How Old Is Your Coach

Just for fun..how old is your coach, how many miles on it and how long to hope to keep it.

I'll start it off..this is our first Diesel pusher, 2003 with 62k on it. We hope to keep it at least 6 more years.

Dave

I don't really care, you can have as much fun with an old, small rig as a new fancy one!!

I had a used 1993 Allegro Bay 27ft class C I sold in 2010 with 100,000 miles that ran great!

So if I keep my 2008 Damon Outlaw Class A the same 17 years, that would take me to 2025 and figuring my current mileage, hope to make 230,000 miles! Is that possible with a gas motorhome with no major repairs? I'll be 70 years old then. My kids will probably take away my keys...

Mine is an '02 with 26,000 on it. I hope to keep it until the sun explodes (or I can afford to upgrade, whichever comes first.)

1997 National Seabreeze 133 Limited, no slides, 454 Vortec with 71k miles... she was meticulously maintained by the previous owner, and I do the same.. runs like a Swiss watch and I will most likely keep her for a long time... I work for a dealership and have not seen anything new or used I liked better... that says ALOT for a motorhome !
