Kind of sure we have spent more than a K for the stuff we have that is for the lite only.

I think it has been money well spent...

Boat people, see this same phenomenon at the boat launch on a regular basis.

They don't tell you it's an addiction, and that after buying your first one you should STAY AWAY from your dealer's sells lot and RV shows!

I look outside and see the reason I have stayed away from RV shows and the dealers lot.
I like what I have, I think I'll keep it.

Or that sick feeling you get...

When you get stuck in the yard backing into your garage.

No, I didn't take pictures. I have the evidence on the ground.

Pulled into a campground and was assigned a spot, pulled up and had to back RV (CC36RE) between two other units. A group of people where setting around a camp fire across the way and before backing unit in I went over and told everyone to give me $1.00 that if I was going to provide the evenings entertainment they where going to have to pay. I made $5.00 for the show and meet some wonderful friends.

Watching the camper (with wife and kids inside) roll down a sloping campsite because I forgot to chock the wheels before I took it off the ball hitch. All this in a downpour. All are ok by the way. Kids loved the "ride"
