Factory Direct RVs

I've been following the thread on NEXUS RVs. It looks like a great product at a good price. Unfortunately they only make a 34~ft model, currently, I'm interested in a rig at close to 40ft.
Is anyone aware of other Factory Direct RV makers?

As for I know they are the only one. I did take a tour of NeXus factor. They are a small company produce about 5 units a day. They are known for their class C units. They only have been in Business for 4 are 5 years.

For the record, Lazy Daze sells direct, but their largest unit is a 31 foot Class C.

I just re read my OP, and realize I was missing some critical info, like what I was looking for.
The NeXus rig I'd be interested in is their A class. Their only currently available A is 34 ft. I was hoping for something around the 40ft mark.

Maybe Rexhall will build one for you.

Not a big manufacturer but had good quality.

I am always intrigued and very gratified, (heck, I'm a card-carrying Capitalist businessman), that people are absolutely willing to pay MSRP, and will even defend it as a good price.

Capitalism! Ya gotta love it!

I'm with you, I'd be interested to see an all electric 40 or 43 footer from Nexus with a tag.

It's funny, I remember a bit over a year ago one of the guys from Nexus put a video up on YouTube about how much safer C-class RVs were than A-class units. Granted it was all typical salesman BS, but it was amusing. Now they are making a class A, I wonder if they still push the "class C is better" mantra?

As far as their "factory direct pricing", I'm not too impressed. On their website it lists the base price as 189,900, but simple things like wet sanding and buffing the paint are additional. Take a look at everything that is considered "optional" (like the house batteries) and start adding it up to get the rig outfitted like the video. Suddenly you're right there with Fleetwood, Thor and Winnebago (amongst others).
Is their rig built or outfitted better for the price? Possibly, but it's too soon to tell.

Is this a bad thing? I really don't know and am asking the question earnestly.
Please educate me.

Thank you, this is the type of info I'm looking for. I'm trying to learn what I don't know.

I'm with Scatterbrain: where is the evidence that a Nexus quality is any better than anybody else? Or any less expensive once you compare apples to apples? So far those guys have demonstrated a great flair for salesmanship but I'm still waiting to see "the beef". Being named "best of the best" by some tv commentator doesn't strike me as proof of anything except looking pretty on tv. Naming a model the Bentley is a stroke of marketing genius, but that's about it.

Nexus uses the same construction techniques as anyone else, buys the same components, and pays industry standard wages to workers in the same region (Elkhart, IN) as many of the others. How did theirs get better or cheaper?
