|February 2009 Intro|
2008 was such a bad year for the RV industry, skyrocketing gas prices and a declining economy was very bad indeed. I have owned an RV for 5 years, thoroughly loving the experience. I will be watching the industry with crossed fingers this year, hoping that the manufacturers and service providers can make a comeback in 2009. Enjoy this website and the products for sale in it. Feel free to offer any suggestions for content as well.
Owner of RV Stuff
This is not likely a question you are asking if you came to this site, but I thought it still a very good topic of discussion anyways.
There are a million different reasons to consider RV ownership. The primary ones are to travel, to spend time with your family to use it for a means of housing while on business, or while enjoying a traveling sport or past-time. Then of course it makes a great full-time home for retirees
I personally never considered owning an RV until experiencing using one first hand while showing my horse. Normally I stay in hotels, but on this occasion I had the offer to travel and stay with a fellow competitor who had a living quarters horse trailer. It was so cool to be able to get up, throw a hat on and go ride and compete, then unwind with a shower and a nap in the afternoon. I ate better because I brought food and was able to prepare healthy fresh meals when I had time to make them.
As a family sightseeing vehicle an RV can't be beat. My husband and I went to Yellowstone last year and it was a blast! we were able to leisurely see all the sights and rest or eat in the parking lot as the need arose.
When I did my cost analysis before making my RV purchase, all reports were that RV travel is NOT a cost savings, but rather an alternate option to staying in hotels. I have had an RV now for 2 years and did a cost analysis which shows that for my RV usage it actually is a cost savings.
