Hi everybody
My wonderful wife and I are new to this forum, but you folks sound (well...uh...read) like wonderful people, we are excited to be online with you!

We currently have a Trailmanor trailer that we have loved, but we are researching/hunting for a class A. Tiffin, Newmar, and Winnebago are on our short list. We are having a new grandbaby in Las Vegas in Feb. We plan to go out to visit, then shop for motorhomes starting in LV, and moving down to Tucson. Do any of you have any dealers you would recommend along that approx. route?

Thanks in advance for your help!
Rick of R&B

Welcome! I don't have any dealers to recommend here in AZ, although we have purchased our last two coaches here... service after the sale was the disappointing part. Also, I'm not familiar with dealers of those brands, but someone here will be able to help you! Just wanted to say hello and welcome!

Brenda, of...

RicknBarb;

Welcome to IRV2. We are the friendliest site on the INTERNET. We have owners forums for each of the brands you listed. Jump right in and ask questions. Post often and let us know what you decide to do.

Glad to have you join us. Can't help on the good dealer question, but others can.

I wish you the best in finding the perfect coach.

RicknBarb...
Welcome to iRV2! Not only do I feel this is the friendliest RV forum on the web..but most of the members are also some of the most knowledgable around!

As far as your question regarding RV dealers...well first off ... you do not state if you are looking at new or used or both . That could make a difference as to who people can recommend. I ran into someone who lives in AZ that did not buy in Az because the dealers keep their prices high for the reason that they deal with many Snowbirds...and take advantage of that situation.

He did buy from my favorite dealer in Grass Valley, Ca...and did what is called an "out of state delivery". He had the same positive comments as everyone else I have talked to in regards to DeMartini. The catch here..they do not sell NEW Newmar or Winnebago coaches...but they have been known to have them as trade-ins. (I am not sure of Tiffin.) I think they will deliver the coach to you (although that may be on special orders...I am not sure about the details)...and believe it or not ...a lot of this is done via phone and internet.

I hope that helps you some. Just make sure once you get your coach..join the appropriate owners forum here, because there will be all sorts of more detailed info from the same RV owners ...and if for some reason you end up with a Monaco... you will find me and many others with great information ...AND a huge sense of humor there!

I hope that no matter what coach you get..that you will see all the information you need can be found from the group here!

Again ....welcome to iRV2..congrats on the new Grandchild on the way..and Enjoy the board!!

Hey you wonderful people!!
Thanks for the very warm welcome. It is nice to meet you all!

To answer one question, we are looking for a used diesel pusher coach, preferably a Tiffin. We are finding it difficult to find a coach we like with a king bed, which we have decided is a must. We will keep looking. Thanks again-

R&B
