We are researching which type of Motorhome to buy and I am not having much luck finding out the ratings associated with each manufacturer or brand. So far we are looking at brands that have been suggested by other RVers. We currently live in our 25R Arctic Fox travel trailer 9 - 10 months of the year.

My husband's main concern is the engine and running gear. We want definitely want a diesel pusher between 38' to 40' between 2005 and 2010. What do you have, like and dislike and why? Would you buy it again?

Can anyone give us tips, suggestions, web sites, pros or cons to the various rigs? We would greatly appreciate any information that you can pass along. biggrin.gif

Thank you in advance!

Without insulting any Winnebago owners on this forum, I seriously doubt that even the company would contend that its products were intended to compete in the "high end" MH market. Winnebago products are excellent values, but the company has never directly competed in the luxury portion of the market.

Since we don't know what other MH's this particular person had owned, it's impossible to know what he was comparing his Winnebago to. There are plenty of MH's out there of lesser quality.

You make a good point there, docj.
I know one of the previous MHs he mentioned was a bounder, and I believe one other Fleetwood, but you're right, there are many 'layers' to the RV Market, both Motorhome, and TT. It was not my intent to put Winnebago on a pedestal, just passing along annecdotal experience.

Thanks
