We have a 98 Dutch Star that we LOVE. Its only got 26,000 miles on it and spent its life stored inside. We found it in a small town and it had been stored for 6 years. For the cost of changing fluids and paying for an inspection we saved thousands on what is practically new. The year doesn't matter as much as how much its been used and how you feel when you see it.... You will know.....

I agree with those who speak for older coaches. We have a 1999 Discovery, 36T. We enjoy the size which is big enough for us, but still fits into lots of state and national parks. Yes, we have had to do alot of maintenance:fulids, filters, and new a/c comperssor. Just finished repainting the front end of the coach plus three panels for a scratch from a mail box(my error). 85,000 miles. We plan a tour of the western states this fall and winter. Our Discovery fits us. We love it. Look for what fits you.

2001 Newmar

Bought a 2001 Newmar Mountain Aire DP ( MobileMe Gallery ) last year knowing full well that I'd be replacing/updating fridge, shades, ball joints, TVs, etc., etc.

However, since my house has depreciated faster than my RV, I don't feel all that bad.

Billieg, I laughed out loud when I came across this entry! You have several earlier entries, all signed with your byline that is famous (to me anyway!). Too bad it was only you that was happy with the older coach ...but like they say, if momma ain't happy, nobody is happy

She hasn't got me the mask yet and we are leaving in 30 minutes so maybe she forgot about it? Na, we will be looking at coaches all the way to NY...

Another vote for serious consideration of older, high end coaches that have gone through most of their depreciation.

Our 1998 American Eagle has been trouble free for 2.5 years and 20K miles of ownership. These units were the flagship of the Fleetwood line in 98 and it shows.

Still get asked by non-DP folks if it is new!

Well looked after top quality DP's (Country Coach, Foretravel, American Coach, Beaver etc,) are well worth a look.

We just purchased a 1998 country coach with a slide. It's an update from our 1993 foretravel without a slide. Love them both. Quality is quality..... No matter how old. I'm older than dirt and I'm quality....lol
