Coachmen Concord 300TS or Nexus 29V

We are still aways away from purchasing an RV.

But Im pretty much settled on something with a minimum of 29' and a max of 34' with opposing slide outs. Opposing slides are a *must have* for me.

I might even be convinced to get a Class A in the 29'-to-32' range with opposing slides.

I understand the Concord is a very good rig, I have not been in one, but have been reading a lot about them and I like the layout, so does the Admiral

Then I came across the Nexus Viper 29V, which is at the absolutle minimum length that I would like.

If you own either rig, would you be kind enough to post your thoughts on them, positive or negative.

Ideally, I'd like one that is 'four season'

Thanx in advance

4 season is a misnomer.

could you please explain why? I think heated or warmed tank and lines would be helpful in subzero weather

Just a little. We have been camping in teen weather over night. You need to use propane heater if you want to keep your wet bays warm, or you can jump through hoops and use elec. heaters. If you are in a Class C then you more then likely restricted to 30 amp. Like I said you can do it. The tank heaters are 12 volt and the blower on the heater is 12 volt and both eat up battery reserve. Also you will burn through propane. Last Jan. where we stayed, it was low 20s most nights and elec heaters not allowed. I went through a 20 lb bottle in two and a half days. During the day it warmed into the 40s. If you ask the builder they are really 3 season. Now if you go to the Keys every winter, then yes they are 4 season.

The Nexus 29V at 30'8", is almost two feet longer than the 29' minimum length you're looking for.

We have a 2017 Viper 29V and are very pleased. Bought new and had a few minor issues and resolved under warranty. Only have 15k miles on it but so far all is good. Easy to drive and comfortable. Did purchase a new mattress because of a need for more comfort.

I should mention we will be going full time, we will be selling our home in New Yorkistan and leaving this over controlling/regulating state.

We would REALLY like a Super C. Renegade or a Nexus or possibly a Jayco Seneca. But those are a little out of our price range.

Anyway, The plan is to aquire either a Concord or Viper, cover the roof with Solar panels and install Lithium Ion batteries and replace the toilet with a Natures Head Composting toilet. I also want to install an instant on water heater and change the a/c over to a heat pump.

We have a plan. Its a good plan and easily obtainable. Just going to take a couple years.

Does anyone have any "cons" on either the Concord or Viper. I know a lot about each one, but no one ever talks about the stuff they don't like.

ie: not enough storage, generator to small, wrong color floors? King bed to big? whatever.

I'd like to hear the negatives. just keep in mind, there are very few things I can't fix (bragging)

the Aspect is nice, the master does not have much in the way of cross ventilation, otherwise its a nice rig

now that I think about it, I might have to take a closer look at the Aspect?

We bought a new Aspect 30J about 5 months ago. Ticked all the boxes. Opposing Slides, Duel pain windows, fiberglass roof, 15k air / heat pump, jacks, inverter, and full body paint.
