Hi Barb and Mike,
I am having a hard time finding much information about the Coachmen lines (Chaparral or Brookstone). The web site doesn't have much detail, there is limited activity on the various forums, there doesn't seem to be as large of a "community" of owners, and the factory rep we came across, while cordial, is not overly eager to help (as compared to Open Range Rep). Though the information I see on the web is largely negative, there isn't a whole lot of it posted.
All that being said, we really like one of their floor plans and I am really struggling to bring myself to the purchase with "limited" factory backing and the lack of warm fuzzies that I have gotten when dealing with Open Range and to a slightly lesser extent, Heartland. Coachmen has been around A LONG TIME so you would think there would be a HUGE support base and great customer service channels but I am a bit skeptical of all that right now.
Someone with first hand knowledge, please step in and set me straight (or confirm my fears) for the sake of BDHunter and me!
P.S. BDHunter, I see you are coming from a Tiffin Bunkhouse Coach. Can you tell me more about your decision to go Coach to Trailer? I am trying to convince the wife to go the other way but she won this round.
