Purchasing an RV may seem like an expensive investment, but over the years it will save you thousands on vacations.

Additionally they have a fold down ramp so if you have motorcycles or other small vehicles inside your RV they are easy to get in and out. They also cost from around $10,000, and range in size from 19 - 39 feet.
