I am considering upgrading from my 2019 Forest River Sunseeker Class C to a legacy 34A. The Sunseeker's Ford E450 with V-10 gas is very loud and the steering wanders a lot. Using premium gas, it gets about 9 mpg pulling a toad. Also, my wife, who cannot walk unassisted, has difficulty with the three different floor levels from cab to living area to bedroom.
That being said I am considering the Legacy. My concern is the difference in mobility between the 27 ft Class C and the 36 ft Legacy.
Any information anyone can provide about the maneuverability of the Legacy compared to a 27 ft Class C will be appreciated. Also, feedback on the handling of the Legacy while pulling a toad -- my toad weighs about 4400 pounds with fuel and wheelchair.
The wandering of your sunseeker can usually be corrected an alignment and or making sure you have the correct tire pressure for the actual weight of your Sunseeker.
The mobility issues would be difficult to resolve.
The engine noise can be deadened a bit but not totally.
I believe the Legacy is about 2 feet higher.
Definitely quieter and easier to move around. BUT try before you buy.
