Our motor home depreciates 5% a year and our rented home appreciates 10% a year plus the rental income.... so I guess we are keeping up with inflation!

According to Nadaguides, our value bottomed out two years ago. Now the value is up 25% from then.

It's not an "investment", as in, appreciation. Depreciation is the name of the game, and with RVs, it's depreciation on steroids, unless it's a "classic", or something that's become a collectors item.

There is likely a point in time when a motor home maintained in good condition ceases to lose value.

Real world depreciation on a motorhome

Don't count on your rental home doubling in value every 7.2 years (at 10% per year it would). 10% per year is not sustainable in the long run in the housing market.

Remember the last crash?

Cheers!

Just where did I say it was an investment?

Year 4 - 6%
Year 5 - 5%
Year 6 - 5%
Year 7 - 4%
Year 8 - 4%
Year 9 - 3%
Year 10 - 3%

How does this line up with your experience?
This is almost exactly the same numbers I used, created an excel spreadsheet to calculate values, but these numbers are spot on +/-. The only variable I have seen, is that the lower end units don't quite depreciate as much or as rapidly as they are easier to sell due to the price points and demand.
