Ughhhh, if this happens, I would prefer a custom build, just need an apartment like this one https://www.avenue-south-residence.com.sg , because I am that kind of man that want to make everything by myself in my home. Buy and arrange the things the way I want. My wife is proud with me, because I am awesome

I would defiantly have a showhauler built. I would start with a vovo chassis and tune it up to 800hp. then it would be at least 3 slides with a 38' box.

Years ago the late wife and I ordered a Dutch Star and decided that even if we won the lottery we wouldn't buy anything fancier.
But then I talked her into this.

Like Newmar myself if had the $$ would get a 4311 model with few things different from stock, like a jetted walk through tube and such,
Need the lift for mobility scooter and room to store it[ maybe underneath] as cousin is in wheelchair and would like to travel to

You'd better study up on how much it takes to maintain and operate a jet. Buying it is the easy part.

Off the shelf or custom build?



Do you want it NOW, of later?


Go!
I still wouldn't buy new, so in this case, probably a used Prevost...

If money were no object it would be a custom showhauler or haulmark build. Something in a class 8 super C. Peterbilt or Kenworth chassis, Cummins x15 with Allison TC10 transmission.

Not a jet just a twin turbo prop. As you said buying is the easy part just like MHS, Boats the more it cost the more it takes to maintain.

Guess I'm different. We like what we have and no desire to have something else. If I won the big one, I would have more fun paying off my kids debts and giving most of it away anonymously to people that need a helping hand.
