There is no right or wrong choice between an RV or a timeshare. My travel style is just better suited for Timeshares than RV's. In this Video, I try to describe what it is about my travel style that makes timeshares better for me. My goal is to help you decide what is right for you based on my experiences.

Timeshares and RV's can be expensive. A new Truck cost upwards of $70,000. You can easily spend $30,000 on a timeshare and a whole lot more. There are ways to reduce your costs. But choosing the wrong one will not help you if you bought the wrong type of travel. I hope you find this video helping you make a better decision.

We have been campers our whole marriage and each of us with our families before we met. We started off in a 9X12 tent, then went to a pop-up tent trailer when our first son was born then when baby #3 was on the way we got a 23ft travel trailer. After a lot of discussion DH & I have come to the conclusion that we will sell our RV and just stick to timesharing. The cost of gas when towing as well as the high cost of a campsite (over $50.Cndn/night for an Ontario Provincial Park, higher cost in many private ones) makes timesharing not only cheaper but we get lots more room and comfort. As our DD (who is not a fan of camping) says, 'why pay all that money to live like a homeless person when you can stay in a really nice 2 bedroom & 2 bathroom timeshare for about the same cost?' The campground across the road from our timeshare in St. Augustine, where we used to camp, charges about $100./night now and we stay right on the beach in our timeshare for less than $100/night and can drive our car down which burns less than 1/2 the gas as our truck towing the trailer does. I will miss sitting around the campfire in the evening looking at the stars!

I/we have enjoyed travel by RV as well as timeshares! It really does depend on the experience you're looking for.

We don't own an RV, but have been blessed with friends in Alaska with one, which afforded us the opportunity to barter our Hawaii timeshare for use of their RV. We did four trips (all two weeks in length) and thoroughly enjoyed the freedom an RV provided. It wouldn't have been possible without the timeshare to swap. WIN WIN for both families.
