Hi everyone. My husband and I will be ordering our first RV at the end of this month (IF the house closes) to go full time. We have had a couple of health related delays...been in the planning stages for a year!

Would love: feedback on Country Coach Intrigue (45) versus Travel Supreme Limited (45) if anyone has some experience.

Would also love: any pictures of rving to help us keep our dream alive!

THANKS!

Missy, WELCOME to the forum!!

As I'm sitting here in Nappanee for some warranty service, I'm wondering if you've considered the '07 Newmar Essex or the Mountain Aire?

Hi Missy. Welcome to IRV2.

Starting out with the biggest rig available is an awful big bite for the first time. Have you'll camped before? What type of campgrounds do you plan on staying in. The size of the motor home makes a big difference. Fourty-five footers are usually confined to MH resorts, the most expensive camping. State and Federal parks usually do not provide space for such a big rig. Just courious s/Toby

Toby, while I respect your opinion, I must say I've been ALL OVER the U.S. in this my secind 45'er and even did the State Park in Mercer,PA.

Yes, you're absolutely correct that most NPS facilities are meant for sub 40 coaches, with a little practice and research it's entirely possible to use the 45'er in a lot of places other than parks...
If one is to be using NPS parks a lot, they'd do better with a smaller coach...

I recommend "Big Rig Best Bets" as a must have addition to the 45'ers coach library.

Missy McCormick, welcome to iRV2.com. We are glad to have you join us here and look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. You will find a lot of good info here and the comparison you have listed will be intresting to follow. How much do you know about the chassis of these two units? One (Country Coach) builds the chassis from the ground up and Travel Supreme will build on the K2 Spartan chassis. GOod luck and enjoy the hunt.
