You need to "put a pencil to it." For short trips, the RV is gonna cost you. The longer the trip the more you will save with the RV. Three years ago we took a month long trip to South Dakota, gas was $4 per gallon. We burnt $1500 worth! Figure motel fees for that many nights vs campground fees, all meals would be in restaurants, air fares, car rental, etc. We actually saved money going in the RV and seeing more of the USA. Plus, what kind of value can you put in sleeping in your own bed, using your own bathroom and not carrying luggage in and out of motels? When you are figuring the motel cost, don't forget all the fees that don't get advertised with the price, city tax, state tax, occupancy tax, etc. That's usually another $10 to $12 per night!
Being something that is considered a prime commodity and a resource, just means that price are to jack up without the people having any control over.
Gone were the days when you would contemplate about buying a ride and going on an RV because it would cost less than an already built house and its maintenance because surely, if you are going RV full time, it would be no easy think to sustain.
Midone, just trying to figure out if you are a rver or just against rving. Do welcome your opinions. If you are approching rvs as saving money you may be dissapointed. We have rved for 45yrs and we can not place a money value we have enjoyed as a family and now as just me and the better half. It has to be something you enjoy. Yes if I had all the dollars spent on camping I could buy a condo for sure but then I would be in one place or doing the swap thing. Rving is just a way of life each has to decide for themselves.
