Some Beaver Patriots In 2007 Are Okay

The best Beaver, IMO, is the 2006 Patriot Thunder and Marquis (built on the Roadmaster "S" chassis) with the pre-emissions C13 engine, or the earlier models (2002-2005) built on the Roadmaster M-Series chassis.
I have a 2007 Patriot Thunder Winchester III with the preferred pre-emissions KCB Cat C-13. In other words, they plugged a end-of-year 2006 engine into the 2007 Beaver.

It was for sale until the start of this year's season with little interest; I suspect the misunderstanding around which engines are in which models played a part in it not selling.

Frankly, I like the Country Coaches a little better; that's even coming from a lucky Patriot owner with zero delamination inside, no paint checking either.

As far as value goes, mine will probably fetch not much more than $160K with fresh tires and batteries, when it is re-marketed at the end of the season, even though it is garaged and in great shape.

We have a Country Coach. I donít think you can go wrong with either of the motor home brands.
