We have been fulltiming for a year and a half now. We got a diesel pusher which is the way to go if you want to go out west and climb mountains. Go for a 40 ft,. you need the room and also 4 slides for the most room possible. We got a 2006 holiday rambler and have had quite a few problems, but for the price it was o.k. Our friends bought that thor challenger 37ft, gas, and had a load of quality problems with it, thor is not a top brand, even though I love their floor plans, I went for the most quality for the buck. You will be in each others way no matter what one you buy, it is not a house. Look into a used diesel pusher, before you take the plunge.

It took longer than I thought for the anti-Thor attack...but there it is.
Thor is selling 1 out of every 5 RV's according to their stats. TMC is the merger of Damon and Four Winds after the recession...very good RV's as a foundation, and Thor is being very good about keeping up the good reputation IMHO.

You can drink the Kool-Aid and pay more, but Thor is going to offer a lot for the purchase dollar.

I agree that the 37KT is an awesome floorplan! Sorry, I have no experience with the Gulf Stream.

Why not ask the experts...Challenger owners? See: Thor Challenger Owners Unite!

Best luck
