Smile Class c search

Hi all,I am looking to buy a new MH (1st. Time buyer) soon and
Have been looking at Regency and Thor class C MH's
Also winnebago / Itasca. The Ford chassis seem to be the same but I'm concerned about overall coach quality. I have done a lot of research online and gone to rv shows. Now it's time to take the plunge. Does anyone have any concerns about the class C brands I mentioned above...?
Any info would be greatly appreciated...
Thanks

If you are looking at new - have you checked out Nexus? New company, no dealers, look very interesting.

Try giving them a call - they claim they have the warranty/service issue all worked out.

Just a thought - I own a National Surf Side - company is out of business and I have no problem getting work done.

It was a few years ago that we were looking at and bought a class C. The Thor product line was at the very bottom of the list. We bought a Minnie Winnie DL and were very happy with it. Jayco was next on our list.

Thor has a low price for a reason. You generally get what you pay for.

Sorry about the double post. The WiFi here is really pretty bad.

We love our Regency. We gave a 2010 GT29DBS. You will have trouble finding a used one I believe, and being Canadian, dealers are somewhat rare. The quality is tops.

Class C Search

Hi Steve
If you are looking for a high quality class c coach, I would recommend the Born Free.

They range in size from 22 feet up to 29 feet. They do not make their coaches with slides.

They are a small company selling direct to the public, located in Iowa.

You can access their owners born free website to get their opinions.

Good luck
John

The Winnebago View/ Itasca Navion are great class C's. Check out the View/Navion Yahoo group. Built on the Sprinter chassis with a Mercedes Turbo Diesel engine it has great power and incredible mpg. I get around 15.5 mpg at 60-65 mph
