The closest thing to a bulletproof RV ( class A) would be a Provost with only basic need inside, regardless of age. It's very doubtful such exists.

I've not seen one. Unless you buy the coach and do it yourself, that would be the ultimate but at the rate i would find time to work on it the project would last for years!!

Another at the top of the list would be Newell, but be prepared to pay $1/4 million for one 10 years old!

Actually the used newells run a little bit less than the used prevosts, the problem with both of them is the cost of repairs!!! Our truck broker bought a 9year old used prevost and it seems that every other week something is going wrong with it. Generator had run hot at one time had to rebuild generator, aqua hot system, toilet holding tank pump that sends to holding tank, central air, automatic air bag leveler, dash air!!! Thats just what i can remember. He's spent another 30,000 since the purchase and still counting. Those buses are so complex it takes deep deep deep pockets to not only purchase one but to maintain one!!!'

The Newell's are sold factory direct, used included....if you got the bucks they will warrantee used also if it's in their sales system as each coach taken in in trade gets all factory upgrades and needed repairs.

My Country Coach Concept is very close to being a bus. There are so many redundant features, like three heating and air cond. systems.So far so good, we really like this one and it seems to be in tip top shape.........that said , I need to get back trying to find some loose grounds among the hundreds of LED and color coated wires that all lead to daughter boards which are plugged into the mother board which measures 2 ft x 4 ft. The display looks like your average commercial airliner...quite impressive when all the LEDs are lit . I am learning as I go basic electrical/ computer interfaces and how they all work together...

PoorFarmer,

I've been looking at/for the same type of unit. I've actually found several with bunks and a front drop down. Although I have been trying to find one with a 10k lb. hitch. Be aware of the weight capacities of the drop downs, some aren't that much.

Thor Pallazo 33.3 (34'8")
Forest River Legacy SR300 (36'6")
Fleetwood Excursion 35E (36'9")

Coachman makes bunk models but not a front drop down
Forest River Berkshire bunk but no drop down


Also consider the Jayco Seneca 37FS (39'1"), a class C but with the capacity of a class A.

Just a few thoughts, I just looked at the Pallazo and am hoping to look at the Excursion. I would consider the Seneca if I found one used for the right price.

Agree with you totally rebel. The unit i got now has a washer and dryer and my wife really uses it them a lot. I dont think its offere in any of those but the jayco. Not very many options out there, so the look continues.
