The new Winnebago 38Q has a base price close to $182K, with some options it would be $185K +.

Just out of curisoty, looked that one up on line. first on up listed at $191, so your 185 sounds like a more real figure. Will give them credit on the floor plan, especially with the option of a 72x80 bed. If I were again in the market, that would deserve a good look.

We too would look T a large gasser. Problems as I see it is the chassis.
No air bags and the ford v-10,although a very good engine, I don't feel
It has enough power. Oh, no exhaust brake, or something like it.
I believe there is a place for a larger gasser engine.

Wow! That is one nice looking plan! By switching the wardrobe from the back wall to the side across from the bed, it saved them that extra 2 ft - which makes that efficient 38ft almost identical with the 40ft version of that floorplan that most DP brands offer!

That is a good looking coach. I guess the torque of the V10 is the limiting factor on what builders can do with the MH's .

A gasoline engine itself is an "exhaust brake", (when the vehicle is driven and shifted correctly the engine acts as a compression brake).
A diesel engine is NOT, (therefore exhaust, or engine, brakes are usually supplied on coaches and trucks).

Other than on the rear of an '88 Toyota Dolphin, I've not had air on any of the RVs I've owned. The '14 Thor I bought in April has the MOR/Ryde suspension and it makes a world of difference over the '11 Ford chassis and the previous '04 Workhorse chassis in handling, ride, power and fuel economy. With the later model Tow/haul setting the exhaust brake is really a non issue. I tow all the time so a down hill is automatic, but if not towing, kick it on just before you top out. We ran a couple of long 7% grades with only occasional minor braking and on the second even longer, I shifted down one gear to keep it where I wanted. My unit's 35.5 ft and was stocked as though it was a full time unit. Straight from the sales lot in Houston, I ran 62-65 towing a Focus and we got just a hair over 7.5 for the trip. The 38Q is 39.25 ft, so I wouldn't want to go larger than the that on the V-10.

Haven't checked prices on gas Newmars but they aren't cheap to start with and have options and changes that they will do that add to the $$

Our 37LS Outlaw had an MSRP of $165000 and could have gone higher with the over cab bunk and the garage couches that we passed on.
