Besides camping, what uses have you found for your motorhome?

Aside from the standard "camping trip," have you found your motorhome useful for anything other applications?

Started our journey: 2015 Ford F350 Diesel Dually, 2016 Forest River Vengeance Touring 39R12 toy hauler, Can-Am Spyder RT-Limited.

Man cave. Some place to hide when "in laws" show up.

Along the lines of Milasman.

I didn't actually buy my m/h for a camper, per se. I frequent air shows and fly-ins and the DW got tired of standing around while I was chin wagging or looking at exhibits and she doesn't want to leave Deputy Dog at home, so we got a rolling lounge for her.

She's gotten to know a bunch of the other 'regulars' wives and so she drives there, I fly there, and we have a base camp where the gals can gather (make food) and socialize while the fellas do our thing.

BTW, it sure makes life easier Christmas shopping too, rest, unload, go back in, and lots of room for the gifts!

I found that if you gut it out it makes an excellent storage shed or if you cut the top off and fill it full of dirt it makes a flower or garden planter.
