What do you think?

i like the floor plan of Bounder 33c and Challenger gt. What do you all think of these floor plans and the quality of the manufacturers? Any other class A with that style of "homey" feeling?

We spent alot of time looking at all the different manufacturers, both on line, and in person. One good thing to do is go on the IRV2 forums for each brand you are considering. Read what people are saying about their MH's as far as quality, What problems they had to deal with, how they were treated by the dealer, how they were treated by the manufacturer customer service, how long they waited for repairs, what kind of deal they got ect. Just read the complete threads and do not necessarily ask questions, but will see some people complain about minor things while others have major issues. You will definately get a feel for the type quality you want to buy. Then go look and drive all that you can, and you will feel what's right for you and your budget.

We ended up with the Newmar this way and we are so glad we did our research as we ended up with what works best for us and a quality MH( based on what is important to us). We really didn't pay that much more for ours and have had it for about 8 months now with a very few minor issues that were taken care of while we waited/watched them work on it. You will read horror stories where some peoples MH's have been in the shop for weeks if not months with no resolution. Quality is in the mind of the beholder, for some it's price, for some it's not having problems to fix, for some ease of purchase/location/financing ect. You will be spending alot of money and you can get both quality and price if you do your research.

As for floorplan we love ours, it has the bath and a half, three tv's, a fireplace and is very comfortable, with both the drive and living in it while camping. Good luck on your search and remember looking for one is half the fun, it took us two years and we changed our minds a few times based on what I learned on this site, as well as looking in person.

The Palazzo 35.1 is very similar in floor plan to the Bounder 33c.

I am sure Thor builds some good RVs. BUT! Would I take a chance with bad posts on the forums? NO!!!! Many other manufactures out there. Why take a chance and rolling the dice? I never won in Vegas. Thor needs to really work on their products. RVers say Thor stands behind products and repairs them. That is great to hear. But how about better design and quality control? Then they wouldn't need a lot of warranty repairs. If a customer has to go back more than once for slide repair I would suspect a design problem not just a minor problem. JMHO.
