Class C Sprinter Chassis

We are looking to trade in our 2012 Siesta on the MB Sprinter Chassis for a new/newer model and are interested in one with 1 large side slide (that includes the bed). I don't need luxury, but do want quality. We live in Florida and I'd like one with better insulation and air flow than my current Thor.

Winnebago doesn't make that model, but is there another brand that is comparable to the quality of a Winnebago?

Thanks in advance.

I just got the Dynamax Isata 3 with the full wall slide. Incredible amount of floor space. Lots of standard features you don't find on the competition. Even though Dynamax was acquired by Forest River, they have a separate factory and quite a bit different that other FR product lines.

Here is the exterior. The paint job on their rigs is unbelievable. Several different color options to choose. With this full wall floor plan, you can pick from dinette (ours), theater seats or sofa with a dining table.

Those Dynamax units are great! You might also look at Leisure Travel Vans. The Unity line is a seriously top notch RV with quite a few floor plans.

Winnebago is introducing (or reintroducing) the full wall slide in the View/Navion models in 2018.

We have the same Isata 3 MH (2017) and love it. I really more spacious that it appears from the outside. We have spent up to 3 months at a time in it with no complaints.

We are on our second three day shake out trip in ours (picked up 5-4-17) and have found no issues so far. We are planning a long trip to the PA Amish country which will be our first long trip. The Sprinter drives very smooth.

Thanks for the replies. I really appreciate the information. I wonder if the Navion/View will have the same one they had in the past, with the rear bath? or if it will be comparable to the Isata 3? I'd love to see an Isata, but not sure which dealers in N Florida/S Georgia have them?

We bought our used Siesta 2 years ago. We weren't sure if we would like a class c after having a 5th wheel for so many years, but our needs had changed. Driving this thing is a dream!

Ours is a rear slide, which I thought would give us lots of room, but I don't think you really gain much at all. I do like the outside storage in the rear slide design. I guess everything is a trade off.

They are easy to find (Isata 3), just go to the isata web site and plug in "find a dealer" and you will see many in your area.
We got ours at North Trail RV in FT. Meyers Fl. I am not sure I would use them again but we go the price wanted, the rig we wanted, and love the rig.

The Isata is a nice rig, but I had a difficult time justifying the additional $20K they wanted for the "coach only" difference between FR and Dynamax. The interior is flashier (no disrespect intended here, people), but was not enough to cause me to buy it. My wife really liked the unit, but we got the FR Sunseeker MBS 2400R and are very happy with it. We especially like the rear bed slide as opposed to one wall slide. Also, we have a higher availability of weight for trips as opposed to the "W" model. It all depends on what you really like and how much you are willing to spend, in the end. Both are very nice units.

Thanks for the link. I like the idea of Winnebago quality, but I'm not sure I'd want a murphy bed.

Thanks, HighDesert. We saw the Sunseeker and loved the look of the unit. I'm glad to hear that you have been happy with it. I don't need "flashy", but I do want quality. I'm not familiar with FR products and appreciate hearing from owners.

There are a lot of things I like about the Siesta, but we think there are a couple of design flaws....plus, I want an electric awning!

Are your electric/water hookups on the outside of the cabin? and if so, are there any pros/cons for that?
