I too wonder how many of the "new to camping/rving" types will be in it for more than a year or two. The financial realities, TV and RV maintenance and repair issues, dealer and manufacturer derelictions and "tricks," and camping inconveniences will likely take out a lot of them. Add to that the lack of mental and physical resourcefulness/can-do spirit that our culture increasingly cultivates and exudes - This will defeat many of the starry-eyed pups.

Three choices: 1. a big wallet for the dealer to suck the life out of for their shoddy (at best) work; 2. a much smaller wallet, your own tools, a fighting spirit, and a brain; 3. a disintegrating box of poorly designed and assembled junk on your side yard. Sadly and frustratingly, I see more and more of number 1 and number 3.

Could be an awesome "like-new" used market on the horizon!

Local news station here just did a report on this. Said payments can be as cheap as $300 a month and you have all the amenities like flat screen t.v. and stove. Made it out to be a great option

When I bought my first trailer, they offered a 20 year financing plan. A damn mortgage on a vehicle. Payments under 200/mo, I would have paid for that thing twice over if I had stretched it out!
