Here is a quick breakdown of nine different leisure products and their true cost to help you make the right decision when it comes to how to spend your leisure funds.
When it comes to the cost of owning leisure products for five years, an RV is easily the most expensive. RV’s can be a great option if your family takes a lot of trips and enjoys camping. Please be aware of the end cost before you invest. To get your family outdoors and not have it cost a fortune in the long run, ATV’s are a great option. They can be a fun addition for campout’s or trips up to the family cabin. Over a five year period, they will only cost you around $15,000 on average, as compared to $146,000 for an RV. An alternative that costs less is to camp in a tent, versus using an RV.
Hot tubs provide the lowest cost of ownership over a 5 year period. Because there is little upkeep cost for hot tubs, they are a great investment for families’ leisure products; the whole family can enjoy a hot tub at home together for years to come. Pools are a great investment for families who can afford them. One of the con’s to pool ownership is limited usage throughout all four seasons. Hot tubs are a great alternative that can still involve the whole family- year-round and can be the center of fun at your party or get together.
