Looking for suggestions for 32-36ft coaches


I'm looking for suggestions for smaller Class A's. My partner and I are preparing to go full-time within the next 8 months, and we're trying to come up with a short list of Gas and Diesel coaches to focus our shopping efforts. We are previous owners of a 1998 Safari Trek 2830, and are somewhat spoiled by the quality and agility of that little 29' coach. Although we are leaning heavily toward getting another Trek (2002-2004), we want to consider other coaches as well.

I would appreciate your comments and advice... Here are the most important factors:
  • Price range up to $40,000
  • 1998 or newer
  • Superior quality of interior materials
  • Length: 32-36ft
  • Slides: 1-2
  • At least 80 gallon fresh water capacity
  • Tow rating: at least 4000 lbs
  • CCC: at least 2500 lbs
  • Generous on-board storage
  • Generous basement storage
  • Gas: Prefer Workhorse/Chevy
  • Diesel: Prefer Cummins
  • Reliable, with few known issues
Thank you!

Send me a PM. We're considering selling our 02 Georgetown this spring. It's a 32-footer, two slides, new Dometic fridge last June, new Toy tires in July 2010. It has a couple of minor body/paint blemishes that I'll get fixed and the generator is currently in-op. I'll be getting that fixed also.

It's on the Ford F53 chassis with the V-10 engine. We bought from the original owners and it's been very well looked after.

The best money I spent when buying two used motorhomes was purchashing the RV Consumer Group Guide. Salesman and private owners often do not tell all.
