RE: Do you always need an RV Park ? .....

We routinely "boondock" or camp without hookups outside of RV parks. We used to do this with a towable and that was much more difficult but still rewarding. We did it with our Class C and now Class A DP. We actually plan a few days of boondocking into our trips to make the outgoing and return trips less stressful. It does require some preparation i.e. have enough water, make sure the grey / black tanks are empty.

RE: Towing

Double towing is legal in some states.

RE: Class A travel without interstates

We used to have towable units our last one was supposed to be a 29' but in reality was actually 36' front to back including tongue and bumper. We towed it with a one ton long box crew cab truck that was 22' long. This means we were 58' long. I parallel parked in downtown areas and it was a nightmare. We then got a Class C 31' but in reality it was 33.5'. The real bummer was that it had a 218" wheel base and a 45 degree wheel cut. This meant that it had a terrible turning radius. The combination of the 45 degree wheel cut and the 218" wheelbase made turning bad. However we finally got a Class A unit which is 33.3' but is actually 34.5' long with a 208" wheelbase and a 55 degree wheel cut. Turning around is vastly easier. So, we have found that driving the Class A motorhome is so much easier, less stressful, easier to park combined with the more comfortable ride. We travel in two different modes with a toad and without. If we are touring and sightseeing without a destination or park we choose to go toadless to be more maneuverable this includes touring small towns. We have done this with a toad but due to the toad we have to be more careful because we can't back up. So, go for it and have fun!
