A wise man once told me to buy your last motorhome first. Many have bought a cheaper one, or smaller one to try and save money but ended up buying the one they really wanted later. All they did was waste the money and the quality time with the starter motorhome, then they spent more money to get the one they really wanted. Buy last one first!!!



I agree don't compromise

X2 for me on the Winnebago. I can only speak for the gassers, but I have had several makes and Winnebago is the best value for us.

While I own a Newmar, I have owned a Fleetwood and a Holiday Rambler. I have been happy with each of them. I aspire to own a Newell...... at least that is why I play the lottery!

HERE is a nice, no compromise, used coach if money is no object. I was all lined up to buy it, but Powerball let me down (again). :(

You would have to live in it to justify spending that much.

I wonder if you could substitute a Dish sat receiver for the Direct TV. Little more economical, I think.

No, YOU would have to live it it to justify the cost. I, on the other hand, (having just won the 425 million powerball) would buy it just to make my garage look cool.

To get back to the OP's original question....there are a lot of ifs in the equation. The first starts with how you plan on using it and tied for first is how much do you want to spend. Are you looking at gas or diesel? With or without bunks? Bath and half? How about chassis? Will it be Freightliner or Spartan? Weekends or long trips?

Well, I think you get the picture. You mentioned Monaco which may or may not be a good unit. The reason I say that is the changes in ownership that Monaco has undergone may make a particular year either a good buy or a bad one. Lots and lots of variables that you need to put on the table to get a good answer to your question.

BTW, just to clarify, the Prevost is the chassis that some manufacturers put the really expensive rigs on. Those manufacturers that I know of are Liberty, Marathon, and Featherlite. There may be more, but those are the ones that come to mind.

I'm seriously looking at Thor's new super C it is a diesel, that is one thing I wanted and it is cheaper than a class A, now if I could swing a class a and not break the bank a class A is my choice, but being it will be me traveling for business, I need comfort, towing ability for the toad. The Thor will tow up to 5000 lbs no problem. What ever the RV I end up with it has to be a diesel.

The easiest way to answer your question resist is just go out and buy any motor home.....use it for one season......your next motor home that you buy will be the one that is perfect for you & your happy wife....yes even she will know exactly what she wants!!!!!!
