Would you wait until 2016?
 
Hello everyone.:cool: we are looking to jump from our Itasca 24g 26 ft. Front engine Diesel to a larger 32-34 footer. Looking for more comfort, a quieter ride while still maintaining state park size. i do not mind the mix options of propane and electric. it offers a few extra days dry camping. i don't cook big meals.

My husband loves the 33aa tiffin allegro red. A tad larger than our needs. We loved the size of the Breeze 28 but a few issues unknown are the tire size and longevity of the rig. Looking for a perfect rig that size has not many options. The Fleetwood excursion 33a sounds closer to our needs as well. I need a place to lie down often in between camera shoots, so floor plans are important.

The question, would you think it would be wise to wait until 2016 considering we already have a nice, easy, small RV for now? I heard the Breeze may change again. And do you think there's a chance that some more mid range 33-35 footers may be out then? Thnx for your time,

BTW I love the irv2 forums!
Linda

I never think in life it's wise to wait... If you have the financial means to afford what you want, and it exists, buy it now and start enjoying it !

That said, You could attend the Tampa RV show in Florida that's in a few months....one or the largest in the Nation! Spend a couple of days looking at everything...might help
You make up your minds what you really want.

It depends on how old you are. If your in your 20's, lots of time to wait for model year changes. If you are in your late 70's how many travel years are left?

Thnx bro box and passdad1. We tend to be pretty impulsive , and I agree, life is getting short. we are in our mid sixties. All of a sudden you realize the tail end is close to life's end here on earth! So I hear you. ;)

Is there any of you who think that the trend is changing as far as RV length?

Good idea on the RV show. I believe a large one here on the west coast is next week. (Easier to get to ;)

another question, only two available excursions 4 hours from here. Would you buy one 4.5 hours away? Thnx

Be sure the "show" is a real show and not just a hyped up sales event with a couple of dealers..... In comparison, the super-show in Tampa, Fl had 57,000 paid people attending
last year!

I've also heard the one in Hershey, PA is a good one too....I think it's already past.

I think the trend in RV length is getting larger.... People seem to be getting larger
and need more room ;)

A, I would not wait. Were in our sixties and the light at the end of the tunnel is brighter every day. Purchasing our first MH 3 1/2 years ago then purchasing our new present coach was not planed it just happened. We are both extremely happy with our coach and presently full time for a bit. Trend is mostly in coaches 33 ft. Plus, however there have been great advances in class B and C with the Sprinter chassis coupled with Mercedes Diesel engines. Find your floor plan and use due diligence, get on the road!

We are definitely going to wait until 2016 to buy our next Country Coach!

We are in our mid sixties. We bought our first class a gasser 5 years ago. It was a 35 ft with 3 slides and a ford v10. Last year we traded it in on a 41 ft class A dp. It is just the 2 of us plus 2 dogs and a cat. The only thing that is for sure in my life is I woke up this morning and tomorrow is not guaranteed. If you can afford it buy it now and start enjoying.

That's were we are, mid-late 60's (66 almost 67 and 67 almost 68). I want to get a new/newer rig, DW wants to wait. I'm not sure what she's waiting for though as her health is bad (going in this next Friday for her third hernia operation and the 14th time in the hosp in three years). I'd like to enjoy a new/newer rig while we can.

X2 on this suggestion. Since you have an RV now, sign up for camping at the show and immerse yourself in the event.

In the meantime, do some serious brainstorming about your wants and needs. At a minimum, you will learn a lot.

There are no guarantees in life only odd's. The odds of waking up in your 20's is a heck of a lot better than those in their 70's. My Mom just turned 101 and beat ALL the odd makers...she is still collecting on an annuity that started paying at 65.:) My Dad passed at 63 while fulltiming in their trailer, only traveled for 3 years....he waited to long.

Thank everyone! I value your perspective and experience.
We have been stopping at a lot of RV sales lots, and pretty much seen what is out there with our needs. (A lot of reading online also). Wondering if anything new to the "comfort" and smaller size DP is on the horizon before we buy this year.
thanks,, ;)
