I just deleted a very long list of why not to own an RV. I guess it is better to try than to always regret not trying. It is costly and resale is slow. Wish we had rented and taken it on a cross country trip prior to buying one. If we had rented then I would not have agreed to the purchase. Be prepared to always be buying something for the initial start up especially if you tow a small car. DH quickly traded in his truck for a HHR (?), then had to buy whatever it is to attach to the car so it could be attached to the RV, then wind breakers to attach to the awning (which can't be used if it is windy ). So much to learn about that lifestyle. Good luck.
