Down to $200/night

Based on the purchase price of our coach and the number of nights spent in it, we are now at $200/night.

It's getting better all the time. If we can keep going 9 more years at this rate, we will be competitive with Motel 6

Yeah, doing the "real math" is an eye opener.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

That's about $8.33 an hour. You will soon be down to minimum wage rates.

Did you allow anything for knowing who slept in your bed last night and not having to worry about the bed bugs? Ought to be worth something.

If you spend the winter in Quartzite you could get down to $100 dollars a night. On second thought I can't imagine spending $100 a night to stay at Quartzite.

The best way to get the cost per night down is to spend more nights in the RV. If you can't get away more often, try sleeping in the RV when it's parked in the driveway.

Heck, I run a campground so I guess I could just stay here and use my imagination.

hi two

i laughed when i read this : for I have done a spreadheet and track "cost per night" - and yes, while an eye opener - it was meaningful to me to "know".

thanks for posting
regards, peter

I have vowed never to calculate the cost per night, and I have one of the less expensive DPs.
