RE: Motor coach with bunks recommendations for family

Thank you all for the info! I did notice that the THOR AcE reviews were not good at all. The last thing I want is for it to be in the shop all the time! So it seems that the general consensus is that the Winnebagos are the best quality for the money? Any other brands you recommend? I would say Winnebago and perhaps Georgetown only because Tiffin and Newmar don't seem to offer much in the way of bunk floorplans. Thor owns Tiffin now and Winnie owns Newmar anyway. Like Thor, I would probably pass over Coachmen and Jayco, but that's just my opinion. Winnie makes a pretty decent coach in terms of quality and fit and finish. Thor does have many other offerings besides the ACE. However even moving up the ladder to their mid tier offerings, I still find the quality sub-par to Winnie. But as with most things, you get what you pay for. The ACE and most other Thors are cheaper than other brands, so it goes back to how much and what you will use it for. Maybe you want to save some coin and get a cheaper RV. That's why there is a market for them. After all of the comments, I'm leaning towards winnebagos or even the georgetown; and am even looking at higher end models now like Newmars. From what it sounds liek though, I'd be better off even buying a 10 year old NEWMAR than brand new cheaper/lower build quality models. Is that a true statement? Seems like I could always upgrade different items on the interior to make it feel newer? THANKS AGAIN for all the input! IF you can find a clean used unit that has been properly maintained, then I'd agree you might get better quality going with something built before the last several years. Carefully ensure the roof and seams have been maintained, and that there has been no water intrusion, delamination, etc. Also ask to see maintenance records for the drivetrain/chassis, and ensure the tires, even if tread looks good, aren't too old (less than 5 years ideally) by checking the DOT codes on the sidewalls. If the maintenance checks out, then upgrading outdated decor can actually be enjoyable, and you will get something of good quality that is personalized to your tastes.

RE: Motor coach with bunks recommendations for family

Many manufacturers of gas class A motorhomes have offered models with bunk floorplans over the past 10-15 years. Take a look at the Winnebago Vista 35B. It’s nice in that it has a bath and a half. Your daughters are getting to an age where you will appreciate that. There are usually used ones available well within your price range.

RE: Fall Creek Falls, Tennessee

I think you’ll want to come up TN 111 and enter the park through the South entrance. I came in through the north entrance once and the road was very hilly and curvy. South entrance is a much easier drive.

RE: Can I rent your RV?

Politely say no, with the excuse that your insurance coverage won't allow it, and suggest she check out (or a similar site) to rent one.

RE: When to throw in the towel...

Quite a few years ago we were on a weekend trip to a state park to do some hiking, and it poured pretty much non-stop. My wife indicated we should just call it and head home, but I dug in and said "it's nice just being away from home, we can hang out and play games, etc etc.". Well, with the kids bored, and 6 of us crammed in the trailer, it was more misery than fun. But we stayed. And I can't tell you how many times in the years since my wife has mentioned "remember that time....". LOL. So the moral of the story is, you made the right call.
