We all dream of a place to go to that is ours. Somewhere near the ocean, in the woods or in warm climate. Some folks buy Time shares or condos. Some even buy 2 or 3 vacation homes. But most of us do not have the resources to do that, especially if you’re a Redneck like me. But I found a great solution.
A Trailer or 5th Wheel.
No, I am not suggesting you live like trailer trash, I really think this is a good idea, and I did it last year in Sequim, Washington.
I love Fishing at John Wayne Marina, in Sequim, Washington. I go there every weekend to Halibut and Salmon fish, along with a little crabbing. It’s about 150 miles from our home and it really gets old driving it all summer.
We looked at land up there, and it averages about $150,000. So we did a little math and here is what we came up with.
I already have a 26 ft trailer, so lets say it cost about $20,000. About the same as a down payment for land up there. Then, if you actually bought some property up there, you still need utilities installed and monthly utility payments every month. Also the average monthly property payment of $1000.00, to $1600.00 including taxes.
Yes, some would argue that it’s an investment, but what if you hate it in 5 years and can’t get rid of it?
So we took our 26 ft Trailer to Sequim Bay RV Resort, right across the street from John Wayne Marina, and setup a monthly site with them for $400.00 a month.
Now we have our own place in Sequim. We can come and go anytime we want and know one cares if we have our two dogs with us.
So tell me. Does it make more sense to buy a trailer, and locate it where you want at about 65% less cost than buying a piece of land. Is it not true that a loan to buy land, would cost more a month in interest, than $400.00 a month?
You now have a vacation home and extra money to actually enjoy it. So go by a new or used trailer and move it around the country. It’s Great!!
