Dbdreamers, one simple statement. You've heard it, " you only live once.!" The economy is always going to fluctuate. It's very global. Forget your worries of tomorrow for they will only take away today's peace! Live my friend, don't live to die!

We had the same feeling when we purchased our Rev in April, but have not regretted it! Sounds like you found a gem, and hope all works out! Maybe we'll see you along the road.🚍

Go for it. Before our current coach you would find us in a Revolution. It was very nice.

Go for it. Love my 05.
Make sure tires aren't original, there are DOT date codes.
Have a CAT tech run diagnostics on engine if you can. The C9 has a "weakness" with the HUEI pump, that if it fails, will cost ~$6K.
Other than that, pretty bulletproof chassis and house.

The color was unexpected and unlooked for. I almost passed over it when we were searching because it was so "non-standard". Turns out, it is a factory paint job and just one of several nice extras. It has grown on me as time goes by. I am getting to like it a lot!

Question for everyone: To what degree do you go to avoid travel through major cities? Any insights and tips, stories...?
