Hi my name is Stuart and I have a problem. I like to buy gadget for the motorhome and I am always looking at newer/different motor homes for sale. My wife thinks I have a problem :(

Yes, you have a serious problem that can only be remedied by buying a new RV and stuff to go with it.

Stuart - it may depend upon the types of gadgets you are buying. If it has an electrical cord and belongs in the kitchen! . . . .

However if it is all sparkly and comes with a gold fitting!. . . . that may be a horse of a different color.

I always tell the DW that if we get a larger MH she will have room for more stuff. LOL

Sounds like a bad case of STAS. Shiny Toy Acquisition Syndrome.

I have much the same "problem" although after 50+ years of RV'ing I pretty much have what I need in the line of accessories. As to a new/newer MH, well I'm always looking!!

Hi Stuart! You are as normal as the rest of us. It's your wife that has the problem. You have her best welfare in mind as you search for gadgets, upgrades, new RV's to make her life easier. Some women, most it seems, just don't appreciate all we go through just to make their lives easier and more enjoyable...

Yeah, yeah, we all have the same issue Sir. If you're like most of us and love to look, but can't afford the steam off a cold lunch right now. I love to look for two reasons. One to keep up on the value of my own coach and watch for the cost to come down on the one i would trade my off for in a heart beat. So Sir, the best advise i can give you is to look all you want, it'll take both of you to step up for the next purchase.
