Summary: I like the idea of being able to see the wonders of America from the road — the World’s Wonder View Tower in Genoa, Colorado, and Yellowstone Park are a couple of spots on my bucket list.

That idea of staying a few months at a time in a fully loaded campground, wi-fi and all, to coordinate with nice weather around the U.S. is exciting to me. I like the simple approach of having everything you need right there in the camper, keeping everything compact, and being able to pick up and move to the next locale on a whim.
