Maybe you don't want to know. I don't mean the actual cost of the RV but everything else. Every mod, nut bolt, extra tv, lights,etc.

My wife was telling my but I did not believe her, I do now... Wow it add up fast.

So far I have come up with $5500 in Dudads and Farkles.....

we had to empty out the old camper this weekend prior to trading it in onthe new on. The entire one half of our two car garage was full of stuff that we removed, and that didnt even include the stuff you pack prior to going on trips. I couldnt believe it. That stuff sure does add up not only dollar wise, but weight as well. Crazy


I second this! lol When we sold the TT for the TH, I unloaded the TT and just couldn't believe how much "crap" we had in that thing.

As far as cost goes, I don't want to know. The pleasure this brings my family, money can't buy. Gotta pay to play! Like I tell my kids...."cool cost, and I'm willing to pay the price!" lol

Hi,

I generally track my expenses to the penny including everything but food. I spend about $1000.00 per month on the RV (not including the loan payment). I drive it about 1000 miles per month.

I don't know and really don't care. It was never a financial consideration but is a way of life that is worth every penny. I am sure it is high because we have two trailers outfitted with many duplicate items.
