The moving motel room

On my way home from work the other day, I saw this driving down the road. I couldn't resist getting a picture of it. The sheer size of it amazed me. Then the progression from the huge RV to the smaller car (although not very small) and then to the bikes was intriguing. Finally, the idea of dragging around a car making the handling of this monstrosity even more difficult was too much for me.

You can click on the picture to get a larger view. It's not a very good picture because I took it while I was driving (!) through the windshield of the car. They were turning into a campground. If you can call staying in that thing camping.

I jokingly call it a "moving motel room" in my title but it's more like a moving motel suite. I guess you save the money of needing to rent a motel or cottage at your destination but what about the cost of gas? And if they didn't buy this RV but only rented it, wouldn't that cost factor into your calculations? There is probably a very good reason for them choosing to vacation this way. I just don't get it. Maybe this is all they have and don't own or rent a home. At least they brought the station wagon along. I'd hate to be in our town when they decided to drive the RV down the main street.

Well, your wife thinks that would be the way to travel across country. No awful motels like in Lancaster NH. Clean bathroom, cook yourself.
But it is too much to travel with like these guys are doing. No I am not a republican. The pink bike reminds me of my old one, says Emma
