How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

We had a 2006 National Surfside 33B with 19.5 wheels. Now we are in a 2013 Bounder 35K with 22.5 wheels. I can tell you there definitely is a difference in the ride. The Bounder is not near as harsh on overpass expansion cracks. That said, I agree, the floor plan that fits your needs is the most important item. Everything else can be upgraded or changed at a later time. Enjoy your new ride, which ever you choose!

This coach is our 3 coach in 6 years. We started with 97 FW storm, 25', then we went to a 03 National Seabreeze, 30' but still not big enough so after going to several RV show we feel in love with this 2013 Bounder Classic. Told DW that this one was going to be our last coach. Wife really liked the floor plan and I like the color of the full body paint. This coach had all the options available, king bed, 2 wardrobes, 22.5 alloy wheels and more.

We also looked at the Bounder but she didn't like the floor plan as much as the 34M. I did go home and compare the spec and decided that for approx. 20K less with the Classic, we could do a lot of upgrades with that money.

Same size engine. I think the biggest thing was the tank sizes (holding tanks), the bounder had larger ones but then we thought, there was only 2 of us and a little Yorkie.

I think it boils down to what floor plan you like and what best for your needs.
