My boyfriend and I are from the UK and looking to drive east to west coast this summer. We are thinking of starting in New York and working our way to LA, where we'll fly home, taking about a month in total.
We're thinking of hiring an RV, as this seems like the cheapest option rather than hiring a car and then having to pay for motels or camp sites, plus this will save on food costs as it means that we can prepare a lot of our own meals. Would you say that we are right to think this or are there any hidden costs with rvs that we may have overlooked for example? Are we OK to just park the RV at the side of the road or do we have to pay to park in camp sites? If so, how much is this likely to be per night?
We're also mainly looking for advice as to what would be a good route. Do you have any suggestions as to sights or cities that are a must- see or even ones to avoid?
Thanks for your help...
