RE: Off topic re Pet Peeves

Look for the good and find it is all around. Share the joy with words of encouragement. Choose happiness, choose to share happiness and don't look back. Anyone can be a nasty, unhappy complaining grump. Make good choices and enjoy, no regrets in looking and experiencing the best life has to offer!! Make 2023 the best year yet!!

RE: Best ride for the buck

We had an 2014 Jayco Precept that I hated to drive. I have a CDL, drive coaches & school buses. We put upwards of 4k in steering/handling improvements but it still was a bear to keep on the road with wind or passing semi's, the v10 though a very capable engine is NOISY and thirsty, best mpg we saw was 8.5 mph. We traded it in for an older 07 Coachman Pathfinder, not a Tiffin, Newmar or Winnie all superior rigs, however much pricier. We head to state parks on weekends, we don't sweat the dirt roads or the trees rubbing along the side of the rig as we head to our campsite. We paid under 70k, and it's a camper with comforts, muddy dog, accident prone grandkids, don't phase us. I wanted a pre DEF, and a 5.9 Cummins because it's one of the best engines out there, yes it's a bit under powered at times but it's proven itself in pick ups, box trucks, school buses, motorhomes and boats. It's simplistic and parts are available, no issues getting service or maintenance done. My hubby was amazed at how quiet this motorhome is to ride in and no bang from the expansion joints. He works while I drive. With older units often you are limited in financing, we paid cash. It's older so be prepared to upgrade. We replaced A/C's, refrige, driver & passenger seats, plastic sinks, old faucets, upgraded all lights to LED and a new bigger inverter. Another 20k BUT it fits our needs, drives like a dream and we get 10 mpg doing the speed limit. Figure out your wants/needs and I'm certain there is an older unit out there for you. Best of luck!
