If money was no object...

I really like my little motor home. It's small enough for me to easily drive, and has everything within reason that we need. I do wonder what I might trade up to if the sky was the limit as far as price goes. I firmly believe bigger isn't better, and often just means more hassles.

So, say you won $100 million lottery jackpot. What would you trade up to? RV wise, and or related, that is.

Probably the shortest DP I could find. Would be a lot of work to Mikidize it like my current one. Sure, I could pay to have it done, but probably wouldn't be the way I wanted.

The DW and I have discussed that. Right now we could afford a Newmar Essex and maybe a King Aire. But we don't need all the extra's and glitz you get. We like our Dutch Star just fine. So maybe a new one, and quit working so time to travel. Not sure what we'd do with the 13 yr old grandson that came to us when my wife's daughter died!

I'd order a loaded Newmar 4347 with an entertainment center replacing the curbside sofa. It would be pushed by a new Jeep Rubicon. Then retire from the military when it's ready to be picked up!

I can see it now, a travel trailer being pulled by a Moho, but talk about adding hassles to your life -- an employee??? Maybe just have one on 24/7 standby that lives near a major airport and you can have him/her fly to where you are, drive you to your next destination, then fly home.

Now if that person was also excellent at RV maintenance and repair, maybe...

I would get the Newell, and tow a the smallest class A or class C I could find, the best of both worlds. Maybe a RV that goes off road.

I may be the minority here, I am happy with what I have, and would bank the cash in case I need it at a later date.

I agree with usual suspect. Especially since FW decided to quit making the best MH they ever built.

Me? I'd buy several pieces of land and put a honking HUGE Yurt on on each one.

Pacific Yurts

Only fuel cost then would be going to and from.

It would be a bigger truck, a toyhauler, some toys to put in it, and then a nice MH for my parents to come along.
