While that's a useable coach the single propane furnace does limit its winter use somewhat.  Oak is lighter inside

Nice coach! Not not to down play the 270s, but. 295s have 3 battery's, 2propane furnaces, and bus style bay doors. The 320 has aqua hot, and 194 gal fule tank, and 450 hp as well. Just some considerations. Just depends on your wants and needs.

Does anyone know anything about this coach, "what people do with the coach means more than the age or mileage" and wondered if anyone has any history (first hand or rumored) would appreciate the...

My wife and I have been shopping Foretravels for about a year. We looked at this coach at MOT last week. Chassis Rust appeared to be very noticeable I assume because of its use in the northern US and Canada; Coach looked great however the chassis...

I had these features on a two of our coaches. Besides being kind of nifty they can also be pretty annoying. That clock stares you in the face and I was always cranking the...

I don't know that coach. But when you find the right coach don't let the model stop you. We love our 270, 40' so has 2 furnaces. But we rarely use the rear one and we live in the NW. Bus style doors would be nice, oh my aching head, but you get...

Same great construction - that's what you're really after anyway.

On edit: I just looked at the photos, and it appears there's lots to like about that coach.  What else can you buy for $59k that's even close to that??

I love our bus-style doors,...

If that the one from Canada I have been told that there is a lot of rust underneath - not one you would want.
beautiful inside, but they would have to come way off the price to allow for the years of ice and salt damage.

When MOT cuts the price it's usually for a good reason.

There is usually a FoFum member there about every week to put eyeballs on a coach with a simple ask

- Small 200W electric heaters in basement, both sides of utility bay
- Three 4 inch fans and pushing air from living area to utilty and...
