How do you justify the cost?

No matter if a person buys new or old, the cost is justified for those who use their Airstream.

Concerning those who buy and stay in it once or twice, not so much.

That said, for my trailer and my use, I will come very close to paying for my trailer with the money I didn't spend on hotels over the past twelve months. The other 2 1/2 years of not staying in hotels are BONUS!

Gradiens super tenui glacie.

The fact that I am opinionated does not presuppose that I am wrong......

What is the cost?

I am out on the road about 90 days each year, traveling all around. If I calculate all expenses, TV and AS, including estimated depreciation, I find that traveling in my AS, the cost is $13,980 which includes all costs.

If I were to travel in my car, staying in moderate motels, the total expenses are $15,970.

I have not included food, but if i eat in my trailer this makes the difference even more pronounced.

So, the real question regarding justification of the cost is not what i travel in, where i stay, but how much does it cost me to travel around taking photos, enjoying life....? And, I find the costs well within what I think is in my budget.

Happy trails and Good Luck
