DW & I are on our 2nd coach, & in both cases we found a lightly used class A. Both were Winnebago's. Winnebago is a high quality product with good customer service & online support. Parts are available through winnebagoparts.com. We have been full timing for over a year now & our coach has had no problems even though it is 16 years old.
Winnebago high quality wall to roof separation.
It wll get 15 mpg and handel like its on rails,it will feel like your riding on a big puffy cloud and it will be so quiet it will be deafening. Will also be able go up and down any grade with ease.
I seriously don't know :B
My concern with the higher end coaches as opposed to something built on the Ford or Workhorse gas chassis is that anything can break and usually will in the most remote little Podunk town. Parts can always be overnighted but the cheaper units use normal truck parts that pretty much any little auto part store has on the shelf. Maintenance is key to a used coach's condition but it's hard to know for sure how well something was taken care of. I'd tend to go no older than 10 years. If you take good care from that point on you should have years of use ahead. Appearance can be a problem. most coaches live outside and after 10 years don't look all that good. Tape striping goes bad and fiberglass gel coat gets dull. It really doesn't work to bring them back and a full paint job costs a lot.
This one spent its life outside still shines pretty good for almost 20 years old.
I use both rejex and nu Finnish and don't see much difference in applying or removal. I do it once a year, my coach is inside when not in use and looks new all the time
Dude two years old,stored inside I would hope it looks like new :S
I have been a member with GS for 14 years or so only had to call once for a rear inside dual blowout. Turned out there was a tire shop at the next exit about 1/4 mile away. So instead of towing us we drove it there.
A state trooper had also stoped to see if we were ok and gave us a escort to the ramp.
So now it is renewall time I have read all the posts over the years and CN seems to be the preferred in roadside assistance. The thing that pi$$ed me off is that for a new GS member to join its $89 and for me or someone that is a returning loyal customer it's $112 per year.
I now have CN for 3 years at $233 and hope in never have to use them.
I'm still working. No pension do have a small 401k, house is paid for and have no debt.
The scary thing for me is how much will we need per month/ year to live on?
One thing is for sure is that we need to get out of Ct. We are going to florida in a few weeks and are going to look around their then in Sept/Oct we are going to look at NC.
