Moved up from a tent to a Class A

As of a few weeks ago, I purchased my first RV. A 2010 Entegra Aspire 40SKT. The first owner aparently couldnt use it because it was too big, so he traded it off for a 5th wheel with only 6,000 miles on the clock, and 145 hours on the generator. Needles to say, he took a bath which is good news for me! As it turned out the dealer that took it on trade was needing cash flow pretty bad so they took my (If I go $1 lower, they will probably hang up on me offer) After a day of paperwork, I flew to Florida to drive it back to Texas with my dad. Upon inspection I found a brand new coach. The cook top has never been used, the air pump for the pull out bed was still in the box. It even smelled new inside! On the way home I called Entegra and discovered the coach still had 6 months left on the factory bumper to bumper warranty from when it entered service

Its really incredible, and I enjoy reading all the good info on this site! I have a lot to learn, and this site definately helps.

Here are some pictures (Mothers wheel polish is geat!)

What a gorgeous rig! We did that same tent-to-RV upgrade and haven't looked back. Welcome to luxury camping

Congrats on a great coach. I went from a tent to Class A also, but with 7 RV's in between from pop-ups to TT's, a 5th wheel and 2 MH's. Great find, enjoy...

Nice looking rig, and a huge jump from a tent. Years ago we tented with the family, moved up to a couple different travel trailers, then finally to our second MH. I still have a dome tent but hope I never have to use it again!!!!

Hog hunting is going to be a LOT more comfortable!

I also plan to use it for my business going to motorcycle rallies as well as shooting competitions. With all the cargo capacity, it will haul a ton of stuff. I have been researching a lot of the boondocking section. It will be a rare event when I have electricy to plug into.

Thanks for the comments!

Second I miss read your last post....."I also plan to use it for my business going to motorcycle rallies as well as shooting competitors". LOL
