There wasn't enough room to place it on my signature line without extending one of the lines, but on other sites, I have a saying:

"It doesn't matter what you camp in, you are having just as much fun."

So it doesn't matter if you are in a Tent, Prevost, or anything in between, you are having fun.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

We bought our first 32' Class A RV (1889) for under $5000 on Ebay. Cash purchase. Drove down to pick it up and the seller said, "if you don't like what you see, we will stop the deal and I will refund the deposit". We paid in full and drove it home 300 miles. It was a LONG drive, but we made it. Guess we were just lucky.

It had it's issues, but nothing we couldn't fix ourselves. We are living in it right now (1 1/2 years) and just bought our "upgrade". It has issues, too, but we "stole" it knowing what we were getting. We financed this one for 3 years. We will be free and clear of ALL our debts by then. Then it's semi-retire and hit the road!

You know...a lot of our friends have big fancy homes, or a vacation cabin somewhere. Some of them have lots of jewelry and shiny new cars. We decided that after years of working our way up the RV ladder, we wanted to splurge a little this year and we bought a pre-enjoyed 2005 Revolution. Is it the biggest and best coach out there...Nope...but it is just what we wanted and we are very happy with it. We spent a little more than we had planned but you can't take it with you and we wanted to spend every minute enjoying life....

So enjoy what you can afford and don't worry what anyone else thinks. You have much more than others and they are envious of your coach...

I got mine for $1100 cash. It's 33 years old, got a few problems right now, but I LOVE it. I am so proud of it and it's perfect for my family.
