15 Reasons Why I Like My RV Better Than A Hotel
My wife and I recently had to stay in a 4-star hotel while attending a business meeting. While nice, I quickly began to miss our RV. Here are 15 reasons why I like my RV better than a luxury hotel.
1. I don’t have to pack or unpack.
2. I know where to find my stuff without sifting through a suitcase.
3. I can step out the door of my RV into the outdoors, unlike a hotel where I have to go out the hotel room door, down the hall, wait for the elevator, go down the elevator and out the door into the concrete jungle.
4. I can have my morning cup of tea how I like it.
With my RV, I have my favorite blend with me, clover honey to sweeten it with, I can enjoy it piping hot and not have to get dressed to go get it from the restaurant.
5. Breakfast doesn’t cost $20 per person and I can enjoy it however I choose to dress.
6. I don’t have to worry about how much to tip the housekeeper.
7. The pillow is just right!
8. I can always open the windows in my RV to enjoy some fresh air (and a great view).
9. You never have someone clomping across the floor above you.
10. I can have more than a duvet and sheet on my bed.
11. I can find the TP in the middle of the night without turning on a light.
12. I don’t have to go any further than my RV refrigerator to find fresh vegetables.
13. I never return from a day of exploring only to find room service hasn’t made up my room yet.
14. I don’t have to rent a car.
15. It’s my dirt inside my RV, not somebody else’s.
Preferring my little ol’ RV over a luxury hotel, an adventure in RVing I will take any time! How about you, do you prefer your RV over a hotel? Please share.
Dave Helgeson’s many roles in the RV industry started before he even had a driver’s license. His grandparents and father owned an RV dealership before the term “RV” had been coined, and Dave played a pivotal role in nearly every position of an RV dealership. He and his wife Cheri launched their own RV dealership in the Pacific Northwest. The duo also spent 29 years overseeing regional RV shows. Dave has also served as President of a local chapter of the Recreational Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA), worked on the board of advisors for the RV Technician Program of a local technical college, and served as a board member of the Manufactured Home and RV Association. Dave’s reputation earned him the title of “The foremost expert on boondocking,” bestowed by RV industry icon, the late Gary Bunzer (The RV Doctor). When he’s not out boondocking, you’ll find Dave in the spotlight at RV shows across the country, giving seminars about all things RVing. He and Cheri currently roam in their fifth travel trailer, with Dave doing all the service, repair and modifications to his own unit.
