Here's a vacation idea with a difference: book your fully self-contained motor home and drive off to wherever it is that you please (except Mexico!). Each roomy automobile comes equipped with the basic amenities that a family needs. Basic cooking gadgets and bedding is available, in accordance with the number of travelers, though you need to bring your own food. Bathroom facilities include paper for lavatory use, hoses and the like. Once on a campground, you can also service your holding tanks with the handy waste-disposal system; no extra charge if you return your motor home with a full tank! A TV will keep the kids entertained while on the road, and the power generators that come along ensure against any sudden blackouts. Some of these vehicles also have a towing facility, so your car can be towed along as well. Pets are not allowed, smoking is strictly prohibited within the home, and the driver must be over 25 years of age. It is advisable to get additional insurance coverage before you begin your trip. Excellent customer service and immaculately clean units are the hallmark of this rental facility.

A glimpse at the facade of this church as one passes along the Abrams Road would probably give one the impression of an office building rather than a place of worship.
