I don't see the value in the extra 20-25k for the creature comforts. Literally you could almost get a second truck for that premium.
Creature comfort is the reason we switched to a TT.
To get a MH with all the creature comforts as my Platinum EB, I would be up in the +100K$ region. Seemed a bit silly to have a $100K bucket of cash sitting out in the yard half the year. Get a creature comfort daily driver with the sufficiency to pull a comfortable TT.
And, as a wimpy old guy, I demand heated and cooled seats, electronic goodies, folding running boards, SOFT seats (not the leather covered cinder blocks in the Lariat and King Ranch), and........QUIET.
The major reason we gave up on MH was the noise.
As I mentioned before, our RV-ing is about the trip, not the destination.
Got my 2012 EB Platinum 4X4Screw in February for a couple bucks under $26K. Had just over 100K mi., but my mech pronounced it pristine....BEFORE purchase. Then got 3 yr / 30K b2b warranty for $1500.
(and I needed a "new" truck, anyhow)
My previous truck was a new 2012 XLT Scab EB but stripped.
I loved the functionality, but not the comfort.
2012 Ecoboost Screw, 3.31 (yes....really) rear end.
2016 Flagstaff 26FKWS, about 7500 loaded
Retired AF Mustang.....Picker always looking to jam.
