Brian, this, like many forums, consists of the exchange of information, ideas, and opinions among other things.

My statement that "it confuses me ....," the key word being "ME," was a summary of my approach to RVing or, if you like, a statement of my opinion. Taken in context with the rest of my post, it was not critical of anyone else or their choices, it was a statement pertaining strictly to MY perception. SELECTIVELY quoted and taken out of context, any statement can be manipulated to mean something entirely different from what was intended. I would believe that people purchase a luxurious camping trailer rather than continuing to utilize a tent or the back of a station wagon for reasons of comfort as I did. And I chose options to ensure comfort under any and all conditions because, in MY opinion, that is what is important.
I (they key word is "I") fail to see why my clarification of a statement pertaining to MY opinion which was (again in my opinion, yours may differ) taken out of context with the entire concept I was expressing returns this thread to a productive discussion.
