If you want to own an RV go into it with your eyes wide open.
We need a thumbs up emoticon.
I know I will fix something everytime I come back from an RV outing (10 times this year for 35 days). I know I will fix the thing I forgot to fix right before I leave on the next RV excursion. I know I will fix the thing that broke while traveling when I get there (Dang sliding door!). And then I know I will eventually have to fight with the dealer for something major for which I can't parts.
But all of that will afford me the ability to vacation with my wife and dog where my son is stationed as a Coastie without intruding on them and without the hotel hassles. I will get to relax by a fire on a fall night or hide in airconditioned comfort on a hot night. No bugs crawling in a tent, no hard ground for my old body.
So its a price I'm willing to pay, but I'm real glad that I went into it with my eyes wide open.
