We Need Your Advice Please

My lovely wife and I just retired and ready to stop camping in our two person tent. We are looking at 34 foot Journeys from 2009 or 2010. Nice size with good amenities and like the diesel pusher. Not interested in a gas coach.

Any of you nice folks who have owned one - please tell us if this is the right direction or should we be looking at other coaches?

Thanks very much
Liz and Bruce

Newmar is another well built coach.
We considered one before buying our Journey 36'.
Sure don't seem like we have had it a month now.

We've had our Journey for many years now and enjoy it. Just got back from a weeks trip to northern Wisconsin.

Hi Guys
We have a 2013 36M and after getting the full walls slide wall deamons
fixed we love it. Just completed a 27 state 8000 mil trip and never had a hard time finding a parking place due to size and never felt cramped. If you stick with Winnebago,Tiffen or Newmar I thank if you find the floor plan you like you should by ok.

Thank you all for your comments and advice.

Hi Journey Cat - Thanks for offer to sell your unit. We are looking for something a bit newer. Good Luck

lizandbruce : if the sellers have all the paperwork from maintaining/servicing the RV that may save you from having to going thru all the replacement of filters and fluids in the near term. This can really add up. Also check the tires to be sure they are not original. The life of tires is not always based on mileage but amount of years they have been on RV....wife and I have only had our 2006 Journey since May, but it is a beautiful coach that appears to be well built. Good luck in acquiring your "baby".

i have an '09 34Y, and think it is a superior unit to the '10. Mainly because the transmission is a 3000 vs the 2500 in the '10. Towing and increased hp hurts the smaller transmissions. Standard on the '09 was the aluminum wheels too.
Mine is currently for sale, will definitely regret selling, but want to see what the 45' coaches are like. Have kept this RV is the best shape possible, all records, and logs for everything done. Please let me know if you are interested. here's the link: https://www.rvt.com/Winnebago-Journe...92580-UX195587

We bought a new 2011 34y in 2013. We have put 26,000 miles on it and love it as much today as we did when we bought it.
