Need Your Opinion on Berkshire RV

I need a little help. We are looking at a new Forest River Berkshire but I know nothing about them and know no one who has one. Are they a well built RV. Looking at 40 ft DP. Would like to know what you think or know about them.
Thanks for the help.

Help me understand this statement? Any new diesel motorhome is going to use DEF. Helps with keeping the air clean and is minimal time and expense to use.

I have a Berkshire 390RB. I love it. I think it's a well made coach with great features for a reasonable price. I have only had mine for 7 months so no experience long term but so far it's been fantastic.

We have a 2008 Berkshire and love it.... There isn't another coach out there that will give you a better "bang for your buck".... A MAJOR plus is the customer support you will get from the factory service guys... They are the best... Absolutely a fantastic coach.....

The Tiffin Breeze has a Navistar V8 and does not use DEF. Cummins engines do.

My 2008 Berk has a Mercedes diesel which doesn't require DEF.... I believe they started requiring DEF in 2010.....
