    We were having a strange discussion the other night! Eventually our beloved Swift Sundance is going to come to the end of her useful life, and we will have to bid her fair well. So we were discussuing (totally hypothetically of course). If money were no object, what we would get as a replacement.
    Our rules are simple, must have overcab bed, and must be a coachbuilt, and must be more luxurious than what we have :D. Other than that anything goes.
    We had a lot of searching on the internet, and we were quite disappointed. Most offerings seem to be similar to what we already have. So, for a bit of fun, over to you guys, and as I said, biased opinions are totally welcome (probably mandatory) :D What's the best motorhome to upgrade to :D

    Hymer A class most have drop down beds we had two coach builts previously and now an Exsis and love it the cab is different but you soon get used to driving it and there is more lounging space(y)(y)(y)(y);)
    Blast enough?;)

    I would so love that, but perhaps another condition to the list: Not fictional! :D

    I love the auto correct, and yes, the bias is good. We did like the look of the interior of the Hymer A-Class, but we couldn't sell the drop down to daughter, she likes overcab :-(

    Blasted Auto correct I usually look before pressing the button.
    They are massive and comfy and are still quite a way up(y)but I know it's like a den in the overcab isn't it?

    Ain't that the truth! I didn't believe it was possible to get so many fluffy toys up there! :(

    Same one as what @Jim has, not sure of the model but it is a Coachmen RV. It would be close to perfect for me. However the Hymer 584 comes a close second.

    I'd stick with an RV, not a large one, I'd stay under 30ft like ours is now so we can access most places.

    It's a lot of hard work. If I had money I would buy plots of land around Europe and the RV mentioned above and move constantly.

    I can build them myself but the thought of project managing someone else doing it sends shivers down my spine. they just wouldn't do it right :p

    You're just like me aren't you? Happy at the concept of someone else doing the job, but then not happy that they'll do it properly! :D
