I was in Elkhart and was told they are planning something different for the Charleston for 2018 . The Berk XLT is a beautiful machine .

Now that Laura has a functioning kidney, the pressure is off to upgrade to a diesel pusher right away (we needed the payload for her dialysys supplies).

We are considering the Berkshire XLT but we will definitely wait to see what the 2018 Charleston's offer as far as ammenities.

I have heard of changing the Charleston to compete with the Dutch Star. Just heard.

Thumper, we just bought a 2017 Berkshire XL HB with the upgraded engine (380hp -1150lb/ft torque) and we could not be happier. You get a lot for the money.

Thanks again for all the replies. I'm familiar with MHSRV, some of our friends have bought from them. We're interested in a bunk model. Not so much for the bunks but to use as closet space.
