Very sorry for your loss. We lost my mother 2 weeks ago so I know what you are going through.

Any of the major manufacturers could supply something like that. Appears you want a newer coach with the all electric requirement. I really like the Tiffin Allegro Bus. You can get these in 40 foot. These are somewhat comparable to the American Eagle.

First let me express my condolences for your loss. I admire that your adventure spirit has not been quelled after such a life changing event. So...

How about a Phaeton. All electric standard, heated floor option, AquaHot standard, bath and a half, dish washer, stacked washer/dryer. Comes in 40 foot and if your feeling frisky it also comes in a 42 foot tag axle.

Sorry for your loss. If you are looking new, I would think about any coach company can build what you want. I don't have much to offer except for a dealer recommendation, Tom Johnson in Marion, NC.

Good luck on your search.

To be honest I am not a big Phaeton Fan. I think they are an Allegro Bus wannabe with out all of the better features but a cheaper price.

To the OP check out the Allegro Bus I am not sure what sizes are available now. I have a 2005 38ft with two slides. The Allegro bus has Independent Front Suspension which makes for a nice ride and easy drive. My sympathies for your loss and my admiration that you are going to continue to enjoy RVing.

Hi Jafundy,
Please accept my condolences on the loss of your husband. Consider a Newmar coach they come in quite a variety of sizes and floor plans. Newmar will customize a floor plan to suit your needs. Newmar is at Luxury Motorhomes, RVs, and More | Newmar All the items mentioned, in your OP, are available on most all Newmar DPs.

I too would like to offer my condolences. My question is, if you've driven the Eagle, there's not much difference from a 40 footer of any brand. The biggest mistake I've seen people make is buying what they think at the time is a large coach, only to figure out later that a couple feet doesn't really matter after they get some experience under their belt. But it really doesn't matter what I think, it all comes down to what you're comfortable with. Good luck in whatever you choose.

If you can live without a dishwasher and all electric look at some older Country Coaches or Foretravels.

Very sorry for your loss !

I agree with Ramets. If the Eagle has a tag, getting a 36-40 foot without a tag will make it MORE DIFFICULT to drive. Maybe think about one of the RV driving schools to improve your comfort level with your current coach.
