Opinions on Coachman Mirada Class A

We are seriously considering upgrading to a 2011 Coachman Mirada 34Bunk House. Was wondering if anyone on the forum has experience with Coachman Class A's the past few years?

We love the looks of the layout but would like to hear rel world opinions on the quality, layout, etc.

We had a 2003 and the only thing we really didn't like was the kitchen slide. You hit you head on the cabinets if you were not careful at the sink . On the one we had, the slide had included the sink and over head cabinets, so they were lower than normal.
Other than that one thing we really like the unit.

I used to have a 2007 Mirada. We loved it ! Never had any problems.......would have kept it, but I was looking for a larger DP. I would certainly recommend it.

We have a 2010 Mirada 35dfs which we purchased in April 2010.

DW had a larger oven installed and a stacked washer & dryer (hook-ups were already there). I had a steering stabilizer and rear track bar installed before we even took delivery.

DW wants to be able to wash and dry at her convenience and bake something larger than a 9"x9" pan of brownies.

I'm very familiar with the F53 chassis and its handling problems when the unit is over 30'. Our unit is printed as a 35 footer, however, measured from bumper to bumper it's 37'.

We upgraded from a 07' four winds C to an 08' HR Neptune. We traded the HR for the 2010 Mirada because its lighter, more room, 1 & 1/2 baths and a whole lot more maneuverable. I like the V10 and the 5 speed transmission.

DW loves the interior layout. The kitchen area is not a slide annnnd, she loves the rear bath. We're having a lot of fun with it with no problems as of yet.

I've been retired 9yrs & DW is retiring this July and then, WE ARE GONE $5.00+ gas or not

Whatever you purchase, enjoy it. That's what it's all about......

We bought a 2011 Coachman Mirada 34BH in January and have been very happy with it. We had a few minor issues on our inaugural shake down trip which were solved in one visit to the service department at our dealer.

The bunks, and TV's, are a favorite of our grandkids and when they are not with us the space is usable as a dressing area to the bedroom and bathroom.

The slide in the living dining area is more than adequate. We have had 4 adults and 3 kids in the space and never felt cramped. The bunk and bed room slide is adequate.
