Canyon Star...if new.....is a front engine diesel.....but available only in "toy hauler" models! Is on a 30,000 GVWR Freightliner chassis.
Bay Star....if new....is a "gas" engine chassis, & depending on model, could be on a 22,000; 24,0000, or 26,000 GVWR Ford F-53 chassis. The 26,000 GVWR chassis seems to be the better of the three, but is "model" dependent.
The 7.3 V-8 seems to perform quite well, & according to some who have them, the new chassis rides & handles better then the old one.
I would suggest that the "floor plan" or "Model" is the most important part of your choice, as it will fulfil or not fulfil tour wants & needs!
The 23 "Bay Star" has had a lot of nice upgrades, & is now closely comparable to the previous gas "Canyon Star" models.
My opinion, "Canyon Star" is the best available "gas" coach in the marketplace!
