How do you afford your Dynamax and can you teach me to do the same?

I've been a lurker here for several weeks and would love to own one of these beautiful Dynamax DX3 model motorhomes but the price is somewhat out of my reach right now.

I'm kinda curious as to the profession of the members here who can afford these beautiful rigs and maybe some advice as to how to follow in your steps?

You can always buy one that has been lightly loved.

It takes LOTS and LOTS of money. To aford expensive toys you need a job that pays lots of it. And then you need to throw that money down the toilet. Wise investers put their available cash to work for them.

Real nice. Did someone go potty in your Wheaties this morning? Seriously, if you don't have anything positive and productive to say then I, for one, would rather you please say nothing. We don't need negative comments trashing those of us that chose to purchase a top quality motorhome because we can afford it. Kindly learn how to spell and go spread your ill will somewhere else. Thanks.

Work hard and save like crazy for your retirement. I read a bunch of books about retirement savings before I retired and one thing stuck with me was the 80% rule. When you retire if you have most everything paid for like your house and such then if your retirement income is about 80% of what your working income was, then you'll be fine. Baring catastrophe or market crash. The 80% rule means you can pretty much live as you did when you worked because working costs you about that other 20%. So combine your savings, SS, and 401k or whatever you have and try to get to that 80% figure. Then you can play like you see these folks on here doing.

These aren't absolutes but a pretty good guide that has worked for me since 2006 when I retired. Welcome to the forum!

Its all about priorities. I'm not retired, my wife and I make about the same salary. We chose between a new RV or a second story on the house. I also deferred a new SUV for a few years...

With 2 and 4 year olds, we figure the kids will remember the RV more than the second story or new car. The kids love to play in the RV and have "camped" in the driveway for a change of pace, but we try to get out 6 or 8 times a year.

I can camp on the beach in Camp Pendelton which is 30-40 minutes away for a quick weekend getaway. This year's big trip is to the Grand Tetons / Yellowstone. My guess is that the kids will remember the Cherry Hill water park more than the national parks.

Family time is a good thing.
