Best 5 motorhome manufacturers?

Looking for a good used Diesel Pusher motorhome under $100,000, what would be the top 5 manufacturers to consider?

You're thinking used right?

Newmar would be on my list.
Monaco / Beaver
Foretravel (would be much older)
Winnie / Itasca
Forest River (berkshire)
Fleetwood (Rev or Discovery)
Country Coach

Quality on this forum is subject to personal opinions arrived at from both personal experience and hearsay. Look up what a coach sold for 15 years ago. If it was over $400,000 at that time, it is probably a good quality motorhome. I would put the Newell, Foretravel, Country Coach, Monaco, Navigator, and Beaver in the top six. Itasca, Winnebago, Fleetwood, and Forest River at a much lower bracket. Remember, I said it's all personal opinions.

The $100K Newell and Foretravel are on everyone's list - especially the gold fixtures.

It's hard to spend $100 K perfectly.

Fleetwood is owned by REV as is Amercan Coach but Fleetwood doesn't build American. I would include American coach also.

Right.
And Right again!

On Edit. Think Entegra.

Other than Prevost, Newell and Foretravel. Outside of those I'd look at older Travel Supreme/Entegra, Newmar, Alpine, Monaco, Country Coach or BlueBird.

You would be hard pressed to find a Newell, Prevost or Foretravel for $100K. Or an Entegra for that matter. But a Travel Supreme could be found at that price and that is the forerunner of Entegra.

I only have a gas MH myself and am not a DP expert, but along with Newell and Foretravel being on everyone's list, I notice that Tiffin is on no one's list. I was under the impression that Tiffin is pretty good and that they stand behind their vehicles well; is that impression wrong?

No you're not wrong which is why I am on my third Tiffin from the same excellent dealer. Most people think their's is the best, so I don't promote Tiffin unless asked.

I guess we'd both have to guess at how "old" a unit the OP is willing to go but he can get a "nice" Newell or Foretravel if willing to consider one earlier than a 2000 model year. Prevost maybe mid-1990 or earlier.
