Share yours first. Mine is very different. And like others I can read invest in a fund that is used exclusively for rving as within thgevfine print. There is no spend by stipulation, in fact they are complying with the rules as the money will be spent on RV, just not all at once. Also what good is an expensive rig if it only sits in storage, for some that fund would be the only way they could afford to continue to RV with the upcost and upsize of the rig. You could argue for some not investing in a perpetual fund is a breach of rules since without funds the rving would seize

Not thanksgiving here. Riddle me this, would 250k just being subtracted from be better for hitting the trail or adding a little and subtracting.

I'll share part of my plan. Adding more people to rving benefits the cause, more demand = less closed resources. It also spreads the bug to the next gen, enriches children's life education and creates bonds of friendship. I would get experienced campers to recruit 20 families with an interest in camping, ability to support trips but no budget for a unit yet, and a tow ready vehicle. 10,000 each budgeted for a hitch if none and a pop up or they can use the funds towards a better unit. Then 50 grants of $1000 each towards people with currently good but need a little TLC that has been delayed and is just out of reach, money towards and mechanical and functional upgrades only. Is engine repairs, towards a rescue fridge, solar, new batteries etc. Something that'll enhance camping. That would be 250,000 of my million.

You go first, all I can say my allocation and detail is well detailed, have 2 models chosen and some toys along with specific mods and updates since well its my actual plan with a few embellishments and a faster timeline, so the coatings and budget is based on real world pricing researched over the last 2 months,... My model railroad empire however took 9 months planning, 5 years with 4 people contributing without a known estimated date to completion, it also sucked in more money then the value of our es or flex...

I'd keep the 5th wheel we have, buy a 5 year old 3500HD or 4500HD, invest the $960,000 and do some serious traveling without having to worry about looking for the place that has fuel for a nickel cheaper. Probably look for places that the sun shines in the winter.....

In the mean time, perhaps you would be interested in a really nice bridge. It's in Brooklyn and in very fine condition. It cost $15.5M to build, but is available for a limited time for only $1M.

Thank you for the "Graceful Bow Out" as you have not one good idea to offer to this thread.........
Millionaire's are not of the "confused" gender....Thinkers by nature.
