I'm going to view the coach tonight. Can't wait. There would be exclamation points if it weren't for the fact that I'm under the weather and bone tired. :-D
My only real concern with this coach is carry capacity; ie. how much stuff I can pile into it once it's loaded with gas, propane, and water. This issue, more than anything else, is going to be the deal breaker or maker for me.
I toured a family friend's 30 footer this weekend, which convinced me that I want at least 35 feet and that I'm really not nuts about the pass-through bathrooms.
I've decided to apply for 'proper' RV financing as this could end up opening up extra options for me. I'm not looking to get the maximum amount of RV a lender is willing to give me, but rather to make sure I don't pass a great deal because I'm 5K short on cash.
Later this week, once I've had time to gather my thoughts about the Tiffin and calculate its carrying capacity, I'll contact two other sellers about their coaches, one a bus, the other a diesel pusher.
The fact that the Tiffin I'm seeing tonight is not a DP really bugs me, although knowing the carrying capacity might assuage some of these misgivings. I have to say that the Tiffin has been the only RV I've seen so far with a floor plan I can immediately recognize as being suitable for full-timing. Hopefully, its carrying capacity will be equal to its fantastic layout.
