Books/information

I'm new to rving and trying to compare different coaches for reliability and quality
Can anyone recommend a good book or web site with real data to help make our selection
I'm comparing the Winnebago view 24 with diesel to the forest river Georgetown 27 with ford motor
Thank you
Jim

I used the RV Ratings Guide for both my used motorhome purchases. It certainly wasn't the final decision, but helped me with the which units to put on my short list.

Thank you

Jim

You need to narrow your field and sharpen your focus. Highly recommend the RV Consumer Group mentioned above.

The comparison you've posed above is not apples v. oranges, but you could say it's Red Delicious v. Granny Smith--- not too many common points, except at the most basic level.

For all
Thank you for responses
We drove both vehicles today and decided on the Winnebago view 24
It's small so we'll need all the help with storage tricks and ideas
We'll need small grill, storage rack behind coach, (we don't plan on a tow at the moment ) etc
Again thanks
Joanned and jim
