Do It Yourself RV has posted an interesting article on eight reasons why RV travel is better than air travel.
Having done both myself, I tend to agree. Sure, you will get to a destination a lot faster by plane, but there's a lot of scenery that's missed. Why fly if one is not in a hurry?
It is also a matter of taste. One person may love air travel, while another detests it. The same goes with RV traveling. One may love it and another doesn't.

Airlines have made bad headlines so far in 2017. United sparked a worldwide uproar after dragging a passenger off a flight, then shortly after, made the news again when a scorpion fell from the overhead bin and stung a traveler.

But things are different when you’re traveling in an RV. Of course, driving won’t get you there nearly as fast. But it will give you a more memorable experience in the long run. So the next time you’re planning a trip, consider hitting the road instead of catching a flight. These are just eight of the many reasons why you’ll be glad you did.
