Cable, Internet for longer stays, lap top for travel. Printer, Gps and a good camera for all the pictures you want to have. Sun screen. Beach chair, patio chairs. mail forward service. It's well worth it, every dime.

You said a 40 foot MH.I would suggest renting one and finding a place to camp in it. You mite find you don`t want or need a 40 footer.When you get over around 32 feet it sure cuts down on the camping spots you will fit.

Don’t forget property tax to your city or town, I just sent out a check to my town for $2600.00+ for 2012 tax year, I hate paying taxes on something I already paid for at time of purchase & have to continue to pay every year just because it is in my driveway.

Pardon my ignorance but why do you have to pay tax on that?


Because we live in Taxachusetts, I have to Renew registration every year, inspection sticker every year & pay property tax on all 3 vehicles, again every year. Are we the only state doing this? I know Rhode Island also has property tax on vehicles every year too.

No you are not but they get you one way or another.Lived in Virginia they had tax on every thing on wheels down to you riding lawn mower if I think over twenty horse power.About a fifteen hundred a year with no RV. but my house was less than 10 years old on over a acre and was about 750 a year.Now live in Florida Tags about three to four hundred a year but have a house built in 1968 on three lots and all is about 2500 a year.It would be about the same or a little less if I still lived in VA.Not much difference.

Taxes > Here in Georgia they have something they call ad valorum taxes. I think translated from the Latin it means pay for it twice or three times! Basically it is a personal property tax for all motorvehicles. With a high dollar coach it can be considerable - but if I start down that road I will start ranting and then no one will want to come visit Georgia.

To all of the above add fixes, upgrades, and mods that you'll need or want to do. We just bought our 36 footer a month ago and I have already spent $300 on minor fixes and mods. Need to spend about $1800 more to get it ready for spring travel.

We spend $12,000 per year on fuel. $1,000 per year on oil/filter change for engine/generator (at Freightliner, too expensive). $1,000 per year on insurance. $60 per night average 50 amp full hookup campground during high season. Many times we pay $100 per night at some RV resorts. $120 per year on Coach-Net. $50 per year on FMCA. $400 per year on FMCA International Rally full hookup. $4800 on hooking up our toad. $240 per year washing our RV. And so on... We really love RVing, but sometimes, we wonder how many cruises we can go on, or how many nights at a Four Seasons we can stay, for the price of RVing too.

FL registration and tax is reasonable. You pay sales tax once and maybe $150/yr for registration.
Since you said a 40'... probably dont want to park it out in the sun/rain/morning dew so a carport will run you about $6k with concrete and basic cover.

Convenience = priceless
