Dinghies and Other Possible Options ...
The more we get into this process of choosing what we want, the more I wonder about what I want as far as extra wheels. Do I just bring a couple of bikes? Do I tow a small trailer with a couple of small mopeds or a scooter or two?
My wife and I will be camping a lot in RV parks all "plugged in," probably a few days to a week or so at a time. Seems like it might be a pain to strike camp, disconnect and then reconnect the hook-ups and re-camp -- just to go to the store. No mater how organized I get, I seem to forget something we need that requires another trip.
There's probably always stuff lying around in a van that would/could roll around if not secured, even on a short trip. I'm also considering a small screened-in room to surround the awning area for particularly buggy climes, especially in the South. I'm sure in less than 10 to 15 minutes I could strike and in another 10 - 15 re-set, but it seems like it might get old. We're probably going to be traveling for 4 - 6 months at a shot. Am I being a wuss?
What do y'all do? Is this stuff a serious consideration? If you have motorized dinghies, what do you have and how do you use it/them?
I'm also concerned about too much weight effecting MPG and want to use really fuel-effective vehicles, if we go that route.
