Looking at a 38C forest river legacy thoughts? Price?

Hey every one I was just wanting to say hello and as always thanks for help


I am looking at a 2018 FR 340 38c class a diesel and wanted to know thoughts. Personally I love the floor plan and floor plan is a big deal

The closest dealer is @ $169k OTD is that good on this unit???

I first off was looking at a tiffin 38QBA and itís about another 55k for some thing like this forest river

Please let me get some insights on price? Quality? Etc I have read a lot on both just wants yíall thoughts

Thanks

beautiful coach, well worth the money... you'll love the move to diesel, and yes, the floor plan is the key... usable while driving for the family, and with the slides in as well. The xcs chassis sits low and only requires the single entry step...nice.

After owning a 2014 and a 2018 Legacy, weíre pretty partial to them and went with the 38c the second round. In terms of quality or resale, I donít think youíre going to find enough to justify the cost difference. I couldnít shen we were looking anyways. For the Extra $55k, we would have gone to a Berkshire for the XCR raised rail frame and a few other niceties.

$169k is a pretty good price for a 38C. Itís less than we paid for ours.

Some items to compare and contrast:
With the QBA you get front-entry. Legacy you get Mid entry. This means that you donít get the drop down bunk up front if you need that.

Personally, there are pros and cons to it. I can do without it, but my wife likes it.

The 38 gets you two full bathrooms, which is really nice. The QBR doesnít.

If you are trying to compare apples to apples you really need to be comparing the QBA to the Berkshire 38A. 360 HP Engine, raised rail chassis, etc.

We just went through this so Iím happy to share any of our experiences with you.

My recommendation is to get out to a Large FR dealership and start test driving.
