I'm probably guilty of overthinking the repair issue. I suspect it is pretty rare to blow up an engine or destroy a tranny which would be huge bills in either a gas or diesel rig. But I also know there are more "systems" in a diesel. I suspect our driving would be no more that 5,000 miles per year.

A bit off topic, but for those who have upgraded as a full timer, what is generally the procedure. Find something at a dealer and either trade in your current coach or consign it. Move out of one and into the other! And does it make any difference whether you trade or consign. Seems like it would be very difficult to just buy a new rig, either at a dealer or private party, and then try and sell the current coach especially given the fact that we travel as opposed to just sitting in one spot for months.

Cost of maintenance is a factor I believe, but in looking at rvtrader.com the options are numerous.

Is newer really better? Thanks.

Bill, we love our 2002 Monaco Windsor! It would be in that price range.
