Reply To: First time RAGBRAI – considering RV'ing it

RV’ing certainly has its advantages, notably in creature comforts, but camping also has some benefits.  The number one attraction of RAGBRAI for me is freedom.  It’s the one week of the year when I have no responsibilities whatsoever, short of getting myself from town to town.  The biggest decision I make all day is where to stop for breakfast.  Adding the overhead of being responsible for a vehicle and/or entourage would detract from the prime reason for being there. Now, if I had complete faith in my RV driver and could turn 100% of the logistics over to him or her, that would be the best of both worlds, but if it were my own RV, I don’t think I’d be able to do that.  That’s just me – your mileage may differ.

I also find the fear of long lines to be overblown.  The longest Kybo lines all day are in the pass-through towns where an RV will be of no use.  They’re sometimes long, but they move fast.  If a food vendor or shower line is too long, eat somewhere else or shower another time.  The best way to enjoy RAGBRAI is to flow with it, not fight against it.
