Charleston purchase

I have just joined this group. We had a Tiffin 30DA & looked very hard at both the Tiffin Phaeton and Monaco Diplomat. Well, we ended up purchasing a 2006Charleston 36 w 4k miles. I found that it was fastly superior to both other DP's in features/options, quality & pricing.
Any other Charleston owners? Would appreciate hearing from you.
Thanks!

to FRF!!

Pull up a chair and hang out. This is a great bunch of folks here. Not sure on Charleston owners but as the site grows I'm sure we'll get some in.

Again welcome and we look forward to hearing about your experiences!!

Cool Nice.

Good choice. I personaly think that Forest River installs superior stuff in their product. for example, to get all the extras we have in our 08 Charleston that retails for about 260, 000, we would have to spend about 350,000 on a Feetwood or close to 400,000 on a Monaco. you do get more for your money if you buy a Forest River. Monaco, Fleetwood and other manufactures use smaller engines in their 41 feet long Rv`s, and carpet and vinyl floors. and some don`t use vinyl ceilings wich is a must to preserve the clean smell inside the coach. Just a couple of samples.

2008 Charleston

Just drove a 2008 Charleston 41 across country Virginia to California averaged 9.1 per gallon at 65 mph, we crossed the rockies from denver on I70 with cruise control and never fell below 45 mph. This coach is awesome.

Congrats on the Charleston and to FRF. Glad you tuned in. Interested in hearing more about Charlestons for possible future upgrade.

If the fuel mileage increases it won't be much. 8 MPG is about the average, some a little more and some a little less. Hope they find your other leak!
