Too many choices

So we are about to purchase our first RV. We are looking at a 2013 Allegro Open Road 35ft and a 2011 Coachman Cross Country 40ft. Family of 5. Our first trip is going to be from Florida to Seattle this summer. Not really looking for a diesel is better than gas discussion, really looking at this from a quality point of view and which one is really better around Seattle. Thanks for your input.

I don't know exactly what your planning is, but in general I think with five on board the extra 5 ft can make a difference. I would also note that a family of five can put a lot wear n tear on a coach. To forestall rapid deterioration you buy as high a quality as you can. Quality lasts.

I travel with 5... GF, Son (16), Daughters (13 & 14) and me...

We have a Sunstar 35F... I guess that means it's about a 35-36ft rig... We have traveled from WI to Yellowstone and WI to Williamsburg and it was plenty of room for all of us..

My personal opinion... I'd go with the Tiffin... I think they're a better built unit..

Good luck
