Diesel pusher advice in rainy setting - who has the best seals?

We live in Oregon and use our coach year-round. As you can imagine, that means 8 months of rain. Having a coach that is well sealed and designed for wet environments is important as we are looking for our next coach. Looking for advice from other web feet travelers....what coaches do you believe are sealed tight and ready for the rain and which brands should we avoid?

I don't think any brand is any better then the other until you get into the very expensive top of the line personally built coaches. I've meant all kinds of owners that have had good luck and bad luck on every brand. So unless you are going to spend $750K or more, and I'm not sure that will be enough, then just hope you get lucky on the one you buy.

When we were looking I noticed most of the slide seals, windows, and what not all look like they are off the shelf, and manufactured by a 3rd party. To be honest I think they all buy from the same place. My guess is if you keep up the maintenance it probably won't matter if the rig cost $1 or $1,000,000 plus.
