High-end Class A Motorhomes

I have found a few very high-end Class A RVs like Newell, Prevost, and companies that use the Prevost to build custom motorhomes. While we'll never be able to own one of these new or used, I find them fascinating to look at and read about. I'd like to ask for help developing a list of current high-end Class A companies. As we travel, it could be quite the treat to stop, look, and perhaps take a tour. If you can help me, thank you in advance.

You can put Foretravel on that list since they're up above a million now days. Mine is 16 years old and went for a half million n the day. Thank god for well built and maintained coaches that depreciate faster than they wear out. If you're around Nacagdoches, Tex, stop in for a factory tour

Top of The Food Chains
-Prevost Based modifiers
-Newell

One Rung Below
-Foretravel

One and a Half Rung Below
-Newmar (The two models.)
-Entegra (Top Model)
-Foretravel's Spartan Based Realm

Yet Unknown Position
-Country Coach (If Winnebago starts them back up.)

Please note you said current, and thus many other excellent coaches are not mentioned, as their factories are not available for touring. And of course, opinions will vary!

And as far as not being able to afford a Prevost. If you do not need a slide, older well cared for units can be found a pretty good value!

Best,
Smitty

Millenium in Florida, and Liberty in Chicago are both ultra high end Prevost converters.

You can add American Coach to the "near luxury" (1.5 rung) class. New American Eagles are pushing $1M. Even the American Tradition is about $600k

The Prevost web site lists these converters:
Where to Buy | Prevost
Liberty
Marathon
Millenium
Featherlite

MCI (Motor Coach Industries) is another luxury bus chassis builder. There may be still a few outfits making motorhomes on the MCI chassis. At one time there were several and you still see them on the road.

My wife does estate planning for people who buy RVs like this out of their pocket change. It's a much different world than we live in.
