Because we had to spend a night in downtown Atlanta at a hotel with a low-roofed parking garage, we left the Roadtrek back home.
I missed it every mile.
We spent a night in motels going and coming and that alone was frustrating. The first motel cost $98. The second was $139. Though both were part of well-known national chains, we found the rooms to be much less clean than our Roadtrek and the beds not nearly as comfortable.
We ate on the road, stopping a fast food restaurants. We could have eaten much healthier and more comfortably in the motor coach, using the fridge, the convection oven and the cooktop to bring and prepare our own food.
And we would have had a lot more fun in a campground, rather than alongside a busy interstate.
On the way home, we stopped in Troy, Ohio and visited the huge Arbogast RV Center. We spend an hour and a half climbing in and new and used Roadtreks, the new 2013 Airtream trailers, a couple of Fifth Wheels and some Class A's.
I must admit, the Class A's really got me thinking, especially as I contemplate long trips I want to do starting this summer. All that room and luxury got me drooling.
The quick road trip – down to watch a grandson graduate from high school – would have been so much more enjoyable in our Roadtrek. While we may have made a little better time in our car than had we taken our motor home, the drive was a burden rather than an adventure.
And that's what Roadtreking is… exciting, fun, always an adventure.
Roadtreklesss… not so much.
