Coachmen is now owned by Forest River so I am not sure you can compare a 2003 to a 2010/11 Coachmen. I have a entry level 2011 Coachmen 32' Freelander and tow a 4400 lbs. 4Runner 4 down. It pulls it no problem even in the mountains of TN and north GA. Most larger class C's are going to be on the E450 chassis unless your talking about a Super C built on a medium duty truck chassis. The only modification I made was the 5Star 87 Octane performance/tow tune which was money well spent.

Items like appliances, HVAC, whater heater etc. are going to be pretty much common among manufacturers in like style coaches so in my mind construction (wood/stick built vs aluminum/composite), weight, options, floor plan & dealer capabilities/reputation will likely have the biggest impact on the quality of your experience.

New units of Lazydaze are manufactured in Pomona, CA on an order basis at the factory. New units are not sold through a dealer network. We owned one back in the '80's. They are quality units and very functional.

We now have a new Holiday Rambler Augusta on the Ford E-350 V10. It is a nice unit. We owned a Monaco Windsor DP 34' 10 years ago and were happy with the Monaco quality.

Good Luck in your search...

Ok forget the yukon.
I don't believe that empty weight for even a second. If your GCWR is 22,000 then it has to be a 2011 E450 and the GVWR is 14,500 lbs. That would mean that once my wife son and I got on board we'd be over the GVWR. :(. )

We towed a Tahoe behind a DP and a Super C. We have a 2011 E450 and the only way we could tow the Tahoe would be to replace the receiver that is rated at 5,000 lbs. We now tow an Escape that is 2100 lbs lighter than the Tahoe. While we could tow a Tahoe I'd rather not. It Assam easy tow behind the DP but it would tug on the Kodiak when going over rail lines, large pot holes, etc.

So, you are likely correct - forget the Yukon.
