Linda Hanney, in her Linda’s Backroad Musings at LJWorld.com, discusses an Over-The-Road Survey Limon CO to Topeka KS.
On August 28, 2010, we were returning from a vacation trip to Colorado. It seemed we were seeing a lot of Rvs so we decided to count, starting at Limon, Colorado and ending at Topeka, Kansas. During that time, we counted a total of 182 recreational vehicles. This included those we met traveling west and passed on the road plus any we could see from the road, such as rest stops. We pretty much drove straight through and were careful not to count one twice when we stopped.
Not surprising, Class A Motorhomes and Fifth Wheels were most prevalent with pull campers not far behind. The date should be noted. In the Midwest, schools were underway. My guess is young families would more likely have the pop-up pull and retirees might have the bigger rigs. Also, I 70 might have more big rigs than backroads.
