Best class a diesel pusher built 2006-2014

Hello. My Wife and I are Looking for a Used Class A Diesel Pusher 2006- 2014. We Know everyone has different taste .Though everyone knows. Someone makes THE BEST, Most Dependable Pusher. We are looking to Full Time in the near future. We have a Gas Class A. Towing the Enclosed Trailer full Timing.The hills will Kill it. I was looking at The American Eagles 2006 4 Slide.400 hp Cummins. Also Revolution.Though we want a King Bed.Also looking at The Country Coach Line. I know PREVOST .Though we can not afford that. I am a Stage 4 Metastesized cancer fighter. Please any input.We do not want to buy a money pit. Some one was trying to sell us their Revolution with a C-9 Cat.I have heard Horror Stories on the C-9 Cat .Then I see reviews that say different. I can no longer afford a mistake or problems once we get on the road. Buying a new Coach will not be an option. Cut into our retirement. Thank You...

I've heard good things about Newmar and Tiffin class A's.

We RV'd next to a couple at the Elkhart County Fairgrounds last year that had a 2009 Tiffin. He told me that beginning in 2010 or 2011 Tiffin doubled their daily production to meet demand. No added employees or space, just work faster, and thus less quality. So when they bought a Class A they wanted a pre-2010 year model. They were very happy with their unit and had not had any issues with it.

A Newmar on a Spartan chassis is a probably what you are looking for.

We had a 2008 36’ Country Coach that we loved and it was very well constructed. You won’t find many for sale because they hold up so well and people love them. Their paint jobs are gorgeous!
Ours had the Cummins 400.
We only sold because we wanted a 5th wheel. Otherwise we’d still have it.
Good luck!

We full-timed on a 40' 2008 Country Coach Intrigue for several years. Loved it. Sold after we quit full-timing because we wanted something smaller for shorter trips. By the way, as the previous owner of several boats and RVs. . .they are all money pits! But I still love them.

my conversations with class A users are that the Monaco prior to 2010 was a very good coach. that also came from a mechanic that worked on the Monaco coach series before thor who owns them now if I am no mistaken.

Really love our Tiffin Allegro Bus with a Spartan tag axle chassis and would second the comment that Tiffin and Newmar are hard to beat for support. I have two friends that have recently purchased Tiffin Phaetons and are very happy. One is a 2007 tag and the other is a 2013 tag. One thing to think about given your model year preferences is that 2009 and earlier coaches are pre-DEF so you might want to look at that. Good luck in your search.
