Well I have looked around a lot and taking into account t the floorplan, size, and price it beats everything else out there.

I really like fleetwood discovery but this for 38a with 100k less and the extra bathroom ... Below 40'.. Can't be beat... I have a feeling I will end up with the 38A

We bought our 2015 38A in May. We bought it absolutely for the floorplan. Now we have had some issues which had us broke down on the road, but as Nathan mentioned, FR customer support does everything to help get you fixed (such as getting head of line service at Lazy Day when it could have been a 2 week wait just to get in). We just visited the factory in Elkhart and they took care of all the things that needed to be addressed. The price point and all the extras that are normally on the more expensive coaches can't be beat and if you don't need a "home" dealer to rely on, I suggest you look at MHSRV in Alvarado, TX. We flew from CA to buy there bcause their pricing cant be beat. Good luck with your decision!

Recently traded our 09 Georgetown 350TS for a 16 Berk 38A. Bought at MHSRV in Alvarado, TX. Enjoyed every minute of it so far. We have had zero issues so far and have traveled several thousand miles. I would recommend the Berk and MHSRV as well. Good luck.

Regards, Sam

I was asked by Hashimshony the price difference between the Berk 40 BH 360 hp and the 380 hp. Depending on where you buy it will be between $7000 and $20000. It looks like the best prices I have found so far will be at MHSRV in Texas or MH2GO in Mich.

Thank's
I have a 2015 40XL with the 360 + Jeep Commander.

Recently I returned from a trip of about 10,000 miles including the US Rockies and Canada.
There was no problem along the way including driving in the mountains.

The simple math shows = $ 7,000 (minimum difference) / 3.0 $ (average price per gallon) = 2,333 gallons
Relaxed driving fuel consumption is abut 8.5 miles per gallon, that means nearly 20,000 miles !!!!

If you ask me,,,,, I would have stayed with the 360.

p.s. This is exactly what I need for the next trip begins in New Orleans,, West Coast to Alaska and back

We have a 2015 40BH put 8k miles on it Spent a few days with a bunch of Tiffin owners all with 2015 models. I think the cabinetry in the FR looks better even though it's not hand made at factory. Hearing their problems I don't feel as bad as I did for my issues. Too many to elaborate on. One maybe obviously thing about the BH is the bunk folds up when not in use to give u aton of extra storage. Don't love the floor plan as there is not a great place to sleep other than the master. Nothing folds open to a real bed except the bunks. All of the convertibles are for real short people and I'm 5'7 on a good day.
