Plus, I didn't tell you take my word. I told to not be dazzled be the Foretravel name, go look at it in person with same eye you look at a Newmar.

You've made it clear you're extra critical of Newmar, so I recommend you look at all with that same eye. Heck, after you look at the Realm walk past the IH45 and down to the Entegras to compare fit and finish. Still way above the fit and finish of the Realm. Just well below the price point of coaches you started talking about.

It's your money, spend it how you want.

You asked an opinion about a specific model of coach, I gave you one. How many Realm owners have you talked to?

For your money, I think you would be far happier in a Nimbus. Way better built coach.
I appreciate your input and I will take that trip to Texas and may wind up taking the whole weekend looking. ty...

I was just looking at MSRVs website, it looks like they have some 16s coming in. I hope Foretravel has a bit more say in them and brings the coach up to it's potential. There is just not enough competition at that dollar amount.

I know I've been tough on that coach, but I hold Foretravel in very high regards. I've loved their product since the first time I laid eyes on a Grand Villa as a kid.

It wasn't an all bad coach, I was just caught off guard by the obvious lack of attention to details.

Foretravel has (in my opinion) the coolest slides in the industry and now you can get them for under a million bucks. Sweet! I know HWH makes the slides, just like on Newell and Prevost conversions. But the coach builder says how they look and Foretravel has the look. There movement was smooth and fast, along with the drop floor when in, beautiful.

Shower? The Realm doesn't just have a shower, no sir, it has a traveling rain room. There is enough space in there for a small family and their pop up.

The basement storage was massive and not overly cluttered with random items. A look around the industry will clarify what I mean. Just, please, put a cover over the electrical board. A lawn chair could do some real damage, fast.

I was surprised to see it had the Aqua Hot 450D instead of the 600D, however the 450D will still provide excellent heat and hot water.
