Would you give me this number please. This 24/7 service is touted on their site, on my paperwork and yet I have not been able to obtain this number. The closest I have is a number where you ca leave a voicemail. I have yet to have a call returned. I also have not received responses to email.

Press 4 for emergency service if "your motorhome is completely down" and it's after hours. I've done this twice, once for a snarled awning and another time for a small electrical problem I should have found on my own.

In both cases, my call was handled promptly with care and by knowledgeable folks who had access to all the manuals and schematics.

I hope it works out for you.

Homeless is 100% correct!

Purchase a used 220K coach with 20K on the odometer for 90K!

SMART shopping!

Just to throw another possibility by the group - this unit just came in to Brambillas in Minnesota - a single owner unit. It lacks the full side slide (but then again I am partial to the 4-slide units). My wife and I are currently very satisfied with our 36' DP, but we are "on the lookout" for a bigger unit when our life conditions allow it. I have walked through this coach, and I am impressed that it is immaculate! (in fact, I hope my wife takes a look at it tomorrow, just to get in impression of "what could be had". The low mileage does have me somewhat concerned (from the diesel perspective), but the owner has apparently taken extremely good care of it, and it has been stored indoors. Your mileage may vary ... but if we were 2-3 years down the road, I would be taking a very, very close look at this coach.
Cheers!

What I've begun to notice in my searches is that there are a lot of nice buses in the 160k to 199k range. I mean heck, if 250 is my max, why should I have to spend it all.

Just like a house! If your "approved" for a 250K home that does not mean go out & drop 250K on a house.
You can find some real gems out their for fantastic prices!

My only advice is make sure you're getting what you want. I've met a lot people that are on their 3-4th coach that they're unhappy in.

They always insist I'm a fool for ordering exactly what I wanted.

We'll keep this coach for 10+ years, I'm betting I'll get my monies worth.

If we could have found what we wanted in a used we would have happily bought it, but it wasn't out there. We looked for 2 years.

We bought our one year old 2012 Tour 42QD last year for less than that. 7K miles with all options. I think that model has everything you are looking for.

The vehicle had been purchased new from the dealer by a man who passed away. His widow sold it back to the dealer. We had full service and warranty history.

They are out there - just keep looking.

thanks for all of the encouragment, and yep I do like the tour floorplans.

I think my next big decision is do I want to go 40 and longer, or 40 and shorter.

I must admit, the idea of something shorter is appealing in some ways.
