Welcome! Enjoy your search and be patient. There is a lot to look at out there. I am a big fan of well maintained and gently used models. Someone else has taken the initial depreciation hit and worked out the construction gremlins.
But, I know there are reasons that some people like new.
Good luck in your search!

Hi Steven,

Just bought a 2004 Winnebago Itasca class A 33 ft. Did this after months of research HERE and after 2 times camping am sure we made the right choice.

Read old threads about everything. Ask question and go to RV shows. Walk inside some of what you want and some of what you don't want. See what you absolutely need and what would be nice and what doesn't matter. Then narrow it down, start concentrating on that one or two and ask more questions. YouTube has a lot of videos about all sorts of rigs. Enter what interests you and take a voyage.

Good luck on finding the perfect rig for you. We didn't want payments so we bought used. Lynne
Love the sunshine and warmer weather!

Welcome to the forum. Am not familiar with the coach that you mention. My advice is to take your time to evaluate just what you want in the coach and how you will use it...not only now, but some years into the future. We are very close to retirement too. The best advice:

Find the floor plan that works for you,
By your second coach first.

Happy shopping!

Will be watching what everyone advices. DW and I are moving from a TT to a MH. Also interested in a 33' used MH. Have two in mind - Coachmen Mirada 2013 and Holiday Rambler 2011. Both with low mileage and good prices. The old saying, "Think with your head and follow your heart." I think with my head - Holiday Rambler better track record on construction. DW - follows your heart - Coachmen has a better floor plan and colors. I want to keep DW happy, but am I making a huge mistake if I go with the Coachmen? (Yes - "pw'd" comes to mind.)
