not all that hard to put together. Pick a little route of a few hundred miles that has some interesting stops, and some campgrounds, and make a little plan. Post your idea, and see if you can get half a dozen other to join you! Make it what you want!
