Since I started this thread a few months ago, I thought I'd follow up!

We finally found a class-a coach in the price range that we wanted: A 2002 Alfa See-Ya for $39k.

Flew up to Flint, MI last week to pick it up, and drove it 700 miles home with no problems at all!

It's a bit of fixer-upper (first job: pulling out all the nasty, old carpet and putting in some nice laminate flooring), but it seems to be cared for. Has all the original manuals and drives great with 115k on the clock.

Here's a pic of it with the wife as we picked it up in Flint:



Anyway, we couldn't be happier - and so the odyssey begins!!!!

best,
t

I know that happy feeling so well. We picked up our pre-enjoyed Revolution a few months ago and I have not stopped smiling since. The Alfa is a great coach and we looked at them a few years ago, but were not really prepared to buy at that time.

Best of luck with your new coach and many happy and safe journeys.

Faith

Just as a thought, check out BestpreownedRV.com . That's where I bought mine and so far -so good. I'll give a full report someday in the future.

The two things that should mean the least when looking at an RV since they are so simple to add to your liking after. Unless you were kidding of course...

We bought a 2002 Winnebago Journey DL 36', 49k miles, loaded with virtually every option; $49,800
Makes the $34,000 I paid for my '99 gas Endeavor seem like too much for June of 2010 even though NADA on it was over 40 at the time.

Heck, NADA still puts it at 39K!

Smokin deal! Mine shares the headlights from the Ford Explorer the Alpha used, cheap to replace if needed!

Have you seen a 1998 Eagle that sold for $45,000 or more the past couple of years?

Not to hijack the thread but yes. A 1999 American Tradition DP that I was looking at for $78,000 sold last month.

And Congrats on the new coach! Looks great!

Have you looked at Bluebird Wanderlodge ?
Here is a site www.wanderlodgeownersgroup.com/forums
Try www.buybyebluebird.com for some examples.
Birds will take your trailer full of toys down the road with no problem. The all are setup to tow 10K from the factory. There are several "racers" on the forum.

Great looking RV. We looked at the Alfa and I love the look of em. But, it just came down to our decision to buy a Winnebago. Awesome and congrats!
