Expert Help Needed on Two RV Choices...

We're looking at two different RVs to buy, but we need help of all you experts out there

Which one is the better buy as far as make, model, year, chassis, etc.? We are going to see both this weekend. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

I would get the Gulf Stream. V10 is a much better power plant.

Frankly, I lean towards the Itasca. It is a Winnebago product. Even though it is older than the Gulfstream, it is more likely built better.

I had a Gulfstream Class C 24 years ago and it was nowhere built as good as my current Winnebago Class C.

Assuming they are both solid I'd also go with the Gulf Stream.

That vintage V-10 has a spark plug issue. By now it is well documented and repair kits are available if needed. OTOH the unit has 50K miles on it and the plugs are good for 100,000 as the recommended change point. If you get there then find somebody who knows what they are doing to replace them. I'd think about whether or not I did it then.
