Meant to say all maintenance/repairs have averaged $500 per year, (a total of "only" $6,000).
DEPRECIATION has been the biggest loss......the value of my so called "investment", has dropped nearly $50,000 in 12 years.

Speaking of costs, I was pleasantly surprised that we averaged 8.9 mpg yesterday driving it home. I thought with the bigger engine and heavier load (we had a 300 hp before and about 27,000 lbs) that it would suck gas.

It is a depreciating asset but at least you don't have to pay property taxes on it. One positive. Of course, there are so many other positives as well. What a great way to travel and see the world - in a "house on wheels". When we bought our first motorhome a little over a year ago, we were just thrilled with the whole camping experience in an RV (used to be tent campers) and the fun keeps coming.

When telling new people we meet about the MH and traveling many will say that they have the "dream" to do this also. We always knew it was our dream but many others share it.

Dream maker is so suitable for traveling in a motor coach. My husband and I have had lots of adventures over our 26 years of marriage and it just keeps getting better especially now with a MH. It's really the best way to travel. Pinch me someone!

I like when the LR is actually with the TV. Whoever designed the mid-ship TV's & the stuck the LR in the front of the coach - so you have to look past or OVER the dinette table/chairs to see the TV - wasn't thinking with all their brain cells.

i'm not big on naming things; have enough trouble getting kids and grandkids right-5 "A"s and 2 "M"s. I'd just call it the "Tour." Ours is the "Meridian."

Congrats on your Tour. We have the same color in the QD. What color did you select for the inside. We have vino...I love red We have owned 6 Winnebagos since 97, but we never named any of them. Our plates say CAPTS Q since my DH spent 32 years in the Navy and a lot of it on Carriers. Maybe we will just call her Carrier. Have you seen the custom mud guards. He has one that says "Anchors Away" in chrome. A real beauty. Might be on our shopping list

We ended up naming our coach "Big Mac". It is really the most appropriate and personal for our names. I am ordering vanity plates to go on the front and also a Florida license plate.

No i didn't know about the mud guards, but I will check it out.

We did get the custom car mat that goes all around the front that protects the driver area and steps and passenger area. That was a good purchase. They took care of that for us at Lazy Days.

Carrier is a good name for your coach - personal to you.

Our interior is black. We had a choice between the black or the cream and we decided on the black since we are pretty active outdoor people w/dogs so we would have inevitably got the cream dirty quick. I am not crazy abou the black either, but no other options.

I really like the black garnett exterior. It kind of changes colors depending on if you are in the sun or shade. I like that.
