The above replys are all good advice. When we sold our house in NY to retire in NC we had to stay in our Coleman pop-up for 5 weeks while looking for a house to buy. Now THAT was fun! we now have a class c, plenty of room for us, the little guy, and occasional grandkids. This will most likely be our only MH. Besides DW said i'm happy with this one.

My 2 cents worth, DW and I currantly have a deposit on a 2011 Georgetown 330TS. We are trading up from our 2000 Allegro 31UB. Allegro has 31000 miles on it and is in what I would consider excellant or at least very good condition. It does EVERYTHING we need it to do and all systems work great, heat pump ac plus 2 furnaces, genset (see thread under Gen Discuss.) hyd. jacks., fridge and ice maker etc. We are not retired, so that makes use weekend campers with hopefully a couple long trips per season. GT has under 5000 miles. Why are we changing rigs? Though the Allegro is in great shape, she is almost or is 13 years old. My mechanical abilitlies are basic + at best for routine type stuff. But when I look at our rig, especially inside, she looks old and dated. 19 inch "in dash tv" still cracks me up, though is easy to watch. But what do they say a rubber roof lasts, like 12 years on average? How about the fridge? Hot water heater? Still has the original tires on it. Lets see, that is 6 times around $425 per tire. These are just some of the issues that come to my mind, and what I use as discussion points with my DW who just loves our Allegro (our first and only MH). I look at old rusting RV's sitting in yards and drives and think "thats never going to happen to us", we would get out of the pastime, even if it means a fair loss (yep, you do lose on all of them) rather than beach our first and only rig in the yard.
Bottom line IS everyone is going to have their own wants and needs but this is just how we went about our decision to upgrade.
