I am glad to report that this is not one. We will not be back to MD for a few years. We are in TX and working our way to WA through AZ and CA. I expect to be there in May.

When I travel east of the Mississippi I tend to white knuckle it. The further east you go the poorer the roads are and the more rude and aggressive the drivers are compared with the west. So, we will spend many happy days near the grand children for a few years and avoid the east coast.

Thanks the the info in any case. I will bookmark these folks for future reference.

Happy trails and many of them,
Rick

We are planning a western trip this summer so I will be able to experience firsthand the driving habits out there. Once you start driving a large coach you realize how many knuckleheads there are on the road. It seems to me FL is the worst - at least on the east coast south of the Mason Dixon line. When we were down there last month I could not believe the number of people weaving in and out of heavy traffic, cutting in front of you, ignoring stop signs, failure to use turn signals and finally riding the left hand lane.

In VA, once you get away from DC I have found drivers to be fairly courteous.

When you consider how many Quebec migrate south to FL in the winter you can understand why rudeness rules there. I must agree with you about the VA area. DC and Baltimore are a challenge but once a good distance outside the loops driving is not as bad. Enjoy your trip west. Just be aware of TX. The roads are fast and very noise. For some reason they use crushed rock as the final coat imbedded in tar oil. Broken windshields are common and the speed limit is 75 in some areas. I heard of one toll road being 85!

If you need service I can't recommend any except possible Happy Trails in the Rockwall, TX area (if I recall correctly). They are not Winne affiliated but do decent work.

Safe and happy travels,
Rick

Are you serious about paying 70 percent of MSRP? That is amazing, is that true?

What is the used market li8ke now? Is the economy soft and good RVs available or have things tightened up?

Thanks again!

We just upgraded from our 2006 Winnebago Aspect 26A to a 2014 Itasca Cambria 27K and we got about 20% off the MSRP. I don't think I could have got the dealer down another 10% but I suck at negotiating stuff like that.

On a related note, I know where there is a cherry used 2006 Winnebago Aspect 26A that you could pick up for a pretty good price too

Bought our new View Profile 24G today from The RV Corral in Eugene, OR. Got a decent (21 percent) discount and very nice service. They are good folks to deal with. Thanks to all of you for your advice to us. You really make us feel welcome!

Great news, Bill. Now, take the bag of information that comes with your coach home with you before you take delivery. Read it and ask questions from what you have learned. (I hope you mean you just closed the deal and not taken delivery) In any case, read the books. But, you did do your research and sought advise so I guess you are ahead of me on this suggestion?

I hope you have many happy trails with your RV and for many years to come.

Rick
