10 year old Bay star vs 5 year old

Hi all,

My budget allows me to purchase a 2012 Bay star but see older models for sale.

Is there much differences between the two? Both come with a 5 speed gear box, newer ones may have a heavier chassis.

Thanks,

Any idea what a 10 year old TV is like? Now just imagine everything being 10 years old.

One of the 1st things I did with my 12 year old coach was get rid of the CRT and fit an LCD.

I would prefer to get as new as possible a coach but it really comes down to what I can afford when it's time to upgrade.

Our current coach is fine for us but at 12 years old and entry level I want to change in the next year or two.

My budget would be 70k max, but would prefer to spend 50kish.

PPL has 2010 Bay star 2902 for 50k, looks to be a really nice floor plan.
