'95 37' Luxor vs '97 36' monaco dynasty???

Going to look at the two subject MH tomorrow. Assume condition, price engine size and gen are the same is there anything regarding the mfg. name, reputation, quality of construction, or ??? that would swing the decision one way or another. One difference is the chassis. Winne Luxor is on Oshkosh chassis which is an "orphan" as I glean from the forums. The owner says the Monaco is on a freightliner chassis but according to the forum is probably mistaken as they were built on the roadmaster chassis. With everything else being similar I need thoughts on brand names, models involved and chassis to see if one comes out as a better choice. Or is the situation like Chevy versu Ford. Thanks

The Dynasty is built on a Roadmaster chassis that is a semi monocoque design and extremely strong. It remains one of the strongest in the industry. The Oshkosh became Freightliner a year or so after this coach was built. Both coaches were quality units but I would give the nod to the Dynasty if both have been well cared for.
