When I received my latest issue of Texas Parks & Wildlife there was an advertisement for time-share RVs. Yep! Carefree RV is offering "fractional" ownership of luxury Class A motorhomes. "You can see Texas the fun, affordable, luxurious way" with their "fractional" ownership program. At a "75% discount of the cost of whole ownership, & a 50% discount of a rental."
Let's see - 25% X $150,000 = $37,500. Kinda expensive for 2 weeks a year. Isn't that what most time shares offfer? Who gets it during the summer? Who in the Winter?
RVing has made it to the big time.

And do the people who rent know how to dump? We saw some "See the USA" campers in a park beside us 2 years ago, those people had no idea what a MH is all about. I'm sure they were given instructions, but they must have forgot.

I thought one of the perks of having an rv was the security of knowing my husband & I are the only critters in our bed. I no longer have to worry about staying in hotels with questionable bedspreads & germ-y tv remotes. This new business doesn't appeal to me in the least.

Plus, to me, the Discovery isn't exactly what I'd label as luxury & neither does Fleetwood. It's their mid-level diesel. They'd need to get into their American line before I'd even consider calling it "luxury motorcoaching". I think Carefree RV needs to reword their advertising a bit.

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

Depending on how may buy in, you could only end of with a week. It's like sharing a boat with someone you don't know. Your expectations could be way different than the others.I'm not saying it's bad, for me it would be for some, they love it.

I was at a dump station once and saw the couple in a rental ahead of me filling their gas tank with water; oohh my.

RV fractional ownership has been on ebay over a year ago....I think there were 7-8 owners who shared use...the coach was delivered to each for their use...there was some sort of 'maintenance fee' of about $300/mo added to cover insurance, cleaning, delivery, etc...the coach was to be used for 3 yrs then sold and any residual was divided among the joint owners...each owner had his own set of monogrammed sheets/towels..
I still want to go when I want to go and not look
at a calendar...

In a recent survey, it was revealed that the average RVer uses their rig 13 days a year. Any way you look at it, those are some expensive days.
