Forest River Berkshire question

I'm out in AZ for a few more weeks and we were shopping for a new and larger coach. A local dealer has a very nice coach that we are considering. It's a Forest River Berkshire 39 ft diesel pusher.

Any ideas out there about Forest River quality and repair history or repair availability?

Paul, I am a "Doubting Thomas" and wonder why the units sell for much less than others.

They are a Berkshire-Hathaway invested company, Warren Buffett's group. The companys focus is mid range DP's. Other than that, I don't know much about them. I was on the Berkshire at a RV show and though the decor was not to our taste, it seem like a nice coach. That being said, we didn't really look all that close. Hopefully, someone who owns a Berkshire will chime in. Have fun shopping!

Isn't it the one with the small Cummins...same engine that they put in the pick up? If so, don't know that it's big enough for a GCWR of over 30k.
