Comfort OutWeighs cost of RVing

High gas prices aren't going to stop a few recreational vehicle owners from going on vacation this summer.

Bob Benner owns a Safari Trek, and has owned an RV for the past 15 years. He said current gas prices aren't stopping him and his wife from using their RV. In fact they just returned from Florida at the end of February.

Benner said they would take shorter trips rather than discontinue using their RV. They use unleaded gas and get about 8 to 10 mpg, but the benefits of owning an RV outweigh the costs, Benner said, noting the comforts of a bed and kitchen as compared to a tent, Benner said.

Wendy Carswell said the benefits of her RV are cooking her own food, the comfortable bed and the overall savings on vacations.

Carswell, her husband and two children recently took a trip in their RV to Disney World in Florida, and she said even with gas prices, the cost of the trip was less than booking flights and a hotel.
