Let me add my 2 cents. I really like the way the DX3/ M2 chassis drives and handles. I've owned diesel pushers for many years and like them too. But, for a forward control, meaning engine in the front you cant beat this M2. You'll love it when it comes to maintenence accessibility . Has adequate power, and its a proven reliable truck and chassis.

No it doesn't have 10 air bags and a tag axle... but for what it is, it's impressive.. and I'm satisfied totally.

Personally I think if you drive one, you'll be sold.

I currently own a 45ft 2010 Foretravel Class A and a 2015 RB model. Love the Class A but it is a beast. We are finishing up a 2 week trip in SD, Wy and Co in the Dx3 with a grandson. Just turned 20k miles on the Dx3. I can tell you without a doubt the Dynamax is much easier and more comfortable to drive, we are now discussing trading up to a 2017 bath and half and having the Force over the cab bunk put on it and selling the Foretravel. Yes, the A has a little more room but if you get the Dynamax with the 2 front slides you will have plenty of room.. Hope this helps, good luck.

Interesting - so you'd say both ride comfort and driver fatigue are better in the Dx3 vs the Class A DP?

Also, coming from the Class A to the Dx3, do you find yourself missing the huge front window/view while driving (just in terms of enjoying the scenery), or does it not affect the experience significantly?

Thanks for the info!

-James

Driver fatigue less in the Dx3 due to air ride seat and it's shorter. That said if we keep the A I will have an air ride seat installed. About a $6k price tag. We don't notice a difference in the view from the front. There may be a BIG difference in towing capacity over the Berkshire. You will notice that in the mountains.

I think the M2 also has a big window, not class a big, but big enough. I will have to post a video from our dash cam, shows how much you can see.
