Drive the Workhorse and the Ford and form your own opinion. I did and I went with the Workhorse. Both were under Tiffin Motor Homes of the same size and year.

Yeah, I think the salesman's shop could repair the Ford chassis, but not the GM/Chevy. Hence the Triton favoritism.
Typically, dealer's do not perform any maintenance on chassis whether they are a Ford or Workhorse. I would check BUT I doubt that the dealer actually works on Fords unless they are a Ford dealer. If this is the case then I know why the push toward that direction however in my opinion it's not driven in your favor but in favor of the dealer who is trying to move product off the lot. Perhaps he might be trying to move the Ford thinking that he can move the Workhorse to another customer.

Unless the floor plan meets your needs and you're happy with the deal do not commit to buying either motorhome from this dealer. Shop around some more. You have the advantage.

Apples, Oranges, Cherries, and Limes...All are good, or sour, in their own way.

Good advice from Dave, Coasite, and jfran, drive and decide.

Neither good nor bad, but Ford will be making engines, transmissions, and chassis, for many years to come, time will tell about Navistar's commitment to Workhorse.

I have no problems with my Workhorse or the 8.1 / Allison.
My local GMC dealer down the road is a Workhorse Service Center and they do all my work with no difficulties!

No problems getting my Workhorse serviced. Dealer is probably trying to steer you away from Workhorse through deception for his own gain. I would ask him what he means by that. It may be that he's saying that Workhorse is difficult for HIS guys to work on.

After all this, I believe the most correct answer is to pick your coach size, floor plan and year. Try to find something with low miles on the odometer. The chassis type be what it may.

Research this forum and also others, Workhorse problems vs Ford problems. You will have plenty of reading to do. Find out what issues there are and how they were resolved, and what the future is for each company. Best of luck whichever you choose.

See the attached Workhorse Bosch brake recall. Scroll down to read all the "unfortunate" stories from owners. Kinda scary at times.
