Big and Beautiful -- and born in Elkhart. We call it our rolling condo. It's stocked with everything a vacation home would have -- linens, kitchen appliances, a bbq, beach umbrellas, fishing poles, pool toys, board games, even a surround sound home theater system with satellite TV. We kept a spare highchair and crib in there when our kids were younger. We take our Jeep with us where ever we go, and can even bring along a motorcycle if the destination suits. It's taken us to some amazing places most will never see, because they just fly over -- Carlsbad Caverns, Glacier Nat'l Park, Four Co

Zion National Park, Summer 2009 Driving the 'Original RV'... a VW Westfalia PopTop Camper Mine is an 82 Vanagon, last full year of the aircooled engine models. It started as a $1,500 ebay find and now I've got about $20K in it. I love it, it has everything (sink, stove, fridge, 2 beds... everythings but a port-a-potty) Not all RVs are created equal

2005 Aliner LXE, folding hard sided camper trailer - no canvas! This small camper contains a full queen sized bed that pivots to reveal substantial storage underneath. It also has heating and air conditioning, LED and fluorescent lighting, a kitchen with three burner stove, microwave and refrigerator with freezer, and a bath with flush toilet and a full shower with hot water. This camper can go "off grid" for weeks, thanks to a portable battery unit that supplies power when there's no electricity available, and recharges while we drive.

I finished restoring my 1962 Shasta Airflyte travel trailer in 2006 to pull behind my 1958 Edsel Ranger, and have since taken it on many trips in the Pacific Northwest, and across the country in the summer of 2007. The Shasta is simple, rugged and comfortable, and the birch interior is cozy and warm. The car-trailer combo is a great conversation starter wherever we stop, and helps me connect better with people and the land as we visit all different parts of America. And for me, that is the reason for trailering in America. (Pictured: traveling through Yellowstone Park)

Our Motor Home give us a chance to get away and spend quality time together. My wife and I like going to the NHRA drag races in NJ and with our RV we can go to the races, stay right at the track, and save money. We don't have to buy food at the track or spend money on motels. Once a month we try to go camping with family and friends just to get away. I am self employeed and we have not been able to take a vacation in years, so our vacation is the few weekend we get to spend camping and making day trips to beaches and parks. We love visiting different camp grounds and meeting people.

Our 2005 VW Sunstar gets 16 MPG. Hauled two of us and a great 65 pound dog over 12,000 miles last winter! We have everything we need in that RV and love the freedom it gives to go and explore. Its small enough to be inconspicuous in some spots and big enough to live out of for 75 days.... Not too mention that its a Volkswagon and holds its resale vaule quite well.

The future of RV's, from Yesteryear. These are my two Toyota based RV's that are what all RV's will soon look like. A look at current European RV's will prove this out. Both of these are more than big enough for two adults, the one on the right big enough for 2 adults and two kids. Both get 20MPG, both are of fiberglass construction, and both, thanks to a reliable chassis, will last for years. The Pop-up is a 19' long, 1989 Sunrader Adventure-II and was the last one built, and the rear opening unit is a 17' long, 1978 (Yes 1978), Sunrader that features a California King Size bed. Now that

There is no better (nor cheaper) way to see the country. Contrary to popular opinion, when you compare the costs of flying, hotels, and meals out to gas and camping fees for an RV, it's way cheaper to camp. Plus, you can easily find campgrounds with hot showers, flush toilets and even pools/hot tubs. We just finished a 3 week trip to the Badlands, Yellowstone, Glacier, Grand Tetons, and Mount Rushmore that we'd never been able to afford otherwise. Our kids got an education of a lifetime while having fun. Back at home, we've rented a river site under trees with hookups that we can use anyt

Our family has traveled to forty states and ten National Parks with our RV. We absolutely love being able to bring along with us the many comforts of home. We travel with two adults, two Boxer dogs, a cat and our thirteen year old daughter and our trailer has plenty of room and storage space to stow away all of the necessities for each of us. Owning our RV has made it possible for us to travel to many of the most beautiful places in America and the memories we have made and are continuing to make are priceless. We can't wait to get "on the road again" very soon.

It's paid for! Alot of older RV's are great deals especially for the part timer who only takes short weekend trips usually within a couple of hours of where I live. I don't need dual tip outs. I need dependability and affordability and an air conditioned bed.

We love our RV because it lets our dog, Daisy, travel with us. This photo shows her relaxing on the dashboard of our Allegro Bus. Another real benefit of the RV lifestyle is that it allows you to visit America and sleep in your own bed. And, perhaps best of all, is that we have met so many really interesting and good people in the campgrounds! If you're feeling down about the state of the country, we suggest you get an RV and use it. It will remind you that this is a great country full of wonderful people.

There are so many beautiful sights to see in the United States and traveling in our Trek motorhome allows us to see the country. When we get bored in one area we just turn on the motor and head on down the road! The Trek is a very comfortable way to travel and offers a large living area for a small motorhome.

We love our RV because it fits our lifestyle completely. I drag race and we use it to tow our tailer with the race car in it to the track and we always have our home with us. It has alot of storage space and is fun to drive. We use it to go on trips weather it be camping or just sight seeing or what ever. We can plan on trips and just go knowing we can stop just about any place to sleep in our own bed. Food is always there without stopping at resturants and easily served on the road. It has been the greatest thing we have purchased in along time. We have been RVing for 20 years, in a motorhome

Love my 04 Fleetwood 19Ft Pioneer. I have driven from Anchorage, Alaska down to Montana, have toured all of the NW with it and I can't wait to get going again. The smaller size makes a lot more campground sites accessible and I like being able to unhitch if I want to stay somewhere for a longer time.

Jerome, Dara and the Titanium. We have been RV'ing for approx two years. We are both retired and this recreation gives us the ability to move about the country. To stay for infinite amounts of time without the packing and unpacking involved with hotel stays. We sleep in our bed, cook on our stove. The views, the climate and terrain changes at our whim. There are CG deals out there to be had if you look for them. The other thing is the people that we meet. We have met people and maintained friendships throughout. No matter where we're from or what we did, we have the RV bug and wanderlust in c

My friends and I with our 1960s vintage Land Rovers with the factory-authorized Dormobile camper conversions. The seats all fold flat to make a double bed, and there are two bunks that fold out up top, allowing them to sleep 4. This, combined with Land Rover's go-anywhere capability, make the perfect vehicle for exploring the remote areas we love. This photo was taken on the historic Mojave Wagon Road in California.
