2015 Fleetwood Discovery vs. 2016 Thor Venetian

I've been looking at new DP's and these 2 have interested us. We like the floor plans, prices are similar and in budget, and the technical engine/transmission/chassis specs are nearly identical.

While looking around at various units, a dealer told me that the Fleetwood is much better, quoting here:

"The Quality in structure is much different... it would be like comparing apples and oranges... they both look nice and bright... however, there is a vast difference in having a Solid Foundation and Quality Structure. Please research the difference before you make a decision."

I HAVE been researching but I confess I am a newbie to RV's. What am I missing? Or is the salesperson just blowing smoke?

Thanks, Bill

2015 Fleetwood Discovery 40g

I purchased a 2015 Discovery in July of 2015 new. I am very happy with it. We just got back from a 5000 mile trip out west and didn't have any problems. I would highly recommend the Fleetwood product. The costumer service is great also.

Fleetwood Discovery 2015

15 Discovery with 13k miles. No major problems. Many minor. 9 mpg, pulling Accord. Shower small, only issue. Lots of room with 40E full wall slide. Would not waste $ on ext. warranty.

I am not familiar with the Thor. We've had our 2015 Discovery 40G since January and are very pleased with it it had 13K miles on it and its in very good shape.

Thor is a good brand so it's certainty worth looking at. From what I've read here they have been pretty good about standing behind their products when there were issues.

2015 Discovery 40E

We have a 2015 40E and love it. Bought new and very few issues. Nothing major. We did not look at Thor due to comments of poor quality of manufacture. Fleetwood has been very helpful with any questions.
