One of my favorite movies of all time is the 1983 classic “National Lampoons Vacation”. Clark Griswold, played by Chevy Chase, plans a two week cross country trip with his family to the amusement park “Wally World”. After enduring every mishap imaginable, (including an aunt dying in the back seat), they reach their destination only to find that the park is closed for two weeks for renovation. This leads Clark to take a security guard hostage and force him to open the park for the family.

You know, many family vacations work out a lot like that. Ok, maybe a relative doesn’t die in the back seat, and maybe you don’t take a park security guard hostage, but hey, it could happen. The trip starts off as a great idea, you plan for weeks and weeks, and by the time you reach the midway point of the trip, all you want to do is go home (and commit mayhem upon your traveling companions, your “loved ones”!)

It doesn’t have to be that way. The Griswolds went cross country in a “Family Truckster”, which was nothing more than a fancy station wagon. The modern traveler can make that cross country jaunt with ease in a Roadtrek, the best selling class B motorhome in North America. The Roadtrek has features that would make the Griswolds cry…including the ability to sleep 4, a kitchen, bathroom, shower and lounge area. It’s almost like not being away from home…no more hotel rooms every night, packing things in and out of the van, and no more restaurants or fast food joints three times a day.

The Roadtrek gets better fuel efficiency than most camper vans, and is easy to handle thru traffic. It seats seven and sleeps four comfortably, and features across the rear storage, providing plenty of space for everything you can’t live without. You don’t have to strap your luggage unto the top of the Roadtrek, which caused the Griswolds all sorts of trouble.

That poor family never got to watch TV while on the road…but that isn’t a problem with a Roadtrek.  An optional flat screen TV can be added to the home theatre, providing you with an entertainment center that takes up little room and will entertain the young ones while the on the roads. The Griswolds never had it so good!
