You'd be surprised how many RV's are purchased on an "easy payment plan" and sit in rented storage areas to rot, never really going everywhere. People do crazy stuff sometimes.

That's kinda why I like to go to state parks and big family style resorts - people out using their RV's no matter what kind they are or condition they are in. Making noise and having a good time - that's what it's all about!

There is internet evidence to support your statement. We are looking for a Cl A MH and I'm amazed at the number of pre-2005 diesel pusher MH's for sale with less than 50,000 miles.
However, the bottom line is; it's their money to spend as they choose.

But what boggles my mind from what I can tell by user profiles how many of these high dollar units are " 30 something's " and with kids yet!!! I don't know about other parents out there but my kids are well behaved, but still manage to break everything!!! (Half the reason for a 22 yr old Motorhome, they could burn it down i will only be out 10k lol )

I guess what I'm trying to figure out is how people are affording these? I am a Canuck but work or an American based company and it seems like once a week I get a doom and gloom email from our CEO about the state of the countries economy but yet it seems like there is no shortage of 85000+ units cruising around the country at $4 a gallon for fuel. Are the borrowing rules more relaxed down there? Is there more of a " scew it if I'm in debt. I'm gonna be in debt for the rest of my life" attitude ? I am honestly not asking the state of my fellow RV'rs finances, just what their attitude towards actually " owning" their coach. To the folks that are doing it and loving it, please keep it going because tourism is still a viable income to the American economy and yes I do think us campers are the biggest, friendliest and happiest community, if I haven't met you yet, I can't wait to meet you soon
The misses and I are mid to late 40 somethings and we finally got to the point where we can save to buy a big Class A DP. Everyone has their dreams and I hope everyone gets what they want. We're trying really hard to.
