Hey, maybe we should debate how many angels can dance on the head of a pin. I'll say 50!

We bought our motorhome for work. We have been using it most weekends. My wife performs at shows and festivals - we generally leave Thursday or early Friday and stay on site at the show. It has been great to walk out the door when the show closes, go a couple steps and we're 'home'. We save on food by cooking instead of going to a restaurant for every meal. Like many said before, it is nice to sleep in a bed you know, we've had some rooms in the past where you wanted to sleep standing up. We now feel like we have the freedom to travel farther and longer than before. We're planning trips to Florida in the fall and of course all of January and February.

We found a barely used Freelander for a good price. Other then replacing the original tires from 2006, this thing has been trouble free. We will be happy if we at least break even when all is said and done, but I'm pretty sure it will make money if there are no major repair needed in the future.

But best of all, we are really enjoying our new lifestyle!

This really works well for you. A space of your own to escape to after a busy
weekend.
Definitely a plus for you both. And cost effective.

It's what I like to do. I know what I have invested in my RV and Truck and am quite content. Those that knock it seem to be the ones that will come around and ask to borrow it for a weekend.

My wife and I both traveled extensively on business during our working years and looked forward to weekends in our RV. Now retired, motels are not an option, we would not trade our RV for anything (except maybe a new RV which we just did). Hate living from a suitcase, packing and unpacking, sleeping in others beds. Cost does not come into the equation.
