Anyone know of a gas coach for fulltiming

Thinking of trading in our 06 Newmar 4 slide Ventanna 3936. Does anyone know of a large gas coach that's suitable for full timing? Just wondering...
Thanks, Ken McCormack

Take a look at Thor's Challenger 37KT. Three distinct rooms. Very similar to my Challenger 371. JM2...

Depends on what you are looking to accomplish with a trade. You have a pretty good ride for full time living now.

You have a nice diesel and you want to down-grade? Why?

If you don't like your current floor plan, it's possible to remodel for less money than you might think.

We've been full timing for 3 years in a Thor Challenger 37GT. Unlike the 37KT, the GT has a very open floor plan which makes it feel very spacious. Really depends what you are looking for. I'm also curious what it is about your DP that's not working for you?

Why do you call a gasser a down-grade? because they are not as expensive as a diesel?

Hi KenandKaren,
I have the same question as Steve Ownby. If you could let us know why one would need to trade, it might help us make valuable suggestions.

Do I really have to list all the amenities a diesel pusher has that a gas motorhome does not have? Really?

You need to define "suitable for fulltiming" to get a good answer. We lived in one for nearly 12 years which some folks felt was unsuitable. I'd suggest the Winnebago Adventurer, Itasca Suncruiser, Newmar Canyon Star, or the Allegro by Tiffin.

It seems to me that any of the gassers or diesels is"suitable for fulltiming". Heck, some people full time in small C's and even B's. It all depends on what you consider to be adequate space and amenities. You certainly don't absolutely need diesel power or air suspension to fulltime, but they sure are nice in any coach.

Like the others, I'm wondering why you don't fulltime in the rig you have? And what you are trying to accomplish with a trade (where you always lose money anyway!).

Yes, please do, I'm very curious.
