What is your idea of roughing it??

"What do Rver look like?"
I woke this morning and next door was a new 50 foot Powerhouse Ultra. $300,000, 50 foot without the matching trailer and towiung a '65 Chevy Rancharo well restored.
At 7am they are out with towels wiping down everything.
Everyone that comes by wipe the tears from thier eyes, as am I.
They look like they should be on the French Rivera, sipping Pina Coladas.

Roughing it = running low on rum!

No Pepsi in the fridge, nachos in the mircowave....and no chocolate cake on the counter for desset. And especially no bacon and eggs for the morning!

No TV kinda sucks too, but luckily that's never an issue. With that said, I might only watch a show for 30mins before bed. I'm not glued to the TV. I listen to the radio mostly.

Roughing it is using single-ply RV toilet paper instead of my usual Kirkland brand.

Here's a couple of pics showing just how rough things can get for a trucking husband and wife team I met in Utah. I felt so bad for them.

@Murf2u -I know, huh??!! Crazy. It was explained to me they are "retired" and use this as their MH while they pay for a good portion of their travel with the loads they haul.

My DW thinks roughing it is staying in a hotel without room service....

I think roughing it is being stuck in the 5th for 2 weeks watching it rain... with the DW....

Our idea of roughing it is when we stay someplace that has no cable, and we crank up the antenna and can only get 9 stations, most of them pbs.

Roughing it? tenting, sleeping on the ground (over 50 crowd probably gets it...)and no camp stove...trying to cook everything over an open fire. Actually, that's an adventure for me, but the hard ground has shoo'd me off into a camper.
