We bought a brand new Coachman Prism 240 back in 2008. It was on the Sprinter chassis with the Mercedes diesel. It was and has been the only RV that had absolutely ZERO issues. The Class C's just did not sleep well for us, but it was wonderful to drive and the mileage was awesome.

Look at Born Free for high build quality with few issues. Good resale value

Check out the lineup from Nexus RV. A fairly new on the scene company that is building some of the best quality C, B+ and Super C's out there. Framed in steel, one piece fiberglass roof and end caps, heated tanks, Azdell instead of plywood, top of the line appliances etc..

Lazy Daze, still among the best built.

Look at some 20 year old ones of any brand youre interested in, to know how they hold up.

This would be a Personal choice ?
Depends on what the person replying owns.
For us it has been Winnebago products.

I would rank the Winnebago higher than the other two you are looking at, but the Winnebago ad on Craigslist was flagged, probably a scam.

For my money, the Winnebago View and Itacsa Navion. Good handling Mercedes diesel Sprinter chassis, great Winnebago quality.

We bought a new 2006 View in 2005, then traded it for our current 2012 Navion. The 5 cylinder diesel was nice, the new V6 is even better.

I highly recommend Coachman Class C's, especially the Leprechaun 319DSF.

as a mechanic, anything with a Chev gas and 1 peice roof.stay away from the 460 Fords unless you want to get to know the gas jockeys names and life history wherever you go.

We have 2007 Winnebago Access 31C bought it last May and are very happy with it! We took short weekend trips at first then in Sept went to VA and back with no problems.

We've bought two Winnebago Aspects now. The first was a 2006 Aspect 26A, and we loved it.... still do. The second, we just picked up last week, is a 2014 Itasca Cambria 27K (same as the Aspect) and I am pretty confident we will love it too. We traded the old one.

We looked at some other makers in our search for a little larger RV and there just were not many whose quality could compare to the Winnebago line, even in the same price point. The other plus is that with Winnebago you can get complete documentation from the parts list to replacement parts to electrical diagrams, everything, for their coaches. Try that with another maker.
