For us, the RV decision was never based on an economic argument. It was a life-style travel choice. A quick mental exercise convinced me that if we use the Interstate a lot, the money we spend is about the same we would otherwise be spending on overseas travel. Since we now mainly want to see North America, it wasn't very hard to rationalize.

RV Anthropology

An earlier post in this thread posed questions about RV lifestyles. I was also curious. The only research I could find (other than RV industry marketing) was this:

Over the Next Hill: An Ethnography of RVing Seniors in North America
https://amzn.to/2Ix2wZv
written by a couple of Canadian anthropologists. It includes a lot of actual interviews with RVers in various stages.
