Never used an uber but we used to rent a car before we started flat towing. Enterprise will pick you up and you can get a decent rate.


This ^^^^^^

We have used Uber as well and they worked quite well.

That said, after 1.5 years, we are getting ready to buy a toad.....I want my own car and not have to depend on someone else.

We have used Uber in big cities, but by and large we try to avoid big cities. Having your own vehicle gives you the flexibility to camp out of the cities, then travel to see what the local attraction is. Staying in cities at night is not high on my list of priorities. Its much safer and pleasant out in the country.

Uber for sure. Especially since we like to drink once we are set up and dont have to drive. If we are going somewhere that has alot of site seeing, i put my motorcycle on a hitch carrier. Alot easier than towing a car but of course riding a bike around has its disadvantages. Ive driven my class a to get supplies/go to destination during a stay before. Total pain in the butt to unhook and drive off then come back and redo everything. Ive only done that like twice.

My buddy used Uber the first year he had his MH. I to,d him I didn't think h would like it. Well after the first trip he asked me to set up his Focus to flat tow. He didn't like being tied to another form of transportation. Having to wait until they show up, not knowing who was driving you,etc. it's much much better with your own car. And if you get a rental, you still have the same issue of getting to he rental place.

The whole idea of traveling is being on your own, I wouldn't want to be tied to anyone else's schedule.

I tow a Smart car. Same size as a golf cart but will go 80 on the interstate and feels like a big car. You would be surprised a the places you can park it and 45 mpg. Last year they are coming to the US and are becoming to get.
