New Discovery

Hey all...Getting close to purchasing my first brand new RV and the new Discovery is high on the list. I have owned two used coaches but wife sure likes the new ones and wants to see the country before things get too nutty out there.

That said, any input regarding quality control issues, or anything else good or bad, is appreciated.

REV seems to be doing some good things but I will take any and all input.

Thanks to all.

I've had some issues with my '16 bounder, but that was when they were still ALLIED, not REV. Supposed to be a bad year. That being said I would probably buy a fleetwood again. Warranty and service is great, and I think it's a solid value. They have the best layouts in my opinion.

We have a ‘17 40E that we love. Have put about 3000 since July. We bought it used and the only real issue is sorting out all the television inputs from satellite. We have a couple of squeaks I’m chasing but this is true in any coach. Overall we love it. Traveling is so much nicer than the gas coach we had previously.
Good luck with your decision and safe travels.

'15 40E. 24k miles. No major issues. But way too many minor. I'm picky, can do all repairs myself. Prior Maint Mgr, QC Mgr, Engineer and mechanic.
Do a very thorough predelivery inspection.

We have a 2014 Discovery 40X. Bought new in 2014 and currently have about 60,000 miles on it. No problems thus far. Would buy a Fleetwood product again.

You all are sort of putting the icing on the cake for us. I have done loads of research and in the end I will take what is stated here seriously. Unless the test drive is really bad it looks like a 40D for us.

Bought our 40G in August and so far really love it. Some minor issues to be expected but nothing real major in my eyes. Almost 4000 miles on it so far.
