Probably more of a lifestyle than a passion or hobby. We spend considerable time in the MH but it is more of a tool that accomadates us in our travels and allows us to see what the USA and Canada has to offer. We are snow birds or winter Texans or werever the winter takes us, and we also will take summer excursions as well. We spent several years traveling on the waters of the US and Canada in a 50 ft Trawler and I would call that more of a passion the the MH. Yet it is hard to travel by water to AZ or Colorado, thus the MH.

Because I don't like to plan ahead. When I do something always comes up to spoil the plans.

I like to go on a whim or on spur of the moment, and I don't like being tied down by having to have prior reservations at hotels or airlines.

I love the flexibility of having my transportation and accomodations able to make changes easily.

For instance last year I went to St. Louis to visit my Brother In law when he retired from the AirForce. The other family members had to leave a couple days early to go back to Iowa so I just pulled in the awning stowed the jacks and headed to Iowa to get to spend some more time with family. If I had had airline reservations there is no way (economically) to do that.

An RV'r is someone driving a $300,000.00 Motorhome towing a $40,000.00 car and looking for a free place to park.

WE are in control. WE decide where to go, when to go, where to stop, how long to stop etc.

We bought our first Class C so we wouldn't have to leave the dogs at home in a boarding kennel while traveling.

Different century, different dogs, different motor home, but still motoring along with our furry companions, only now there is no S&B "home" to leave.

we went from a 38 ft scarab offshore power boat to our first motorhome 11 yrs ago when we discovered we could travel from punta gorda fl. to northern mi. using the same amount of fuel that we were using in one week running the scarab. i thought we won the lottery
