as owners of a 27' class c Tioga for 10 years, and slowly shopping for a class a for the last 2 years - this is what I've found:
we don't want a lot of length, and nor do we have room in our yard for a 36-40' rig. The 2004-2005 Monaco Cayman (same as Holiday Rambler Neptune) has a model (since discontinued) called a 32 PBD. actually measures just over 33', but has everything I want - diesel pusher, air suspension, 2 slides, and enough room for the 2 of us and our dog.
They retailed about 150-170k, depending on options, but I have seen a few 2005 used ones already selling in the 110-120 range. we're a couple years away from buying, but until I find something comparable, this is the coach I want.
if someone out here knows about these coaches, I sure would appreciate any info about them, and any other brands with similar features, we sure would appreciate it!
good luck in your shopping - it's one of the fun parts of rv'ing - checking all the possibilities, and finding which suits your needs the best.
