Class A diesel pusher for fulltiming

Have you ever heard of a DP Class A coach that was manufactured to be used for full time living and traveling

Are you asking what added features will help make a coach better for full time living. Like the others have said, most if not all could be full time homes

I hope this means that I am not mis-using our Mountain Aire by full-timing in it year round...

Are you asking about HUD requirements for a permanent structure? If so, motorhomes are exempt.

My present CC is rated for full time use, the previous '02 DSDP wasn't.

I think the basic answer is.....as the level of coach quality goes up, so does the level of fulltime livability. If you buy a $10K trailer, it will have furniture that is only designed to be used for temporary living. Many RV's will state that right in their manual.

When you get into the more expensive RV's, they start using more home type, quality products, like leather furniture and cooking appliances. A prime example would be residential refers.

Not hardly. Nearly all have build quality only to sustain an annual vacation and occasional weekend camping trips. I drove mine 25,000 miles last year and something was always falling apart.

One of these is a Country Coach Dynomax structure the other is a Prevost. The difference us the Prevost is stainless steel. The Dynomax is high strength steel

There are many DP's from quality manufacturers that are suitable for fulltiming. Look at people like the RV Geeks who have been fulltiming in a 2005 Newmar Mountainaire for 13 years. Their coach has been very well maintained, looks great and is still going strong.

All RV are used by full timers. Of course the more it's used the more things break.
This year on our 41' DP, the water pump, ice maker, hot water heater went out in the over 10k miles driven as mostly full timers. Then there's the 25 minor problems. I'm glad I can fix most things.
