price-wise they are not much difference for used; not sure which year/model you are comparing with though. you can always find one with decent shape and good price nowadays.

when i was shopping around at the time, i spent a lot of time reading and test driving. i was convinced by cc's chassis, interior layout and workmanship. a big selling point - starting from 2000 cc chassis has ifs (independent front suspension) on all its model lineup (allure and up), which makes a big difference when making turns. i'd recommend to buy one with ifs no matter whichever make/model you are buying; don't think many other makes having it though. (by the way, fleetwood revolution appears to be having some issues, see here Fleetwood Revolution Problem After Problem).

I think if you look around enough ("enough" being the key word here) you should be able to find a real jewel out there. I would only look at coaches that are still being manufactured though, and not the ones whose manufacturing companies went broke and were re-opened as parts and service organizations.

Definitly would put Itasca right at the top. We are biased because we have an Ellipse 42GD and think it is the best!

Smile The Best

Well thatís a good question

I just purchased a new 2013 Winnebago 36M Journey from the Large Dealer

Here in Tampa Lazydays. I really have to say that after two months of living

With my coach that Winnebago has a good product. As with any RV from pop

up to the 2 million Dollar Bus conversions you have bugs to work out.

When I talk to other owners During My time at the dealer that sells all type

of RVís in a large quantity my complaintsí Seem trivial (although still will

push to get them fixed).


I have looked it over from bumper to bumper and like what I have seen.

I have heard it Said that Engineers, Pilots, People who want to know how it

works And how itís built buy Winnebagoís. When it comes to Manuals and

parts list to All the diagrams of systems you wonít find a better support from

the Manufacturer.


Floor plans and the feeling you get when you walk in to your unit make are

always A good place to start.Then whatís behind the glitz and glamour should

always help Push you to make the purchase


Enjoy The Trip
Rick From FLA

Fleetwood Discovery is a nice coach, ours is a 2006 with almost 30000 miles and is doing great. I like the floor plan and hubby likes the driving . Not a lot of whistle and bells but enough for me. Nice comfortable ride, fuel not to bad, great floor plan, so far no issues. We have owned it for 1 year and 8 months, would buy another one. I really like the outside kitchen and entertainment area. Just MHO check out the Fleetwood Discovery.

I cannot believe that no one mentioned Bluebird. The OP did not say if he was looking for units still manufactured or not. Alfa should never be mentioned when the subject line is "best". They were and are undoubtedly the worst DP ever manufactured. The Skoda of motorhomes.

Country Coach, We have one and we love it. But unfortunately Country Coach has been out of business for several years.

Well, I guess I will through my hat in this ring!
I am definately bias on my choice!
Deb and I spent 3 years looking for our Diesel Pusher, it is our first rv and all I could think was go with my gut and get a big coach with all the amenites I liked as we looked around we kept coming back to the Fleetwood Discovery 40X. I am giving you the model number because that is by far in my opinion the greatest layout I have ever seen in a motorcoach!
From the great layout to the outside kitchen and entertainment system to the huge bathroom and monster living room I LOVE MY COACH!!

Did I miss something here? OP needs to set parameters. What price? What age? What amenities?

This is so open ended. Many models had bad years. Many models changed. Many out of business. Many beyond the price point affordability of a lot of people.

Need some help so we can help.

We have been "on the road" either full time or part time due to work going back to 1969....and so we have had a lot of pickup camper, ocean boats, motor homes and trailers. We have had 6 diesel pusher class A. What we have discovered is that the vast majority of buyers walk into several MH and look around....they see the living area then start talking price....in the end it often comes down to how long, for how much, and what is the monthly payment.....
We have taken a different track...We write down a list of "MUST BE"....that is It must be so many feet long, size of motor, type of brakes, slide outs, tire size, air bags, and on and on.....most of this stuff is due to the fact that a 35 foot unit with a big generator and only two slide outs with a big motor to pull a Jeep over the Rockies then fit into a tight forest boondocking situation is more important than something that would work in an RV park....we have never had a washing machine dryer situation.....So having said all the "IT MUST BE" we then build a second list of "BE NICE" to have....and we list out the interior color, floor plan, sound system,......Then we reckon out what we can pay in cash....trade in requirement and then research the dealerships for a specific item
and make the deal....pay cash and that has always proven to the THE BEST MOTOR HOME EVER.....I do know that a person must own at least THREE of these critters before they full understand what they want, what is good and what is not so good....after three of them you find THE BEST ONE EVER
