Hi— Do you have a good source for the nickel pieces? (Door knobs, handles, etc) thanks

Sayers - Welcome to the IRV2 and CC gang!!

We did a combo of cabinet pull knobs, and other metal hardware. By shopping Amazon, Home Depot and a local higher end older hardware store, San Diego Hardware. I'd say 65% between Home Depot and Lowe's, depending upon She Who Had Final Purchasing Approval liked!! 25% was via Amazon. A few items were from San Diego Hardware.

Lighting pucks were from Kevin Waite, and by the way, I sent all of our removed brass pucks to him to 'pay forward' as replacement pucks as needed. Kevin is a diligent supplier of the unusual... All of our pucks, went to LED from halogen at the same time!

As noted, we have the shower trim door trim still in bronze, as well as the shower handle and sliding pole too, and the lavatory sink faucet too - to still change over to satin. We'll get these done, but we prioritize each years 'discretionary mod's' between us, and try to follow our agreement between us diligently!! (So easy, to just a say 'Do it all...!!' and get it behind us. But, we're trying to fund these medications during retirement and out of a very small hunk of funds we've left in the market for met to be a bit more 'speculative'. So, slow bye but sure on these changes!!!

Best to you,
Smitty

Thanks for the info. Kevin just sent me some parts this weekend, including new overhead pucks. Unfortunately he doesn’t have an nickel puck rings left, and no other hardware.

We changed as many LED’s as we could. The main living room lights are on dimmers. We have tried a few but they do not completely dim. Did you find a solution? Thanks!

We have been kinda liking the 2002-2005 affinity, we have looked at a few of the 2006-2007 coaches as well.

Open to all ideas and opinions and thanks in advance for your input.
Maybe a few more things to add
Not so much a recommendation as a heads up... there's an Allure 430 at Peninsula RV in Sequim on (I think) consignment. I think it's a 2009 but you should call (360-582-9199) to get the particulars. The two reasons I mention it are that it's kind of in your neighborhood and it's Sequim, where there's not that many people shopping for higher end motor coaches.

FWIW

We changed all ou r polished brass to brushed nickel. Door and drawer pulls from HD. Wall sconces from Kevin. Sink faucets from Lowe's, shower head-mounting rod from Faucets Direct. Trim around diverter and handle from OEM. Last thing was new shower enclosure custom from local glass guy. Was cheaper than ordering new one from CC.

FWIW
I went to the web site (Click here Stock# 1431) and it appears to be a 37' Sunset Bay. It is listed as a 2006. I have a 2007 Sunset Bay.

Side note: I'm not sure if the ladder would get in the way of the engine bay door? It appears to be a fixed ladder top to bottom, not split with an extension as is done is most applications.

I am looking at a 2007 37' That price seems about right from what I have researched.
But I may be crazy....is 125k a good price for this coach?

Of course condition is important and without seeing the coach you don't know how much will be required to make it "right"
