The hybrid Air Travel/RV Rental Vacation
Has anyone ever taken a long trip but rather than drive across the country through parts not part of the vacation they fly to a distant location and then pick up a rental RV for travel in that area.
Years ago I did this with my family for a trip to Alaska. Flew to Anchorage, picked up a nice Class C, then traveled the state for a few weeks.
Back then the air fare was far more than the cost of gas but today the reverse is true.
Just wondering if any out there have given this any consideration in order to cut down today's thousands of dollars fuel cost for a long distance vacation.
As an example I can fly today from Seattle to Boston for as little as $102. An FR3 32DS in Boston (area) rents for $225/night.
The driving distance from here to there and back is over 6,000 miles and over 800 gallons of gasoline.
At only $5/gallon that's $4000 and a bunch of miles before I get to see what I want to. Am strongly considering this kind of trip. 10 days of rental, even with the mileage charge and fuel costs would still leave a lot of $$$ in the wallet for travel closer to home with my TV/TT.
Has anyone else done this? Perhaps planning something similar now that fuel costs are up?
BTW, I can pack just aboit everything I need except food in a large Hockey Gear bag including sleeping and cooking gear. First stop Walmart and ready to go.
