Looking for a home that’s away from home? Renting a motor home in California is a wonderful way to get closer to nature and a way to save money.
There are lots of reasons why people end up buying a motor home instead of another home – it’s a great way to travel, it gets you out into the sun far longer and allows you to see more of your surroundings.
But as fun and exciting as motor homes are, they also have their disadvantages. motor homes are expensive and you’ll need a solid plan to save yourself from a financial disaster. Here’s a plan that worked for me.
Having lived on the west coast for most of my life, I’ve seen the Pacific Ocean surf up and down every coast I’ve known. People build these campers up and live in them year round, as if they were actually on the ocean. Then you have to figure out if you can afford to buy yourself a motor home to use your boat and go see the places you want to see or stay at.
There are a few ways to save money on motor home rentals. If you already own one and you don’t use it much, you might be able to sell it. I’ve heard many people say that giving themselves a financial shock by renting the motor home for a year was one of the best ways to save money they could find.
Another way to reduce costs is to plan your trip a little before you leave. If you know what you want to do and see, you can structure your vacation so that you aren’t answering to every new place you see.
This way you can get a good price and have the freedom to change your destination or date, plus, you can set the date of your arrival and departure and make sure you arrive a little early or a little late.
If you know you want to see more of California, that’s a great way to do it. Unless you know and like seeing all of California, you won’t see it in a single trip. It takes time to see everything.
That said, there are so many sights to see in California. The more you go, the more you will see. It’s truly amazing how many things there are to see. Finding a unique area is like finding a needle in a haystack. Everyone has something that they want to see.
There is a new travel web site called priced.com that has a directory of all the federal, state, county and city parks in the United States. It shows you how much an entrance fee, picnic area or campground cost is. It also shows you how much it costs to camp out for the night.
There is a search function on the site and you can find campgrounds, parks, reopened rest stops and even pet parks, but it’s not perfect. I still worry about getting lost navigating the state and local sites. You know what would be better than getting lost as we all do.
The other problem with the old model is everyone had to beunteered to run the place. If I had owned a motor home and traveled as a customer, I would have had a friend or relative post information about what they did each day. The problem with that system is everyone would just think it was average work because it wasn’t.
I think a better option is Trip Replies Plus. They have a web site that allows you to post a brief statement of your itinerary on anything you like including a map. Then, people can contact you via the site to ask more questions and make suggestions for your itinerary. h ow they work? I’m not sure how since I never had a real problem with them until I encountered this one. I always thought that my friends and family would think it was smart to just hire a driver to help take their vacations, but since I never went with anyone before, I don’t know how common this option might be.
Why not just drive there and use the rest stop? Let’s see if we can’t do something about the stop signs. Most of theseandalched parking areas are posted outside and are easy to find. The problem is that they are all in different states and none of them have official seals. Since I’m in New York and I don’t live in New York City, I’m going to assume that New York State has the most official barriers.
How does New York State compare to California? Read through this list and tell me how many times your eyes have seen a car stop sign and a sign wishing you to turn around:
*all barrier broken loose* all barrier not renewed
* abandoned barrier* bent barrier* concealment sign* incorrect sign
* duplicate sign
