The 2014 has the same amenities that the 2013 has but the XCS chassis is now fitted with an 8.9L ISL Cummins with 1150lbs of torque over the 8.3s 1050. 100 lbs is 100 lbs. There may be a ding in mileage, but when you are rolling at 8mpgs, the .3 less you will get is of little consequence. We drove a lot of "lesser" coaches than the Discovery line and if you want a nice coach in the low $200s, the Discovery is the way to go. Real wood inside, great chassis, nice tow ratings, few rattles, felt lined across the coach, king sized bed....list goes on and on. For the price point, it is a very good coach. And the 2014 is even nicer than the 2013s.......which is what I am basing my opinion on..and we live in Colorado and need the extra HP, so this was the best fit for the $$$

We love our '13 Discovery 40G. Wait.. I meant to say... LOVE!! The G is their bunkhouse model, so slightly different floor plan. This is our second coach & first Diesel. We're working out a few "new coach" bugs, but that's common and I wouldn't change a thing. The Discovery is a very high quality build, with an excellent assortment of offerings that you typically don't see until you spend much more $$. Fleetwood is a top-notch, very supportive company too. If you have problems, they WILL take care of you. Make a good relationship with your local dealer too, as that is always a good thing.

Thanks for the input. We have started to seriously consider a new Phaeton as we'll.
