Manufacturers Food Chain

Quick question: where did the 39S Discovery lie in the Fleetwood hierarchy in 2004?

Also, does anyone know of a good site one could use for research that lists which models fall where in various manufacturers product lines? It's maddening difficult to sift through brochure archives of different years researching used coaches?

Thanks much,

When I purchased two used MHs, I used the RV Consumer Group Guide as one of the benchmarks in my decision. It helped me decide if a model was worth pursuing or not.

Unfortunately only you can decide what you want or like. No "research" site can give you that information. Only you can walk thru each and every RV you are thinking about to see the storage or if it fits you. No one else can help with that.

I'm not sure why that info is important, but in 2004 the Discovery was pretty much the mid-entry in Fleetwoods diesel family. Bounder and Expedition were below it in trim & amenities, while Excursion/Providence ranked above it. And Fleetwood's entire American Coach family of models ranked above all of those.

Generally, the starting MSRP will tell you where the brand ranks.

It seems tome it is far more important to find the brands that have floor plans and amenities you like and then decide what price level you can afford in that group. The models that were originally higher priced generally have more features and better quality under the covers than the cheaper ones, even if they have the same visible "bling" items. You can view MSRP ranges for older models in the NADA.com RV Guide.
