RV are like horses. They come in different colors, breeds, shapes, sizes and all have special talents, abilities and needs. Bottom line, enjoy what fits you best. Each to his own taste. Me I like meat and potatoes, burgers and fries sound good.

Probably the easiest way to judge RV's is just simply by price. Many manufacturers make units in various price ranges. I'd start with the entry level which I would define as a MSRP of less than $300,000. Tiffin and Newmar makes some in that range as does Thor, Forest River, Coachmen, and Fleetwood. Then you would jump to the $300,000 to $550,000 range and now we'd add Entegra, Monaco, the Forest River Charleston, and Thor's tag axle coaches. Then you hit the sky's the limit if someone is so inclined.

I think you'll find quite a range of opinions on which is the best. It starts with how much do you want to spend and what floor plan do you find most appealing. Nail down your must-haves, wanto haves, and could care less options and you'll start to narrow your choices. Everyone has an opinion. Some on here will tell you can't beat a particular brand. Others will tell you that particular brand is nothing but a headache in a can. Narrow your choices down and then see what others say about that brand and then your decision would become much easier.

The misses and I have looked at everything you mentioned and then some. We're going to use the advice of needs, wants, and it doesn't matter. We have a floorplan in mind and a price we want to spend.
So we're just going to run with it from there. We know the coach we would really like to have and that's the goal.

Ray, you and I should start our own new club....."Entegra wannabes" and do our own rallies! After all, we former and current WNYers have to stick together.....even on our coach choices.

We bought a Gulf Stream 6340 super c and on the Gulf Stream part of This site it go's both ways some love them and some are not happy with there's. I think you will always see a new and what you may think is nicer but at the end of the day yours is the one that gets you out and into your escape. Hope this helps.

From what I'm gathering there really is nothing more to it then but what you like and can afford, than cross your fingers and hope that the tranny doesn't fall off. Maybe I should have asked about extended warrantees instead! 😏

My 1st fort was blankets over chairs.

Our RV is a fine fort.
Some require a castle. And that's okay.
But my fort is better than their fort!

Well, Entegra has a two year bumper to bumper warranty. To the best of my knowledge no other manufacturer offers a two year warranty. If your budget can warrant the cost, you may want to check out Entegra.

Hummm.....all this talk about coaches this, price that, size whatever. We're just happy to be able to hook up our nice little 25 foot R-Vision Onyx travel trailer and haul our backsides to a nice park, pull out the chairs, break open a good bottle of vino and enjoy the company, or not. For the price difference ($20,000 vs $300,000), I can buy one heck of a lot of cases of good vino.

There is no way you can drink up $280000 worth of vino.

Maybe not, but I'll put a good dent in it.
