Windshield Wipeout

Antique dealers Jeff and Judy Schwartz are trading in their two-year-old coach for a larger, more luxurious model. With a whopping $500,000 budget, the couple meets up with Lazydays RV Expert Demond McKinley. First, Jeff & Judy look at the used, 2003 $389,000 Prevost Millenium, a luxury coach that typically retails for well over a million dollars when sold new. Inside it looks like a grand palace with marble floors and shower; granite countertops and hand engraved sink. When Judy notices the weathered looking kitchen cabinets, Demond decides to show them something more turnkey and takes them to look at the brand new Tiffin Zephyr, $67,000 over their price range. The Zephyr has tons of amenities and Jeff loves the rich feel but Judy wants to see other options that fit their budget. At $436,000, the Winnebago Grand Tour fits their price range but the small master bath may be a deal breaker. While vacationing in Alaska, Mother Nature pelted David and Kathyrn Blankenship's Class A coach with rocks, damaging the large windshield. They arrive at the Lazydays service center in Tampa and meet certified tech Michael Varga. It's an arduous task, but with the help of two other techs, Michael is able to carefully remove the 200-pound windshield without any additional damage or injuries. In a few hours the job is finished, and the Class A Coach is given new life with a brand new windshield. The Blankenships are very pleased with Michael's work and equally excited to get back on the road. Over in Tucson, the traveling vaudeville act, Carnival of Illusion, is in the market for a trailer with storage space for costumes and a large bed. Magicians Susan Eyed, Roland Sarlot and their show dog Harriet Houdini are paired with Lazydays RV Specialist Dan Walker. Dan shows them the Airstream Eddie Bauer, priced at $94,000. It's $1,000 shy of their $95,000 budget but Susan likes the roomy interior and storage space for costumes. But Roland wants to see a less expensive option so they look at the Airstream International, priced at $70,000. Roland thinks the grey interior matches his style but Susan thinks the model lacks storage space and isn't happy about the smaller bed. Demond has shown Jeff and Judy three luxury coach options, but only one had all of the amenities and updated furnishings. Jeff decides the "happy wife happy life" theory is the best way to go so they pick the $567,000 Tiffin Zephyr. When Roland starts leaning towards the Airstream International, Susan protests and they give the $94,000 Airstream Eddie Bauer a second look. This time the magicians have no illusions about the best choice for their traveling green room and buy the larger, Airstream Eddie Bauer.
