New coach owner

Hello all! Upgrading from a fifth wheel toy hauler to a Motor coach for full timing. Buying an '06 Newmar Essex. Looking forward to full timing in this rig and gonna really enjoy driving this as opposed to pulling the 5er!

Welcome to the forum and to full-timing. We are in the process of looking at DPs for full-timing and have narrowed our list down to the following used coaches:

Newmar (Essex or King Aire)
Newell (2006 or older...most likely older due to cost)
Foretravel (Phenix if we go 2006 or newer)
Country Coach (Affinity or Magna)
Larry & Jan

Ex-Navy/retired Coast Guard CWO w/ 34 Years Total Service. Goal: 2016 - Sell our house and begin full-timing. January 2019 - Retire for good from my job and hit the road.
