A writer’s trip to Yellowstone National Park in a rented motorhome provided the RV industry with more good publicity in the Lexington (Ky.) Herald-Leader.
The writer, Andy Mead, traveled with his wife and 8-year-old twins to Yellowstone last year. As he reported in an article distributed by Knight Ridder/Tribune Information Services:
“Driving your own motel room has a lot of advantages, especially when you’re trying to be unharried, with children. It was nice to have room for the kids to move around. Nice to have a small kitchen to brew coffee and prepare meals. Nice to have a TV for watching videos.
“And the bathroom. The bathroom alone was worth the $1,400 we paid for 10 days of RV rental.”
Mead added, “You might think all that togetherness would cause friction, but we got along pretty well. We liked our children more, not less, at the end of the vacation.”
