Getting ready to pull the trigger

David and Debbi here. Been lurking and collecting info for a while. Lots of things have kept us from the plunge.

Since were moving we plan to use it to go back and forth and pull a load of stuff.

We are looking at a couple and are leaning toward a 2003 41DS02 Travel Supreme Select. Comes with a trailer, The trailer we have isn't the best so that's a plus. Kinda high miles 87,000 but seems very well cared for. Not sure about the cross bracing but the owner is very knowledgeable and told me he always fixed things right away.


The second is a 2009 Damon Tuscany


Less miles, smaller engine repo so we don't know the maintenance. I've always liked the TS's and we've looked at a couple but never been ready to buy.We travel with critters and the Damon's floor plan is slightly better to compartmentalize when needed.

Any tips or traps to look out for.

The Damon Tuscany does not come even close to comparing to a Travel Supreme Select. The Travel Supreme Select is a very high end coach. 87,000 miles is not even beginning to be broken in. If inspection shows it to be well cared for, and maintenance has been well done, the Travel Supreme would get my vote.
