Holiday Rambler Motor Home Quality?

Thinking about a 2011-2013 HR bunk model Class A gas motorhome. Any opinions on the quality of the build? Longevity?

Holiday Rambler is a well built MH. As to longevity that depends on how well it is taken care of. Good luck on your search.

From a Newmar user, I'd take that as a strong endorsement

Any opinions on the quality compared to Tiffen Allegro Open Road? (just the quality, not the service, as most seem to agree Tiffen can't be beat on service).

Before purchasing my last two used MHs, I used the RV Consumer Group Guide as a source of info in my decision. It is not the only criteria to use. But it certainly will help you decide which coaches should/or should not be considered. RV Consumer Group - We Rate RVs

I own a 2011 HR 34SBD (Bunk House) Admiral. 24K Chassis. Overall very happy with coach. Only real problem has been with the Lippert Hyd Leveling System-poor quality. Many coaches use this-not a HR issue. I've done lots of little things to improve coach-IMHO is probably one of the best built class A gas coaches out there. I looked for several years before I bought this unit. Let me know if you have any specific questions-

I bought a 1998 HR Endeavor last month. Over 100 miles and the wife says "isn't it neat how we settled into the hominess of this motorhome so quickly"? It's our 4th coach and the build quality though upper middle line coach is very solid.

For what it's worth, I have a couple of friends with HR 5th wheels, they seem to be quality units.

Holiday Rambler Motor Home Quality?

We bought our 2002 used last year about this time. Besides normal items failing for 11-12 years old, we have had nothing wrong. Quality is like that of other products/cars/trucks being bought used. Do your homework and really look at them. Our unit was well maintained and besides the interior looking new for 2002 ...this unit is sold and great to use. I think the key is their overall quality and making their own chassis.
