The wife and I were just talking about this the other night while I was repairing our step cover. She asked me if I could have another coach what it would be.
I had to stop and think harder than I thought I would. At first I thought about some of the newer ones but I am not happy with much of the newer emissions items on the 2008 and up models. So if I were to replace mine it would be with a 2007 or older. I only had a few come to mind that I would even consider to be a step up in that year range. I thought about a Foretravel Nimbus or Phenix, CC Affinity/Magna or a Monaco Signature/Executive. Then I thought about the price difference between mine and one of those and decided, nope. When the time is right I will probably spend a fraction of the cost to upgrade to one of those and merely have ours repainted.
I don't want to go over 40' due to the fact that I am already overlength and don't want to be any more overlength and our 40' fits perfectly in the driveway without hanging over. I like the fact that we have the 10kw Onan generator and triple roof airs in a 40' package which is hard to come by.
So for the most part I would agree with Steve, just a slight remodel and be happy with what we have. Glad to see that I am not the only one that thinks that way.
