Most Luxurious Interior Gas MH??

In my ongoing search for a fulltime rig I was thinking how much would I actually be driving this rig. I figured 4 to 6 days a month. So why pay a lot more money for something that you won't drive that much. We want 3 or 4 slides for the most space inside.

So the question is what is the most luxurious gas motorhome on the market?

Not sure about "luxurious", but we REALLY like the homey feel of our Itasca Sunstar 35F.

We especially like the feeling of having a "master suite" with its own bathroom.. I know you are likely looking for "fit & finish" and probably "material" luxury.. but, it really works well for us, and I could see full timing it in our rig.

That being said... Having the diesel pusher would allow you to have a bigger rig (40', 43' & 45' footer), and as they say, you can never have enough space..

Hope my two cents helped !!

IMHO, The Fleetwood Southwind is the best, and yes, I am a Ford person. however I am stuck with a chevy chassis for my 87 Southwind, but when you buy used, you can't be as picky.

IMO, the Newmar Mountain Aire (MACA) has ALWAYS been the most luxurious gasser. Many were almost too heavy on the W22, but if you can find one a W24 chassis, I doubt you will find a better gasser.

If you want a NEW lux. gasser, the Canyon Star is the top of Newmar's lineup, and the Southwind is at the top of Fleetwood's lineup. Tiffin's Allegro open road is their only gasser, but I would not call it luxurious. It is a good, solid coach, but not lux. WBGO has the Adventurer and Suncruiser, and they certainly have a lux price on them.........

Just using this add as an example I actually have one and firmly believe it is the top of the line gas. You can no longer get anything new like them.

Just My Opinion…r0n…

I fulltime in a 2007 Mountain Aire 3991 on a W25.5 chassis. It is part of the 2007 Mountain Aire gasser family that also includes models 3978, 3990, 3992, and 3994. These large gas pullers are well constructed and nicely appointed. If you search for one of these models please note there were very few built by Newmar.

You can't go wrong with a Mountain Aire if you can find one slightly used. We are in ours at least 6 months of the year when snowbirding and it's great. Good luck in your search.

My Pace Arrow although not built any longer is pretty well up there. Corion counter tops and sink, Moen fixtures, 10 gal hot water, EMS, sleep number bed, washer/dryer, power awning and the list goes on. The coach has every option that Fleetwood ever offered in a gas coach. If they ever start building them again, I'd buy another.

New or Used

The Newmar's are nice but hard to find
Monaco Monarchs were also pretty spiffy but they too are hard to find.
Tiffin's are nice looking but have quality issues.
Beaver even made some gas coaches that had very nice fit and finish.
Winnebago Adventurer's are easy to find and have lot's of extras (fire places, large kitchens, etc) but aren't as nice with the fit and finish.

Bottom line is to pick the floor-plan that suits your need first, it doesn't matter how glorious the unit looks if the floor-plan sucks.

The floor plan is the biggest issue. We want the TV across from the seating.

We love our Adventurer 35P with the full wall slide on the drivers side and two more on the other side. Lots of room through out the coach when the slides are out and tv is in a good location.

Not to quibble, but…if you do 400 mile days thats ~2k miles per month. ~24k per year! The average is 5-7k per Year! Thats quite a bit of driving IMO.
