    One way car rentals

    That's not a bad idea but I suspect the OP wants to use the car in Florida as well (although I guess they could probably get a rental car there).

    One way car rentals

    I can't imagine this would be cheap and I can't imagine the rental location you are getting the car from being happy to let you use one of their cars (in my experience, just doing a one way rental to a location 30 minutes away is difficult because the original location says it's hard to get the...

    Has anyone bought a place in Orlando and wants to share their experience?

    I certainly can't disagree that it's more affordable than Toronto but that doesn't mean it's a good investment. You can probably say that 99% of cities in the world are more affordable than Toronto. Other than Vancouver, every city in Canada is more affordable than Toronto and it's certainly a...

    Has anyone bought a place in Orlando and wants to share their experience?

    I've been considering it for a while and I'm still considering it but getting more hesitant. You can certainly get good occupancy but I have to wonder at the price; there's just so much competition for short term rentals. I also wonder about resale as there are so many new communities being...

    9 days out and disaster has struck! Mobility advice appreciated

    FWIW, I went to Disney shortly after hip replacement. I thought about getting a mobility scooter but just decided to use a wheelchair and it was fine and easier to transport (although I had gotten a hitch platform to carry a mobility scooter around). I believe I was well enough that I could...

    Motorhome purchase worth it?- Rent out when not in use?

    Sorry, I wasn't clear on that; my comment on the generator was specifically for fifth wheels (FW)

    Motorhome purchase worth it?- Rent out when not in use?

    As mentioned, RVs are about compromising; the biggest ones might be 500 sq ft. You either get sitting / living area or you can maximize sleeping area but it's hard to get both unless you get very large. If you are planning on having a lot of people sleeping, some questions to think about are...

    Motorhome purchase worth it?- Rent out when not in use?

    FWIW, we're a family of 4 and have a class A motor home. As others have said, you'll be hard pressed to find a trailer or motor home that sleeps 7 comfortably. The most class As *might* sleep 4 comfortably, you can get find Class Cs that sleep 6 relatively comfortably and you can get trailers...

    Tent camping August 3 for 4-8 nights. Too miserable?

    I have to agree with those saying that it would be brutal without any AC. At that time of year, it will probably still be in the 90s at 11pm-midnight so sleeping will be very difficult.

    Last minute roadtrip?

    I sympathize with you. It certainly won't happen overnight but you should work on him to make him understand that air travel is safer than car travel (and statistically, it's not even close, air travel is much safer). Driving from Ontario to Florida on Interstates, you will likely encounter at...

    Traveling with camper/stay at a hotel?

    We (in Class A motor home) usually only need to stay at Walmart's during the Fall and Spring (we don't usually do long travels during the rest of the year) and at that time of year don't typically need to run the generator between 11pm-7am. But I wouldn't really hesitate to do it at rest areas...

    Last minute roadtrip?

    Echoing the quoted reply, with only 8 days, I would suggest exploring the cost of flying. The most obvious reason is that you are spending 1/2 your time off on the road. I don't mind driving but getting to Florida in 2 days basically means you are on the Interstate or stopped for sleeping /...

    “Camping” at Walmart the night before?

    I think you'll have different opinions. We used to stop at campgrounds every night until we found out that we can stay at Walmarts (and other locations) overnight and for us, stopping at Walmart is usually a much better option. (I just posted this in another thread but figures it's appropriate...

    Traveling with camper/stay at a hotel?

    It depends a lot on your setup but for us, it's way easier / faster / cheaper to drive until I'm tired and then find a nearby Walmart (or similar) that allows overnight stays, stop for the night and get back on the road fast in the morning. There are actually several benefits : 1) You don't...

    Sale on Legoland Florida Annual Passes - this weekend only

    Not sure if there's a better forum to put this (Mods, maybe there should be an "Other" in the Universal sub-forum - if it should be elsewhere, feel free to move it). Anyway, for anyone interested in Legoland Florida: If you are planning a trip to Legoland Florida, this might be a decent deal...

    Workamping at Disney World

    I've never looked into it so don't hesitate to correct me if I'm wrong but, although workamping is very common at many private campgrounds, I've never heard of it at Fort Wilderness and actually would be surprised if it's possible there. I believe they are quite strict about the maximum stays...

    New airline out of Ogdensburg, NY!

    FYI, in case anyone is curious. SkyWest will start flying from Ogdensburg on starting May 3. Just to sample (May 16-May 20) (prices in CAD$) (note that these do not include Allegiant Air prices as I was looking at days / airports Allegiant doesn't fly to. My intention was to compare to Ottawa...

    “Camping” at Walmart the night before?

    That's a pretty funny coincidence that there were matching names nearby! That looks like it could be a very good place to stop for a cheap night before going to FW.

    “Camping” at Walmart the night before?

    I don't see a "Lake Marion Park" off the I4 - I do see a "Lake Marion" near Haines City (which isn't too far) but I don't see a Park there on Google Maps and I see a "Lake Marian Paradise RV Park" near the FL Turnpike (which is off the I4) but that's quite a ways from the I4 (especially since...
