why are all(?) <30' gassers "entry" level?

My question is why all motorhome manufacturers seem infected with the bigger is better virus?

It seems any <30' gasser is considered entry level. I'd gladly pay some extra $ to get just a little nicer interior. Anybody listening?

Sounds like you're paying too much attention to the Ad copy. Look at the facts, not the hyperbole.
If you have one built, you can request about any finish you'd like. If you go to a dealer, the smaller rigs are going to be 'pre-built' more cheaply to hold price down and get more folks in the door.

How much extra would you like to pay? I posted an example earlier of a 23' no slide Born Free with a MSRP of $142,150.00. I would hope that MH has a little nicer interior.

Sorry, I was thinking of class A coaches (for interior/exterior storage reasons) under 30' from the major manufacturers who enjoy economy of scale manufacturing. Certainly Born Free and Leisure travel vans are very nice.

What I'm talking about is that as you go up in say the Winnebago product line (or any other it seems), the higher end coaches are the ones with more interesting interior detail that is not available as a factory order customer special.

For example, the Winnebago Sighteer just has a touch more interior detail than the vista (27 and 28' models) which makes it look better IMO. But the Sighteer isn't available until you go to the 30A model, which is a 31 footer. The next level of detail up is the Adventurer, which only starts at 33'!

All I'm saying is make a 28 foot Adventurer.

Tiffin has a nice short diesel, but no storage (comparatively to equivalent length gas). They start their gas at 30+feet.

See, I'm just a very difficult customer!

Happy trails.
