Good value at their price point, but not the best units out there. Check in at the FR forum, there is tons, good and bad there...

Hi EdieS - welcome to IRV2!

You'll find lots of opinions of the various coaches available. We looked at the Berkshire before settling on our Fleetwood Discovery. The Berkshire offers a lot of "content" for the price.

We chose the Discovery because of the extra horsepower and torque since we live in the mountains in Colorado. We liked the layout in the Berkshire, but I will say that the quality appeared not to be quite as good as the Discovery.

The latest review in Motorhome Magazine had good words to say about their newest coach:

Hope that helps!
