"Best" is always subject to option!

Country Coach and Foretravel had 32-36' foot well thought of DP's. I did bump it to 36', though you may have a hard cutoff at 34', because that opens up a larger group of coaches. At 36', Alpines can be found, and Winnebago mad the Journey and Meridian in I believe 34'. A but less quality then the CC and Foretravel. I'd also prefer the Alpine Peak chassis, and depending on year, the quality of the Alpine should be nod above. (But, the Journey Meridian are well liked coaches by their owners, and a solid value.)

Fleetwood made many 36' DP's, but not sure about recent 34' units.

And I believe that Rexhall and Tripple E both had smaller DP's in some model years. Both are great bangs for the buck!

And of course, what matters - is the coach that you like.

And note, if you picked 34' due to campground limitations - I suspect that 90% + of the campgrounds sites that are limited to 34' and shorter, would hold a 36'!

Best of luck to you, and for sure, others will have more options for you to consider.

Selling the Alpine already? I'd have thought it would have at least lasted a couple of months.

I don't like the paint, and when I was looking most needed paint....
thinking about a repaint

. i stepped up on the price and broke my golden rule...better to find a coach at a cheeper price if you are gonna change every thing....carpet is like new... but green
and I don't like any of the floors so it's all being replaced monday...

i'm just more used to buy'n new I guess, and back stepping 12 yrs....

best riding and most power i've ever had and a pusher...

the new ones just have a more modern look

Why would the guy who seems to know everything even post a question to other forum users?

Do people get paid to post questions on iRV2?

actually, no,... I found out about this one here from aauummm,...

there's a lot of chassis's out there...journey did a 400 hp and so did country coach...

seems to me that there is a market for higher powered "REAL GOOD RIDING"
coaches out there..34' coach is huge to me where as someone always wants the biggest they can get..when we go rv'n we want get outside...

if I was gonna live in one... don't think they would ever make one that's too big...

seems like every thing in production is isb...
