Ours had about 110,000 miles when we bought it in 2008. It now has about 145,000 miles. We have repainted it outside and inside, renovated the inside with new flooring, furniture. It feels and drives like a new coach. We really, really like it.

Hondaman - Our coach had 85,000 miles on it when we bought it 3 years ago. It now has 105,000 miles. I would have preferred less miles, but we wanted the semi custom interior we got on this coach. The previous owner had basically driven it to NASCAR races so there was little use on the house.

We did a ton of research before buying this coach. I studied everything I could buy. I got the complete list of good and not so good coaches from the RVCG. I used to go to look at RV shows and dealer lots with a laptop to check out the specs of each. We ended up gravitating towards Country Coach because almost everyone who had one liked theirs. I also found that no matter which Country Coach I drove they all seemed to drive well. But there are lots of good coaches. You just have to find the one that fits you the best.

We bought "Hoppie" Dec. 31, 1998, new with only factory delivery miles on him, under 1,400 from Indiana to San Antonio, TX. He now has 62,000 miles. We love the floorplan....wish they made the same one now in gas or diesel...would buy it tomorrow.

Hoppie is a Fleetwood Bounder 34J, Ford V10. Have had no problems with him....love this guy, but looking seriously at a Thor Palazzo diesel and will give Hoppie to our son and his family.

2004 American Tradition, bought in late 2006 with 24k miles on it. Now have 65k miles. So 6 years and 41k miles so far for us, but the coach was essentially unused for one year of that, while my wife was getting cancer treatments. She is doing pretty well now, so we are "on the road again", though we ow spend more time in one place than before.
