As far as Total Value, when we were shopping they did offer us a good price but only on the unit they had in stock. So ordering from MHSRV in Texas allowed us to order the exact color exterior and interior that we wanted. Also MHSRV is an 8 hour drive for us compared to a 20 hour drive to Indiana.
We were especially impressed that MHSRV gave us a loaner car (a 2015 Chevy Equinox) to use for the 4 days we were there. We even used it to drive to Dallas for the day to see the JFK Museum! Our "campsite" for our stay was a covered, paved spot with full hook-ups. No, there was no fruit basket but they did give us a bottle of wine, a starter kit ( sewer hose, toilet paper, water hose, chemical drop-ins, and pressure regulator) and a 200 piece tool set. The PDI was flawless and comfortable. We never felt rushed. Our tech did find a spider crack in the paint and it was addressed instantly. The repair was beautifully done and gave us a chance to go to the JFK museum while they worked! If we were ever in the market for another MH we would definitely go back to MHSRV.
In fact, if you buy from there tell them Stevenson 11157 sent you and they will take another $500.00 off the sales price. Our salesman was Mitch Bennett.
Good luck in your search. I know you will love your Berkshire as much as we do!


I too have heard great things about MSHRV and in fact check their site frequently. I also inquired with them when buying my coach, but they said the price that I wanted to top out at was not possible for the coach that I wanted. That is why I went to TV. I definitely would consider them for purchase, but it would have to be a great deal for me to travel that distance.

After Easter I will drive from northern Wisconsin to Indiana to make the swap. I will have to travel by myself so please tell me what to watch for during the pre purchase inspection.

I would love to hear any other dealings with Total Value any one has had. This is a new unit with 77 miles on it. Wish me luck.
It's after Easter Fkaske, so I hope that you are getting your new coach soon and are very happy with it. We have no experience with TVRV but we do have the same coach. If you ever have any questions, please feel free to send a PM. Like any coach, you will go through your first year getting all of the kinks worked out, but it is a wonderful coach. ENJOY!!!

We just bought from MHS - great deal and experience - basically a day and 1/2 PDI - stayed on site the first night after the first walkthrough. Had a list of questions plus things to be fixed. All done before we left.

We traveled 300+ miles. I know I won't be back their for service but wish I could if needed. I was really impressed with those guys.

If anyone thinks they are interested - I would love to share my salesman name with you. You never know.

I don't have an issue or this thread I am sure you read all the posts as anyone can. Can't see the point in rehashing this over again.
