An RV is more than a “depreciating asset”

 An RV is more than a “depreciating asset”

This video discussion was prompted by a recent comment on YouTube from someone who thought it foolish to invest a lot of money in a motorhome, which he saw as a “depreciating asset.”

The comment got me thinking that, in reality, our RV is an “appreciating asset,” in that we appreciate so many things in a new way because of what the RV allows us to do.

I shared my thoughts with our social media audience on Facebook and found lots of agreement. Plus we answered a lot of side questions about the RV lifestyle. What do you think?
