Watch this video...some great advice...

Why buy a new RV costing six figures and having a monthly payment of like almost $1,000 spread over 15 years not including insurance, gas, maintainence, etc? You won't be able to enjoy it really at all because you'll be working all the time just to pay it off. Why not just buy a way cheaper motorhome 10, 20 years old that is in good condition. At least that way you'll have the time to enjoy it!

If you have to finance it like that you probably can't afford it.

To each their own.

(btw, not everyone who buys a brand new RV is out to brag, boast or impress other people)

We buy what we want, personally, I only paid 1/2 of that for mine new, albeit only a class C not an A, I don't see me buying a cracker box like he's sitting in just to save a little money.
While many people are well off enough to pay cash, Most people find it necessary to finance large purchases, if I had waited till I had $35,000. (or more) saved up to pay cash, I'd never own an RV, same as a house, car or whatever.

Not all, in fact, most RV's cost way less than 6 figures. My TT is 32' ft long and cost about $20k, new! Aside from that I never see it as my business how others spend their money.

Many of us paid substantially more, and financed it, because we want the comfort, convenience and appointments of a nicer motor coach. We are FT and consequently do not have to pay for a house. We planned during our working lifetime so we could afford the payments on a nice motor coach and really enjoy ourselves. Not everyone is planning on the wheels turning every day. Our plan is to travel from point A to point B then spend several months really exploring point B before moving to point C.

As someone else says to each their own. We chose our coach because it fit our lifestyle. If you like the cheaper TT with fake counter tops and uncomfortable beds then so be it. We did not.

And so if the world follows his advice and no one buys new there will no used RV's as of about 20 years. Too Funny.

I chose mine to fit my lifestyle also and my point was he was dead wrong in his assumptions. As I stated it's not my business how others spend their money and thanks for the "Cheap shot", you confirmed a lot of my past experiences with "nice coach owners". BTW, my bed sleeps fine and the counter tops hold whatever I put on them well.

Wow, what a great welcoming committee for the new guy on the block.
One has to admit, his way of thinking is solid. But if you really want the new car smell, of course its a choice of old vs new. I bought a used MH because it had everything we wanted (and in some areas more) and was much more affordable. A new similar one would have cost almost double. Its 12 years old now and still looks good, never been even questioned at any park about its age. And we fulltime. With a new MH, we couldn't afford to fulltime.
