As with any RV, be prepared to fix things yourself otherwise you might be in for extended stays at the dealership. I was driving a Thor Challenger to our dealership in another state, for example, and the dining room table came loose from its mount and crashed to the floor. Apparently, all 8 mounting screws had backed themselves out.

The Miramar, being towards the lower end of the motorhome food chain, won't have the sound deadening materials to quiet the engine at 4200 rpms while climbing a grade that you would find on a Canyon Star or Allegro, so you might want to add some yourself.

Momluga, I'm assuming you've already made your decision but my advice is do your research. Check the pricing of what's being offered to you against the price guides and what others are selling the came coach for.I highly recommend the book, Buying a Used Motorhome" by Bill Myers. You can get it for free as an Amazon Kindle. There's a ton of great advice in there. The best advice you'll get is a) buy a coach with the idea that you're going to need to sell is someday. You don't want to owe more than it's worth- ever. b) Do not fall in love with a motorhome and don't let your husband fall in love with one. They will break your heart one day, I promise. Disregard those who tell you the Miramar isn't as good as something else. That will be true of everything you buy. Buy from a dealer with a verifiably good reputation. Don't be shy about asking for customer references esp customers who have had troubles. You want to know how the dealer took care of THAT guy.

Have fun on your adventure!
