People don't think about it but those $500 car payments every month for 40 years is a bite.
You usually pay much more in a resort town. I've lived in them. Gas, housing, groceries are all higher.

I was just about to say the same thing. Even the Mcdonalds around here don't have dollar menus. All the combos are 5+ dollars!
