There is something in your post that doesn't make sense to me. That is why do you have a car loan to start with?

With income that is high enough to not be eligible to the Traditional IRA and apparently financialy secure enough to have an expensive RV, I have to ask myself why there is a car loan and why you didn't pay cash for the car? (Not that it is really any of my business.) It just doesn't seem to fit in the financial picture that I got from the rest of your post.

Have you considered taking some of the money and use it to pay for some personal financial and retirement planning (not stock picking) classes at your local collage or community center. The reason that I say this is that I have met a number of well-paid, well-educated people who somehow never picked up all the financial skills that I would have expected.

There have been a number of discussions about how the American education system fails to provide basic economic skills so if this is true in your case then you are not alone.
