Vacation Home Buying Fizzling. RV's too?

How many think this article from the Washington Post could be reprinted substituting "RV's and Boats" for "Vacation Homes"? Those monthly payments are going to start looking ugly when you're finding it hard to pay for gas and food. https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2022/05/04/pandemics-vacation-home-buying-frenzy-beginning-fizzle/

RE: MA, NH, VT

Hi Harry, I'm going to guess your looking for more outdoor activity type parks? In the NE corner of CT is West Thompson Lake COE. Larger W/E sites, tenting, clean bathrooms, hiking, fishing, Rail trail down the road. I would book NOW if you want to get what your looking for. Atlantic Oaks Campground out at Cape Cod has a tenting area along with large pull through sites loads of stuff to do in the area. The Lincoln/ Woodstock KOA in NH should have everything your looking for also, more of a resort type park but also loads of stuff to do in the area. All the parks mentioned are well maintained and get good reviews. If you post back on specifics on what your looking for I might have some more suggestions :C Mike Thanks Mike. I'll ck them out

MA, NH, VT

Looking to spend a Monday - Friday this summer with our daughter, SIL, and granddaughters (6 & 8). We have a 5th wheel. They'll be in a tent. The state parks are good for the tents, not so much for the fiver. Most of the RV parks the other way. Any suggestions that are good for both? Thanks. __________________

RE: Holy Chutzpa on the Surcharges Batman

I agree, vote with your feet and your dollars. The sellers of anything will learn soon enough potential customers have become extremely annoyed at price gouging. With the stock market tanking and gas prices rocketing, I think it's going to be a long dark spring for the RV dealers that aren't willing to work with customers.

RE: Back to Zion woo hoo!

46 out of 50 states down, and Zion was the best trip.

RE: Holy Chutzpa on the Surcharges Batman

First time dealing with a used car salesman? Far from it. He actually put up a pretty good front, until I said that we would be bringing in an independent inspector to write a full evaluation. He said he'd never had anyone want to do that before. But the company? Shame on me. I should have been worried when I saw that it was a chain with 30 locations.

Holy Chutzpa on the Surcharges Batman

So the 5th wheel is 4 years old. The price is within reason. So we make an appt. and take a look. The theater seats need to be replaced. Dinette table finish is toast. The TV is missing. But all okay if they'll make some allowances. We sit down to talk. When the salesman finishes asking us about our trade in (2011 in reasonable condition for the age), he goes off for coffee with his boss. 15 minutes later, he comes back with the news that they won't make any money if he takes our unit in trade. Now the really good part. $1000 charge if we don't finance through them. They call it a "Finance discount" if we do. The 90 minute PDI is called a "Peace of Mind Package" for $995. Best of all. "Factory Freight" for $990. IT'S A USED UNIT THEY TOOK IN TRADE! When did the factory get involved? Plus a doc fee of $468. $3453 in surcharges. And we have to sell our own unit. If I wanted to be an RV salesman, I would have found a different profession 40 years ago. Without a word, we both stood up. "Thanks for your time sir. We are all done here."

RE: Is the Good Sam Club worth it?

I'm not so sure. We did 6300 miles this fall, staying at 19 different campgrounds. Only 2 honored a GS discount. As far as the gas? Many of the Pilot stations were Pilot for the diesel pumps only. The gas pumps were a different brand. Mostly Cenex. At 5 cents/gal, it would take 580 gallons to recoup the $29/year. So at 10mpg, I would have only come out ahead if we had been able to use the discount at virtually every gas stop on our 6300 mile trip. I'll be generous and say that we might have used it 25% of the time. On top of that, I just received a renewal notice for a membership that doesn't expire for more than 5 months. One more reason for it to head to the recycle can.
