Anything more than what you have posted so far would sure help with the decision, I'm still worried about leaks (lots posted on forums in past years). Also will be towing 2014 Jeep Rubicon 4dr. Thanks in advance!
We settled on a Jayco Melbourne after all was said and done. It's due in to the Fort Collins CO area dealer in early April. The nicer outside look and more streamlined look (and supposedly better handling) is why we went that way. The Concorde would be Coachmen's version of that I believe. Funny thing is, for so long I was certain on the 319 but later decided to go back and look at Jayco again. There's a local dealer which is better and Jayco's quality seems up there. We had looked at a Greyhawk before, which is what set the whole thing in motion months ago. There is only one model and a couple of options with the Melbourne which makes the decision easier! The kitchen is not as nice as the 319 and that is perhaps the largest drawback of our choice. Like the Concorde, there's no overhanging cab portion. In the Melbourne that area is the entertainment zone. There are three slide-outs.

Check one out. Jayco's website is nice I think. You might convert. I used one I found new at a dealer in CA to make our offer, even tallying up the costs to get it. Then made an offer almost $10,000 below their first price. They took it. They had given us two prices on Greyhawk models. The three models (both Greyhawks and the Melbourne) have similar MSRP but for some reason (probably dealer knew we were more interested in the Melbourne once I brought it up!) the Melbourne came in at a higher percentage over MSRP than the other two. I offered less or I go to CA! My wife was almost disappointed to not have to go out there!

I know this thread is old but I'm actually looking for Leprechaun owners that have had theirs for a while.

Anyone have a "long term review" they can share? I really like the floor plan of the 319MB (I think it is). Can't seem to find that floor plan anywhere else with the recliners across from a TV and fireplace.

But so many items seem so cheap. And my standards aren't too high I don't think. We're coming from a FR Surveyor which seems middle of the road to me quality wise.

The Leprechauns bathroom fan?? Give me a break.

But I can work with a few things and upgrade. But the durability long term is something I'd love to hear about, please.

Not sure what long term is but we have had our 320Bh since 2013 and have put 25,000 miles on it. We moved to the Leprechaun from a Holiday Rambler Ambassador diesel pusher. We spend the winters traveling through the southern states, Florida and Texas then back to NJ and the summer month taking week trips in the north east. We have had 0 problems with the Coachmen including the bathroom fan. Everything has worked fine and we enjoy the huge savings we get by owing a class C. Our local Ford garage does the service on it willingly. We have only required regular scheduled service. We enjoy everything about this class C and it is very near the top of our list of the best Motorhomes we have owned over the last 35 years of camping. Sure, there are better and more expensive motorhomes but the Leprechaun has been great for us in all respects.

PhDan, this is great, thank you. More than a year is long term enough for me. I see a lot of posts where folks have had theirs for 2 weeks and rave about it. I was just wanting to hear from folks who have had theirs long enough for the honeymoon to wear off.

Owned a 320BH for about 2 1/2 years. This was our first MH. My only thing I didn't like was the bathroom - because this was a BH model, we lost considerable space. The shower - aka corncob shower - was horrible. Coachmen made some improvements on this model but still a small shower. Other models have a larger shower. Other items in the coach are similar - over all a good conservatively priced coach.

We have a 2014 319DS and love it. Bought it new in 2014 and bought it because we thought the floor plan was great. Big TV across from dual recliners. We are trying to sell it now to down size, but will really miss it. Advertised on Dreamfinders.com
