HOW TO SAVE LOTS OF MOOLAH ON AN RV!

We considered buying a newer model motorhome a couple of months ago.  Then we did the practical, realistic, down-to-earth consideration of comparing ADVANTAGES vs DISADVANTAGES, which to us would have either cost lots or saved a huge sum of money.  The egocentric side lost out and the practical and realistic side prevailed.

Home Sweet Motorhome
2007 40' Tiffin Allegro Bus
We decided sometime in 2006 to travel in a motorhome on a full-time basis and met all  the objections head-on, sold our home, contents, etc., and in October 2007, after much consideration, we purchased a new 2007 Tiffin Allegro Bus and drove away into the sunset.  Almost 9 years later we feel satisfied that most of our decisions have been positive as far as contributing to our level of comfort and healthy lifestyle for full timing at this stage of our lives.

Our blog has a tab called "COACH UPGRADES" (Interior and Exterior) which has changed over the years, and for that reason we say we no longer have a 2007 Tiffin Allegro Bus.  It is now somewhere between a 2007 - 2016 Bus, with lots of new bells and whistles and a multitude of goodies we like to call "ACCESSORIZING".  

Here are a few pictures of some of our "Accessories" that we've added to our coach over the last couple of years. We've met several fine craftsmen in Red Bay and Vina, AL that have made these modifications to our coach.  The work they have done has been exemplary and we can recommend them should you be interested.

Mood Lighting over Front slides
Whirlpool Residential Refrigerator
New Exterior Lettering and Summit Stainless Steel Accents
Lumbar Support in Driver's Seat, 40" Samsung TV,
2009 Console Cover
Dishwasher to match cherry cabinetry
USB Ports, Solid Surface Trim (to prevent wicking), MCD
Shades, Cherry Shelf under Pax Window (for Phone, Glasses, etc)
Several other key items that have definitely added to our comfort are: 
  • Awning over outside bathroom window
  • Vented Microwave/Convection to Outside
  • Added Cherry Credenza in back of Driver's Side
  • Magnum Pure Sine Wave Inverter
  • Lifeline Batteries
  • Restructured some of the cherry cabinets and drawers for more efficient organization 
  • LED lights installed inside and outside of coach
We decided to keep our comfortable coach, pay it off, and save lots of moolah.
NOW YOU'RE TALKIN'!!
