Hey everyone

We are retired and want to travel the country.Would like to tow my Yukon XL.

so far we are interested in class C`s
1-Couchman Concord
2-Itasca Cambria / Winny
3-Greyhawk
4-Jayco Melbourne
5-Monaco montclair
6-Bornfree
7-Lazydaze
8-Phoenix Cruiser

I would like to buy new but may try and find a real good used one.
Would like any pros and cons of the the ones I posted above from owners past and present.

I would be careful equating popularity with quality. McDonald's sells more hamburgers than anyone else in the world, but they are far from being the best.

The Yukon is a bit heavy to be a toad behind those C's.

The Concord has a 22000 gvww with a 14000 lb emty weight

so maybe if I load light( Yukon is 5800 lbs)

still leaves me 1600 for other stuff.

Ok forget the yukon.

You have to look at the towing capacity. A lot of C's cap at 5000# or less.

Mike

do a search on this forum for phoenix cruiser, someone did a write up a while back that would cause you to put them lower on your list.

I have a Itasca Cambria 26A and find it is just a fine coach. I have owned a number of Class A's. This Cambria has everything they do, but in a smaller space. Yet it is very livable. It is easier to handle than a class A, and tows just fine. The workmanship is very good. I have the entertainment center where a typical bunk would normally be. It is a lot easier to take care of the coach part from a stand point of cleaning and waxing. Surprising amount of storage engineered in, but not as much as a class A.

Used to tow a Jeep Liberty with a similar unit, Coachmen. It was right at the "limit". Towing the toad was within the weight parameters but was felt like it was almost too much for the rig.

Otherwise, I would not get a Coachmen unless they have really improved the quality. We had a 2003 Leprechaun, 30 ft. It was ok but after seeing a similar sized Winnebago I wish we would have bought that instead. We live in a rural area and our options are fairly limited.
