Who cares what other people think of your rig? Are you happy with it? That is what is important. To me, my rig is the most expensive out there because the joy it brings to me and my family is Priceless!

Well while our rig doesn't come anywhere close to the price you listed we often camp in spots where we're the very biggest rig and often the only class A. We do get alot of looks, but it's really just simple curiosity. I talk to everyone so it doesn't bother me at all. Mostly folks are just curious about the rig, curious about us (we're pretty young for fulltiming) and curious about where we've been. And if I see a fancy or interesting rig at a campground I'm curious too! I've never been asked for a tour (or asked for one myself), but I've given several esp. when we meet folks who are looking to buy a class A or interested to see what one looks like inside.

So I guess if you go for a really nice rig, you may well get looks, but what you read into those looks (and how you deal with them) is up to you.

I like to give tours of my home on wheels to friends. It's not much, but I proud of it. The guys don't give a damn, but the women act like they're impressed. Makes me feel good.

I will admit to feeling a little strange when I happen to be the largest in the neighbourhood. It has happened a couple of times and although I enjoy the comforts of my home on wheels, I always try to be mindful of how fortunate I am to have the options even though by some standards, I am still roughing it. On the other side of the coin, when I am up to my neck in my next repair, I will admit to looking somewhat wistfully on that pop up TT where the folks are having a leisurely sit out while I have just spent 3 hours working on something.

I don't have a $ 400,000 rig, See folks with them, no envy. We enjoy getting away in the
great outdoors. Sometimes ,when sitting in the A/C watching a movie, I miss sitting on the beach watching the sky darken, listening to the insects, frogs and those mysterious twigs snapping outside the tent in the middle of the night.Then I wake up to go pee & remember feeling for the zipper on the sleeping bag, then the zipper on the tent, then trying to remember which way the can is , and I realize I never would have made it. Enjoy it anyway you choose, Art.

I didn't do anything to deserve my rig, I swindled people out of their hard earned money (same as most other rich folks as far as I can tell) and now I spend it how I like.

Having said that, since I travel with my dogs, and most people think they are pit bulls, I often get dirty looks for the dogs. I tend to stay in places that welcome all comers, and I like the mix, so we don't feel hard done by that we don't stay in the RV Resorts for the snooty rich.

I'm sure our first trip out with the group in our new to us motorhome (in August) people will ask for a tour, but I've grown up with them. Its kinda like a house warming. Not a jealous thing at all. I like to look at other set ups to see what people have so that I can rob them... j/k. But I do like to get ideas for cool storage options or seating / sleeping, that I could incorporate into my motorhome and ones that I would never want in my motorhome.

I own a 2009 American Eagle that I am proud of and I would hope no one would look at me any differently for what I drive. I started in 1994 with a pop up with a window unit installed through the rear wall (not by me), purchased a second pop up with a roof air, then a 30' Travel Trailer, then a 1999 American Eagle before just last month purchasing the 2009. I had a lot of looks with the first pop up but not of envy I am sure. I would hope if you want a nice motorhome than you should purchase it and not worry about what people think, as if they are that type of person they will find something to give a strange look about. I am at least 10 years from retirement and look forward to enjoying my unit until at least that time.

Even though it's a humble Motorhome, I did find myself looking down on people the other day.................
