Berkshire XL

Just went to FR's web site and they are now separating the 2015 models as either a "Berkshire" or the new "Berkshire XL". New paint colors look pretty good!

I looked at the new lineup and found the difference in Berkshire and Berkshire XL to be the length of the coach.

There is more then just the length. The Berkshire line is 340hp, Allison 2500MH, vinyl floors, smaller tires and less weight carrying capacity; being some of the main differences. The Berkshire XL is 360hp, Allison 3000MH, bigger tires, more carrying capacity and porcelain floors. There is probably a lot more differences which I'm sure our great forum will bring to light.

I looked into that also, with the new price points I believe I would buy a Newmar or Entegra before the Berk XL.

When I got my 2013 they were basically what the XL model is now but for a lot less money. That being said, I have not "wheeled & dealed" with a salesman to see how negotiable the price is.

Agree, new front and rear caps but not much more different from my 2014 400 BH-360. I'm sure mhsrv in Texas will eventually discount them about the same as my 2014 model.
