We bought our coach for the purpose of fulltiming. We've owned and full timed in our newell coach motorhome for 5 years. Melba and I enjoy it and hope to continue to do it for a few more years. If it were our sons choice we'd have sold the coach and moved into a retirement living place close to their home. I have a feeling hes trying to change the roles here? But we're still the parents...as long as I'm still sane, I haven't lost my mind completely. We'll sell our coach when we quit the fulltiming lifestyle. Until then we plan on kicking back taking in our ever changing view!
The RV industry claims in general the average person keeps their motorhome 2-4 years. Doesn't seem very long. I wonder if that is just swapping around through different types and models or total ownership altogether? The reference didn't go into that detail.

We have had ours almost 7 years. Prior to this, we were changing our RV out about every 3-4 years. It pays to get something that is big enough, sturdy enough and designed well enough that you don't think about trading it as soon as you get it. As far as depreciation is concerned, there is one real easy rule of thumb: the more you pay for it, the more it will depreciate.
