Edinboro residents Melanie Baker, 37, and her husband, Andrew, 42, brought their two children to Thursday’s show to check out travel trailers and invariably ended up taking a tour of a 36-foot-long Coachmen Mirada Class A motorhome, priced at $114,094, from North East-based Ray Wakley’s Car Care & RV Center.
