Question Buying a new Redwood?

If you was going to buy a new unit again, would you buy a Redwood or would you buy a Montana or something else if you were/are a full timer.

We are fulltimers and just picked up our new Redwood yesterday, we spent the first night in it last night.
We are still at the dealer, moving our stuff from our old rig and testing systems, so far all is good.
All I can say is WOW what a nice 5th Wheel to fulltime in, we are going to love fulltiming in this coach!!!

We are not fulltimers but do spent several weeks at a time, especially in the winter, using our Redwood and would definitely buy another Redwood.

We don't full time, but spend anywhere from 4 to 6 months in our RW at a time. We are envious of most of the changes RW has made since our 2013 came off the production line.

Would we buy another Redwood - most definitely yes, and from the same dealer.

I've often thought about this as we fulltime. We would probably give serious thought to a toy hauler if we were doing it again, if we didn't go that route it'd be a Redwood hands down.

I am just not one to buy anything that's very popular, I see Montana's all the time and even with full body paint they don't look as nice.

No we wouldn't buy another redwood especially from ExploderUSA - but I am in the minority here.

we love everything about redwood, but we also are trying to get a chance to spend one full day and night in ours because it has some very bad issues with it...I agree with JohnbOYtOO I would not buy from explore USA ever again...the best thing to do is drive as fast away from that place.

We are in week 2 of our first time out in our 38GK and we love it. During our PDI we found only 1 item that needed attention. Everything is working and there are no major problems. Couldn't ask for more. Would definitely buy another Redwood.

I honestly think the dealership has a lot to do with the owner experience. When we bought ours we paid several thousand more to get it from Lazydays in Tucson over what was quoted from ExploreUSA in Dallas. We thought long and hard about it and finally went with Lazydays, I initially thought I was making a mistake. While Lazydays certainly had some issues in service their PDI was second to none. They spent several days fixing many items I see popping up here all the time after delivery.

In retrospect I'm kind of glad I went to Lazydays, it wasn't a perfect experience but I have had very few problems since delivery.
