We are seasonal users six months gone six months in our "other" home. To me the first night out in the motor home is always the best. I just get that warm cozy feeling, all the better if it is raining on the fiberglass roof. Nice and cozy in that bed the furnace spewing warm air. Off to warmer climates, nothing like it in the world for me.

My next favorite time is getting back home six months later to 3000 sq ft and water pressure and my own back yard and garage woodshop.

Its hard to name just one thing. We like four slides, tag axle, side radiator, and aqua hot to name a few, but most of all the size.

There are lots of things we like about our MH but, if we had to chose just one it would be the extra room both inside and out. With the slides out and the storage underneath.

All of the above plus when we arrive at our destination we are not driving around in a large pick up truck. We are however driving around in our MX5 with the roof down enjoying life.

If I had to pick just one thing, it would simply have to be driving it.
I love driving my Living room down the road with a full one piece windshield, full view of my adventure. Having a DP puts all the noise of the engine at the rear so it's a quiet ride.

Wouldn't it be cheaper to install a air horn in your Miata?
When you ask questions like why? and you analyze the reasons for spending the large amounts of money that we do on these things, I begin to wonder where my brain was when I bought this thing. The one thing that I like most could most likely be accomplished in a trailer, a 5th wheel, or even a tent. Although my need for comfort while I am out enjoying the good ole USA has gone beyond sleeping on the ground in a tent. Truth is the comfort level it allows me over the other methods is exactly why I have one. Throw the cost out the windshield!

When we started looking it was at toy haulers then tt's then class c's. We then sat down and really looked at what we were going to use it for. At first it was just to vacation in but then it was Thom's job. Which at the time was traveling around the country 90%-95% of the time for different job sites. So we just decided on a class a since that fit the bill for the needs. Then a job change or 2 and we no longer need to travel that much but we did our long 7k mile trip and realized that we can survive together in here without problems. Got rid of the house and now storage unit and all we have left is what is with us and we are still fine almost 2 yrs later.

Love the view. Love being able to go to the bathroom when and where we want. Love being able to get snacks or food while Thom is driving. Love being able to stop where we want and not have to worry about even setting up for just a nights stop but still being able to get to what we need to without even getting out of the coach once.

It's everything.

Everything is there. The view, the food, the drink, the bathroom and no setting up in the rain. If I pull over for foul weather, I'm never out in it.

It's having your cake and eating it too.

I mostly like the fact that when we pull out the drive way, I feel that the vacation has started. Before with the 5er, it was every one piling into the truck (which I drove everyday) with pillow/blankets/snacks/toys & books to keep the kid & grand kid occupied, and don't forget the dogs and their leashes. Then there's also the stopping for restroom breaks and eats every short while. The vacation didn't start till after getting set up at the RV park.

Down side is, the 5er was less expensive overall (Insurance, tags, fuel cost).
