Two weeks in Mexico or buy a motorhome? Empty Two weeks in Mexico or buy a motorhome?

My daughter-in-law is looking for a half term break for her family of four, and quite fancied a week in Mexico. This is one of the cheapest she could find..
I pointed out that for the price of two of those weeks she could buy a fairly new Motorhome....

Prices have gone through the roof as far as travel is concerned and it looks like that will continue. Normally if we buy flights in the sale with BA to Vancouver it costs us about £3500 return, business class for two of us. We are going back across end of May and the BA fare is now nearer £8000!!!
Worth looking at different options, in May we are going via Dublin, so Newquay-Dublin-Vancouver-Nanaimo, even with a Hotel in Dublin on the way out it works out £5000 less than BA and BA only got me to Vancouver. It also saves a five hour drive to Heathrow! 
The deals are out there but finding them.....

I started a decking project just before the first lockdown, but when everything closed down I mothballed it. However this week I've got round to finishing it off.
I knew things would be more expensive after two years, but wasn't expecting by quite so much.. Comparing invoices from the same builder's supplies, timber is up 50%, cement and aggregate 40%, screws, nails and other fittings 35%.. And this is before the effects of the fuel prices have worked their way through..
