Winnebago View vs. Winnebago Trend

Considering a used View or a new Trend. Which is a better unit? In regards to drivability, quality and comfort. We're looking for a unit that we can drive around without having to pull a toad hence why we're looking at a smaller C class.

What should I expect to pay for a used 08 View and 15 Trend?

The View has more power and overall bigger than the Trend. The MB engine and drivetrain has proven itself over years in service. No sure about the Trend. Resale on the View is high not sure how the Trend will be as it gets some years on it. I would go with the View.

We looked at both and bought an '08 View 24h. The interior materials are of better quality. We have been very pleased with it. The little slide out makes a big difference for a family of 4 and we get lots of positive compliments about it. We like that it is narrower than a typical Class C which makes a difference for parking and day trips. I wanted to be able to tow our '03 Chevy tracker on occasion which the trend cannot do. We just took it a 2 week trip of the Oregon coast, redwoods, SFO Bay Area and Yosemite. It performed flawlessly. All this said, I still don't think we would have been disappointed with a Trend if we had no desire to tow our tracker once in awhile.
