Default RV Shows

The more RV shows I go to the more I realize I made the right decision buying my bird. I have yet to see one I would rather have than my old bluebird. Well, there may have been one or two that I would have liked but, they were over a $1,000,000 so we won't count them.

Strongly agree - not only are the old Birds affordable they're also built much better. I was at an RV show a few months back. I see guest bathrooms are all the rage.

You have got to be kidding? Guest bathroom??? I've been in a number of higher end coaches over the winter and there wasn't one that was built as well as my 21 year old WB. There was a $2.25 million dollar Marathon coach I was in that was a lot fancier (slides everywhere, raised roof, etc), but built no better than the old bird.

Guest bathroom? My coach has a 2 person and 2 cat limit. I guess it would be a good place for a litter box.

Yep....I agree. They sure are proud of those new SOBs.

Gotta Have Big Rubber.......If it doesn't, don't waste your time looking.

Last show I went to in Atlanta a couple years ago, the outside kitchens were hot. It's always some kinda bait to keep you from really seeing what your getting.

Yes. i see a lot of guest bathrooms and outside kitchens. So many things look good to people at shows that don't know but, they don't work in real life. So many have walls that flex a whole lot. How can they possibly last? I was at a seminar today and they had a 2013 pull behind that was having a new roof put on! He was saying a factory he worked at built 40 5th wheels a day! I can imagine the quality of the build.
