    Not a useful video, class A pushers subject not mastered the way it is supposed to be especially when posting a video to properly compare them. Diesel pushers are first about their chassis and engine then the layout and functionality. You guys present nicely but your notation system is a little childish besides being completely imprecise.

    I'm looking at the Newmar Essex ranging from 2005 to 2008, they run about $100K to $175K. Quality wise the Newmar, even though used are far superior to these. Specifically if you plan to spend the $220K on the last two. There was no input on engine, for something this size you need a 400 to 500HP diesel, what of the generator, the Newmar comes with a 12KW. Then there is reliability, this was not cover either, all of which are important to me, at lerast.

    We're in our first motorhome, a 2013 Winnebago Access 24V. We've been discussing upgrading and there has been a fair bit of debate over whether to stay with a class C, go to class A, or maybe even super C. We don't full time in it (maybe in a dozen years when the kids are in college) but we do go boondocking. I'd prefer to keep the length to about 30 feet so we can still fit in some of our favorite campsites, and 35' would be the absolute upper limit. I'd prefer an RV fridge so we don't have to run our generator to keep our batteries charged to run a residential refrigerator, and a nice big 4 door RV fridge with plenty of storage would be a bonus. Since we have four of us our stays tend to be limited by water and holding tank capacity (class A wins that) Storage capacity is also a biggie. Since we sometimes bring other people extra sleeping capacity is a bonus, but most of the bunkhouse layouts sacrifice too much kitchen space for my tastes.

    Any thoughts?

    Thank you so much for these reviews. You bring up issues that are very important, yet I might not notice some of the items that you pointed out. Must say I was quite disappointed with plastic sinks, etc. Please keep up the good work/service you both are providing. Lou Ann/Oklahoma
