We need to get plates etc, and will go get it in March! I am excited and worried at the same. Time will tell.
Congrats on the new MH, you're gonna love your new Winnie! We love our '08 Itasca Navion.
The roads weren't too bad. We woke up to snow in our driveway here in Ma. and drove the 60 miles one way to Springfield to the show. But then I screwed up on the ride home and drove 140 miles back because I had forgotten and set my GPS to "avoid tolls" so it took us south
on Rt. 91 into Hartford when we should have gone East
on the Mass Pike which, of course, has tolls!!
Oh well, it was a Sunday and we go for rides on Sunday anyway so we made the best of it and grabbed dinner on the road.

We got a look at the Coachman Concord, which we liked. In years past they only had 1 on the floor and it was always sold and locked up. This year there were at least 3.
One other thing I noticed was that the sold units were still being shown, which was not the case in previous years. Maybe there were too many complaints. Also Camping World was there and they had a bunch of stuff.
I really like the Tiffin Allegro Breeze. They had a 32' model, which is too big for us, (we like to go to state and fed parks), but Tiffin makes a 28' model. Seems to be good quality. Maybe someday.
The show was good. I got to see a lot of MH, TT's & 5th wheels. Boy, some of those 5th wheels are very impressive! I don't have the room on my property to store one of them and I'm not sure my F150 is up to towing one.
We did check out the Tiffen Allegro Red ( r
iesel). That was a thing of beauty. It was on sale at the show for $189,000. The only way we could entertain the thought of owning that would be to sell our home and go fulltime which we aren't prepared to do at the time.
I can't recall seeing the Coachman Concord there. Not that it wasn't featured, I just can't recall.
One thing that interested me was the Toy Haulers which they had a few of there. I ride a motorcycle and the had some nice, enclosed toy haulers at a reasonable price.
