Anybody have any opinions on either of these units.

We have started looking at new ones. And I like the Everest 323K and the Coachmen 318RLTS.

Whatcha think?

I agree with allendp. We love our 2004 Everest 323P. Good luck on your choice. Our previous was a 28' Coachmen (used) with no major issues.

We have just bought a new 2004 32 something Not sure what the letters are but what ever it is we love it, of course we haven't spent but 3 nights in it, but the quality seems to be very good, this is our first 5ver so we don't know much about them, we love the layout and all the storage space.

I'd go for the Coachmen. I've toured the factory and like their construction. I have several friends with at least 30 years of RVing and have never owned anything but.

Is the quality seem good for fulltiming? I 've looked at some.. and Im wondering (if they are built so good...why not more construction warranties?) But, I will look into those more. I like the 35-36 lenght. Ford 250 SD w/airbags OK for Everetts? Thanks........ Do they still make Coashman? I'll have do a search

Hello Slideout - Welcome to IRV2. I don't think I would hesitate to use our Everest for full-timing. It has everything one could want in an RV, tows very well, and the floor plan we have is very roomy.

While the model we have is a 323P, it's actual outside length is 35" 11".

I would not want to pull it with a 3/4 T. I pull my with a 1 ton Dodge SRW with the HO Cummins and I don't even know the trailer is back there.

Hope this helps.

I pull my Everest 323p with my 3/4 ton dodge ctd with no problems. Yea I'm over my gvwr by 900 lbs. I have an upgraded auto with a smart controller for locking up the torque conv. for useing my exhaust brake & have a brakesmart controller. With a few power mods dynoing at 332hp she pulls & stops no problems.
Been driving truck for 30 yrs & as long as the tire rating & axle ratings are not exceeded & drive sensabley I don't see a problem.

Slideout, I pull my 36' everest w/ f-250 superduty w/ a few mods and air bags. Pulls like a dream trailer is good quality and couldnt ask for better trailer in my book. I have been around rvs since I was 13yrs old. My parents over the years have had several tt and 5ers so I picked up alot of good info over the years watching them get newer models. I have 2 kids that just love to go camping like i did when I was younger. I worry sometimes about the gvwr that I am running but I feel safe when pulling 5er never get in a hurry take it slow and whatch for all the crazy people and you should be fine.
