Would You

Would you purchase your RV again if you had a choice? Why? If not, why not?

Question I don't know yet.

I have five years to go on my current plan. At the end of that time, I will upgrade, keep or dump my class A. That is when my extended warranty expires.

Probably not but not because of anything to do with the coach.

I bought my first RV ever in April of 2007 after retiring and chose a brand new 40' DP. I went with a new coach largely because it was hard to find a used one with 7' ceilings... I'm 6'6" tall and didn't want to be stooping over all the time.

It seemed like a great plan at the time but as you might recall the economy took a bit of a dip shortly after that which made making such a large purchase look a bit out of line.

Oh well, it is what it is but if I knew then what I know now I would probably buy used.

I would say definitely yes looking out the window at it, can't wait to head out tomorrow. It's what I wanted then and I would not change a thing unless we win the lottery.

Without a doubt. When looking at coaches I saw several Beavers and literally drooled never thinking I would ever get one. Then I saw this one and made a ridiculously low offer which the dealer eventually accepted. So now I have my Beaver.

So far (one season), yes we would. It's not perfect, but it was a good deal and it works for us. It would have been nice not to have to go so much into debt, but if we'd waited utntil we'd saved up, we'd be in a wooden overcoat, pushing up the daisies.

We would keep ours. We did a lot of comparison and investigation and education before we bought----we think it payed off in the best decision for us and we have not been disappointed.

Under the same circumstances we would. This not our ultimate RV though. Fine as an entry level.

Hi DRosedale,
Yes, I would purchase the same coach again. Floor plan sells the coach. We have a floor plan that is exactly what we need.

I'd have to think about it.
We started out with a used Bounder which was in really good shape for its age, when everything started to dump we thought it was a good time to upgrade and we did. Went from the 90 bounder 35' to an 05 Southwind 38' with 3 slides. We love the floorplan.
We love the coach but right now we have not been able to get out in it yet.
One of my disadvantages is that I have to pay to store it. I don't have room on my property to keep it. Everytime we want to use it now I have to drive about 12 miles to get it from the garage I'm paying for to store it.
All the trips we have taken with it so far we have enjoyed.
So I'd have to think about it.
