A real eye opener. Ask about the data base they have for Motorhomes and all RV's.
I went to this website and it was all about Florida real estate. Did I miss something?

My apologies.
The correct URL is
It has been a while since I visited their old site, how things change.
You will see a sample ratings page on their site. Not sure if they sell the database
with a membership anymore. I got mine in 2008.
Good luck.

You can buy a LOT of wallpaper and carpeting for the price of anything but a minor repair. Go for the good chassis and overall quality of the coach first. Happy wife won't be so happy sitting on the side of the road or if you drain the checkbook making repairs.

By the way... I have no knowledge of your desired coaches... I'm just speaking generally.

So today we made a tentative deal on a 2008 Itasca Ellipse 40WD. It is a pretty nice unit. 400hp, 8.9L ISL Cummins, 13000 miles, 3 slides. Does anybody know of any problems with this unit or Itasca's in general? I know originally we were looking for a 32-35' unit, but that just wasn't gonna Most of the DPs we found that could tow 10000 lbs, were all 37' and up. So we came across this model and it seems like a decent deal. Without giving the price away, what do you guys think a model like this should go for? It has tile floors, ultra leather on all the sofas etc, a king size bed, satelite dish, 4 TV's(yes four...three inside and one outside. why would anybody need that many tv's in a MH?)pass through storage with storage trays and all the other stuff most MH's have.

I don't want to be a party crasher but a boat that weighs 6500# sounds like a large boat you may want to check total combined length? most states have restrictions. So weight has a factor but length also need to be considered.

Most states and my home province has a combined max length of 65'. I will be right at 65'. Lol. So all is good.

good my old boat and truck was 65 and we traveled to several different states and never had a issue, but I figure if I would get in a accident or traffic stop by a state trooper they may take out the ruler and burn my butt
