Any Super Star Owners out there?

Good Morning, we are researching our purchase of a Super C and the Super Star seems to be leading our pros/cons list. Any owners out there care to share their experience? Still seems like only two dealers are selling them at this point, which means either a 12 hour drive or a flight just to test drive one....Anyone have any pros and/or cons on not only the Super Star but also Transwest and North Trail?!
Appreciate some insights...

I see Midway in Grand Rapids has two 2021 Super Stars on order.

I really wanted one but what steered me away was #1 the weight (very,very heavy for a single axle) The hp/tq vs. weight is not good. I had one with that engine that was 10K lighter and it was sure not a hot rod. #2 extremely poor finish of the truck. It is like going from a luxury RV into a 1990's work van. #3 Air ride cab. Way too much to go wrong and added cost for little benefit. I had this same M2 chassis/engine combo on my last RV and it rode fine. #4 The unit is very tall. Close to the 13'6" limit. #5 Personal but I did not like the floorplans.
My bet is this will not be built for long in its current configuration.
I would love to see a luxury Super C built other than Renegade Icon.

Good Luck with whatever you decide.

Thanks for those points... we test drove a few Renegade Verona LE's and felt that the air ride seat (even adjusted)bounced quite a bit.. in talking to folks at Newmar the design is supposed to reduce the bounce of the Air Ride seat...

Height i'm not too concerned about and the floorpan to me blows Renegade away with the rear bath and the full slide..

does anyone out there that owns one have any real life experience or feedback??
