Getting an RV

We went with JBQ yesterday at an RV show in Alameda County. We saw quite a few models, big and small, but we both agreed that the best value for the money, is the non-slider 24 footer Winnebago (interior pics, floorplan). It can sit/sleep 4 people and in theory it can transport 7. It has a full bathroom with a shower, two double beds, full kitchen functionality and can transport 160 litres or water. I loved it. It felt so romantic and cool.

Thing is though, it doesn’t make sense to get one. It costs over $60,000, it has high insurance ($200 a month), and each time you drive it, it consumes 3x the gas, plus you have to pay about $40 a night to the camping grounds. Overall, it is a very expensive luxury. Having the money to buy it is not enough to justify this thing.
