"Only" and "$110,000" don't go together in the transportation section of my budget!

I'm glad that all of you are fulfilling your patriotic duty to stimulate our economy by buying expensive gas-guzzling RVs and chugging across country in them. Just not my cup of tea, I suppose.

Another puny attempt at humor on my part, I am afraid.

i paid more than that when i bought mine back in oct. 2000 (& paid cash in full, had a really good year at work ) we use it quite frequently, although not as often as when we used to drag race all over the western states.
