This is a great thread ... as I'm in the same search pattern! I've narrowed down my purchase, which will occur by the end of this year, to "used" in the $200k-$250K range. I've narrowed down my choices to the following used manufacturers: Prevost XL-Liberty/Marathon/Royal ('01-'03); Foretravel-Phenix ('06-'08); Entegra Cornerstone ('10-'12); or Newmar Essex ('08-'10).
I think they all have Pros/Cons, but it seems like the shells of the Prevost are "still" in style and still look great after 12 years. For me, the chassis, suspension, and structure of the home itself (steel) are most important since floorplans can be changed/upgraded with any coach. When I look at these four essentials, that leaves it between the Prevost & Foretravel. I know Newell is an outstanding DP which would fit as well; however, I simply don't like their interiors, which are usually too "glitzy/shiny" for my taste.
Is there a good site for an "owners Prevost site" that I can glean information about things to look for if I decide to purchase a used Prevost?
