The price is great, he's been steadily dropping it over the last couple months. He's going to send me more photos tonight.

When it rains it pours, I've been trying to contact the owner of a 1998 Intrigue in Victoria, TX for over a month. I finally made contact today!

Was that Allure at Motorhomes of Texas? They seem to do such nice prep that it would be a shame if they were trying to sell a coach with water damage that extensive.

Headed over to Louisiana to look at a 2000 Dynasty tonight. We have our fingers crossed that this one will be as good as it looks.

The Monaco looked good. We left a deposit pending an inspection so we have our fingers crossed. We wanted a CC, but couldn't find a good one in our price range.

That's a nice coach. Does the 2000 have full body paint or vinyl graphics?

How did the inspection go or are you still waiting?

It went into idle and wouldn't accelerate during the test drive. They have to fix that before we can do the inspection. The local Cummings dealer diagnosed it as a bad accelerator position sensor, but wouldn't fix it as its not part of the engine. They are taking it to another place next week to get it repaired.

We purchased our 99 CC Allure 40' two years ago. The exterior was in great shape and most importantly the engine check out great with only 59,000 miles. We did a little updating on the interior and the old girl still gets compliments and I don't have a payment.......RV life is good! They are out there you just need to be patient and persistant in finding the gem.

That is a nice looking coach... Heck, in RV Age (Same as dog, but depending upon the previous owner(s) it could be from a 1 to 3 or 1 -17 year ratio!), I look like I'm a 135 years old!!! That gal, your coach, looks like she is just exiting the teenage years!!!!

Enjoy, and thanks for sharing the pictures....

Good looking coach. We're hoping we found a good one.

The coach has been repaired so we can arrange to have it inspected. We may have it by the weekend.
