Of all of my past hobbies such as the Corvette, Harley, Lance Camper, and so forth, my motor home is the best...nothing like getting on the road and exploring new (to us) places. Taking the living room camping and having a "toad" is like they say "You ain't lackin' if your Cadillacin" RVing is Cadillacin at its finest...IMO.
totally agree,couldnt of said it better. If cost is the main issue don't buy one. Been motor homing for 42 years and have had 7 of them. Costly but the places we have been and seen and experiences? how do you put a price on that?

Running costs

Sure glad I bought new gasser. So far after 3 years of ownership 1-2 lof per year. That's less than $100 per year and with the Canadian dollar so low my coach will fetch as much as I paid for it 3 years ago.
Best timing and luck I've ever had.

As someone posted earlier. It is a "bottomless pit". If you worry about "maintenance". Don't buy one.

Thanks, Bob
Perhaps the best answer is: " A Motor Home is the most expensive way to travel and camp".

They can be money pits, but the travel, friends that you meet and wonderful sights seen make up for it.
