First motor-home was a 1992 Airstream Land-yacht gasser.

Second is my 2002 Monaco Windsor diesel pusher.

#1 A new 1987 23 foot Toyota Dolphin. We bought it new and kept in longer that all the rest combined. In reality, this unit was really not much more than an over glorified camper but due to a military assignment and not wanting to sell the house we owned at the time, we lived in it together 3 of the 4 years I was stationed in Phoenix AZ.




#2 A used 2002 Coachman 31KS.




#3 A used 2004 Allegro Bay 37DB. Best quality coach, body and interior, we've owned, but never liked the chassis, Chevy engine or Allison tranny.



#4 Bought a year old 2011 Vista 26P with less than 3k on it. Even though it was an excellent unit, it ended up being far too small. We had decided we wanted something smaller and an F-53 chassis and V-10. We quickly realized we went too small and regretted it during the first long trip.




#5 Unnamed New 35 foot 2013/14 with the F-53 Mor/Ryde chassis. Drove and handled like a dream, but we started having problems with the poor coach quality and the slides from day one. Dumped it after 5 months when repairs could not be done to our satisfaction.

Trying to be nice, so no Picture.


# 6 2014 Itasca Sunstar 35F. Think it's a keeper!

FWIW I like the old slanted front better than the vertical approach common today. It seems like the new stuff lacks class. ;-)
