Win the Lottery, new DP. Which one? Why?

If you won the lottery, and were going to purchase a DP, what would you purchase?


Off the shelf or custom build?



Do you want it NOW, of later?


Go!

Foretravel IH-45 or Newell. Both custom built to the customer's preferences.

could you just give us a budget.

100 miles away from me is a guy who won about 85 million after taxes.
his budget might be ?2 million ? or more... hmm adding some security features and why not a final of 3 million.

nearby, an associate won 1 million.
associates finances were strong already. so maybe he'd feel comfortable spending half of his winnings ? 500,000.
in his case... he went to the lake and bought a 250k property and promptly spent another 250k on it.

so, can you give us a budget.
without one, i'd be spending a big wad having an awesome coach upgraded with severe use weaponry! and defensive capabilities...

I won 7 bucks on the lottery, back when I was foolish enough to try.
Bought 6 more tickets and a pack of gum.
If I had won BIG, I would keep my Monaco, have it painted, and take more sea cruises.

You will need a good one to keep moving to keep out of touch with all of the hucksters who are trying to get a piece of your pie. I would opt for a Newmar or American coach with a full slide. Once you have a full slide it's tough to look at anything else.

Except that I would buy it from the owner of one that's about to be completed (custom build),....yeah make him an offer he can't refuse. Yeah, use the money to go to the front of the line, so to speak.

It really depends on how much I won. In the moderately expensive class, I would pick a Renegade. The interior construction tends to be more house like, and much more solid. In the super high end, I'd probably look at Foretravel.


Either way would probably require a custom build. I do not like the modern high end styles. The woodwork shows off exotic woods, but that means a lot of weird colors. I tend to be an Oak kind of guy.

Assuming a mega size win, after getting a house in Telluride and the north shore of Kauai on Hanalei Bay, I'd just lease a Prevost, etc. (with a driver of course) or charter a yacht (crewed of course) for any sort of travel where there is no Ritz Carlton or other "acceptable accommodations". "Own" an RV or yacht, you've got to be kidding......

On the other hand, I'd probably want a Showhauler to pull my race / track car; or if I won a bit less, and still wanted an "RV" I think I'd still go for a Showhauler, not a DP.
