I have enjoyed reading this thread and I have chuckled and pondered at many of the responses.
Hubby and I have a moderate and a little old RV that we love. We worked our way up from a pop-up to the Revolution by saving and upgrading when we could. We have traveled a bit and enjoyed every mile. Now Hubby is failing a little bit more and we are discussing our future.
We have finally decided that we will try to sell the stick and brick in the next six months and sell our investment properties. We have worked like dogs for 30 plus years to pull our rental property portfolio together for our retirement. We thought that we should keep doing everything for the kids and their inheritance but you know what...??? They will be just fine after we are gone and we should have a little happiness and luxury while we still can.
I love our Revolution, but Hubby wants to spoil me. He has asked me for a wish list of what I want for a newer RV. I am not sure what I want except a few more years with him. I love to browse the RV Shows and drool over some of the newer RVs but I am happy for now with what I have.
Bottom line.....We have always been happy with what we have had. We have been fortunate to move up to better Rv's when our finances allowed it, but we have worked darn hard for it!! When I was in college I was envious of the room-mate who had better clothes but it never made me less grateful for the clothes that I had. That is the way I feel about our RV now and the RVs in the past.
I am so grateful to have had the ride that we have had in this life. Maybe we will have an even better ride within the year and maybe we will be able to live in a newer and bigger RV in a very warm place, but if we cannot....I am grateful for what we have had in the friendship of everyone that we have encountered whether they were next to us in a pup-tent or a million dollar RV. We have met some wonderful people over the years and we would not have had that blessing if we had been stuck in our house.
BUT>>>>a Prevost with a driver would not be bad either....LOL!!!!!
Be grateful and happy with what you have!!!!! We Are!!!
Faith, Bob, and the Pups...
