Agreed! Replaced my suburban and no more potty stops! Only pull in when the RV needs to! Cost is about 3 X a nice suburban or truck and offers 10 X the convenience. I parallel park on streets and back into spaces at restaurants (overhang the grass).

Have to say I can't think of any place I wished I was in a smaller vehicle, but have been dozens of times I was glad I had the beast!

If you work until you have everything you 'WANT' - it will probably be too late to enjoy it.
Live in the Moment and enjoy today.

I can't agree enough that these are the greatest vehicles.

I feel we don't use it enough. Some weekends when we don't have a trip, like tomorrow, I'll bring it home just to use it around town for the weekend.

And I have to say, given the option of having anything in its price range, be it a sport car or boat or whatever, I'll always choose the interstate. I have owned all types and can honestly say that my interstate comes first.

No matter what kind of vehicle you choose, your kids will cherish the time you spend together. When I was small (back when the original Mickey Mouse Club was on), we usually tent camped using the family car but sometimes we had rented VW Westfalias, pop-up trailers or a full-sized van. Yes, a lot of the time it was uncomforatable but we learned to get along. I remember being hot and being cold but the memories I cherish are of the time we spent together, the people we met along the way, and how amazingly beautiful this country is.

Thanks again to everyone for your thoughts and ideas. We are going for it!! Been looking a a bunch of different rigs, and we have settled on a 4x4 interstate, so we can use it for our bi-weekly ski trips to Tahoe (which is anywhere from 4 to 6 hours depending upon weather) after our summer trip is done. I believe the extra $ is worth it for extra usage. Will post some pics!
