You'd get that from me too, but thats just because thats not my area of expertise. I'm a driver... the technical stuff is for my pit crew. Man do I love & appreciate my pit crew!

To each his own...
My current top of the line, would like to have is a Voltage 3310. If I win the lottery a Voltage 3310, now at that point I might not care as much about warranty on the TV and sup it up for another 100hp or so or get a M2 (hey my money). But myself I would be afraid to break something in a 400k unit, and having DW keep it clean would get me shot.... again to each his/her own.

Cooke, if you could afford a $400k rig, you could afford a maid to come in and clean it. Duh!

This weekend we'll be racing our vintage cars at Cal Speedway. In our particular group, there will be our Journey, a Winnebago C Class, a "National" A class, a Foretravel, two Beavers, a Van Hool, and a Prevost. I think all but the National are fully paid for, and none of us really cares all that much about fuel mileage. We simply fill it up when it runs low. We also pay $9.75/gallon for race gas... The Van Hool was probably the most expensive, I'm guessing around $1.3M. The Prevost conversion around $1.1M, then down to the production coaches; Bob's Foretravel, my Journey, the Beaver guys, etc... Add in a race trailer, several of us have nice stacker trailers each holding two or three race cars. Then fill with your vintage race car(s) of choice. Figure between $20k-300k for that. I usually take a spare car as well, because I race Triumph's...

All that to say, nobody I know considers themselves better for having a more expensive coach, and none of us consider ourselves envious of the guys with the high end coaches. (I wouldn't call a $400k coach a high end, more of a mid-level coach) We even have a few folks who tent camp at the track, and they hang out just the same with the rest of us. They do tend to smell a bit worse though...

If your going to travel, might as well travel in style...

I hear ya.

I don't worry about gas mileage either. I do check it just so I can get some sympathy at the campfire, but it won't stop me from going anywhere/anytime I want.

In those million $ Prevosts I bet there is a copy of the "Trailer Life" Directory.

I guess my short answer should have been" "no, not if I had one. But I wouldn't look down to those with cheaper rigs".

I haven't owned a pricey unit, but have camped in them, as a friend of mine was a dealer. We stayed in a new full load/customized Essex for a wknd (can't recall list price, but it's like $700k CDN???), and we got some stares. Ppl assumed I was a drug dealer, because I am younger. Even with my own MH, they think that :P


and to those that think this is a worthless thread, come on, how mature are you??....grow up and let ppl voice their opinions. It's obviously a legitimate topic for some.

Remember those guys that insisted their teacher give them homework in grade school?? Those are the same guys you find complaining about threads like this :P

Its just not fair that some have a Prevost and I have an entry level class A! I'll have to call the government to make things more fair. Seriously, why can't those who can afford luxury have it? Its their money.

I certainly do not own a expensive envious rig, it's quite the opposite, I'm never jealous of anyone with beautiful luxurious rigs, they earned it and it's what they want, I would however in an instant trade my class a for a nice travel trailer, I don't travel, so a trailer would be fine for me. Id add what things I want to make it how I want it and keep it for years of paid for enjoyment, people are people, in my eyes all are equal, and to those who don't share that view, your missing out! A friend who has since passed always lived by the philosophy, "there is no such thing as strangers, just friends I have not met yet"

We have looked at trading up to a 40’ + Class A – full body paint, four slides, nicer than a “New York apartment” and wondered (THIS IS SPECIFICALLY FOR THOSE WHO OWN RIGS IN THE $400,000 RANGE AND UP): Have you ever felt odd, out of place, looked at with a jaundice eye in campgrounds while others parked around you looked/stared in envy? Has this ever bothered or disturbed you – made you feel uncomfortable?

Just curious. Other than being THRILLED that you are the one with the FANTASTIC rig, has it crossed your mind and wondered if other felt the same way? Has it negatively affected you?
No

I'm with you! Way too ornate and fancy.

As far as I'm concerned the mirrors belong on the bedroom ceiling not the main salon where all the people can see your acrobatics through the front windshield!

OOPS! Did I say that out loud?
