Re: Would you rather own a sailboat or a RV?
all depends on how you are comparing prices. yes you can stay in a $40/ night motel but really do you want to?
or $40 campsight gets you nice campground, pool, often a hot tub, cook in your own unit, sleep in your own bed. sometimes a lake, sometimes hiking trails,
if you're comparing prices you have to look at an equivalent stay. for me to stay in a hotel equivalent to my RV would be well over $100 / night.
Flat screen, cable, open bar, surround sound, A/C, heat, kitchen, covered patio, all new furnishings and bedding, non smoking unit, not too mention outside fireplace. Girly wants one with an inside fireplace next. LOL (yes they have them)
Plus the fact it's usually fun to get to know folks around you. I have never walked around a hotel/motel and gotten to know others around me. Campground we almost always do it.
