Going full time in January. Just bought a resale TT Elite and a Coast to Coast Deluxe. Should be able to cover USA for less than $5/nite average.

Sounds good, but somehow you need to roll in your investment cost into the ave night stay cost to get a true picture.

So how would you propose to do that when you have no idea how many years you will be full time? Do you change the amortized cost each year to reflect one more year on the road? No real different than the sunk cost of the RV itself. So, I will only account for the dues, any nightly fees, etc.

A truer statement would be that "My $10k? investment now will reduce my ave nightly camping cost to $5/night.
We started full timing at age 55 and set our cost/expenses plan for a 15 year run.

See your point. Thank goodness my investment for the 2 was less than 1/2 that! Hope we meet up down the road!
