I believe the 2008 Revolution was made on the same production line with the tradition but was on the bottom of the line up.

I think you're right! But difference between them are major! I love both, but the revo, doesn't have full wall slide, which i think makes a HUGE difference. After 3 years we're planning to keep it, most likeky the Tradition will be easier to resale!

During this time, the Rev was considered and 'entry level' AC. Above it, in the pecking order, was the Allegiance, Trad, Eagle and Heritage. If you look closely and at all the 'little' things, you will find there are quite a few upgrades on the Tradition that the Rev will not have.

Another vote for the Tradition.

There is great need for a sarcasm font.

We LOVE our new to us 08 Tradition 40z and it only has three slides. Not sure what you had before, but coming from a 30' Thor ACE, it's like absolute luxury, we are truly grateful and blessed!

Not sure why you are only keeping it three years, but should still have a good resale after that time.

Ours is old enough to "customize" to our liking, so we'll likely keep it till retirement.

Wink Pretty Rig!

Nice looking coach. Keep our information, we are year along ahead of you with our '07 Tradition 40J. We love the coach and have done a number of small projects like upgrading the front TV to a 43 and may can be some help. Our only regret is this one did not have an aqua hot.

Our Eagle has the same color pattern. One advantage is no black, especially on the cab....much cooler in the summer.

For sure. We had an Allegiance prior to this coach. The cab was not only very hot, but was hard to keep clean. Plus the morning dew made very visible lines when it ran down the side.
