Thanks for the feedback. It is hard to tell what is going on because if you want to order one the website states they are discontinued.
Waiting for the beginning of the year to see what happens with the legacy and palazzo.

This way it compares with the Tiffin Phaeton and the Fleetwood. Otherwise someone might think that the Berk is a foot shorter than the others when it really isn't.
The floorplan on the 400BH is a bit different than the 390BH. The specs on the website list the 400BH as 41'1" (funny enough, the brochure lists it as 40' 7"). It now has a L extendable sofa and the sofa / booth have been reversed. The bathroom counter appears bigger, the entertainment system is deeper and has a linen closet behind it (presumably accessible from bathroom), the space for the fridge appears larger and it now comes standard with the 12 cf side-by-side and has optional res refer and the pantry appears bigger (basically looks like they added about 14" to the middle of the coach).

Rv direct has had the 390 berkshires as discontinued for awhile. Speaking to one of the sales rep stated they are no longer making them.

I just bought a 400bh. I pick it up on Thursday 1/30. I'm pissed. I'm calling forest river tomorrow.

Wonder what they mean by participating dealers?

Campin Cajin. I will, I can't wait to get it home. I wish the price would of increased by 10k and not have forest river give a 10k discount a few days after I sign the paperwork.

I am trying really hard not to have buyers remorse.

get that is a tough one. If you can't win the argument with FR[ and I doubt you will] just forget it. I know easy to say. It would drive me nuts. It's a fun and exciting time when picking up a new MH. Just enjoy it and for sure post pictures. That new 400BH is a sweet looking MH. Where did you buy it?

Got it at national rv in Romulus MI. I signed papers on Friday with the bank. I know they haven't submitted them yet because I haven't taken delivery. But how knows. I may tell the dealer to rip the papers up and let's start over.

I will be ok either way. Just really not a good way to start this adventure off. I could of used the 10k to go towards a toad. If just borrowed 10k less.

None too happy here either! I picked up a new 390bh in October. If I had known that they would be offering a 10K rebate, I would have waited!!

That's ok. I'm glad you did. My dealer said they didn't know anything about the rebate. They said they would assist in getting rebate but no promises. They said it depends on what "deals" they were offering the dealers for the month of January. I will let everyone know about it when I find out.
