So I recently went on an RV roadtrip last month and outside of the "active shooter" incident, it was a pretty interesting trip.

To be honest, I'm not sure if I like it or not. Part of me does, another part of me doesn't. I can't quite finger my thoughts.

I enjoyed getting out into nature and experiencing this subculture, even the driving aspect wasn't too bad -- but I'm hesitant about an RV being a huge maintenance and money suck. There's an old saying my friend used to say, boats make you broke ... (I guess they cost a lot to fix) ... are RV's the same?

As for what I'd buy, I'd definitely would go with a Class-A as I hate towing and hitching shit. The Class-C's are too small.

The thought that one of these huge Class-A's could be snagged for less than a Lamborghini SV has my interest.

On a side note, this could be a great option to accelerate your Fastlane -- instead of living in an expensive apartment or a house, you could hunker down in an RV park, save money, and grind your business away. If I was 22 and single again, it would be a consideration.

BTW, there's an RV show today at Cards Stadium, I'm going down there to take a look.
I would checkout rvdirect.com , they sell directly from the manufactures over the net, usually 50% off. They can't post their prices, so you have to ask for a quote.

I grew up RVing after I almost was attacked by a bear at age 7. That put an end to our family tenting days. The have lots of benefits like being able to just pick up and go anywhere. My parents bought a new smaller RV for just the two of them now and they have done a few cross country trips in it. Especially now with COVID, it's nice being able to have your own home away from home without needing to talk to anyone else or use shared facilities. It's a lot of work to use and also to drive. You're basically driving a tractor trailer. If you don't enjoy driving, that part alone could put you off. I know that is why my mother never drives and they only go as far as my dad can drive in one day.

I would investigate if a composting toilet is an option in any RV I bought. Not having to empty a black-water tank would be really nice.

If you don't like towing, a 5th-wheel might be a good option. They tow a lot differently than a normal travel-trailer. You need a good truck, though.

We have an old camping trailer that pull around with one of our pickups. It's like an old favorite pair of slippers -- comfortable, very low maintenance, and debt-free . Yes, it has a queen sized bed with my memory foam topper. It has a kitchen, bathroom and the very important forced air heating. We use it off road here in Alaska. We set it up and then run around in our truck or with our ATVs. We could up grade, but why? It's all that we need.
