Is the 33d excursion the best 34' and under money can buy new???

IS THERE ANY BETTER.....
IT seems they are the most powerfull (lbs per tq & hp)

best riding, most towing rated, comes with 22.5 aluminum wheels, one piece windshield, drop down front overhead bead.. with or with out res fridge (we chose w/o) highest rated chassis from freightliner 35,000 lbs


wifes says I can't find anything better than what she picked , and that I could buy something better if I find it....

so the new easter egg hunt is on

I looked up the floor plan for the 2015 33D. It only has one sofa, then the other seating options are to use the driver and passenger seats. I guess someone could sit at the dinette, just not me.

Our moho has a similar floor plan, but there is an additional recliner opposite the sofa. Not sure about the rest of you, but we seldom have used the driver or passenger seats unless guests drop in for a drink. Are there other options I missed on the FW site? One sofa and no other chairs seems to be a bit short to me.

Our moho is only 33' in length, but we love the size. The 33D looks great, just want another recliner or two. Maybe a euro chair would fit somewhere?

I guess it depends on your needs. If its too small or too big its not the best buy.
If you haven't bought it yet, do a search. I saw a thread, (can't remember name but the new owner had a gas coach before this new Excursion, and he complained about it being underpowered and a bad ride.
One mans treasure....

How much of an advantage is that really? More sealing problems relating to frame flexing. Also, replacing a damaged one-piece windshield would likely cost more than half of a two-piece. The visual impairment of a 3 inch wide center support is minimal.

I agree... but now everyone dates the coach as "AN oLDER" ONE..

EVEN SEEN WHERE PEOPLE HERE WERE TRYIN TO CHANGE TO THE ONE PIECE...SAID THE STRIP BLOCKED THEIR VISION....


I DROVE front engine dragsters... little strip never bothered me...

I think they all suck... greatly because the chassis builders and coach builders are not the same company...

I don't any coach goes out with the suspension tuned to its best performance..
one exception....allegro tiffin... they are adjusting the suspension and installing sumo springs...

when they seen the huge huge benefit to the stability and ride controll
