I bought my first RV this past winter thru RV Direct, so I worried a lot. It cost $15K less than the lowest price I could find at a local dealer, so I could afford it, but I was ale to add options I wanted, like an entertainment center instead of cabover bunk, addition of leveling jacks. It's 24', on a Mercedes diesel chassis. It's a Solera, manufactured by Forest River. It has a corner bed, loads of storage and one slide. Plenty of room for me and my two big dogs and a periodic guest or two. It was designed to be like the Winnebago View at a lower price point. Gotta say it drives like a dream, up and down hills with no effort, and am already getting 16+ mpg...which is expected to to go up as it breaks in. They built just a few starting in 2010, but they have become so popular they've increased production slowly, and now seem to be building four times as many. Check out the Forest River website. These babies are great!

We originally looked at the "B's" but found it was lacking in storage. We bought a Coachmen Freelander 21QB and traded that in for a Winnebago Access Premier 26Q. That one has a slide with the TV opposite the dinette. I didn't care for the TV in place of the cabover because to watch TV you have to twist your neck around!! We also travel with 3 dogs and a cat and the cat stays on the bed (in a cage) over the cab - works great for us.

I like the Phoenix Cruiser floorplans - how is their quality?

We have owned a Winniebago Outlook and an Itasca Navion and were pleased with the build quality of the coaches. Is the Phoenix Cruiser good quality too? I like their floorplans.

I have a 2400 Phoenix Cruiser and they are a quality unit IMHO. We are needing to get something larger and are having difficulty in giving this one up. PC has also went over and above the warranty by fixing items that were broke by my gran kids. No charge! If they made a class A I would not be looking anywhere else.

Different heads. Two valves versus three valves per cylinder. 305 hp versus 365 hp.
