Just joined, buying second motor home

Hi all,

I've been on other forums for other topics and I hope to have as good an experience here as I have had on the others. First, thanks to everyone who participates and helps all of us out! I should have been on this forum about two years ago. My wife and I bought a 2015 Itasca (Winnebago) Spirit 25' with no slide outs. As I'm sure many of you immediately predicted we're tired of the interior size limitations and are looking for another class C that will give us a larger bed with access on both sides and much more elbow room elsewhere.

Right now we're looking closely at both larger Winnebago Spirits and the Coachmen Leprechaun. Features fit and finish etc. seem to be quite comparable. Our biggest obstacle on the Leprechaun is the roof is not a solid fiber glass unit, but a new "TPO" material. No need to answer this tech question here as I will post it in an appropriate location.

Welcome. Nothing better for adding elbow room than a couple of slides. Hard to beat them. My next coach will have more of them, for sure.

We have a full wall slide out on our 25 foot Isata 3 (Dynamax) Class C and we are amazed on how much room it actually gives and the walk around queen size bed for us was a must

Hi Momdoc,

I believe that we are one of a long line of first time motor home purchasers who did some due diligence and drove a rental for one trip and then bought a small motor home because we lacked confidence in driving a longer rig and didn't understand how hard it can be to make a bed that you only have access to about 15% of its edges!
