Texas RV vs. Hotel

Should you buy that new RV at ExploreUSA RV Supercenter, a Texas Airstream dealer or should you continue staying in hotels? That’s the big question, and it may take some thought. You may find that if you add up the cost of hotels and eating out that the RV will pay for itself after several years. Alternatively, you may want to take some lengthy trips because you’ve recently retired. No matter which reason, buying an RV at ExploreUSA RV Supercenter could be the better decision.

Benefit #1: You don’t have to eat out all the time. You can still eat out, but you can also cook home-cooked meals. You also have a refrigerator and freezer to store food. If you are in a hotel, you get to pay extra for that perk. Sometimes, you may find a hotel that doesn’t even offer a mini-fridge. And, since an RV refrigerator is larger than a mini-fridge, you can store more food in there — that means less trips to the store and more time for fun.

Benefit #2: When you’re at a hotel you don’t get to sit by the fire at night. You can do that every night if you camp in an RV. Part of camping is relaxing by the fire and roasting marshmallows. Try that in a hotel!

Benefit #3: You don’t have to worry about whether you have a room key when you come and go. Your RV keys are probably on your key ring, which you take with you anyway. And, if you’ve ever had a room key that doesn’t work just right and it takes 17 times to get it to activate the lock, you know how annoying that is. With an RV, you don’t have to worry about that.

Benefit #4: You can go where you want to go. If you choose to camp by a lake, you’ll always find a spot. If there is an event happening in town, you may not get the hotel you want — you’ll either be stuck too far from the festivities or you may end up in a seedy hotel because that’s all that’s left.

Benefit #5: Your family is with you in the same area. You still have your privacy, as most RVs have a private front room, but your kids are right there with you. In a hotel, if you want privacy, you have to get a separate room for the kids. If you do elect to have the kids in the same room, you’ll have to pay extra for the cots or two kids have to share a bed.
