Lots of bang for the buck in these coaches now. Sounds like you're in for quite a ride! Best of luck!

speaking of 'bang for buck'

35% under MSRP....with all kinds of options
Stack washer dryer
ceramic tile floors
convection microwave
select comfort mattress
Onan 8K generator
6 way pwr driver passenger seats
residential refrigerator
diamond shield front protection
and a lot more

lot's O'bang

Same reason we ended up with our current ride. I have the same interior as the 2012/early 13 Sportscoaches, with all the hardwood, tile, blackout shades, etc. (plus we made some mods pre-delivery to our interior; and I switched out our awning for a solid color acrylic one, etc.). Even with all the mods we made, still was at a great price-point.

Just missed out on the residential fridges, which is my only regret. No other gas rig at the time had anywhere near these features when we purchased. The Georgetowns also provided similar upgrades about a year later (I love the "black diamond" interior option on them this year).

Coming up on 2 years of ownership this summer. In about 4-5 years, we may decided to get a diesel, but will see when the time comes. We're only vacationers so not sure what will be to our liking then. (I have my eye on an Entegra Anthem or American Coach Revolution, while my wallet just laughs at me!)

We traded our Georgetown (bunk model) in on this one. Georgetown was/is very nice. We had plenty of room, just have a good bit more now.

My brother had an American Eagle at one time....they loved it.
My wallet would convulse, my bank account would revolt and my wife would shoot me.

maybe we'll see you on the road sometime.....where are you from?

Snowy, Polar-Vortexed New Jersey. 60 degrees here today before we plunge back in the low teens next week. Much rather be just about ANYWHERE else!

with that weather 'anywhere else' would be a good place, so I won't tell you that it will be in the 70's here this weekend....wouldn't want to spoil your day.
My wife is originally from North Dakota 'THE ORIGINAL' frozen tundra! So I can relate.
I think we are looking at coming up to the North East next spring or fall, she has always wanted to see those season changes up there.

It ours...I own it. Great coach so far. We spent the night at the dealership. ..did an extensive PDI using one of the checklist found on this site. The techs went overboard helping us. This is our third purchase from this dealership......can't beat the experience.

If you don't mind me asking, what brand and style wheels are they? We are looking at some aluminum wheels for our new coach and that is the style I like.

Thanks

Thanks very much

I will have to get back to you on the wheels, I didn't look and didn't think to ask....they are a dealer upgrade that were already on the coach

I think if they are alcoa or accuride there should be a sticker or label somewhere on the wheel.

If alcoa, if they are their dura-brite line it will be a black printed label, if they are their polished line it is a blue print label.

I started shopping for some wheels last week and of course nobody has any in stock to compare or look at. They are pretty pricey to just order on a whim.


Thanks for the help!
