Do Prevost owners dry camp? Hopefully they don't buy million dollar RVs then park at Walmarts.

I discarded the idea of a 10 year old Prevost or Newell, because while the chassis and engine are good for a million miles, you still need to deal with a 10 year old AC, generators, pipes, old wiring, etc. Unless you are a good handyman, make sure you get a good inspection.

Any info would be appreciated!

The Royal coaches were converted by the old Monaco Coach Corp. Monaco is currently owned by ASV who also owns American Coach and Fleetwood.

You may dry-camp with an all-electric coach if you spend the required money to install a correctly-sized solar system. I know a couple with a 2003 Newell doing that now.
No need to shy away from an older coach, just be sure to buy an extended service contract.
