Sorry, but I can't even afford to give it away.
I guess you'll have to buy you own.

THAT'S MY POINT!
I've had my coach for 12 years.........THERE'S NOTHING LEFT TO GIVE TO MY CHILDREN........
except a 17 year old coach with 130k miles on it that will need some work as soon as anyone uses it......(even if nothing breaks while you are traveling, by the time you return from a camping trip something always needs fixing).

Try this one on for size, was coming out of Palo Duro Canyon last summer (105 plus degrees) and my RV quit, had to have it towed, my buddies and I had to wait in the heat holding up P.Oed autos. Tow company said sure we can tow an RV, 350.00 hook up fee, and a ridiculous amount per mile.......what could I do? So...........had it towed to a shop in Amarillo Tx. where it started and ran fine, they charged me for testing everything and placing the drive shaft back on it and away I went, off to NM. Co. and Ut. 1000.00 poorer and nothing and I mean nothing to show for it! Yeah, good times!

Don't feel so bad - just dropped about $5K on a new radiator, 6 tires and a transmission seal.

I agree with the other Mike, had a 48" sailboat in Annapolis, MD. The maintenance never stops.

Left one comparison out

Sorry guys, but you left one item out of the comparison - A race car! Just imagine a $600 tire bill - per weekend!, add in annual rebuilds, and general prep, plus entry fees and you're really spending some money. By the way, that's just for club (amateur) racing. You also have to have the big truck and trailer to haul with, and have to take care of them too!

That said, It was the most fun you can have with clothes on!

I have a small Travel Trailer not a motor home and I must say it's really not all that expensive. And, I use the truck I pull it with as my daily driver. Now my 1973 Silverline boat on other hand is definitely a money pit. My dogs are kinda money pits. I have a friend sleeping on my couch that is my worst money pit. But, thankfully I never got married and had any kids because there the worst.
