Thank you. I have seen their inventory on rv trader. I don't think they had anything in our price range that slept at least 6. We originally looked at class c's that easily slept 8, but then I learned quickly we would be overweight for their chassis. I will check their site again.

The only racks I have seen fit up to 4. If you have little kids, you can try storing 1 or 2 in the cargo bins underneath. You may need to remove some wheels or handle bars. As far as finding a coach, here is how I approached it. We have 4 kids so I need a place for them to sleep. Ages 9,7,6,4. I had a price in mind that I could not go over. I wanted a specific power train. And I figured I would need as much room as possible. And condition, along with specific recalls needed to be done. I got very close to hitting all those thing. The only catch, was we have a free standing table, one couch, and a recliner. We have had to crowd a bit to sleep. My thinking was if this works out and we like it. (this was our first MH ever) I can easily buy another sofa to go across from our other sofa and remove the recliner and wine rack. Looking at sofas online currently to do just that.

I have had the same issue. Ideally we would like to have 2 sofas and a dinette. The selection has been low for this setup. Thank you for the suggestion on the bikes. It looks like that's what I will have to do. Luckily our 2 oldest are 17. They are less and less interested in hanging out with their old uncool parents. I see us down to taking 4 kids soon.

Welcome from across the Delaware. My wife and I have made this coming season a PS State Park camping year. You have a lot of great places out that way with lots to do.

I'm with your wife, boats are too restrictive.

We are in Stewartstown. I like your plan better. We are driving down in one day staying two weeks and driving back in one day. Pretty aggressive plan, but I've done it before in my truck. I know the rv won't be as easy.

We did the 1 day run in '97 in a pickup truck, it was brutal I said I'd never do it again. Have a good trip.

A couple weeks ago, we left State College PA at 7pm on wednesday once I got home from work and made it to Fredericksburg, VA. I slept a couple hours. Woke up and drove the rest of the way. Went through quite a few Monsters. Then that Sunday, we went to the park till 3:30p And left to drive back. I made it to South carolina, slept a few hours and kept motoring. We were on a quest for fun.

We may have had a change in plans. We have found a 2001 Fleetwood Discovery 37U with the 330HP Cat engine. The good news is the place selling the coach fell in love with my boat (DW says it has to go) I have for sale and are taking it as a trade for a decent amount of money. Killing two birds with one stone. My question is how is the 330 Cat? I am very familiar with the Cummins motors, but I know zip about the Cat. I already searched the forums and didn't see many complaints other than the slobber tube issue and overheating. Any input is appreciated. Looks like this is a done deal unless anyone has something scary to tell me about this coach.
