If my memory is clear, the FLA state said our 42' Monaco Executive with a Tag Axle was considered a "coach" rather than a motorhome, and consequently we saved one of the state's fees, since it was considered more of a "home" with the tag axle...I didn't argue, and saved around $200 when buying my tags and registering the title in FL.

I've since called it a coach...

Somehow I just can't call our TT or old Class-C a coach. Local people call them all "rigs" or simply "RVs". Of course we have the "roach coaches" here but you don't want to buy food from them unless you're starving. When I think of the the word "coach," that's what I think of.... not expensive MHs.

Some people I've run into call the inside of all RVs "cabins." As in "the cabin is 24' but the RV is 28' overall." I've also heard both Class A and Class Cs called "coaches". There may be some regional differences in what they're called.

I've had a few 5th wheel owners work the price of their rigs into the conversation. I have no idea why people do this. Is it to impress? Just conversation? Do they think people care? What are we to reply to them? So far no Class-A owners have done this but then I found they're more likely, for some reason, to keep to themselves in the CGs, though we have run into a few friendly ones.

When I bought this Travel Supreme from the previous owner, who was a very very wealthy retired real estate agent I kept calling it a camper, one day he told me I had to stop calling it a camper. He said "its not a camper, it's a coach". I think it's when your RV becomes a status symbol it becomes a coach.

Yep, it's another "look at me and what I have moment". Some people live to brag about what they own. There is a BIG difference between being Proud of what you own and rubbing it in a persons face. It turns me off quickly. I normally just say "that's nice" and ease my way out of the conversation.


Happy Coaching I mean Camping...

Thanks for great viewpoints (and quite a few chuckles) through the thread. We're currently in a 28'TT and looking to upgrade to a 40' ClassA (insert your desired nomenclature here) in a year or so.

Trying to learn all I can before I make an

BINGO!

Edited to add, I come from RV country and if it's not a Marathon (paid for, and most of them are corporate expensed) I'm not all that impressed. Sorry. Paid for being another key. There are a lot of foreclosed high end motorhomes out there.
