Good vibes sent your way Mr.D.

I've been drooling over these for a while now and have just about convinced myself that in a few years we will have one.

Only niggle that I'm not sure about is maintenance costs. Does anyone have real world costs of maintenance?

I know some of the fancy computer controlled doodads inside can be expensive if they take a dump but what I'm more interested in for the moment is the basic engine and chassis stuff and if there is anything extra on the bus (Prevost) platforms to mess with.

Anyone?

I went to the RV show in Phoenix Friday after work and walked down pusher row, after walking through the 4th or 5th 310k Phaeton I had to leave. That is so out of my league I don't even want to look at them anymore, until the show comes around again in a few months. LOL
I did the same thing a few weeks ago in San Diego. Fell in love with a few and one i even test drove, Tour. I don't know why I do this. We have had 3 coaches in 7 years and the last one I bought, told the DW. this is our last coach. LOL

I don't think it would be all that much more. You have a lot of computer controlled doodads in your car that could go bad to. I would think the Prevost platform would be much more robust than a regular RV after all they are driven as busses years.
