And, if you don't mind do you have any opinions on who produce low and high level? We obviously want to stay away from the low level and can't afford the high level producers. Lastly, I note that you have a 45 footer. What is your experience trying to get into state and national parks? Thank you for any thoughts you would like to offer.

Fiver=fifth wheel towable. Mid level coaches, you know I am sticking my neck out and exposing it to a guillotine! Here goes, JMHO! Fleetwood, Tiffin, Newmar, Winnebago, Holiday Rambler and Monoco which are in a holding pattern at the moment, they have been sold to ASV. ASV owns American Coach/Fleetwood. Low, Thor, Forrest River, again JMO!! High, Newell, Prevost, Foretravel, Newmar, American Coach, Entegra, Tiffin Zepher these manufactures are presently the most active industry wise. Of course the Newell,Prevost and Foretravel products are custom. At 44 feet we limited in a few state parks. However, with research, calling ahead and Google Earth you'll find most state parks easily accessible in the 40 foot range.

As I said, newbie. Many thanks for your opinion. It is good to know what the perceived competition is for the different manufacturers. Hoping others might be willing to stick their necks out. Thanks again for taking the time to help a newbie. Enjoy your weekend.

Regards,
OWV

Did you ever settle on a purchase? If so, what did you buy and if it was a Tuscany how do you like it?

The original post was written last August when we were researching what to buy. We went to the Hershey show with the intent of only doing due diligence with the thought that we would order a coach at the Tampa show. We quickly narrowed our choices to Newmar, Tiffin, Itasca and Entegra. and came to the conclusion that we wouldn't gain much in the way of additional information by waiting until Tampa. I don't think we would have made a mistake with any of them but in the end we bought an Entegra: quality, craftsmanship, warranty, floor plan, reputation, etc. At the end of the day, IOHO, Entegra was and we think is still offering the best bang for the buck. I don't think anyone will go wrong with any of our final 4, but for sure no one will be disappointed if they buy and Entegra.

Agree, we went to Hershey and saw some very nice class A's. Nice to see them all in one place and be able to go back and forth to make detail comparisons.
