Doc hit the nail on the head - value! Value, quality, reliability and price were some of my top criteria. When it comes to what you can get for what you have to pay, it's "value by design". That's how Damon gained the market share it has and continues to gain. For that reason, if I were buying a new MH today, it would be hard for me to eliminate the Tuscany as one of my top five choices. If value was not a top criterion for me and money not an issue, Country Coach Intrigue would be at the top.

I traded up from a class "C". I like the floor plan and the two slides. I also wanted the larger engine. It turns out that after owning it for one year now, it is a very good motorhome.

We chose our Damon for the quality, value, and we really liked the floorplan. We bought ours at an RV show. My wife sat inside, and just would not leave until we bought it. We have had it going on three years now trouble free.

We really liked the floorplan of the 3276. The price was affordable after searching for years.

I have always wanted a Coach but the wife did not want to spend the money. I got her to climb around in some listed for 15K, these were really used old units. Once she had enough, I took her this used 348 Challenger 38ft with two slides. The unit was 1 year old used and she loved it. Especally after climbing around the old units. The Coach smelled like smoke, but using some tips from other forums, we were able to get ride of the smell. GREAT PRICE, PERFECT SHAPE, GREAT LAYOUT, it was a winner. I found the old owners (phone numbers) in the glove box and called them. They loved the Coach, but wanted to upgrade to a pusher. They bought Damon again so their loss is our gain. We have traveled over 20K in the last 1.5 years and love it. I highly recommend to anyone on a budget that wants low cost, but still wants items found in higher dollar Coaches.

We went to the Novi-Michigan RV show (MARVAC) and toured a whole bunch of Motor homes.. .one, the 2005 Damon 377 had a bath & a half

And that's how we choose.. 2 holes, no waiting

Alas. the 2006, did not offer the bath & a half (But I got an 'o5)

Value was the #1 reason for me.

Does it have the best trim?- No.
Does it have the best finish?- No
Does it have the "wow" factors of some of the really high-end Class A units?- No.


Does it fulfill my needs? - Yes.
Is it safe? From my point of view - Yes.
Can Damon give me more coach for less money? Yes.

I'm an "easy to keep person" and do not require the "wow" factors. This is why I fly a Cessna rather than a Beachcraft. The Cessna will get me from point A to B just as well as the Beachcraft for much less overall cost. Same with the Damon.

I agree with Kathy on all points. That's why I have a 1952 Cessna 195 instead of a 1942 Beechcraft Staggerwing. &lt;g&gt;

Don't toy with me....
God I love the Staggerwing..&lt;drool&gt;
If a better looking aircraft exist (the F4U Corsair does not count), I do not know of one.

There are a lot to choose from. P-51, F4 Phantom come to mind. The Staggerwing is definitely a classic though. John H....

Scott, I regret not making it to Oshkosh this year and meeting you for that beer.
