Wnytaxman--your experience sounds similar to ours, though we never tried the Class-C route. Interestingly, close friends of ours had a Berk 39bh and recently upgraded to a Newmar DSDP in a bunkhouse configuration. They have 3 kids (not in college yet) so the bunkhouse is the only way to go for them still. Other friends of ours have an Entegra, which is also very nice (not a bh). A third family that we travel with sometimes has a Tiffin Zephyr. All are really nice units, but I personally have eyes on the Newmar brand for our next RV. I might consider an Entegra when the time comes. I would probably not buy a Tiffin given what I've read about them and the experiences of my friend with their top of the line coach.
