Whenever the topic is on saving money on camping you inevitably hear someone say if they can afford a motorhome they can afford to pay whatever the cost and should not complain.
Unfortunately they lump us all into one group, and that is far from the truth.
I have seen some people look at our rig and say boy, did you pay 200,000. for that? LOL Not hardly I tell them, and occasionally I tell them exactly what we paid. Not a big deal to me.
But for us we still have a home and travel about 3 months to 5 months out of the year.
We kept one motorhome that we loved for 13 years before finally deciding to buy a new one.
We have a mortgage on our motorhome, so there is a need for us to watch our costs. For some reason people seem to think you just buy the motorhome and don't get a mortgage.
I think sometimes that those who run campgrounds think that all of us who have motorhomes are just loaded and should never take costs into consideration.
Lately I have started to think that having this new motorhome might not be worth the cost to us anymore. We will wait and see. We love to travel, but when you consider the monthly costs, plus the insurance costs, gas cost,and campground costs it is guite expensive. Also costs for yard work on our yard.
I know if we decided to sell our home and go full time it would be easier, but with the costs of homes increasing so much, my concern would be buying another home if we decided to stop motorhoming.
I just occasionally get really annoyed when people act like we could not possibly have a budget to stay within. Anyone else ever feel like this? I even see it on this forum at times, calling people tightwads when they don't want to pay for one thing or another.
