I've been looking at and researching motorhomes trying to gather information prior to purchasing. Does anyone on this forum have experience with Rexhall motorhomes that they would be willing to share. I like some of their floorplans particularly like the full size tub in the GT395QB.

jstlookin, welcome to our website and forums. The wife and I had a 95 or 96 (I can't remember) Rexhall Aerbus on a Ford chassis. We had no problems with our coach but from what I have heard they had good years and bad years of quality. They have always been well thought out floor plans and ours was balance well on weight. Will you full timing in it?

jstlookin,

Remember-- you will have only 10 gals, or so, of hot water.

I guess some one can bring a tea kettle full of hot water to supplement your "soaking" time ,

RV Wizard,
I retire in a year after returning from Iraq and my wife and I plan to fulltime it at least for a while to see if the lifestyle suits us. I'm looking for a motorhome that will hopefully be somewhat trouble free.

Max,
Not sure what you mean about 10 gallons of hot water. I thought most water heaters in MHs were 6 or 10 gallons.

Scott.

Hello Scott,

I am impressed with what I see on the Rexall website but have to admit I have little real life experience with their product line. Just make sure you get the Propane RV 500 Continuous Hot Water Heater option with the tub. After the DW hits the Jaquzzi shower, a 100 gallon water heater is in trouble. A continuous flow heater may eat up some gas but will have no trouble filling the tub with hot water.

jstlookin,

Suggest you contact one or more of the Rexhall clubs to get in touch with someone who has a late model or contact the factory and ask for referrals.

Personally, I've had excellent service from my 1997 and have met many other satisfied Rexhall owners as well.

Haven't met anyone with a late model but I've been to the factory in Lancaster and checked out some of the new units there. The factory is clean and modern and efficient looking, just like the coaches.

Rexhall has always been known for unique floor plans. In this market environment especially, you should be able to visit the factory and have them build a customized floor plan with whatever features you prefer.

Good luck with your purchase.

Unfortunately, many of the late model Rexhalls we take in trade have so many issues we end up wholesaling them after our service inspections. Our purchasing department will not buy them. I really like many of their floorplans, but I would not own one after seeing the problems and speaking with our service technicians.

Not sure which Rexhalls kampingkeith has been encountering. My 2000 Rose Air has NOT had such issues. We have "half-timed" in it for 9 years and 100,000 miles. I have attended dozens of Rexhall Owner Rallys and have not heard of systemic problems. I met a couple of owners who complained of problems with the 39' Rose Air Diesel units, however I also know several who are happy with those same units.
My view is that importance is (1) floor plan, (2) condition, (3) absence of water damage, (4)a wheelbase of 50% or more of the total length. ANY dealer/brand may not be here tomorrow. Same goes for the components installed. But replacements will always be available from someone; the chassis is just a truck and a garage that can fix it will be found most places. The carpet, couch, and chairs will wear out first. Some units are price/quality targeted as "vacation" units and will be less durable for full time use.
The reality is that there is someone fulltiming in every make and model on the market (see the most important criteria above).
I have RV'd for over 40 years and about 400,000 miles. Last summer we looked at replacing our Rexhall Rose Air, but couldn't find anything, new or used, we liked better.

Could you elaborate somewhat on the "issues" you mention in your post as it would be helpful to those considering the purchase of Rexhall Products.

I personally have yet to meet a dissatisfied Rexhall owner.

Thanks
