Looking for another RV - What do you recommend from 2008-2014?

Looking at buying another RV (possibly trading ours in) in the next few months. Just curious what has worked well for those on this forum.

Kind of looking at:
  • At least 38'
  • 10,000lb towing capacity
  • Class A
  • Looking for one that sleeps at least 6 (bunk model preferred)
  • Under $200,000

We will be traveling in it for a year of 2, we have a 2010 class c with 15,000 miles and it has two slide. We like having the extra space

Thanks in advance!!!

I still look and look and look, and I can't find a better coach than my revolution.

I paid under 100k for mine. Look into the 40l floorplan

Thank you, great looking coach. How long have you owned yours and what do you really like about it?

Only about half a year for me so far.

Here's what I like.

Powerful engine gets me moving no sweat.
Very good build quality inside and out.
Once the slide opens, this thing is huge.

And one other thing.... more storage than we know what to do with. If you look at the bedroom, it's PACKED with cabinets and drawers, and the kitchen and front too. We can't fill the space.

I look at other coaches all the time, and I can never find one I would like more han this one without spending 800,000 or some crazy number.

I also liked the price, sub 100k is great. We put about 1000 dollars into fixing a thing or two and have traveled 6k+ miles straight.

Spartan chassis, can't go wrong there. Very well though out coach. I was super nervous at the age, and I noticed some neglect around my particular bus, but nothing I can't fix and all outside cosmetic.

Check out the dealer photos here.

Also, I LOVE the basement storage, it's that large storage, pull trays, and the doors oepn sideways, not up.

Also, it has an oven, which you almost never see, plus a washer dryer which works great on the road.

now from my reaserch - year 06, 07, 08 where very similar. I even saw a 2012 that had a very similar floorplan. Once they got longer, 43 to 45 feet with the tag, they starting building them with a sink in the bedroom, but you give up an entire bank of cabinets, and for what? An extra sink.. not me.

You might also want to take a look at the Berkshire and Charleston. We've been happy with ours and have consistently slept six in it with no issues.
