We live on the cheap side of Charlotte ...Our DP is our mountain house, our lake house, and our beach house. Alot of people in Charlotte live in areas that the home prices and mortgages keep broke. Barely able to "Keep up with the Jones" We have payments on both of ours and combined we pay alot less than a $250,000 mortgage at 5%...It is all about choices, fancy house, or OK house and fancy MH...It's a no brainer to me...Peace...D

My interest was visiting different parts of the country for a month or two each. To really see what an area is like. I am not going to stay in a hotel that long and finding a house with furniture for short term is difficult. An RV is all that is left. Cost comparison is not the issue.

Awesome answer, I going to get a bumper sticker made with that answer,

But I did use some what the same answer on our last trip , asked me how much it cost to get from Va to Florida, I said I didn't know we just fill it up when it needs it.

Thanks for the laugh

It was a gift to our dog!

We have stayed at dog friendly motels & hotels where our dog refused to walk on the floor they were so dirty.
