Tons of Monaco's, Tiffin's, Winnebago's and Fleetwood's though. Out of every five coaches I see, 4 will be one of those four brands.

Boowho??

I agree that I also see more of the other brands out there, but I can't necessarily say that one specific brand stands out more. When researching, my criteria was quality (owners seemed to generally feel the quality was good), factory support (always heard good things about warranty support and also instances of support after the warranty period. And especially good reports of resolving issues at Elkhart factory facility) and bang for the buck. For the money, especially with steep discounts available, I don't know of any other DP's out there that can match Forest River products feature for feature. It was this last fact that made me consider a DP over a gasser for the difference in money when moving up from a class c.

We agree-- after looking for awhile for a bunk house FR Berkshire's seem to pack the value. Still working through a few minor issues but are happy with the coach.

Have a wonderful time. The coach makes it so much more comfortable with kids and pets. When everything is working well it is nice!!

I'm just jumping in here. We currently have a 2007 Tiffin Zephyr but with three kids getting older (11, 9, 7) I have decided we need a bunkhouse. Was considering a Phaeton but saw some pics of the 400BH and am now anxious to see one in person. A dealer near us has one and I'm hoping I can get hubby to go look at it this week. I think the floorplan will be perfect for us. Sometimes my parents travel with us and our two big greyhounds also come along, so I need plenty of sleeping space for all those bodies. I'm glad to hear you like yours, and the other positive comments.
