Welcome to the forum. Sounds like you're having fun!

I own a 2007 Itasca Ellipse which is the sister to the Tour. We bought new. I do love my coach and I sure wouldn't worry about something as small as the personal storage while driving. I have the cup holder and the overhead cabinets and have added a couple of pouches on the left hand console and it's fine. I do wish there was a little slide out tray for a sandwich but hey...

Having said I love my coach, you're looking at some of my very favorites which could sway me away from it. The Bus is tops but you know it's a much different price point and the Revolution has always been a favorite of mine if only for the styling.

Just shooting from the hip here but if I were to do it all over again I would probably buy a used Phaeton. It's a great coach produced by a great company.

Best of luck.

We bought an 05 Discovery new and kept it for several years with no problems except for very minor door adjustments and one small plumbing leak. We sold it and bought an 03 Revolution with very little miles as we liked the exterior styling as well as the higher quality interior with its all hardwood cabinetry, nicer fabrics, upscale lighting, and nicer fit and finish.

After all these years we still get complements on its appearance both exterior and interior. The coach is comfortable and quiet going down the road with a plush ride. No wind noise, leaks, rattles or squeeks. That says a lot for a unit that is 9 years old. Fleetwood has been great in my book.

Thanks for these great responses. I'm leaning hard toward the Revolution. The tour just doesn't have the floorplan we're looking for and the Bus is just way too expensive for what you get. I wish the Revolution kitchen had a counter extension like the others but I guess you can't have everything. The 2011's are selling pretty cheap now that the 12's are coming out so I just might end up with an '11 Revolution.
