Thank you for the idea! I laughed out loud. I have used my motorhome for work when I had to be out of town on a job (commerical contractor) for an extended period of time. Better than a roach motel!

After getting my rv,once the initial excitement subsided, I felt an immediate sense of well being.I had my own space after 18 years sharing space with the wife and 2 young boys.Seperation on wheels.Knowing I can go anywhere,anytime.That kind of energy is the perfect inspiration to be creative,artistically or by writing.Momentarily Iam being held up from heading cross country by several issues,yet I feel already blessed having an rv, and mostly its been parked in a very quiet neighborhood.A great way for healing.

OK, I never thought of that! You've got to tell us what your time slip said.

Funny how lots of folks think alike. The final "straw" so-to-speak in my getting my 1st one is because #1 (daughter) is getting married at a vineyard and she needed a "get ready" spot.

I saw one other that said office.
Well, ours was more than that for a few years. I do (did) specialty work on racing boats. As bring a 5 ton, 30odd ft long with 40+ foot mast to my shop was just not practical, I would load tools and test equipment into the coach and go where the client needed me.
So, as I often described it, my coach was my:
Meeting room,
Precision instrument shop,
Electronic repair shop,
Tool crib,
Electric plant,
Restaurant, and on more than a few occasions
a Motel.

A lifelong waterman and his bride going dry places for as long as the fuel money lasts.

I bought my MH seven years ago specifically to go to Alaska.
I now use it for family reunion trips, Volunteer Camp Ground Hosting with the NPS and for coastal fishing trips.
