Phaeton replacement

We run a 2010 Phaeton 36QSH. Great rig and nothing wrong with it other than that we want a new one. Called the local Tiffin dealer Friday to initiate an order for a 2019 36GH (same as our 36QSH). Salesman told me that the 36GH is discontinued for 2019. I have no interest in the alternative (37BH). There are no new 36GHs advertised optioned to our taste. So, Iím stuck. Though I would have preferred to buy another Tiffin, if they donít build it, I canít buy it. I am going to have to wade through identifying another brand and model I like. My guess is that the Newmar Ventana is pretty comparable. So, finally, my question for the forum: What other brands/models will I find comparable to the Phaeton?
Thanks all.

All good options above, And I would add the Winnie Journey and Forest River Berkshire to the list as well.

You need to find the floor plan you like and then determine if the other features and overall quality suit your criteria. Just gonna have to slog through the diesel A's and see if anything works for you.

I think too many of us fall in love with a floor plan and then forget everything else. When I bought my current class A gas I narrowed down the manufacturers I thought were good quality first. Then had a list of must haveís and a list of like to have and then looked at floor plans. I will admit in 20/20 hindsight that I should have paid more attention to floorplan.

Welcome and I agree don't get quite so hung up on the floor plan but see what the manufacturer you like (Tiffin) has that may work for you

Good luck in the search.

If you love what you have why not invest in a remodel/update to your current one ?

In the three years I have been following the forums on IRV2 floorplan has ALWAYS been paramount in desires when looking for a new ride. (look at me using the hip jive) I can't imagine us in a different floorplan. This Adventurer 38J has EVERYTHING we were looking for.

Time and time again when the question comes up, FLOORPLAN is 90%+ of the responses. That said, good luck in your search.
