We purchased the RV prior to retiring. We used it on short trips while still working. Once we retired we wintered in Florida and lived in it full time. In the summer we toured the country and always ended up near Reno Nevada to spend the rest of the summer with our 4 grandchildren and daughter. The coach is absolutely easier to drive and maneuver than a car. The ride is like floating on air, steering turning radious exceptional. We chose to pull an open car trailer purchased new and included in the sale. Two reasons you do not have the wear on your vehicle while traveling like if you flat tow or dolly tow. I can personally back the trailer up any where when needed and as far as needed. You cannot do that flat or dolly towing. While trailering 5000# car and trailer across country, you do not even know it is behind you due to the 400HP and torque of the Winnebago. Average fuel mileage with cruse set at 63 MPH 8.5 MPG. Best was 11.8 MPG crusing at 58 MPH on super flat stretches of interstate. We use 350 gallon of fuel Florida to Nevada 3000 mile trip fully loaded. The coach is advertised to sleep 4. When you sell your house and chose to live full time in the coach, there better be enough room. The coach is extremely spacious and we never feel closed in. The layout is perfect. The kitchen is up front great when traveling right behind the cockpit. Mid coach is a half bath with easy access wihle traveling. As full timers everything you own is stored in the coach. More than enough cabinet storage inside the coach and exceptional large amount of storage outside. We toured many coaches and chose Winnebago Meridian 40R. We think it is the best floor plan for our needs. The quality of this coach far exceeds the quality of other coaches that we have toured before our purchase. It is very upscaled for the price verses a top of the line expensive coach. Hope you can enjoy this coach as much as we have.
