In addition to what was stated above about the "in-house" Winnie fabrication - I was impressed with how the drawings, schematics, parts lists are all available to the owner from winnebagoind.com/references. The manufacturer or our prior RV felt those were proprietary and would not release them to anyone except a Dealer. Every Winnie cabinet part, pillow, wire has a part number printed on it. I can enter my serial number and print a 70 page parts list specific to my coach build as ordered.

Here is an example of their 3D drawing platform available online:

Yup, this /\

I love the sheer volume of drawings, schematics, parts lists, etc available online for free for Winnebago motorhomes. And if there is something that isn't listed, just email Winnebago, and they provide it. The other thing that is really nice is that every single piece of wire in the RV is labeled every few inches, and referenced. Want to know what a specific wire goes to/from? Easy peasy; every single one is listed.

We have owned a Discovery for 5 1/2 years and are very pleased with the unit. So much so that we were looking to upgrade to the American Revolution but the line has been discontinued. Now we are considering the Discovery 44H. We like the floor plan and really like the large closet in the rear for storage.

The Manufactures have Factory tours that let you get a look at their build process. I would recommend that you tour the plants of the units you have in mind. We ended up with our Newmar after watching the build process and touring the factory.All cabinets, walls and such are built in house by Newmar. Because the walls are not laminated and built 16" on center framing we will not have to worry about delam. I have a friend with a 39' Journey and it has been 1 problem after the next so I guess it can happen with any manf. to get a lemmon.

Winnebago hands down. Reason is the amount of support after the sale.
