I was wondering, do those Prevost Marathon coaches ever get dirty? They always seem to be clean and shinny even if they drive in the same weather I do.

They don't stop to pee, they stop to wipe off the road grime!

If you get a chance to meet the owners of a mega coach...say HI!

The 3 times I have, found the owners to be very nice folks.
They have big beautiful RV's , but they are out there for many of the same reasons we are.

Of course, we have an attached garage that they don't have.

I have serious envy of Prevost owners. I am constantly perusing the Prevost site just to admire the interiors...well some of them. Then I come back to reality and logoff the site and appreciate what I have.

What I aint got, I dont need.

A Prevost has at least 15 tons of what I dont need. But they can only dream of my MPG!

If I could afford a Prevost, I would still have what I'm living F/T in now. There are many ways to spend money.

They are not worried about MPG or anything else. Just ordinary people enjoying the lifestyle. No worries!

Yep. No worries. Like me!

I think it would be interesting to know the ratio of folks in therapy based on their coach MSRP. I would bet the sanest are back-packers.
