$1,000,000 to spend

If you had $1,000,000 dollars to spend on RV'ing what would you buy and how would you spend it? Class A, Fiv'er & truck, Gas unit or Diesel pusher, multiple units, Garage for your unit etc. All the money has to be spent on RV'ing, no investing
This is your chance to spend a Million dollars Where would you go or do first? Let's go.......

It makes a healthy down payment on a 2014 45 Foot Quad Slide Newell Motorcoach.

I'd make a nice down payment on a newer or brand new Prevost Marathon.

since it can't be a investment, with half I'd buy the highest quality HDT conversion i could.
With the other half would buy campground so I'd have a place to park it and write off the loss, since most campgrounds don't make money.

Up grade to a DP (used) and make sure it had new rubber and Batteries and then would be the toad set up. Change from dolly to towbar setup with whatever brake system is needed. i would then pay my Ins for 5 years up front and maybe a prepaid fuel card of sorts. Last thing would be a summer plot and a winter plot to give me and the DW places to park on any time we are in the area. I'm not sure there would be any money leftover or not! Sound Good?

The first $500,000 would go to my wife cause she'd see it as finally a way outta this wacky RV guys marriage. LOL

With only $500,000 left, I'd just put it in the bank and finally retire.

You are trying to "invest" (not wisely) and that is not allowed

Please re-read the original post as you are not playing by the rules....

A new 450 Ford truck. I would keep my Montana fifth wheel as I am very happy with it. The rest would go to travel expenses. I would stop staying in fraternal organizations parks and stay in conventional RV resorts with a hot tub, spa and heated pool. And a lot near San Diego CA with hookups.

We would buy 4 used MH's, one for each son ($400,000) Upgrade ours to a new/ larger MH. ($200,000). And a southern winter haven ($60,000). We would then just start following the good weather around our great country.

I play this game with myself all the time!!

A top quality, medium sized, used DP. Refresh the entire unit - tires, batteries, electronic systems, etc… Fill the roof with solar panels (and more batteries). Have the inside remodeled from living space for a dozen people to a home for one/two (desk/work area, for example). Load it up with spares and maintenance items. Buy prepaid fuel, insurance, and pay license/registration/taxes to cover the next decade.

I'd get a matching enclosed trailer - relatively big one. In that, I'd load a new Jeep, new dual purpose motorcycle, new full suspension, carbon mountain bike, new carbon road bike, and kayak.

Two plots of land; one near where I grew up in Montana, one as far south as possible.

Finally, I'd use the remaining money to pay someone to buy my airpark home (here, if interested).

Where: Anywhere where the people are not. Mostly the west - Alaska & Canada.
