I read through this thread fast and didn't see any mention of depreciation. I know a lot of people don't like to consider it but it is an expense of Rving whether we go out for I day or full time. There are varying factors such as mileage to name one. I figure mine depreciates $6000 a year and that adds $1000 a month to my six month MH expense. I also consider my storage expense for the year and add that to my expenses. I'm not an accountant but I slept in a Holiday inn last night.

The higher level comfort you choose in your RV will have a direct effect on yearly depreciation lost.

My first RV was a new Coleman PUP I bought for $6400 out the door (tax, title, everything) Used it 6 years and about 325 nights and sold it for $4200. So it cost me $6.75 per night camping to own. Minus stuff like insurance, maintenance.

2nd RV was a new 2005 25' hybrid bought for $17,200, used for 7 seasons 380 nights and sold for $8500. This one runs at $23 per night camped.

Have a 3rd RV on order which will be the same brand hybrid and a hair larger for about $16,800 (again out the door). So upgrading from a 05' to a 12' tt will cost me $8300.

The PUP we ended driving 90 miles to the next state to save $1800. The one we just ordered we again ended up driving 120 miles to save over 4k from the final offer our local dealer wanted.... Just waiting for the delivery date.
