10 Reasons Why RV Vacations Are Better!

You can also listen to our RV Family Travel Atlas podcast: 10 Reasons RV Vacations are Better A few years ago, a great hotel deal tempted us into booking a weekend getaway with the boys. We had never stayed in a hotel with them, and we were quite worried that everything, including sippy cups and blankies, would hit the fan. Well, it did. Two nights in a hotel room with our two year olds had us running back to kiss the road our RV traveled on. After yelling don’t touch that three million times and locking ourselves in the bathroom to eat... Read More
