I think I have become obsessed with RVing.

I have been into this only 4 months, but RV and camping obsession has a firm grip on my life, I can't stand not being in my RV, tell me am I a hopless case?

Probably hopeless! Some days it's really bad, then there are days that are worse.

Welcome to the club. Not long ago in a similar thread, someone even posted that they will take a beer with them and just go sit in their rig when it's parked at the side of their house! I'm not sure at what point it becomes an addiction but RVs should probably have a surgeon general's warning posted by the entry doors!

Ours is parked next to the stick house and virtually every day I go out to it and go inside.

The DW just keeps asking what I am doing. I just keep saying that I am just checking.

It IS an addiction you know.

My doctor, who is also an RV'er says that there is no know cure. Just ongoing treatments of driving around.

It's hard some days to get my wife to read the posts here online ...but she was able to read them and laugh. Come to think about it I wonder why she was laughing so hard.... Maybe I should lock up the rv and go in the house and ask

Ah O! I homebrew my own beer and don't mind just sitting it the MH next to the garage with one. We also have a bunch of boats. Betty Ford clinic here I come

I "resemble" that. In the early years of RVing and I had the Toyato which was small enouth that I could park it and plug in by the house, I'd take a beer out to the RV occationally just to get away from DW and the extended family for a few minutes.

We bought ours(RV) in Jan. of '10 and in April we went to view the first Grandson in NJ. Five months later with 12K miles under the chassis, 27 states and 17 National Parks, we were back home. This summer...5 months, almost 14K miles later, Alaska and all but 3 NPs in the lower 48 are a done deal...there's always next summer... I'd say RVing is a fairly common affliction. Bob

Yep, you've got all the symptoms of a "hopeless case", but cheer up, there are much worse things you could be!

What took so long WE love it. We use it for tailgating and have a great time, we stay overnight in the parking lot, then head out on Sun.
It's a great addiction, so relaxing and you always meet alot of nice people.

Very happy to know that I'm not the only one. Practically live in it and it's park in my driveway. But as you can see by this picture, I live in the woods
