I think I would like to try a Prevost with a Marathon conversion from Coburg, OR. They seem to have a pretty good eye for detail and fit and finish.

Then I would install a webcam at 128 rainbow drive and watch all the people show up with their hand out.

If I won the lottery... something i NEVER think about lol... seriously, I am going to win tonight, I have the Powerball ticket!

I think if I won 20M+ Net after taxes... I could bring myself to spend 1M range on a coach. I would go full time and see all there is to see in style. I'm a huge car nut so the rest would be some land, a small house and a very, very large garage for my toys and cars lol.

Not sure 1M would get a Prevost, but love the Newmar King Aire, would defiantly have all the bells, so customized to the hilt.

It would be an old school bus conversion like a Wanderlodge. I am also quite fond of older Foretravel, bluebird and Barth. Then there are the entertainer style rigs with lounges and private rooms. Those are pretty cool too.

The new fancy shiny rigs make me feel uneasy for some reason. Not that they are too nice because Foretravel makes one beautiful rig. I think its the "casino" styling I don't care for. Who knows.

As far as other options. I really really want the option where the back opens up and you have a patio. Saw some with sliding doors and side decks. Those were gassers most likely. I realize I can have that in a 5th wheel. Would rather have it in a MH.

A used Prevost or Newell....or an Allegro Bus if I could not find the previous! And it would definitely depend on the amount won, if only a million then we'd be in a Bus!

Keep what we have,
It still impresses us with it's superior qualities over the mass produced coaches..
Do a few updates (swap out the tag axle dump and upgrade with a tag axle lift)
Upgrade the remaining lights to LED (including headlights & tail lights)
Freshen up the flooring.
Continue to live below our means & keeping an "out of sight/out of mind" media profile..
Invest the remaining winnings....
Go fishing

If I won a huge powerball a custom gasser would probably do all I wanted. ;-)

Win the lotto...Would take my American Eagle and $200K to a conversion shop and let them redo/upgrade the interior. Then a complete chassis inspection/service by Spartan, new tires, and hit the road!
Full time and loving it!

Believe it or not, I would order mine from Winnebago. I don't want one that I cannot get service on throughout the country. I would only order it because I would want to pick the colors and things.
I enjoy working on things and finding out how they work and adding things to make it our own.
Beside with that kind of win we would most likely trade it in about 5 years anyway.

and with that kind of money...
why not a second identical coach...
if you have an enemy, they wouldn't know which you were in.
if there is a breakdown, you just change to alternate.

yee hah... i need to go buy that ticket... feeling blessed!
