Stepped it up a notch

Greetings fellow RV'rs
The DW and I pulled the trigger and stepped up from a class C to a Holiday Rambler Navigator. We spent about 6 months prepping for this purchase. We had a list of must haves and nice to haves. Must haves for me were things like a side radiator. Enough power to pull the toad and a tag axle. DW had a list for the inside. After looking at a few thousand coaches we decided on Holiday Rambler or Monaco coaches. Fit and finish was big on the list after owning a gulf stream class C, and the Holiday Rambler and Monaco lines had what we were looking for. We started hunting and found our new addition in Texas. It took us about a month to get everything in order and then we drove the class C to Texas and the Navigator home.
Funny thing, it cost more to drive the class C to Texas, than it did to drive the Navigator (with a 500 Cummins) home. Needless to say we are in love with our coach....

Gorgeous ... congratulations and, for what it's worth, that Coach is on my current "short list" of Coaches I would certainly consider today. I hope you have a ball with it.

Wanna adopt me!?

That's one nice set of wheels! If you don't mind my asking, where in TX did you find this? Just curious.

Safe Travels!

Congratulations!!! GREAT Coach choice, my DW and I moved up to the same coach a few years back and have enjoyed it ever since. It sure is nice to have the awesome ride and all that power. All the best with the coach. If you have questions on service and enhancements I have done a number, all to make it better and I will share my experiences.

we worked with Legacy Coach in Rockwall Texas. Brandon and Kalee were wonderful. We not only got a new coach, but have some new friends too.
