Youíve been dreaming of seeing
the open road. Youíve read every guide, youíve researched all there is to
know about places to go, and the best campgrounds. Youíve spent a
considerable amount of time deciding which type of RV is best for you
family. Youíve even figured out what youíre going to do about the no wi-fi
After months of planning,
youíre finally ready to buy what youíve been waiting for. When all the
negotiating with the dealer is over, you reach a mutual agreement. As you
watch them put up a ďsoldĒ sign right on the front windshield, your
imagination runs wild. Picturing all the amazing adventures you'll have, you
couldn't be happier.
Your family heads off on their first few road
trips and theyíre everything youíve hoped for. Your trips are fun, relaxing,
and provide your family an escape from the hectic world. For the few weeks
youíre out there, anything outside of your RV doesnít exist. All that
matters is your family, and the grand adventure that lies ahead.
Next thing you know, you look back, and that
life-changing epic you went on was years ago. Where did the time go? Now you
realize your RV hasnít even moved at all for 90% of the year! You know you
want to get back out there soon, but you just donít know when.
Work, life pressures, perhaps health problems
bombard your day. It seems as though the time to actually enjoy your RV
escapes you. Yet, what doesnít ever seem to escape you is your monthly
payments. Your insurance, maintenance cost and time don't either. And last,
but definitely not least, the burden of finding where to keep your RV most
of the year.
Youíre exhausted, and time flies by. You wish
you had the same time and energy to just drop everything and continue your
adventure. But, alas, it just isnít in your power to do so yet. After all,
itís not like you were ever planning on being a full-time RVer.
What can you do? Not wanting their RVs left
to waste, some owners let their friends and family use them during most of
the year. At the end of the day, theyíre not using the RVs themselves.
However, problems arise with that. Thereís no guarantee that your friends
and family members will return it in the state that you left it in. Not to
mention, friends and family are adding miles and miles to what is already
becoming a liability. Or what if something worse happens? It can be daunting
to think about.
But that has to be the better option. After
all, your precious RV is just sitting there in the elements costing you
money anyway, right? Isnít it better if at least someone gets to benefit
from it? But, why not let that someone still be you?
