We got out first RV in 2011, we use it 5-6 times a year. It works well for what our needs are currently. Better yet is it is paid off. So until it gets to the point where the maint cost out way the fun we will keep this on. It works well and is fun for what we use it for!!!

RV poor!!! Got first RV in 1986. We're now on number 9. Our front tag says " this RV is a gift from our kids. It was bought with the money they won't inherit ". And boy is that true! Very happy with our new one.

it's a shame people worry so much about what they appear to be instead of just being who they are. too many people think money makes them a better person...

My philosophy was to get one that I could

A. afford
B. learn some of the finer points of RV's
C. make some basic repairs on to get the sense of how some of the systems work

So I bought an older, gasser and I can say I have learned a whole lot.

1. That I really like RV'ing
2. That I enjoy the systems and more importantly the tinkering and maintenance
3. That I want to move up to something a tad bigger with diesel and the ability to haul a toad.

I won't do it for awhile yet as my DW and I still don't have as much time as we would like to enjoy the one we have but when the time comes, we will be upgrading.
