The Best for the Beasts
Recently retired corrections officers Kathy and Trenton Brewton are upgrading to a larger Class A coach with more horsepower and extra living space. They arrive at Lazydays in Tampa and meet with RV expert Anthony Smith to find out if they can get everything they want with their $250,000 budget. Anthony takes the Brewtons to see the $303,000 2015 Fleetwood Discovery, and it makes a great first impression. Trenton loves the spacious shower and 380 horsepower engine. But Kathy prefers more closet space and wishes the unit came with bunk beds. Next, they look at the 2015 Winnebago Forza priced within their budget at $230,000. Kathy loves the fireplace, bunk beds and ample storage space in the bedroom. But Trenton thinks the shower space is a tight squeeze and isn't happy with the 340 horsepower engine.
In Tucson empty nesters Joe and Bonnie Stevens just sold off their internet business and are ready to cash in on the RV lifestyle. The Stevens have a budget of $600,000 and want to purchase a Class A coach with the ultimate luxury package. They arrive at Lazydays where they're paired up with RV expert Joe Mathews. First, Joe takes the Stevens to see the 2015 American Coach Revolution priced at $408,000. They love the spacious interior and sleek design features. And the induction cooktop in the kitchen gives Bonnie the feeling of home. But the bathroom doesn't have a double vanity so it may be a deal breaker. So Joe takes the Stevens to look at the 2015 Entegra Cornerstone. The kitchen has the pullout counter Bonnie wanted along with the double vanity. But at a cost of $638,347 - Joe doesn't seem too keen on going over budget.
International equestrian clinician Caroline Rider and her husband Kurt Beste are shopping for a spacious trailer for their horse training business. They need a trailer with space for four horses and comfortable living quarters that fits within their $200,000 budget. They arrive at the Lazydays in Tampa and meet up with RV expert Chris Mullis. Chris takes them to see the 2008 4-Star Trailer, priced under-budget at $85,000. Caroline loves the beautiful copper and leather accents. Kurt loves the design touches in the bathroom. But they were disappointed the trailer only had 3 stalls in back. So Chris decides to show the couple the 2010 Foretravel Conversions Twister priced at $130,000. Kurt and Caroline love the high-end, spacious interior. The trailer also comes equipped with the 4 stalls they need and the added bonus of a camera feature so they can monitor the horses anytime. But all this luxury and convenience comes with a catch. They would have to upgrade to a truck with higher tow capacity, pushing the total cost to $235,000 if they decide to upgrade to the truck and trailer package.
Kathy and Trenton Brewton have a tough decision to make. After they discuss what settling into retirement means, the couple decides to treat themselves and pick the Fleetwood Discovery. Over in Tucson, Joe and Bonnie Stevens are weighing the pros and cons of the Revolution versus the Cornerstone Entegra. In the end, they decide to purchase the Entegra because it has the best, high-end features. Caroline Rider and Kurt Beste really love all the amenities in the Foretravel Conversion Twister. But it requires spending more than they intended. Overall, there was only one option that has everything they need, so Caroline and Kurt pick the Twister.
