I'd have to go along with Muncie 6spd. Newell Coach would be my first choice too. Excellent quality and have been building coaches for quite a while. dcoke

I think I'd just add it to my retirement account and increase the distribution just enough so we could eat out a couple of more times each month.

Yes, it is all about the food!

I'd race it until it was all gone. LoL

We have a saying, how fast can you afford to go? That'd go pretty fast, pretty fast.

I'd avoid all of the production assembly line builders and have Bill Rex build me a totally "custom" Rexhall on a Spartan K3', Cummins ISX, Allison 4000.....the interior floor plan would exactly to my liking, the appliances, cabinets, wood finishing, fabrics, etc, would all be custom and to our specs.

That's my 500K coach.......but I agree with many others that feel 500K for a MH is a foolish waste of money. When it is all said and done, you're committing to life in a 300-400 sq. ft. tin box. This is a great experience and brings with it many memories....but....I don't want to .....nor plan to ....live like this for more than a couple of years. There are a zillion fantastic used DP out there between 100-200K that are every bit as comfortable and well equipped as anything costing 500K...JMHO.

If you had $500k available what would you buy?

Because it did not state that I had to buy an RV….

If I had 500k to spend I would spend it on the following:

1) First I’d do everything needed to buy and put up two 10kW solar power set ups under the MICRO – FIT Program in Ontario, before it is too late, and place them on our property. All funds generated, less maintenance expenses only, from one of the set ups will be donated to Hospice in our area and the same for the other set up all its income, less maintenance expenses only, will be donated to Habitat for Humanity in our area. BTW – FYI - The Micro Fit Program has a contract that generates income for 20 years. (My initial investment will benefit two of my favorite charities for years to come and it is willable too. It is better than nothing and more than a small yearly mount we can currently give.)

2) I’d build the garage I have always wanted.

3) I would buy and place one more 10kW solar power set up on the new garage I built. I could then use the funds generated from this set up over the next 20 years to help pay for some R&D of ideas and projects I’ve always wanted to do.

4) I would use the remaining funds to restore our Ultravan Collection – much sooner than later. And if any is left over I use it to travel in these coaches.

Ultravan #248 being delivered spring of 2008.


Ultravan #256 being delivered summer of 2008.
It sat 28 years prior to us purchasing it.
I was blessed to get this one back on the road within one year of owning it.
I removed the drive-train out of UV256, in OCT this year, to use it on UV362.


Ultravan #362 on left and #512 on right being delivered Nov. 14th 2012.


UV362 left and UV512 right just after they were unloaded, on Nov 14th, from a 48ft tractor trailer flatbed.
UV362 is our nicest coach to date.


Sadly all of them have to sit outside until the garage is built.


We are much closer to our plans/goal of having a small Ultravan Museum.

Probably a condo in Hawaii and a farmhouse in southern France.

Sweet!

How much would you take for the little square one with the rust-brown highlights in among those round-faced puppies?
