Given the fuel prices, we're considering asking a good friend and his wife to leave their RV home and just split the fuel, sharing our 41' coach for a 60 day trip through the West. They were going to follow us West but are afraid of their budget versus fuel prices. We have a fold down sofa and the queen bed in back and some very comfortable reclining chairs which I have slept in more than once. Anyone ever tried this ? Does it work...or is it a way to lose friends ? They would sleep on the fold down and most likely supplement that with some cabin stays. Thanks for any advice / tips .

We spent 1 week with friends in a 36" foot motorhome........don't do it, you'll regret it for sure!!! There is NO privacy and you're in each others ways all the time.

Only if they are very good friends...close enough to be family ....Be prepared to give each other there own space. Do not try to hangout together the entire time. good luck.
Maybe easier to pay there fuel bill

I probably wouldn't recommend it unless you're *very* close to these friends. We spent a month with my cousin in the MH (so 3 of us plus 3 pets). We managed fine, but we're all *very* close and very active (so, we spent each day all day outdoors). You will have ZERO privacy and be right ontop of each other the whole time you're together. I'd say unless you are particularly close with these friends it will not work out for you.

All RVs are built for the same number of people: 6 for drinks, 4 for dinner, and 2 for sleeping.

We did this for month in Alaska with Don's brother & wife. It worked because there was so much to see but was beginning to unravel by last week mostly because Don can be very undiplomatic. I'd think about it but only if you are VERY close, and get along REALLY well. 60 days is a l-o-o-o-ong time.


See ya' down the road!

Bad idea. The cost of fuel has not gone up so much as to cause me to do that.

I would not even consider it, but if they are VERY close friends maybe it will work.
Why not try a few overnight or several night trips with them before you decide? 60 days is a long time.
