After 10 years of bieing trailer trash (Prowler 5th wheel) I finaly talked my wife into a motorhome. Bieng a multi generation trailer girl, this came with many battles including having to buy a “temporary” unit to try the idea out, on the promise of “if it did’nt work out, we could sell it losing minimal investment and buy a new trailer. I came across a 2nd owner (friend of the original owner) 40K mile 86 Bounder, with a floor plan acceptable to the ruler, a little worn, but exceptionally clean. It has upgraded airbags, shift kit, Headers, safe steer, but otherwise stock. Took our first several trips to the beach (5 miles from home) and found the coach very confortable. One year ago next week will mark the maiden extended trip (qaurtzsite AZ) ~300 miles each way. All was good, a little scwirlly when a big rig or monster diesel pusher passed or vice versa, but a pleasurable ride. Met the folks at Rally’s R Us in AZ who recomended the Helwig stabilizers. Oh man what a difference, I can drive in all wind conditions with one hand, relaxed. Put 7000 miles on her this year, and planning on a hole lot more 2006. With 2 kids both under the age of 4, we have re-thought the upgrade. Every place we go, we usually meet up with 2 or more friends all with different year, make and model coaches (mostly new ones), and to date we have all of the necessary items any of them do and often more, without the $500+ a month coach payment (good job Bounder). If your on the market for a great useable coach the 31K is a great place to look. Did I mention I have more basement storage than my buddies 2006 34ft Bounder, than my Dads 36Ft Foretravel, I get 2 full size 7ft banquet tables plus lawn chairs in one of the cross throughs. What a great coach! We decided were going to run her until she gives up, for fear of not being satisfied with the comparisons of any of the new coaches.
