Gypsy Journal RV: Frugal vs. foolish

From the bloggers at Gypsy Journal RV.

Is it worth it? I can’t tell you how many times I get this question from both new and experienced RVers.

Our tires are eight years old but have lots of tread left and don’t have any cracks. Is it really worth buying new tires?

Are the expensive fire extinguishers, refrigerator compartment, or engine compartment fire suppression units Mac McCoy sells really worth it?

Our motorhome (or truck) is only a year old. Is emergency roadside service really worth it?

You recommended Chris Yust at C&C Insurance, but I got a quote from XYZ Insurance Company that was $32 cheaper a year. Is it worth paying the extra money?

As I wrote a few months ago in a blog titled How Much Is Your Life Worth?, only you can decide when “saving” money is frugal or foolish. Safe tires, or good roadside service, or proper RV fire extinguishers, or having an insurance agent who looks at all of your needs and advises you on the coverage you need under all circumstances you might encounter is kind of like a gun for self-defense. You never need any of them until you REALLY need them! And when you do, those paltry few bucks you may have saved by cutting corners are nothing compared to what you stand to lose.
