Best guest room ever

Or the best race car One night out at the drag strip (use the motorhome to haul the car and hang out there) my freinds said I would not take the motorhome down the 1/8 mile during test and tune ..... but I did

Base camp for hunting and four wheeling trips. A get-a-way for when we just want some 'quite' time. As a guest house for visitors and emergency shealter when things go bad!

We joined Habitat for Humanity Care A Vanners. You commit two weeks to volunteer to help build a home. Typically they have 8 to 10 coaches. They will have you stay at a fairgrounds or local park for a discounted rate and both you and your spouse can help on the build. Best two weeks you will do.

We have stayed in the RV during power outages. As long as we have gasoline for the generator and propane for the stove we are not sitting in the dark, can stay warm, can cook, and be entertained.

Jimmy Buffett tailgating. We Tavel to concerts and use the Motorhome as our home away from home. Last year we turned a Buffett concert trip into a motorcycle trip around lake Michigan, two concerts and a great road trip.

Other uses

Lets see...

Concerts....park outside...eat and drink some..wait for the crowds to leave over 2 hours and while they all go crazy at each other we enjoy comfort..

Football Games and Racing..Place to chill out

This year I have been asked to provide my MH for a wedding group at a local park..so the bride and her ladies can get ready and walk right into the service...then I will drive them to the reception..plus I am invited anyway...

Loss of home power...go get it..park it in the driveway and everyone wants to come over..

In addition to some of the above, it is our portable motel room for life events (attend a wedding, attend son's bootcamp graduation, visit inlaws, a week at the beach, etc, etc). My working days included many motel stays - the motorhome is soooo much better (and healthier).

Poor man's tour bus for my band. (working on Prevost) Still trying to figure out creative sleep solutions for 6 grown men in a class A. Pull a 7x14 trailer. It is nice to save on hotel cost! Also a hot shower after soundcheck and a place to chill during day.

Wow let me count the ways 1. Take pups on all trips. Boarding gets exp. one trip last year one of the girls cost $1200 in vet bills. rather have them at hand to take care of them. 2. Relocating use her for 2.5 months while searching for a home. 3. wife used to catch a plane at 5am 80 miles away , go night before made little easier. 4. hurricane shelter
actually have not been able to take a fun trip yet, pretty much all business so far, but enjoyable doing business this way
