How do you define QUALITY? Can't answer the question without a definition and clarification on quantitative or qualitative aspects of the term "quality".

Quality could mean -
Fancy fabrics, JDPowers fewest repairs, most features, appliances with least repairs, owner satisfaction (new, after a year), perception/feel vs measurable, etc....

BTW - Prevost is just a chassis/shell, not the RV. Did you mean to list the Prevost converters instead (Marathon, Liberty, Millennium, for example)?

You must know "best quality" is subjective. You have one million dollar plus coaches listed right in with those selling for a 100K. Not every one needs a million dollar coach. While it may heavier duty built, chances are it will have the same appliances inside. When it does develop a problem it will cost as much as some of the coaches you listed to repair it. Try classifying your coaches by selling price, you will get many more responses and opinions. Even then the chassis builder will influence much of the responses. Like Ford vs Chevy.

Recommend you re-list as to whether your referencing custom built or assembly line, as mentioned, dollar amount is a wide spread as listed above. Might help--

Best,

My opinion mirrors jojolou with the exception I would rate Newell over the Prevost.

Please specify a price range. In my book, Tiffin is the best and they give good service. They have coaches from around 100k to 400k. and I don't think they will go out of business soom.
