Looking at buying a 2011 Forest River Berkshire 390BH - couple of questions

Good afternoon friends!

My wife and I are looking at upgrading from our '03 National Tradewinds 395 to a '11 Forest River 390BH. I really like a lot of the nuances - everything from the water manifold in the wet bay to the cockpit layout.

A couple of questions -

- Is this a DEF model? I cant remember the years for DEF across the coach industry. Its not quite a deal breaker, but if its not DEF, I'd be a happy guy.

- This one has the Cummins 360HP- has anyone reported any significant issues with it?

- The power hookup appears to be in the rear-most driverside compartment - is it on a spool, or is it a loose cable?

In general does anyone that has owned a Forest River Berkshire (hopefully an '11) for a considerable amount of time- do you like it, wish it had something different? I've read the couches sit a bit more upright than would be desired.

Thoughts and insight would be greatly appreciated.
