2006 CC Allure v 2006 Monaco Dynasty Diamond

My husband and I are buying our first motor home and will be FT in our coach. This is all completely new for us. He is currently working in Upper State NY and we will live up there until Jan 1st. Atlanta & northern Fl. will be next stops in the coming 2 yrs.
We live in Naples, Fl and will keep our place here. I am doing the looking right now since he is busy working but we have done the research together and have narrowed our search to these two coaches. We are also open to other MH's that have what these models seem to provide.
My DH is 6'5", having a king bed is necessary and at least 40-42ft. Seems best for us.
We need something reliable.... Especially since we are new to this and a coach that will be good for us in cold and hot climates.
I have my eye on a couple of each of these models, he will be in town next week and we are planning on purchasing one and hitting the road writhing a week and a half.
We have been researching all of this for about a year and have many friends with class a MH's.
I would like any thoughts and/or advice!! We have been married almost 30 yrs. and trust each other to make decisions for one another. .
We have been apart for most of this year and can't do it anymore, he has the time off next week, we want to be prepared to make an offer and be able to head out TOGETHER...along with our three little dogs. 4 lb. Chi, and two 8 lb. Mexican Frenchies, (chi x French Bulldog).
I also need some great advice on what we "need" to be comfortable in our MH and supplies.
Thanks so much in advance!

Welcome and good luck on your adventure. Keep in mind that a king size bed is not always the same size as one you may have at home. I always have found that what I need to be comfortable in my coach is the same stuff I have at home. You have to decide on what you really need and what you can get by without.

Take your time .... spend time in both ... you'll know which one fits best ......
Of course would recommend looking at Travel Supreme ... this based on the year you're look at .....

Those are both great MH's from quality builders. Decide which one checks out best overall, and which floor plan appeals to you most. As said, consider a Travel Supreme Select and a Newmar as well, two other high end builders. Good luck.

Wow, we hadn't checked out Travel Supreme....just did, they are something. Newmar was a front runner also. I think we have settled on a Monaco Dynasty Diamond IV, Ralph Lauren package. If this does not come to fruition next week, we will definitely add TS to the front of the list! Love learning something new all the time.
