5. A Luxury RV

A few years ago my preconceptions of RVs were completely changed when we spent a few days with some friends in the luxury Bluewater RV resort, just outside of Key West. The resort itself was beautiful, complete with ocean front views, gorgeous greenery, and a lush pool. But the RVs themselves were pure luxury on wheels! Stylish interiors with everything you could ever need inside. At this resort, many owners offer their RVs for weekly and monthly rentals, allowing you to experience the comfort of your own private RV for your entire vacation.
