Okay, here's a scenario.

I don't own anything, the bank does.
I probably won't ever be able to afford to retire.
It costs to have, maintain and use these things!

We enjoy having an RV and what it enables us to do whenever we have the time to do it.

When it comes to the point where I can no longer afford my lifestyle of living my life the way I want, I will change it.

I, and I alone have to justify the way I live, to myself and not to anyone else and I don't expect that you should have to justify yours to me.

The only thing I'd like you to justify is why you can't sit down at my campfire and have a beverage and tell me stories of your travels if invited! LOL

I would be overjoyed if my 1200 lb. 90 hp. bass boat got the same 8.5 mpg as my 27,000 lb. 330 hp. motorhome gets. And the boat tops out at about 40 mph. instead of cruising at 60.
