Our search so far...advice needed

We plan to purchase Jan/Feb 2017, and begin to fulltime as soon as we sell the house. Wife and dogs will camp near her parents when I'm OCONUS. We are quite interested in a " gently used" diesel less than three years old, but won't start looking at those until late fall. Our criteria for used would include finding an RV used by non-smokers.
As for now we are spending our weekends shopping and looking at floor plans. We are looking at Class A diesel and gas, as well as Super C diesels.
Minimum 38 feet
Good Arctic pack
Very open floor plan (3 dogs)
Lots of storage (an issue in the Dynamax Force I like does not have according to wife)
Ability to safely tow a jeep or larger SUV through the western mountains.
Washer dryer- pstackable
1 1/2 bath
After negotiations, we' d like to be around $ 185k-our research indicates that we should expect a 30-40 % drop below MSRP, so we
plan on $185k + 30-40 % when we are looking.
ETA HH6 Says we have to have bunk beds too.

As we will have to return to FL and TX regularly, I am concerned about gas burners, but wife loves the space of the Georgetown XL.

Look at the Legacy. Overall length of 39'-4", 340 HP pusher. There is a bunkhouse version, but we have the 360RB. Bath and a half and an electric bunk up front. We tow the Wrangler Unlimited without a hitch. Our trips are FL to TN to AR to TX. Selling price was around $163K, so well within your target. Some folks out there got even better pricing.

Good luck on the search, some folks with more knowledge than I about the diesel pushers should be able to help you.

In the Navy we call HH6 - CINCHOUSE
That translates to Commander In Chief House
