One day I was talking to my cousin and the subject got around to life insurance.
When I asked him if he had any, he said: "Nope! When I die, I want it to be a bad day for everybody!"

Many have had that problem.. Alas, one of the nasty things about our society is GREED.. The kids expect to get rich when their parents die..

In addition to the T-Shirt pictured above I've seen many rigs with a front license plate.. Same saying... Just buy one.

Now an interesting fact: If you are FULL TIMERS.. you are spending your children's inheritance at a much slower rate than if you owned a house. If you are full timers sit down and do the math, Taxes, Utilities, Home maintenance (lawn care etc) liability and such.. Compare what you spent in the house to what you spend for the same things in the RV... add in cost of fuel for the RV (I spend less a year than what I paid in property tax) and see the savings

Show your kids.

Get a membership in somehting like MASA (Medical Air Services out of Flordia) which, when I die, will deliver to Motor home (And me) to wherever I wish them to go (Pre selected addresses) among other features and you may change their mind.

The words are 'entitlement' and 'self absorbed'.

While neither the wife nor I ski we take several SKI (Spending Kid's Inheritance) trips per year. They can have whatever is left.

They might be thinking you are going to spend all your money and have to move in with them. Just kidding usually the fighting starts when you die maybe they are jealous you are enjoying your life without them.

You are overlooking the fact that most houses appreciate and all RVs depreciate. Otherwise, I agree with you.

Another factor in leaving anything for the kids is what the government will do over the next 10 to 20 years. They always seem to want their share and more.

Would love to leave the kids a fortune but don't have it. Funerals will be paid for and whatever is left is what they will get. They are ok with that.

Unfortunately unless you sell the house the appreciated value is only on paper. Same for the depreciation on the RV.

The appreciation or depreciation will only affect your estate.

I say enjoy the time you have left doing what you want. You've earned it.

About 2 years ago we came into a little money and all of a sudden Sally's grown daughter who is only a few years younger than I , decided to come and help us with straightening out things. They came with 2 suitcases and left with 6?? After cleaning out the 2 houses we ended up with. Also she brought her newest prize with her, who unabashedly told Sally they were there to help her settle her affairs, wills estates etc., and since his new squeeze(her daughter) was the oldest, she should get the bulk of anything she had!!! She told him if she heard another word about it, the only thing they would possibly get is a early return to the airport! They insisted on going thru the two houses and who knows what they stashed as I know when they came, it was no problem getting their bags and them in the car. But when they left , I had to rely on my past as a long distance mover to pack all their crap! Good Riddance, hope they found enough to keep them away, but I doubt it! Bobby

Good lesson. ?I wish more of today's society would learn this lesson. I always encouraged my parents to spend their money on themselves and enjoy the fruits of their labor. I think you should do the same. You raised your kids and paid for their youth. Should you leave them something? Probably. Should they assume they have a right to your money? Absolutely not! Happy motoring.
my kids are fairly young but this is more along the way of how I teach them. I do give them things but there's also a lot they earn. So far they're all hard workers and know the value of a dollar so it's paying off. My son has it figured out pretty nicely. He has a bank account that we started him at about 4 or 5. All of his bday, xmas, and allowance money goes into it and he really hates digging into that to buy something. If he wants something that's out of the ordinary I make him pay for it. He has to really really want something to dig into his own money for it. So much so that it's probably only happened 2 or 3 times.
