Advice on a New Coach

I'm in the market for a new coach. This will be my fourth coach and I'm looking for Quality, Support, Advanced Technology and Great Service. I think I have it narrowed down to either Newmar (King Aire, Essex or London Aire) or Foretravel Realm. Can any one give me any insight or suggestions from previous experiences?

I'm impressed with the Realm and if I lived in Texas it would be on my very short list. My concern is that other than the factory in Nacogdoches, where do you go to get house service during the warranty period?

If you can afford a Foretravel, why not also look at a Marathon?

There are several places besides Nacogdoches that can assist with foretravel. They will give you a list. Plus alot of the stuff that tends to fall apart, can be handled by a good certified rv tech.

Take look at Entegra Coach. Many owners believe they provide the best after sale customer service in the industry.

I've always really liked Newell and Bluebird/Wanderlodge coaches in the upper echelon of manufacturers, in addition to the ones mentioned.

Those are all very nice coaches. However, in this day and age, it seems all coaches are fraught with problems, some minor some major. Regardless of the money aspect, I'd look for a coach, those makes if you like, that is a year or two old...any hopefully have the bugs worked out.
