We're talking true land yacht here, that can be renovated forever, if necessary.
I totally agree. Could not be happier with my "tank".

When I was looking, I focused on Newmar, country Coach, Tiffin and Winnebago. I purchased a Newmar and I have been very pleased with how the coach was built and the customer support Newmar provides.

I know you said DP, but since you are a dirt track man and want to go places that others may not want to go, consider a used Seneca.

Solid diesel performance with the engine in a location that is totally easy to work on and maintain without crawling under the bed in a pusher.

The huge mass up front gives good protection in case of front end crash. May not be your cup of tea, but this thing is a beast.

Smile Newbies looking and learning!

We are looking for our first RV - we originally liked used 2011-12 FR Georgetown 374TS; liked floorplan, size and budget; could have got one for about 50K. However, saw quality problems especially with peeling furniture and have decided we would be better off with a quality Diesel Pusher. Our ideal wish list is 50-90K budget, King bed, free-standing dinette not booth, recliner, washer-dryer, and dark wood cabinets. Getting a good deal is important because we are not quite 100% sure about RVing so we could sell in a year. That's one reason we were first looking at gas with low miles so the initial investment would be less. Locally we are looking at a 2005 Fleetwood Expedition 37U but doesn't have King or W/D. On PPLmotorhomes I see a 2006 Beaver Monterey Laguna by Monaco that looks good with everything we want but we are trying to find out if that is a "recommended" quality model, especially before driving all the way from Florida to Houston. Looked at some Dutch Stars a little above our budget but haven't seen one with all the boxes checked yet. We would welcome any recommendations!

If you drop the king bed requirement your search will really open up. You shouldn't have any issue finding something from Newmar, Travel Supreme, Country Coach, Monaco, etc. in that price range if you aren't hung up on the king bed. Push you search back to about 2000-2005.

There are a myriad of choices, it can be bewildering. Decide on your must haves.

For the DW and I we start with three things. Air leveling, tag axle and AquaHot.
This thins the herd considerable. Any Coach that has those will well built. Then it it just a matter of floor plan and mechanical condition.

As mentioned earlier, the Dynasty is a great Coach. I wish I could take credit for being smart, but ours was first pitch home run, our first Class A. Ideally it would be 43', tag axle with ISM. But now I'm nit picking.
