As I scrolled through my Facebook memories, I discovered the following photo I took, which I originally shared to my wall in December of 2012, and decidedly re-posted it, while adding a commentary…
Wanting the freedom to ACTUALLY own our home, and to move as we please, my husband and I purchased a 38 ft. 2001 Monaco Diplomat RV three years ago, today. 🙂 True liberty!
To understand what I mean, try not paying the “property tax” on your house, and you’ll soon find out who really owns it! Not too mention that most also spend a third of their life paying off a 30-year-loan, too!
Using a seven-year bank loan to buy a large used RV in full working order, with only 36,00 miles used on a diesel engine that’s still under warranty for 500,000 miles, as well as a 50 amp diesel generator, a 1500 watt 30 amp inverter, four deep-cycle house batteries, 100-gallon diesel tank, hydraulic leveling jacks, a propane/electric furnace, a propane/electric fridge, two 12,000 btu air conditioners, a 38-gallon propane tank, a 3-burner stovetop range, a convection oven, a booth dinette that seats 4, a 100-gallon water tank, a 10 gallon boiler, a 60-gallon grey tank, a 40-gallon septic tank, a shower with bathtub, a double kitchen sink, a bathroom sink, a queen-sized bed, a leather couch that pulls out to into a full-sized bed, leather power driver and passenger seats that rotate, a CD player with four ceiling speakers, front 32 inch widescreen LCD with DVD player, back 26 inch widescreen LCD, also with DVD player, CB radio, VCR, satellite TV antenna dome, solid wood-paneled cabinets, ceramic-tiled floors, a patio awning, a 15,000 lb. hitch, and multiple storage bays … is a little under $700 a month, with insurance under $100! That is less than most people pay for rent!
Want a change in scenery, weather, neighbors, community, temperatures, State laws, etc.? With an RV, simply drive to a new location, without hassle! No leases, no listings, no resales, no permission, no problem!
