From Kentucky with a ton of questions!

How did I get this old and know so little?!?!?!?!?

Hello to everyone from the cntral region of the Bluegrass state. Still in the calculating stage but have settled on a DP as the best choice for us. Now we just need to find THE one.

As a bit of background on us--My lovely wife, Carol, has been a Realtor for almost 30 years and is the Broker/Owner of our NextHome Custom Realty.

I retired from the U.S.Army in 1992, used my GI Bill to go back to college and then started working for the Commonwealth of KY in 2001. Now I'm getting ready to retire from the state so Carol says "You know if you got your real estate license......" So now I have a new license to help out in our company.

Our youngest starts college this week so we have a bit more flexibility in our schedule to travel. So we are in the process of downsizing, selling our house and clearing out some (junk).

So the burning question of the day--How do you go through a toll booth in a DP that doesn't have a driver's window????

And I'm sure that is only the first of many so thanks in advance!!

I have never seen a Class A without an opening drivers side window. There may be some but I have never seen one.

Ours has a sliding window, they call it a "toll window". Kind of wish it was bigger and a little higher up. I can't even stick my head out to look at side clearance. You can see the black framework in the bigger picture below.

Welcome Goofy1, from a fellow Kentuckian and a fellow State employee. I retired from Kentucky Transportation Cabinet the same year you started your employment.

Like the others have said, I don't know of a coach that doesn't have a sliding driver's side window. Best of luck with your search, and if you have any questions, just ask. There are many great people here on this forum.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Hope you find the perfect DP for your needs! I think they all have a window that opens beside the driver.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Thumbs up

Thanks everyone for the responses!! Some of the units that I've seen on-line didn't appear to have a window. I'll have to be more diligent in my observation skills.

My lovely and I have been exploring this option for a few years now. A couple of years ago we rented a class C from D&D Rentals in W. Alexandria, OH (great place btw) and toured out thru Nebraska, South Dakota for 2 weeks. Didn't care much for the Class C but loved the traveling.

Will add my 2 cents, never seen a Class A without a window that opened. Be sure to post after you make your purchase to let us know coach you bought.
