Hey, wait a minute, how are you going to pay for the social programs, government, private banking, et al, if you own your own rigs and more. Why that is just not the American way, we need your support, buy on credit. more more.

Oh, by the way, I own.

I've always been a fan if paying with cash, but there seems to be some hypocrocy from some I've heard who say if I can't pay cash, than I don't need it. Did you pay cash for your house ? Did you rent until u could save up to pay cash ?

Are you kidding, I owed to the hills and everyone around them, I'm old now, not out of dept, just own my own Motorhome. Heck, the kids have to pay off the rest when I'm gone Just to make sure they find them, I have their SS#'s tatooed to my arm (all three) in bar code.

You do realize that for some of us this isn't a toy, this is our home, our only home.

To the OP - why do you care what other people do?

Same here. That's why I bought used instead of new. I own every bolt and every piece of fiberglass of my unit!

I have the title for my coach,,, but the Credit Union owns a piece of my house!
I "was retired" early, and I am still employed, so my pension check is paying off the coach! Could have never paid for it cash!

I retired a few years ago at 53. Before quitting, I wanted everything paid off, so we have the house, cars and motorhome all covered. It was a matter of making a good paycheck, living below our means and putting the rest away. Those maintenance and upgrade bills don't look quite so bad when they're the only expenses.

The older I get, the more I appreciate simplicity, sooo....We sold our houses and bought our manufactured home(it had just been totally upgraded) in a really nice, small neighborhood with the intention of 'boarding up' an taking off for extended periods. Sold my Crown Vic and Harley and then we bought our coach and toad on e-bay. It is all paid for and in great shape. Now if the health continues for the both of us ...we have a lot to be thankful for.

Same here and couldn't be happier. I hate making payments on something but sometimes there is no alternative.
