This is my view as well

Doesn’t it all boil down to what you want from your RV?
For us, the RV is just a place to sleep, leave our cat, and poop in comfort.
We spend very little time inside our RV, not because it’s not comfortable, but because we are traveling to see things other then the inside of our RV. No doubt, more luxury ini our RV would be nicer, but 99% of our RV experience is not about the RV. It’s about getting us to the other 99% in comfort.
To each his own.

I bought a (17yo/42k miles) 2000 class-C w/ fairly new roof/ tires and some water damage; now pushing 4yrs later, all repairs DIY, minor upgrades, Purchase $11k, 4-yr expense $7k, thieves just stole the CAT Converter last month and I installed straight pipe... STILL Happy w/ decision, but new/ old, they are a MONEY PIT? LUCK to ya.

Buy or not to buy

With a strong market, prices are on the high side. However if you plan on using it right away, the experience and memories will be of more value than the extra money you paid.

As far as maintenance. Annual costs are dependent or your skills and knowledge and abilities. Easy stuff like oil changes can range from $250 to $40. Same goes for other maintenance and repairs . You need to access your situation for yourself. Keep in mind rv maintenance is a learning opportunity.

my old man always said
"it's not the dollars that are that important, it is what is it WORTH TO YOU"
to me. it's worth a lot, I JUST bought my 2009 Melbourne 26A and don't even pick it up until the first week of Jan 22 but I have been waiting for things to get lined up and they have "if not now? When? If not ME? then who?"

We just downsized from a Class A to a Class C same length and I find it easier to drive a lot more fun. We shopped around found the one we wanted and just told the dealer what I was willing to pay. My price we based on pre-pandemic since it was sitting on his lot and found he was moving lot of them since this al started and saved a lot from what they wanted. Bottom line it’s what it’s worth to you.

If I wanted an RV for a week or 2 at this time there is no doubt I would rent. If I was looking at buying and keeping an RV long term, then what the market and prices do does not matter as RV's are seldom a wise investment.

Of course my opinion and worth what you are paying for it
I agree, I was going to buy this year, but with the prices so high, I just can't do it. So I am renting for this years trip and now my plan is to buy on my 60th birthday....7/23/26. I figure by then the prices should be much better.

OK, but the person you are addressing appears not to have been on this forum in just over a year.

Sometimes folks have it set to where the forum sends them an email notice if they get a private message though. Private messages are always the best place to give someone your email address, rather than out in a public forum for any spammer to see.

There is a classified section here. It's free.
