Should I buy 2012 American Coach 42W

I am about to bull the trigger on a 2012 American Coach Revolution 42W. Any thoughts on this coach would be appreciated.

Lord knows it would be an upgrade from my REV. 2012 would be the perfect "zone" for me. Lightly used with the issues shaken out. If it is the floorplan you want and a great deal, ENJOY! It is a great coach no doubt.

I LOVE my revolution ;-) What kind of deal are you getting and what is condition? If answer is "great and Great", then off you go!

We compared the '12 Tradition to the '12 Revolution. We found the Tradition to have the Aqua-Hot and airleveling as standard. The dash is very different, too. Heated floors were also available. The $ difference was about 100k new. The Revolution is a beautiful Coach and it shares many things with the Tradition. Is this a left over new or used?

AC is top notch for service, both in Decatur and on the phone. If you like the floor plan, do it.

We have owned a 2011 42W for over three years now, and live in it full time. It's an excellent choice.
