And just how long are you planning on being gone? This time, that is.
One huge challenge with retirement planning is figuring out the terms...

You do realize that a cheap hook up at an RV place will run you about $360 per month? I have a lot of relatives with RV's including my sister and brother in-law that have a large RV with a turbo Cummins pusher. My parents had a smaller one but still pretty large. RVing is expensive. For years my wife and I wanted to travel in our own RV when we retired but after seeing the expense we have decided to continue to take the cheaper route and stay in a hotel. LOL. The difference in fuel costs between a car and an RV just about pays for the hotel room. It costs my sister about $150 in fuel to drive to a destination 250 miles away and back. We can do that in our car for about $37.00.

My neighbor has about $100k invested in their motor home. That seems an awful lot of cash to be able to take your bathroom along with you when you go fishing...
And I don't like fishing all that much. Besides, my wife likes to camp at the Marriott. Preferably at the Courtyard, or better.
When I dream of hitting the road for a while, it generally includes an image of a red convertible, preferably European in origin. ;-)
YMMV, I guess. And your destinations, too.

... and best of all -- *you* get to clean it out when you get home (or it gets full)

These days, my idea of roughing it is staying at a Motel 6. Unfortunately, the youngster doesn't think like that and thinks camping is cool. So I get to go along with the Pioneers campouts and use a flashlight to find a bathroom that consists of a plastic toilet sitting over a glorified hole in the ground that is food to 60 bazillion flies.

YMMV, and it does vary, but be aware that our second trip may be around the world, with several months in Europe. And I'd like a Corvette. 8-)

RVing for 30 years and are aware of the situation. FYI, we've done the math and can afford it, largely because we won't have a house to support.

OK cool. You are not new to this. It is surprising how many people that do jump in head first and end up not caring for RV'ing for months on end.

The thing that would concern _me_ is that I don't know if I could stand that much togetherness, even with the woman I've been married to for over 32 years. One or both of us has always had a space to which we could 'retire', should solitude become an immediate neccesity.
These days, a large dust collection system, and hearing protection, provides a degree of safety in so many ways.
I have heard of woodworkers who take along a mini-lathe, when they go, so they can do some power wittling and firewood customization as needed...

I would also suggest Edward Lear's little ditty about, "The Owl And The Pussycat".
Highly instructive, that.

I prefer the pussycat in the movie version, thanks. Whatta bod! (No, I don't agree with Ms. Bab's politics and can overlook the schnozz. My eyes never get that high. ;)
