Who makes the best Class A RV

I know this is a bit of a loaded question but I am thinking of upgrading my Winnebago adventurer. From a quality standpoint and resale value and popularity what are the best class a rv manufacturers in the 35-38 ft range? Would love to hear the opinions of all you veteran rv'ers. Thanks

You'll need to specify a price range and some other parameters or the answer might be a $2M Prevost!

Nope, Prevost does not make one that short.
Newmar Dutch Star @ 37' 11" is one of the shortest luxury MH's made today. There may be others, that's the only one I know about. Now if you consider a used luxury MH, go back about 10+ years and you'll find several brands that length.

LOL, I'll say that's a loaded question! ...what's the best car for resale, quality, and popularity? --Ford or Chevy?

I don't think you can go wrong staying with Winnebago as far as those attributes go.

For a new gas coach I would say Newmar or Tiffen, maybe Fleetwood. For diesel, Newmar or Tiffen, Entegra and American Coach.

For used, all the above plus Monaco and Country Coach.

hi'


I would recommend the 2015 Winnebago 35P with Washer and dryer and King size sleep number bed.

It is a fine unit and is quite comfortable. I would also purchase it at Lichtsinn Motors in Forest City, Iowa.

That answer is a lot better than what some people have said, like the floor plan, or what meets ones needs. If you can't afford to use it, it's a crying shame.

When I see an 8 year old class A up for sale that has been driven 9,000 miles I almost don't want to hear the story behind it. Either it sat and they lived in it, or it just sat unused most of the time outside somebody's home or in storage.
