class a motorhome

I presently have a 5th wheel. I'm tired of the bouncing and rough ride on poor roads.
I am looking at Winnebago tour, Holiday Rambler Endeavor or similar class A. I have heard of the Winnebago basement air's not cooling is this a problem with them? I'm looking at 2005 thru 2008 any suggestions?

Our rig has basement air and we are happy with the way it performs, although we have not been in extremely hot weather. I like the fact that we do not have AC units on the roof, both from a weight standpoint and streamilining. We also don't have AC fan noise to compete with conversations in the main living area, a lot of times we can't even tell if the AC is on.

One drawback is the AC unit is directly under the bedroom, some people have problems sleeping when the AC is on, we don't.

Poor performance from basement air is sometimes caused by leaky air ducting.

I have a 2007 Tour and have not had any problems with the basement air. We have used it in the heat of the summer out west and it worked just fine.

The Tour has a great floor plan and it gets great reviews from all the owners.

Biggest issue to check is the rust that forms around the cargo bay doors.
