They say it's the best place to stay during Masters Week, and they say they meet the best people.

News 12's Kristen Cosby went to Ray's Creek RV Park to learn about the advantages of taking your home on the road.

Most Masters patrons stay in a hotel or rent a house...but some people come in their RV's, and they say this is the way to stay.

"Welcome to our home on wheels," says Bob Peterson of Arkansas.

Ask anyone in this community and they'll tell you this is the way to travel.

"The driver and passenger chairs rotate around," explains Kermit Cummings of Texas.

"It's got chicken salad," Peterson says.

"You get to sleep in your own bed and make coffee anytime you want to day or night," says Vita "Doodles" Woodward of North Carolina.

They say it's cheaper than flying, staying in a hotel and eating out.

But the gas does get expensive.

"We try not to think about that," Cummings says.

"If you wait until it gets reasonably empty you're pulling out a C note letting go," says Peterson.

But for these people--from Arkansas, Texas and North Carolina--the best thing about traveling in an RV is the friends they've met.

This group has parked next to each other for six years.

"Doodles" lost her husband Fred and counts on the group of RV-ers as her new Masters family.

"I absolutely knew that Fred expected me to come back to the Masters because he came for 50 years and it's a gift I can't let go of," she says.

A family that found each other through a game...and created a life.

"We see each other once a year, but we're still together," Woodward says.

This group plans to return next year, and there are extra next year you might want to consider a home on wheels.
