Hope to be Coachmen Owners

Hello to all,
I've joined the Forest River Forum because my husband and I are considering the purchase of a new 2014 Coachmen Pursuit 27KB. We are experienced RVers having owned and actually used a 27' Class C Majestic, a Winnebago Adventurer (35'), and currently a 2010 Coachmen Chaparral 28' travel trailer - the latter of which we've just taken out twice in 12 months :-(. It has been used several times as an extra bedroom when we have company. We've decided we like the convenience of a motorized RV vs a TT -- so the search is on.

One of my husband's requirements is to keep the size below 30'. I want to have a walk-around queen bed (minimum size) that has a real mattress, which led me to look at the Pursuit 27KB. The floorplan shows it has a king bed! Can someone give me the low down on how the 27KB handles on the highway, in the city and going up mountains compared to a typical Class C rig?

My husband has been looking online at a 2011 or 2012 Winnebago Via 25Q which has a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 6 cyl engine. This one seems a little small for me, hubby and two JRTs doggies but my husband likes the increased maneuverability and the better mpg of the smaller footprint. Used 25Q's are difficult to find. Looks like we'll have to fly/drive halfway across the country to get a used one with no warranties. Can't afford to buy a new one. In terms of what we'd get for our money, we can purchase a new 2014 Pursuit 27KB for less than we would pay for a 2011 Via 25Q.

Any suggestions / feedback from the forum will be greatly appreciated.

Beth in Florida

You might consider posting a new thread where you will be much more likely to get some feedback. I would be happy to answer you there.

I came upon your post when I dropped in to visit the "Welcome Mat" forum. I agree that posting yours questions in another forum more related to the subject could yield more attention and feedback. BTW - welcome to the forums!
