Welcome to the forum Stephen, nice coach!! And I have to agree with FR service. I frequent the Tiffin forum often and they always claim that Tiffin is the only MH manufacturer that backs there product. They are wrong. FR has a great support team.

Yep, that took the wife, kids and back up camera to navigate!
The audio with the camera comes in handy with this unit!

Hi Kelsma03, One thing you will find is that there is never a shortage of friends who are willing to comment and help here on this forum. I did a great deal of research and comparison before buying our 2013 390FL. The value for the dollar swayed us toward Forest River and the service we have received to this point has sealed the deal. Good luck with what ever you decide. Frank

Just an update: we decided on the Berkshire. The 400BH floorplan is just too perfect for us. We will be picking it up the week of June 23, getting through my 9 year old son's district championship baseball weekend and then off for a weekend of camping at Cedar Point. Can't wait to hit the road in the new coach.

"keeping for many many years"...are you sure?

You're changing now because the kids are older and need separate beds (we did the same). As they become teenagers they may want to camp less (aka be home with friends..bring friends camping is a 'something little kids do' so our 13 year old has decided this year).

once they're 16+ they'll prolly camp less. this is based on my family, friends, etc. YMMV and it would be interesting to see what the community says (i'll go start a thread on that!).

So if this 'pattern' is one, then you're 7 year old will 'quit' camping in 6-7 years and you'll be ready for a different MH.

Which one

Funny if this was posted on the Tiffin Forum the comments would have been the total opposite. No one has to go to Red Bay for any repairs. If it is major perhaps and if major repair was required on Berkshire it would go back go factory as well. So much misinformation on all forums. Don't believe everything you read. There are 10x more Phaetons on the road as Berkshire so there will be some more negative comments.
Ps I am proud owner of Tiffin gas coach and the Georgetown is not even in the same league even tho priced similarly. I tried to stay loyal to forest river having a Rockwood and Cardinal in the past.

6-7 years is many, many years in my book. And the bunk area can be used for storage so there's no reason if the kids aren't with us we couldn't still use it.
