I have some questions for Daybreak owners.

1. When you purchased your Daybreak, did you look at other coach's from Winnebago, Fleetwood etc?

2. What made you choose the Daybreak?

3. How do you think the quality of Daybreak compared to other brands you considered?

4. If you owned other brands in past how does the Daybreak compare in quality, driveability and comfort.

Thanks,

I looked at different coaches for almost a year before I bought mine. The Damon had the best floor plan and also the best outside storage. The Winnebago models were very "cheap" feeling inside with no counter space. The Thor Hurricane models had horrible outside storage. The Coachman models were priced right, but the floor plans that I looked at, along with the split shower, didn't get me excited.
Once I bought the coach I have found it to be very well built. Don't get me wrong there is no "entry level" coach that's built like a DP but my 2007 still feels solid. I have had a crack in a closet door, both the dash instrument panel and rear view tv fell off (!) because of weak magnets, and the seal on one upper side of the slide doesn't exactly line up perfect so water may sometimes get in during a wash but that's about it. I spend a lot of time reading horror stories on these RV forums so I think I'm doing pretty good.
I have never owned another class a coach but I have spent my whole life in various trailers and fifth wheels growing up. Without a doubt my Damon is built better than the trailers I have used.

Would love to see some photos of your interior upgrades.
I'm taking it out this weekend I'll try to take some photos of the changes I made.

Looking forward to your photos, it's 10f and snowing here so it will be a while before I get the coach out.

Thanks,
1. Looked at a few

2. condition and floor plan (rear bed)

3. about the same around the same year.

4. never owned a class A before, many TT and other type RVs, After fixing the worn out parts it drives fine for a truck. comfort is good, easy to drive.

Here are 2 pictures showing the interior with the curbside couch removed. A swivel chair, small cabinet, and 2 magazine racks made the space better for me. It also gives a direct view of the new flat screen tv up front.

My Daybreak is coming out of its temporary winter storage tomorrow to go to its new permanent storage. I will be busy testing everything out and getting it road worthy.

Here is a photo of its new home.

I really like the winter storage place but I could only access it during from 9-5 Mon-Fri so needed something more flexible.
