Motor homes can be a pleasant way to travel, letting you stay at a campsite, alongside a picturesque stream, or even on the street at Aunt Matilda's for the annual family get-together.
But things change when you need to run into town for groceries or want to take a sightseeing trip after you've set up camp. Driving that beast along narrow and twisty roads, navigating in urban traffic, trying to find parking spots, and paying for the additional fuel it's consuming can be anything but pleasant.
With a small car or truck available, however, motor home travelers don't have to stow all their gear and pull up the stakes every time they want to go somewhere. That's why it is not uncommon to see big RVs pulling smaller vehicles behind them. That extra set of wheels, often in the form of a little SUV or subcompact car, makes it so much easier to get around.
