  1. Your wife wants something new for the trailer and you're more concerned with how much it weighs and where you're going to store it than how much it costs.
  2. You know why to put a square of TP in a jar of water and shake it
  3. You give the "nothing but human waste and TP goes in the toilet" lecture to guests camping with you for the first time
  4. You're a Canadian with warehouse space in the US for RV parts and accessories
  5. By the time new year rolls around you've got most of your trips planned and some of them booked
  6. Your hand automatically drops to the bottom of the wheel when it's time to back up the trailer
  7. You finish modding your rig, sell it and buy a new one so you can start over.
  8. If you like Ontario Parks but (a) resent having to carry 100' of extension cord and (b) despise the 23-day waltz.
  9. You do all your own maintenance, mods and repairs because you work faster, better and cheaper than a dealer.

Really, I don’t see the problem, except someone’s “egg” is in the picture.

7-14 days - depending on weather. Waiting for it to warm up a bit and stay dry.

Your Christmas list includes a fantastic vent and cover or a refrigerator control board.

We got an Amazon gift card and the DW immediately asked if we needed anything for the camper.

...when you need to leave your wallet and money at home to prevent yourself from buying anything at the RV show.

They're ready for people like us that do that. It's called "Credit". If it's expensive enough they'll sell it to you for $xxxx per month.

Same happens when you go in to buy the "Economy Model". Then a whole team of sales people explain to you how all the fancy extras are "only a few dollars a month more".

I don't go to RV shows. I wait until a Dealer has something I like that they've either over-purchased at THEIR industry show and have to move so they can make their payments, or something I like that has sat on the lot until the next year's model's have started to arrive and the Dealer is somewhat desperate to move.

The first scenario is how I bought my last TT.
