I'm like Herk, constantly buying something here or there. I don't spend money on anything but my truck and trailer though. We are on a permanent site and cost is $975 per year. Insurance is about $360 a year with 500 deductable.

Thanks, everyone. I assumed that the costs would be varied and am hoping that a new rig will have minimal costs, outside of travel expenses, for the first few years. I am surprised by the range in insurance costs, though. We are paying $80/$250 deductible per year through Erie Insurance. Very inexpensive.

I throw $300 a month at the account i set up for the payments to come out of. insurance for it and my collector car are 200 for a year.

all in all its cheap but long for the financing. good thing is since its an RV i can pay off extra chunks and no penalty for it. I was financed through TD bank (Toronto Dominion)

Well I may be an excpetion to the norm, we took a 12 month loan on our TT and are paying 497.79 monthly payment (only have 5 more to make), 34.00 a month for insurance, and 55.00 a month for storage. Now as for going on a trip that cost's hundreds with gasoline/supplies/site fee's/etc.

I just looked at the registration- we pay 50.00 for the plates and 240.00 in tax to the township. the tax will go down every year, most likely to be replaced by another tax!

ours is based on MSRP, not selling price.

Hi Everyone,
I have a 09 Cedar Creek RD5S which is parked at an rv lot on a beautiful lake. It is open for 6 mths. This years assessment is 1300. It includes water, hydro, garbage, taxes, warf space for a boat, and the use of all park grounds, tennis court, golf, horse shoes etc. I pay cable at $110, internet $36, for the 6 mths, and the only other thing is insurance for the whole year is $700 as I have total replacement value. So
I could say that close to $180 a mth. A cost of a good Hotel room for one night. To maintain my unit so far has cost very little as it is pretty new and no problems so far.I think I am lucky.
