I keep my eye on everything
going down the road as well. When I have the time and
the money, I hope it will be a Continental Coach for us. I'm now a member of their "club" and monitoring their forum. We've crawled over, in and under one of their coaches and now we've scheduled a trip to the factory. Can't wait. It's not a purchase that is imminent, but if they continue to build and perform customer service as I've seen from my insulated point of view, they'll have a convert.
Don't get me wrong, we love our Redwood. By the same token, there comes a price point (which RW occupies) where construction technique should be heads and shoulders above some of the entry level and Grade B product that finds its way to market. I want more from my manufacturer than just bells and whistles. And I also believe that we can't give higher end manufacturers a pass because our units are rolling earthquakes. For goodness sakes, it's not as though they don't know that these units will be subjected to road abuse.
For those considering a RW purchase, research your dealer just as much, if not more than, the RV manufacturer itself.
