I like taking the trailer because I hate dragging my "stuff" in and out of the home of the people we are visiting. I hate knowing they have to do something special to host us. I just want them to relax so we can enjoy each other's company.

We do take advantage of their showers, though.

For sure, much better than the small one in the trailer.

I do spend lots of time in the guests house, and with them. Usually the reason I went. It is just that the trailer gives me a retreat to my own home. when needed.

when we had our 13 footer we took it everywhere with us, it was great. when we got the 17 footer, my van was getting tired, and I spent too much time worrying about gas prices. Now that we have the envoy , we were just talking about how for our sanity when visiting relatives we would start taking the camper again,

I often tow my ParkLiner caravan to friends houses for the weekends, as well as if I have to stay a night at my parents house. I love my rolling home and its slowly being modified to be comfortable to me. This way when Im tired I can take a nap...or if I want some alone time. Yesterday after working in the heat for a while I decided I wanted to take a nap before we went to an evening bbq. My friend went and did his thing, I went back to my own bed and got to take a nice nap lol!

I did the same thing with my little red home built gypsy vardo...I dig the lifestyle of the gypsies lol!
