Going to look at a coach tomorrow. It has a macerator toilet, not an external pump but toilet. Totally unfamiliar with that. Anyone have any experience with those?

Dale, I have no experience with them but as a mechano/techie, what I do know is that the macerator grinds up the waste and is pumped out thru a smaller hose than the typical 3” version. I’ve always perceived it as an upgrade.

Yeah, I understand what it does. Terry used the add-on macerator. Helps finding things accidentally dropped in the toilet. Don't ask me how I know that. LOL We had two. . . one I let go with the Phaeton when I sold it and I kept the other one.

But this is the toilet itself. There is a built in macerator in the toilet itself. I just wondered if they are prone to problems, etc.

Well, I found my dream coach. Put earnest money down and she will soon be sitting under my port. Haven't picked out a name yet. She is silver, so perhaps the Silver Gypsy (a toast to my gray hair and her color) or the Gray/Silver Ghost.

I did not buy the Leisure Travel with the macerator toilet. But I am SOOOOO glad I went to look at it. I had never seen one in person and I would never buy one. First off, up front there is virtually no sitting. There are 2 jump seats which are very blocky and one owner told me they are good to put your feet up on when you turn the front seats around. Also, the inside storage is really weird. They don't make use of available space like other coaches do. And some doors you open up, the space basically extends under the floor level so a lot of stooping. No closets in the bedroom and the storage there is under the bed. You have to lift the bed which is on a ratchet type lift. To lower it you have to raise it all the way up, then down. I tried to do it with the mattress on and I couldn't do that. The lady showing it to be will forever be known as the "queen" OF velcro. She had it everywhere. No ducted A/C (a real deal killer for me) so she fashioned a fabric "scoop" which was velcroed to the A/C to push air out of the bedroom into the front. She mentioned that the bedroom stayed cold and it was always hotter up front. They had removed the bathroom door because they didn't like going past it in the hall to open it up. They had saved it and you could rehang it. They used a curtain. The macerator toilet they knicknamed the angry bear because that's what it sounds like when you flush it. Nice and noisy in the middle of the night when everyone is asleep. Finally the price. She had a price higher than MSRP on this 2 year old coach. I asked about that. She said she went to the web site and priced out a new one equipped like theirs and knocked a couple thousand off. I asked if she looked at NADA and she said, Oh no. Their prices don't reflect that you must wait 2-3 years for a new one to be built. ????? I didn't even ask to drive it. I told her it was a very nice coach, but not for me.

Went back home to my son's as we were leaving on a cruise the next day. Looked at RV TRader and low and behold. . . there was my dream coach maybe 4 miles up the road from me at my house in Polk City. And it was the exact coach I wanted! Priced already reasonably!!!! But here I was 100 miles away at the time. But I contacted them through RV TRader and eventually got to talk with them and begged them not to sell it before I got back and could come look. Long story short, it was love at first site. The ONLY thing it is lacking is a TPMS in the tires. I really wanted that. I don't like the add ons, but who knows. I may learn how to do that. I have signed the purchase agreement. They are currently living in it, remodeling their home they bought but have a new fiver being delivered as soon as they can get their port modified to slide the unit under. I am giving them till December 31. They are very nice people and we are all happy with our deal. They were asking about $1500 under low retail according to NADA and new ones from the factory are $67000 more. No that is not a misprint. It's a 2021 with lots of extras. Solar, 2 lithium batteries, a leveling system (BigFoot) on the Ford Transit. It's a Coach House, which was #1 on my list.

So MinnieMee will get a new home. I don't have plans to offer her for sale yet as my son and his wife are contemplating taking her. They have actually camped in her before and while I think it is really crowded for the three of them, they made it work. And if we camp together, I would take my granddaughter as I have twin beds now! If I end up selling her I shouldn't have trouble. Every time I post a pix of her on FB, people ask me how much.

Yay me! I am really happy and anxious to get her home. Told my son now if they want to visit, call ahead first, cause I may be out camping!
