Thanks to all of you who have responded to my question! I'm overwhelmed by the sheer number of people who cared enough to comment or to wish us well. You all are a great bunch of folks. Was all very, very helpful. You all are great!
Based on what you all have written, we likely will take the plunge if we can find the right coach. Nearly had it narrowed down to the brand and model we wanted, but then I got on a forum that bashed it pretty badly. So,we're back to the drawing board. If we take the plunge then we'll buy a new one, even though we understand all the cons that people post about doing so. If anyone has any thoughts on the Fleetwood Excursion or the Nexus Ghost, I'd love to hear them.
Thanks again for all your help!
