Found this & was very suprised:Sad::Sad: "Coachmen are at the lowest end of the RV market, and therefore have a price that will appeal. They also have lots of graphics and usually ultra leather, this is used to give the RV a "WOW" factor and disguise the fact that the build quality is poor. Ponder, if you wish, this point. Most A class RVs are built on either Ford or GM base vehicles, they use the same air con, cooker,heating system, microwave, etc, so the cost to the manufacturer up to this point is going to be very similar. It is the fitting and quality of the habitation that makes the difference. All manufacturers will want to make the maximum profit from each model, so please ask yourself this.......If they could sell there product for the same price as Tiffin or Winnebago, why don't they? The answer is simple, they cant because on comparison the quality will not stand up. At this point anyone who owns a Coachmen will start to defend there vehicle, and so they should, they purchased them, and you could say I am biased because I am selling a new Winnebago, BUT..... I only purchased a Winnebago after spending 3 weeks in the US, not talking to the sales people, but talking eating and drinking with the Tec's It became clear, as with all things you only get what you pay for, and the true value for money option was either Tiffin or Winnebago. If you are still not sure, log on to the American RV web sites and all will become clear. Sorry to chunter on but I would hate to see anyone make an expensive mistake If you would like an independent vie on a Coachmen I can give you the name of a friend who owns one and can confirm if you phone him he will have just one word to describe his RV......Junk. This is not a vendetta against Coachmen" This was some one else's post but found it interesting................... I wonder how many other makes are like this.
