This is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to teardrops and vintage trailers. Plan on spending some time there to see the great variety of interesting and gaily decorated casinos and some of the many free attractions. The shows are very expensive, but there are also many free ones you can see at the various casinos such as the acts that take place at the Circus Circus and the Rio.
More Bang for Your Buck. A used travel trailer will hold it’s worth longer than a new trailer. A used trailer is the way to go if you are on a looking to save money or don’t want to be stuck with making payments for 10 years. You could get a used 252 with all the bells and whistles cheaper than a NEW 202 plain jane travel trailer.
For trips shorter than 5 or 6 hours, frozen meat will probably stay frozen in a cooler, especially in cool, winter weather. If you are going to be traveling for longer periods, you can use those frozen, blue ice packs. Pack them next to the edge of the cooler and on top of the meat. Think about where the warmth will be coming from, the top and the sides. Don’t put ice on frozen meat, the ice may actually be warmer than the meat, and, because it will melt into water, ice will thaw the meat faster than air would.
Also, I wanted to mention that occasionally I send out a unique newsletter with my secret and unique money saving tips, great deals on flights, and special locations unknown to the average tourist (at bargain prices). You really can travel on a super small budget to exotic locations if you have all the information the travel companies don’t want you to know about!
Great information Chitrangada. We don’t travel often other than to visit family in different Australian states maybe once er year. We have only been overseas once and that was to Indonesia. However you are correct that travel is much easier now than in the past and is making the world a smaller place for many of us. When we do fly we make all our bookings online and save money by booking early if possible. Very well written, voted up.
jonnycomelately: Thanks so much for your kind words. You are absolutely on target in terms of how much physical labor can be required for RV travel. However, here in the states we have a number of clubs singles can join so that they do not have to travel alone. I recently wrote a hub about that very topic. You can find it on my profile page. It is true that many people don’t leave their coaches for visits as they once did, but I am not shy. If I want to chat, I simply knock on the door. Once I do that, you’d be surprised how happy people are to visit and how helpful they can be. Technology will never replace US…never! Thanks for stopping by.
