I have a 2007 Montana fifth wheel and a 2002 F250, both bought used. But, nobody has more fun or enjoys the full time life style more than I do.

I think every camper, coach or van...even tents have their own allure to their owners. It's all good, isn't it. Who is to say that those in a Prevost have a better time than we do?

Don't be offended by the term "entry level". Even the manufacturers use it to describe some of their motorhomes. When Winnebago introduced the Forza they advertised it as an entry level diesel pusher. They're marketing it to people who want the power and ride of a diesel pusher in a with a price that appeals to a first time buyer. They freely admit it has fewer luxury amenities than their highest end models.

They know there's an interest in diesel pushers, but it's hard for many to think about spending nearly $500,000.00 on a top of the line motorhome as their first purchase. They believe they've equipped it well enough to please new customers without breaking the bank. I'm sure they're also thinking that after some time period it will be traded in on one of their "luxury" models.

It's funny to me. I used to look at Prevost coaches and drool, but now I just think what a waste of money. I can afford more than I have, but I bought what I needed, not wanted. If someone considers it an entry level coach then they don't have to come in it, or enjoy the good times being had outside it. It's mine and I love it. I also hate the Fleetwood vs Winnebago vs Newmar vs Entegra, etc, etc. It gets old.

It's just that the often justified term "ostentatious level coach" just doesn't have the panache, and thus is seldom employed..

I have an "Entry Level" coach. My SportsCoach 385DS does everything a $400k+ Newall does... and gets better fuel mileage and my bank account is $250k fatter.

If it wouldn't have been for my entry level coach, I would never have gotten into RVing.

Entry Level? I don't know, I just got it.
What year is that? 1982
Just a couple questions I have been asked.
Responses vary from, we love it, its all original, and she runs like a top.
A newer one on the horizon, Yes maybe a 20 year newer one. and Is yours paid for?
We have fun no matter what we are doing or driving.
Older yes, but they are all paid for, and operate like new and shine like new.
Love it, or them
Enjoy what ever you chose
Tim

Face it...there will always be those that have to have some kind of status assigned to everything. I once owned an entry level mower that I had to push around or I once had an entry level... You get my point.

When we bought our Winnebago Adventurer we didn't realize it was an entry level to the NEXT entry level. LOL It clearly wasn't an entry level gasser at all.

So, as many have said, in abstract the term "entry level" is not bad. To be honest, and I do mean this, for the vast majority of RVers, the first RV/Tent/whatever is their "entry level" and they progress from there. Some don't and that is their choice and ought not be fodder speculation by me on why they made that choice.

HOWEVER...if some duffus refers to another owner's rig as "entry level" they are being extremely insulting. That is like telling a S&B owner they can and should own something better. Them's could be fighting words.

One last thought...

I HATE it when any one seems apologetic about what they own. Sometimes they will use the term "entry level" almost as an excuse for what they own. Folks, I have a DSDP because I can and want one not because I expect others to do the same. I don't care if it is a tent or a Prevost that sets up next to me as long as they are proud of what they have, are good neighbors and enjoy the experience that it brings to them and their family.

My view is a tent or a lean to is true entry into camping so to have a motorhome of any description is well on up the options....GlenB
