Looking to buy a late model DP. Narrowed search down to a Tiffin Phaeton or Fleetwood Discovery. Pros and Cons for each?

The name "Fleetwood" says it all.

Fleetwood is fine, but Tiffin is in a class of its own.

Late model discovery lx have a lot of value / items like aquahot etc at a more discounted price. The ones I’ve looked checked several of our boxes . Tiffin has the name and a better reputation for fixing what’s wrong in red bay ( and that’s good because you may use it)
personally I looked and like the hung wall and other construction factors of Newmar and Entegra better And personally rated them higher than Tiffin’s especially after seeing , in person the manufacture the of tiffin, Newmar and Entegra (we didn’t look at Fleetwood) it has been a few years ago when I was considering a newer coach. Newmar and Entegra were clean and organized and had my vote .. but that’s not what you asked ??

Condition is more important than the make.

Any chance you'd add a 3rd option? [emoticon]

Back when I was considering a diesel pusher in the $200-400,000 range, Tiffin was really the cream of the crop. That's not to say a $750,000 coach isn't better, but that wasn't in my price range.

Have now owned 2 Tiffin motorhomes, both were fantastic and have enjoyed the last one the most. Calling for questions is always answered correctly and quickly by Tiffin staff.. When I needed a part that too was handled well. When time comes to upgrade, I will look at what THOR did to Tiffin before making that decision.
