This is a great topic. We are not even close to retirement. Purchased first Class A Sept 2015. First time purchase of anything with wheels and a bed. I grew up dry camping tents and pick up beds. My wife's idea of camping was the Hyatt. We discussed purchasing a lake house and looked at several since she wants a bed and bathroom. I suggested we purchase a motor home and we could go to any lake we wanted to? She finally agreed on the motor home and there is no looking back. Not to mention my daughter was pushing for the motor home as well. We travel every chance we get. At least 2 long weekends a month and have taken 2 extended trips since purchase 9 months ago. My wife and daughter love it! The whole experience has been wonderful for my family. I weigh the cost of ownership vs. the memories? The memories and times shared in our motor home wins every time.

Have a Class C; typically go to state parks as often as the wife and pocketbook allow.

This is our second year with a MH and second MH, First year acquired it in October, drove to FL in February and it rained inside as hard as outside. Left that one in FL. Spent 5 weeks in FL this past winter and several weekends "locally" (within 300 miles of home) since, three more trips planned before winter drives us south again. My Wife works a seasonal job at the Thousand Islands Winery and we can bail as soon as she is laid off. I work from home on phones and computer, the location is irrelevant!

2nd year with fifth wheel th and 8 and 5 year old boys. Spent 43 nights in it last year and already have 38 nights so far this year (just got back from a 4700 mile, 13 state three week trip). Try and go at least twice a month for normal trips within 150 miles of home. Believe we will move to a dp next year
