I know there are many examples of "You might be an RV'er if.."

I made up a few of my favorites over the weekend.
The last one I am guilty of as noted

You might be an RV’er if…………………………………..
. . the Camping World Master Catalog arrives and you lock yourself in the bathroom for an hour with a cordless phone and your VISA card.

... you have several children named after State/National parks you visited.

... you think 11mpg is pretty good.

...you don't flush the toilet at home because you can't find the pedal

…you ride your bicycle to the grocery store for a loaf of bread and cover your tires while you're inside

. . . roughing it means camping in an RV with slide outs and surround sound.

. . . really roughing it means you camp in a PUP.

…on your way out of the house in the morning, you stand there wondering why your front steps didn't retract.

...you spend $276,953 on a new RV, but stay at a Wal-Mart because you think $33 a night is too much for a campground.

...if you walk through the campground and treat it like a RV show.

...if you find yourself staring at any camper while going down the road

... An airplane bathroom seems big.

...you know tow ratings on your truck & RV (& possibly your neighbors, too), but can't remember the ages of your children.

...your child's school science fair project is "Which toilet paper dissolves the best/fastest"

...you look for RV friendly gas stations - when you’re in your car.

...the first thing you and the DW/DH do after setting up is walk through the campground and look for a great spot to reserve for the next trip

…your idea of a romantic dinner is citronella candle light under the stars listening to the wind in the treetops

. .when you have a nightmare, it usually involves "black streaks".

.... Your first date was to the RV show.

... You spend at least one day on your vacation at an RV dealer.

. .. your kids often point out that that's too much trailer for that truck.

... you have awning lights for all seasons/holidays

…the trailer gets more wax than the wife’s car

…you need to explain to a visitor how to flush the toilet

…you celebrate Christmas in July!

…your idea of fun is sitting back and watch folks pull in, set up, or tear down their sights

... if when you open the medicine cabinet at home and you automatically reach out to catch what might fall out.

...you have actually unscrewed the water hose, unplugged the electric cord, and rolled up sewer hoses so you can move to another campsite because you can't acquire the satellite service.

... if your idea of "intelligent conversation" is discussing weight distribution

... if your idea of a "well manicured lawn" is a clean patio mat.

... if your idea of "hi tech" includes wireless indoor/outdoor thermometers.

... if your Mazda Tribute has a license plate in the rear window that reads: PLEASE BE PATIENT WITH ME... I HAVE THIS LARGE MOTORHOME TO PUSH.

... if your idea of a gourmet meal involves SKEWERS or REYNOLDS WRAP.

... if your idea of dressing up for dinner means no CROCS and a BUTTONED SHIRT.

... if your idea of "out for drinks" means under the awning with a cold beer.

... if your idea of a fun "water vacation" means the CG has a pool.

... if your idea of High Speed involves going DOWN HILL.

... if you would rather spend $631.00 round trip on FUEL, and Southwest Airlines could have gotten you there and back for $299.00

And my favorite…….because I am guilty of it is………….
....When buying a new Tow Vehicle, the color has to match the RV.

Those are great! And I have to admit, DW and I are guilty of most of them.
