We’re planning on a road trip vacation this year stopping first at my Dad’s house in Arkansas and then on to Memphis and Graceland. Can we afford this trip? Nope! Not yet but if we sell off a few things and continue on this path of no spending then we should be able to pull this off. I figure 2 tanks of gas will round out to about $550.00 each way so $1,100.00 in gas (4 tanks total), throw in an extra $150.00 in for good measure because we’ll be using the wife’s Escape to run around and the RV will either get 8mpg or less, if less the extra $ will be needed.
We could almost go on a cruise for the gas money alone! Total miles just for the RV on this trip will be 1,531 for the trip plus another 45 miles to get the RV from storage. We aren’t sure how many days we’ll be able to take off for this trip or even when we’re going yet but when we do, this will be where we go. We haven’t had a real vacation in years so I hope this works out! It would be perfect if we could make it 2 weeks but that’s doubtful at this point.
It will give us a chance to stretch the RV’s legs and see how she’ll do on a real road trip though and will also let us know how she might hold up going full time if the need should arise.
