Gosh - it's so hard to know... and location has something to do with it as well. I know here in the Seattle area, prices tend to be higher than other areas in the country.... but I can tell you that we shopped for quite some time and found this to be a great deal for both this coach in it's hardly used condition and for the area.

Our Windsor has 10,000 miles on it, brand new tires and our purchase price was $104k out the door.

Good luck! Buying a coach is an exhausting ordeal full of second guesses, but I'm positive it's worth it! (I'll let you know after our first trip this weekend )

Love your rig! Seeing all of these beautiful coaches gives me a serious case of the wanna-be's!

Steve,

Not sure of your exact floor plan but on my coach I had the built in desk and I removed it and put in a queen sleeper sofa with the air mattress - sleeps very nice. I did have to shorten the cabinets where the dinette is by about 7" to get the queen sofa to fit and I got the narrowest one I could find. I have no regrets regarding the modifications. If needed, I can look up where i got the sofa and the model.

Gorgeous new rig! And only 10,000 miles on a 10- year old unit - you scored! Enjoy.

Congratulations! Windsors are great coaches! Not to be a fuddy-dud but be sure to check for the ISL wrist pin problem that was found in the 2006 models. Better safe than sorry.

Oh yes, my husband knew all about this while we were shopping and he was sure to check it out before signing on the dotted line. Also - we were very surprised how many dealers/sellers weren't even aware of this recall! We're in the clear with this issue. Not a fuddy duddy at all, I appreciate the heads up. Thanks for the congrats!
