Help Me Decide

A Tale of Two RVs

As I inch closer to having the Insurance Company finally release the funds to get a replacement RV, it’s decision time. I decided to not order the same coach as I had last time. I am going with a different layout, where the main bathroom is in the front of the coach, the full width of the coach, plus it has a bathroom slide-out to make it even roomier.
