Though modern recreational vehicles are almost like a fully furnished apartment house on wheels, affording all the comforts and luxuries conceivable can be a real pain. Then you have to maintain, service and stow when not in use. Besides, the huge initial investment on these RVs appears to be sheer wastage of hard earned money, since many users end up not using them often. Owning a recreational vehicle also means lot of work. You have to load and unload all the equipment and gear every time you go somewhere. A lot of the work can go in setting up camp, hooking up water, checking about the sanitation, electricity (the batteries will go down if left unattended the whole of winter) and drainage (the pipes invariably get clogged up). Lubrication, tune up, servicing, etc are sure to make you go roving mad.
Rent a recreational vehicle instead
If you take my tip, rent a recreational vehicle first and see how it suits you. With a valid driver’s license, you are free to rent a recreational vehicle that you can test drive for a week or so. See how it feels. If you are not used to drive heavy unwieldy wide-bodied vehicles, you may hit the curves every time you take a turn. Take an impassionate view. Do you really enjoy being in it or are you indulging yourself? Think also of all the possibilities as you are using it and see if it still appeals to you. Rent a recreational vehicle to be sure of the monster.

Some useful tips before you rent a recreational vehicle
