If it works for you, then go for it.

We did it for a time. I would drive the Motorhome and she would follow behind. I used cruise control, she did not. She liked to stop more often and I did not. So it was a pain trying to follow her. Once the kids were old enough to sit in the front seat, my wife wasn't in the cab anyway. I usually took one kid and she took another.

A couple of thoughts though:

IF....the car goes first, it can lead the RV into places that it should NOT be going if you are not real attentive.

Some method of communication would be nice.
GMRS handhelds can be had at a reasonable price.
Also handheld CBs.

We prefer to tow for a lot of reasons but sometimes if we are moving a short distance, we will not bother to hook up.

What works for you should be inconsequential to what anyone else thinks.

We tow a car, travelling together in the comfort of all that a rolling apartment offers was the whole reason we bought motorhome. But to each his own.

I wish my X had taken the car and gone off on her own. It would have saved the kids and I a lot of grief.

We've been doing it for 9 years except for our trips to Alaska. We are full time and volunteer for 3-5 months at a time. Going to look for a new vehicle as our present 2005 Focus has 200,000 miles and not ready to spend a lot of $ on it.
