390 vs 400 - Looking at buying a 2014.

I searched to see if there was another similar post, but could not find one, hopefully I am not duplicating.

After the FROG rally, I got hooked on upgrading from our Georgetown XL to a Berkshire... The plant tour and a test ride sealed the deal.

I am wondering if any of you have any thoughts/feedback on which to buy (390 or 400 series). The only comments I have found is one person thought the 390 had a little better quality components vs what he perceived as less quality in the 400.

Thoughts? Feedback? Opinions?

I got the 400 because the L shaped couch and better windows. 4000 miles and still happy. You might get a lower cost on the 390 as it is an older model than the 400. Check around as pricing fluctuates greatly. MHSRV.com is a Gould gauge in my opinion. Ah heck the 2015's are out too!

Came down to the floor plan for us. DW does not like the L shaped couches.

Edit: we were also able to get a smoking deal on the 390.

I like the 2014 390 FL. That I bought in July. At the time Forest River was giving a $10,000 rebate.

Total Value RV in Elkhart was showing some pretty great prices on '14's.

I've also got the 390fl. Like the fact that we can all sit together to watch TV and not have to strain our necks....

Russell, I also got mine at Total Value. We usually have the chair next to the pull out desk by the fireplace to use our laptop and slide it farther out when watching TV.
