I get what he is saying. He has been saying this for a least two years.

I bought a RV anyway. I did not buy mine as an investment, I just hate sleeping on the ground.

If this makes any one want to sell their RV post it on the classified forum. I am looking to upgrade.

If I wasn't mechanically inclined, I would not own an RV. They require TLC and adjustments from time to time.

X2. We love our RV, but there have been several moments I was willing to just give it away I figure they are like horses: just a hobby to throw time and money at for the sheer pleasure of enjoying them. Plus, I think of all the wonderful lifelong friends we have met while on the road... and it's all worth it.

You definitely don't buy them for a worthwhile monetary investment

You can't warranty, lemon law or put a price tag on family time, enjoying yourself or making friends.

I watched 2 minutes of that garbage, that was enough. I have owned 4 campers because I like them. Can't put a value on the experiences we have had and time spent with family and friends.

If you listened to all the experts on every topic you would never do anything.

I have been in 48 states in our RV's. Two of my Grandkids have been with us in 42 states in our RV's

I could never put a value in $$$ on that. But any issues I had with the RV's is far far outweighed by our family experiences on these trips. These trips are discussed almost any time the family get together.

Great public service announcement for anyone thinking of buying an RV. Can’t put a price tag on the truth. In fact anyone buying their first RV should be required to watch it. This may counterbalance all the BS that their salesperson just filled them with.

Igray, exactly the point "Don't buy an RV" grabs attention; some cant get past the title and completely miss the point ... he points out that if you do buy, and he knows we will, be highly educated and don't go in with false expectations ... know what you are signing .. the law is not your friend.
