Freightliner is a Mercedes company and that should answer the
question of engineering quality. Spartan is every bit the equal.
A lot of the chassis they build go into school buses and other
commercial buses. If you depend on Facebook for accurate
information, you are in deep trouble........

First mistake is taking anything on Facebook at anything other than face value.

Thanks! We do love the Mid-entry and will miss it if we upgrade. I guess I could always get a Newell (not).

Yep, I "depend" on Facebook....lol....ugh...

btw, there are Class A Fleetwood discussion groups, Winnebago Class A discussion groups, yes on Facebook...with some pretty great real time info on campground availability, beautiful sites to see/new places they've discovered (with pics), RV troubles/fixes, etc....but, hell-no, we won't go...it's Facebook...there can't possibly be any "accurate information."

I'll reiterate that it was a "discussion" on Facebook, geez, we won't call it "information" like it obviously is over here, and, I did find it "interesting" that almost all of the replies to that "discussion" preferred Class C's...ooo-ouch...stepped on some tender toes...They preferred Class C's for a variety of reasons...

We do own a Fleetwood Icon 24A which is a Mercedes Sprinter 3500 based Class C diesel...we're thinking of buying a Class A, thus the post....for more on Mercedes :
https://sprinter-source.com/forum/index.php

But, like any discussion group that we casually read with some interest, you have to sift through, sift through...and, of course, many participants on that discussion have been owners of both Class A's and Class C's....those opinions carry more weight for me...they seem less invested.

Here's are a couple of other class a safety discussion (wadda ya know, not on F.B....) :

Class A safety question, etc - RV-Dreams Community Forum

and

Safety of Class A
Not surprisingly, in this "non Facebook" discussion, people have awesome comments like "your only as safe as the driver"......"air bags, one of the biggest deceits in recent years"....... comments from ex-police/highway patrol officers who've observed the results of some crashes involving airbags...discussion of the benefits of crash testing/crumple zones.

continuing with safety :
http://www.camperreport.com/19-reaso...-rv-not-class/
a firefighter responds..."also being a Firefighter for over 25 years I can say that I would NEVER buy a Class A! Even if they had airbags, that will not help you or your lower body if you slam into the back of a big rig. Almost every driver or passenger we have cut out of a Class A accident from a front end collision was deceased. Class A’s are beautiful rigs, but they are not safe enough for my family...."

As I stated, we're thinking about a Class A and it is good to know that some of you have had very good longevity with your Class A's.
