To dream to dream to dream. Let me invite everyone to the thread What motorhome would you buy for $100k. That's more realistic for my budget and your comments will help narrow my options. $500k would make my creditors sleep better at night.

Well, we didn't quite have $500,000 but we acted like we thought we did and bought an 2013 Ellipse 42GD. Since we got a discount, we have a little bit of the non-existing money left over. So we are trying to find a good piece of land that will serve as occasional parking spot when we are not out on the road. We can use the rest of the dream money for diesel. Smile.

First of all I'd figure out what the hell I'd want to use the coach for. Then I'd buy a used Foretravel or pre 2007 Country Coach. Use about 50k to tune it up to exactly what I wanted inside and out. Take the rest of the $$$ and invest it. Ok maybe put a good coach mechanic on a retainer and fly him and his tools to where I need him when I needed him.

Same here. Good bang for the buck and $150K left over seems good too.

We have the Tour's twin an Ellipse 42 GD. They not only LOOK good, they ARE great. Get an all-electric. The true induction stove is SUE-WHEAT! You can also get a "show deal" and get it for under 3 large and have $200K for "incidentals."

A gently used Dutchstar...and maybe a nice 71 Hemi 'Cuda to pull around behind it.

My wife and I have discussed what we'd do if we ever won the lottery (hard to do since we don't buy tickets). Decided we'd keep what we have and fund some charities then help a friend or two.

BTW: health is more important than wealth! My wife has been unable to work since late Sept. and they still don't know what's wrong. So far out insurance has paid over $60,000 in hosp bills and most of the Dr's bills. Don't know for how much longer she has a job or insurance.

We'd still of ended up going with a new Diplomat 43dft, for us it has more than we need, but the floorplan is almost perfect and by far the best on for our needs to go fulltiming in. Definitely would only use about 1/2 of the 500k but it's what works best for us

Yep!

On second thought, I probably wouldn't spend it all. Maybe bump up to a bit nicer rig, but that's it. I'd sell my own one, get a newer one, and save the other $425k+. Maybe build a new garage to keep it in, so that would be another $30k out of that.
