In that case I would've had to say to Mr. Uppity-
"Ahhhh, I see- it's a motorcoach.
So that means it looks like a Greyhound bus inside..."
and snicker as I walk away.

According to the California vehicle code, a trailer is something designated to haul persons or property whereas a trailercoach is designated for habitation. Who cares what it is called as long as we have fun in them.

If the guy thought about the air lines he wouldn't have been so quick to point out he had a "coach" as coach is the lesser class on an aircract..

Maybe my wife's terminoligy is the most politically correct . . . she calls everything an "RV!" Doesn't matter how big it is, whether it has an engine, how many axles, whatever. Works for me (and apparently iRV2.com, too).

This "motorcoach" guy just proves you can be most anywhere and have your thumb up . . . somewhere!

To; Ironhorses.

Quite a disscusion!

Motorhome or Motor Coach, to some that spend big bucks I guess COACH ,sounds better.

Perhaps we should all recall that STAGE COACHES, pulled by real horses came way before motors.

Call it what you want, but if it is'nt pulled by something like the stage coach was, should we call them something else. A rose is a rose etc..

Does it make a differencw???? Thanks AJBJRVERS

I use the term "sexmobile" and the wife uses "trailer".

I guess were not very compatable but have been married for 40 years and she has learned to "put up" with me.

When I had a fiver, the dealer plus any service people I talked to referred to it as a "coach". Now I have a Class A, and they still call it a "coach". I call it "The Bus".
