Looking for quality. I have been looking at the Georgetowns as I really like the floor plans. 36-38 foot since we want to stay with gas since my husband can work on them. Low mileage is essential. Thoughts? Budget under $70,000.
"looking for quality" is very subjective. Many of the components on these things (air conditioners, as an example) are all from the same source. A roof mounted a/c can fail on a $500,000 coach just as easily as on a $70,000 coach. Now if 'quality' to you is very nice interior wood working, you can narrow down your searching. Maybe quality is a tile floor and not vinyl or carpet. Probably not viable with a gas coach due to the weight it would add. Just some thoughts to think about.
Floor plan is very important in my opinion. It takes lots of looking and kicking tires. If you already own one you like, I would enjoy it and not jump to anything quickly.
If your DH does work on gas coaches, a diesel is a different animal but I bet he would transition over very easily and you would open yourself up to a lot more options and features. Both gas and diesel coaches have their 'pros and cons'.
Definitely not 'one coach fits all' in this hobby of ours.
