If anyone is in the neighborhood of Temecula, California, check out the coaches parked at the Pechanga RV Resort.
Stopped by there last evening to visit (short) with the in-laws and could not believe my eyes. It is not unusual the see one, maybe two high-end coaches in a single park, but there was forty some odd. I would guess everyone one of them was six figures plus. While I love my Alpine, it was fun walking around dreaming of what I would buy if I had more money than sense.

I would guess the total investment in these units would make a good dent in the budget that Junior just sent the The Hill for approval.

Walt,

Reminds me of the first time we stayed at the Outdoor Resort in Indio years ago. At the time we had a brand new Lazy Daze class C, and definitely felt out of place surrounded by all the Prevost buses. And Mercedes toads.

How is retirement?

If they stay at Pechanga long enough (and visit the casino) they can trade their high end coach in for a seat on a high end Greyhound

You don't think they won the money to buy the high end coach gambling at Pechanga?? Me either!

Reminds me of when my wife and I moved our coach to our newly acquired spot at Outdoor Resorts Indio (the new side). I was feeling pretty smug about my cool new Alpine and our Jeep Wrangler toad parked in our new place. I got up early the next morning to walk my dog around the park. We walked for about a half hour, doing a loop around a couple of the streets. Seems like all we saw were Newells, Prevosts, and large 45' tandem axle coaches of other types. I mean dozens of each!

When we got back to my coach I found myself saying to the dog..."I don't remember having a VW bus with a beetle towd!!"

Seeing all these extraordinary coaches in one place is really amazing. In spite of all that we are really excited about having a 36' Alpine.
I enjoy seeing all those really high-end coaches. It's like going to a hot-rod or custom car show and seeing cars that are all in custom paint and 45' long!

I find the owners of most of these really high-end coaches to be just friendly, "regular" people who happen to be able to afford the best money can buy.
