Now if you want some ideas of a million dollar coach with no regards to operating/maintaining expense. Now i'll assume Palehorse99 will allow for the trust fund to have "and run the rig within reason" clause. Here are a few ideas I'd love. Basically it's about finding the right donor vehicle.

If an "off-the-shelf" manufacturer, King Aire Bunk unit - fully customized out (that should take care of most of it) This would include replacing their standard lift TV with a 90" unit up front and a 60" Ultra HD (4 times that of 1080p) along with a pull-out BBQ and kitchen complete with filet station.

Now if customized, an Ultravan fully restored and kitted out replete with tri-coat paint (Cadillac white!) for short weekend type trips and one of the following:

- Customized "Routemaster" yep a double decker motorhome
- Futureliner (Probably hard to get considering how many of them were made)
- Sceniccruiser complete with a "GMC buffalo or New Look" based trailer (35 ft + 35ft should be about legalish right)? completely customized with trailer unit optimized as a tailgate/Nascar unit

If you wish I might later go into more detail. But I get a hint I was a thread killer. so you might not want that detail.

I would purchase my wife, each of my kids, grand kids and great grand kids a new CanAm 4-wheeler and a hauler to haul them, and a large parcel of land in Northern Mich., build a large cabin to stay in and just enjoy the thrill of watching all of them having a blast. What ever is left over would pay for the fuel and up-keep of the units.

If I had that to spend I would purchase the coach I have now again, give $100,000 to each of our 3 children and enjoy the rest traveling around the country.

Along the lines of not just the RV I would pay someone to work our jobs for us so we could start early retirement now... Oh and install a 1-pc windshield with automotive style wipers. Everyone needs to see the road better

You guys have to reread the original post and play by the rules.

or what exactly?

But yeah - you called that one right. Of course the rules did evolve a bit over time....

All in good fun.

Hi,
I would spend the money as follows:
1 - Pay off my existing RV
2 - Build a big heated garage for my RV.
3 - Buy a house on a lake with boat dock/garage and full hookups for RV.
4 - Buy a RV lot in Gulf Shores, AL

The rest if any left would be for fuel to go anywhere I want.

That should do it so when do I expect to see the check?
