This is a bunkhouse with 2 full baths.
No list price or sales price on it.
Didn't see any factory reps there with it.

Have to agree, didn't see anything that would make us want to go out and upgrade to a 2017 from our 2016. Show price is almost $40K more than we paid for ours last December. Would like to have the Michelin tires though.

Am I reading the spec sheet wrong? According to that the MH has a lot less power and much more weight than any of the Ram, Ford or Chevy pickups. I hope there are some aftermarket mods to increase the HP and torque.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

Very interesting, thanks for posting. I see quite a few things that would increase the cost though. I like the manifold plumbing in the wet bay.

I've been looking at the Berkshire and didn't even know the Legacy exhausted until recently. It goes after the entry level like Thor Palazzo right?

It's the first 40' entry level I've seen. What can you tell me about the Legacy, especially the fit and finish ride and how it drives?

Similar to the Palazzo but we had several reasons for choosing the Legacy. The Palazzo had a rubber roof (like trailers and 5er's) and some of the interior appointments appeared better in the Legacy. We have been pleased with our 2015, have upgraded a number of things such as the sound bar, water heater (the Girard Gen II was a disaster). Both rigs use Schwintek slides which I am not a fan of on large slides. The Legacy is on a XCS Freightliner chassis and drives great as far as I'm concerned. Ours has been in 25 states and just returned from the Canadian Rockies and it performed well. During a plant tour in Elkhart, we found that the Legacy was built to the same basic specs. as the Berk overall so hopefully it will perform well over time. The paint job and cosmetics so far are excellent.

Also the 360 RB has the large slide which is hydraulic operated and works very nice....I updated all compartment lights to LED...also TPS system for the RV and trailer...will be changing the sinks and faucets this winter as I have access to top of the line stuff at cost....updated the interior radio speakers...look at it...I chose this over the Palazzo

Love the RV....11000 miles in 14 months with 6 months inside last winter and just two weeks ago back inside for this winter....roof is excellent....finish and clear coat is very nice....Click image for larger version
