Zephyr or Essex

Iím contemplating whether to buy a 2004 Newmar Essex Vs a 2005 Tiffin Zephyr, OR 2005 Newmar Essex Vs a 2006 Tiffin Zephyr? Assuming condition and mileage are similar. If you would prefer to send me a Private Message that will be great too!
Looking forward to hear your responses!

Well, for what it is worth, I couldn't be happier with my 2006 Zephyr..comfortable, plenty of room and storage. Quiet, stable, wind doesn't bother it. Dependable, everything works as it should. Plenty of power, step on it and it's gone. The list goes on...47,000 miles

I don't own either brand. I have been a full timer for 6 years now and have been in and out of a lot of motorhomes and talked to a lot of owners. If it were my decision, I would lean heavily toward the Essex.

http://www.tiffinrvnetwork.com/crusi...fyi/FYI-12.pdf for something you should read.
http://www.rvcruzer.com/3brands.pdf for something that is a MUST read and very well done.
rvcruzer has done some very good reviews at http://www.rvcruzer.com

If you don't look at http://www.rvcruzer.com/3brands.pdf then buy what you like and enjoy it...have fun don't look back.

FYI, IMHO, you need to look real hard at a similar age Travel Supreme or the Entegra line based on your OP.
