We have been happy with each of our steps to something larger. We currently have the one that suits our needs the best so far. With that said ...... while driving home from NY yesterday .... the wife and I were talking, the next one will still be from the same manufacture but hopefully will have "Aire" at the end!!!!

I would replace with another Coach on the UFO chassis. The new Winne Destination 39J with bunk beds would be high on the list.

I would get one that everything worked on and required no maintenance. It would be nice if had the following features.

All bay doors either open sideways or all the way up so we would not have to bend.
An auto hookup button for water, sewer and electric.
An auto finder for parks with great level concrete sites and only 50 amp hookups.
Came with all of the after market features already installed and working.
One that would take itself in and wait all day for minor service work.
Would appreciate in value rather than depreciate.
Would come with a boy/girl to do all the things my DW or I do not want to do.
An auto wash/wax cycle.
Would come with a cattle prod that would activate when the service manager says "can't happen" and/or "never heard of that before".

Then again, what would be the fun in that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It would be a good excuse for me to upgrade to a fifth wheel. So come on & steal mine! Actually we enjoy the heck out of our TT but would enjoy an upgrade too.

We have a Newmar Baystar and are essentially happy with it but if I could do it again I would get a Tiffin of the same size (32ft) with the full linoleum floor. Easier to keep clean. The new ones have better TV's but I would stick with the Ford Chassis. I like it. I like my dealer and I like the factory support from Newmar. So I have no big reason to trade or sell.

I would upgrade to a DP. Something in the 34' range, either a Journey or Meridian if they offered the same or similar floorplan as we have now.

We have enjoyed all our rigs but as we trade we keep upgrading to a better rig. We will be picking up our new Cameo on the 26th. We chose the Cameo for the interior space that the full wall slide provides. This will be our retirement snow bird rig in 4 years.

keep the same length, but might try a Phaeton or a Bus. Would like to be able to watch TV w/o having to move a slide.
