[QUOTE=wincrasher;1482622]Some folks love simplicity and find their zen in it. Others have to have all the gadgets. Think they are happiest when they are miserable with problems!

I definately like the basic comforts. But do I need power everything? Nope. I am at the point where I need to spend less time on equipment and more time on adventures.

As far as debt goes, I have a longstanding policy - no debt for toys. Toys are bought out of the surplus from work as a reward.[/QUOTE]

Well said!!

Sleep much better now and will be even better when we hit the road. We don't have all the amenities in ours but we will have what we need. No debt was the first requirement. Unemcumnered money in the bank was second. Try it, you'll like it. Or maybe not. You can always run up more debt.
You are ON TARGET, sir.
When the magic day happens, you may always smile while you sleep. :-)

THe unnecessary options I have are there because I bought the coach used. Like the ice maker at we don't use, we don't use the one on the coach either, etc...

Agree with others, no debt for toys. I buy my toys with cash when the DW isn't looking.

Got quite a kick out of your "DUH" post about water!

Happy trails! Dave

It was an artful and humorous display of self depracation, sir.
Be it ever so humble there are times that "DUH" has it's place.

I don't think you are a mutant, I think your a happy man and love your lifestyle. We have most of that stuff in our MH and to be honest. We could & have lived with out most of it for many years. Oh yea we also have the bills to show for it. I have always said if you can live comfortable, not be a beurdon on society and want and can afford some amenities then go for it. You can't take it with you.

Well it appears we're voting on this now so I vote yes you are a mutant. But only because it takes one to know one. RV Mutants Unite!

One suggestion on an item from your list you might want to pick up: Rope lights. They aren't too expensive - don't take up too much room - and when properly placed beneath the coach and put on a timer, they 1) keep desert pack rats from crawling up inside the engine and gene compartments and 2) provide a nice Margaritaville ambiance on those beautiful high desert evenings. Beverage of choice and plastic flamingos sold separately.

Now that is cool! We ARE in the desert.
