The “Carefree” RV Life

That’s how a local RV dealership describes RVing in their commercials. Ha! One just has to peruse this forum to see that RVing is hardly a carefree lifestyle. In fact, I am firmly convinced that to own an RV one better be a DIYer and confirmed tinkerer. Not complaining mind you, just that I wouldn’t describe owing an RV as the “carefree life”, at least not if you want to avoid problems cropping with your rig and possibly ruining your trips.

If you own an RV, you don't have time for a hobby!
