In Dec of this year we sold our 3 slide, 2005 Allegro Bus that we bought new in 2005. We started out at $135K and actually ended up selling it for $120K. It had 28k miles on the 400hp Cummins and the coach was absolutely perfect inside and out. $145 for the Monaco is too much money, I think the folks that own it will have it for a very long time without a willingness to negotiate that high price down to a reasonable level. You did well to pass on it in todays economic environment as there's a lot of nice coaches for sale out there at much more reasonable prices.

Oh My....

This is just a great opportunity to tell you that women are great drivers...!!!! LOL!!!! Get behind the wheel honey. I was a white knuckle passenger and then I took over the driving duties and I LOVE IT!!!! Hubby is disabled and can rest while I drive and honestly, i feel so empowered when I drive our 40 footer. At the very least, you should know how to drive the rig in case you need to in an emergency, but honestly...if you can get used to it slowly, taking a couple of hours at a time on the highway, you will get the hang of it. I started that way. Hubby got it out of the city and then pulled over at a rest area to allow me to drive it on the big highway...

Remember to look far ahead on the road. Pick a spot and focus on it and then stay in that "zone". It is difficult to explain it to you without being beside you but that is what a veteran driver told me to do. You do not want to be watching the road constantly under your wheels. You want to focus your eyes ahead of you and keep the big bus on a path that feels right...

I have heard that some new drivers place a "dot" on their windshield that lines up with the dotted lines on the highway to keep the coach in the right lane. I have an imaginary "dot" but it works for me....

Good luck and please try to drive it. It really is fun...!!!
