Rtmunson - Wow, nice rig. What year? And how much out the door? In DP looks like tag axle is the way to go. On the highway they seem to drive 70 - 72 while non tag axle's drive 65 while gassers drive 62 on average.

LOL!
Maybe that is a factor of those with a tag axle have more money to burn that extra fuel going 70!
I prefer going 62 and getting 12 MPG.

Tuffr2, we would never buy a new unit. So a great 2006-2008 40 ft DP would be in th price range

Check out Demartini RV. They have an nice website with a lot of 2004 thru 2006 DP's that look nice. Actually they have the best web site.

I am seeing a variety of rigs that might work for you guys around that 100k mark.

Good luck and Happy New Year!

Shopping around with $100k cash in your pocket is half the fun. Some of the newer rigs are just as nice as the high end older ones....because after all, motorhomes have come a long way. What used to be considered posh luxuries are now standard features. If it were me, I'd look at anything Newmar. If you play your cards right, $100k could put you into a nice Dutchstar. Another thing to keep in mind is service. It's nice to have a servicing dealer in your area. I wouldn't buy a CAT powered rig, because the nearest CAT authorized shop is 2hrs away. I would pass 3 Cummins dealers along the way.

But if maintenance costs aren't really an issue, the sky is the limit. $100k can get you into a Prevost. Heck, friends of ours scored a gorgeous 97 Prevost conversion for under $70K (that originally retailed for $700k new). And let me tell you, not many new middle-range coaches compare to it.
