Sitting behind the wheel in that cushy captain’s chair doesn’t provide much in the way of exercise. (No, pushing the cruise control button doesn’t count!)
Once you get parked and set up, it’s time to explore your surroundings. You may want to get some exercise, too.
Many RVers prefer to carry bicycles on the back instead of towing a car behind their motorhome. Bicycling is good exercise, plus you don’t have to be concerned about getting in a spot where you can’t back up the RV because of the car on the tow bar.
Another alternative — if you want motorized transportation but don’t want the hassle of towing — is to carry a small scooter on the back bumper.
Using a hitch extender, I both carried a motorcycle and towed a car when we were full time RVers. There are a lot of different ways you can carry a second mode of transportation.
Whichever you choose, having a way to get around at the campground will definitely come in handy!
I’ve been involved in RVing for over 50 years — including camping, building, repairing, and even selling RVs and motorhomes. I’ve owned, used, and repaired almost every class and style of RV ever made. I do all of my own repair work. My other interests include cooking, living with an aging dog, and dealing with diabetic issues. If you can combine a grease monkey with a computer geek, throw in a touch of information nut and organization freak, combined with a little bit of storyteller… you’ve got a good idea of who I am. To date, I've shared my RV knowledge in over 300 articles here at The Fun Times Guide!
