So, some folk have 15, 20, 30, 40 yrs of Experience with Class A (Diesel and Gas) Motor home/coaches.
Some folks love Researching the Heck out of a subject (class A RV's) and read tons of reviews and surveys.
So, I gather that if in your yrs of experience you've run across an RV that was a money pit i.e. always in the shop, kept breaking down on the road, Always had something wrong with it (like every month, or 3-6 months) it wouldn't be in your top 6.
OR, if in your research you crunched the numbers on certain Brands or models and found that certain brands and models jumped out at you as being more reliable than others, then pls share your top 6 Favorite Brands+Models (if you can't think of 6 put down 4, it's ok, lol), if you don't mind. Specify if Diesel or Gas if you please. Like always thanks for sharing.

Within reach;
Newmar
Entegra/Travel Supreme
Monaco/Holiday Rambler (pre bankruptcy, I can't speak forntodays untils)

The reality is if we were buying again there would only be one brand we would even consider - another Newmar.

Out of reach;
Foretravel
Newell
Prevost


There are 24 hours in every day - it all depends on how you choose to use them.

If people like what they have, they would probably buy that brand again.
I would buy a Tiffin again as it has been a very good coach.
I also had an American Coach. I would consider that again as it was a good one too. Both are diesels.

Your question is tough since you don't give a price range. My favorite coach would be a Newell or Foretravel, but out of my reach.

Within my price range..

Newmar
Tiffin
American Coach

If still around,
Monaco
Country Coach
Alpine Coach
Travel Supreme

I honestly don't think one is that much better or worse than the other as many use the same products in their manufacturing process (Slides, leveling, etc).

Of course price range will make a difference...

Upper end:
Entegra-- I see a lot of new Entegra's now, several new ones in my storage garage.
Newmar
Tiffin
REV products (American Coach, Fleetwood, Monaco, Holiday Rambler, etc.)
Winnebago

The more options you get, the better chances that something will stop working or need replacing or servicing.

It's all a labor of love!

You cannot be serious...Alfa, are those the five worst??? None would make my top six. After the three I'm not willing to spend a bunch of money on it's the old Monaco, Newmar and Tiffin.


This post is my opinion (free advice). It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.

Mr Mark,
Newmar designed and builds most of their own slide mechanicals, and has since their first slide.

The exception would be their new "More Floor", which was designed and engineered with HWH.
