Gas $ 2,131
Not very high because I mostly stayed in Arizona this year.
Groceries $ 1,923
Repairs and Tags for car and trailer $ 1,883
Includes 2 new tires each for the car and the trailer, plus a new axle for the trailer.
Camping Fees $ 1,849
I spent 2 1/2 months in RV parks in Mesa and Prescott when it got too hot, the rest is dry camping.
Photography and Computers $ 1,455
No new computer this year, but my 4 new cameras cost $1,053. (It's an addiction...)
Entertainment $ 854
Eating out, dancing, and a few tours
TV, Internet, and Telephone $ 995
Would be higher, but I share them with Phil
Vehicle Insurance $ 801
Clothes $ 538
Propane $ 298
Miscellaneous "Stuff" $ 1,153
This includes non-consumable supples and unaccounted-for items. The biggest item was my new TV and mounting bracket for $ 154.
So far, the total is $ 13,880, and it looks pretty good. But here are the killer items:
Health Insurance $ 4,644
Fortunately, I recently got other insurance, so next year should be under $ 3,000.
Medical and Dental $ 7,522
I had quite a bit of dental work done this year, and I refuse to have it done in Mexico.
So now we're up to $ 26,046.
I have not included non-RVing expenses, such as the trip to Tahiti, the trip to my son's wedding, or the trip to my father's 90th birthday party.
I have also not included income tax or the cost of new vehicles (none this year) or the loss in value of my current vehicles.
Another note - I am not trying to be particularly frugal. If I see something I want, I buy it. (Hence all the cameras...) But I always try to get the best deal possible.
