Chris,

You maybe misinterpreting what was posted on RV Direct. I know at the Buffalo location they had only two Berkshires on the lot. They were both 2013's. I saw by the inventory that they also had one 2013 in Albany and a 2014 in Florida. When I was at the Berkshire Plant in Elkhart last month, they had 45 new units out on the lot ready to go and they had a full production line going. The busiest I had seen them. When I bought my 2011 Berkshire BH390 2 years ago, RV Direct told me they had to sell what they had in inventory in order to get more units in. That maybe the position that they are in. Based upon what I have seen, I can't imagine that the Berkshire line is being discontinued. In fact it seems like they are increasing production. You might want to contact RV Direct to clarify the posting.

RVW doesn't sell Bershires. RVDirect does.

RVW just started selling motorhomes, just Class C, never has sold Class A.

If you look on RV-direct and try and build a class a, they are listing a new forest river diesel motorhome called the legacy..... It is a smaller class a diesel.

I wonder if they are going to announce a new model at the dealers meeting?

Saw one of those at the plant also. I believe it is a 36 foot model. We were told it was a popular model. It was on the same production line as the other Berkshires.

On the Forest River website the Berkshire is still there along with the Charleston, Georgetown, and FR3. Nothing else is shown under the Class A's. Like Craig, I would be really, really surprised if the model is discontinued. Also, to the best of my knowledge RVOne will have serveral Berkshires at Hershey next week.
