flexdog 1 - I am currently looking at a Jayco Redhawk. What did you not like about this unit? Too plain, floorplan, etc. I am not having any luck finding out about the Redhawk from Jayco or others here on this site, but it APPEARS to be the type Class C I would want. Am I missing something?


Tommy Salmon,
It is primarily the trim level that we weren't in love with. It seemed like a quality unit and has many of the same features as the GreyHawk. My georgeous wife likes the nicer trim level...

Flexdog 1 - thanks for your answer to my question. I agree the trim level of the Redhawk is somewhat generic. I like the trim level of the Grayhawk better, but I think the vinyl floor throughout the Redhawk would probably work better for me and my family. I was just curious if the "nuts and bolts" and overall structure were the same as the Grayhawk.

If you want a Greyhawk, can it be special ordered with the floor covering you want? I wouldn't want carpet either.
I'd describe the "trim level" in our old Escapade as "Basic Stark" but oddly it has a carpet option which I'd just as soon it didn't. I like the Winnebago Chalet series which is sold to rental fleets.

Scott,
If you go to the Nexus factory in Elkhart, take the time to look at the Phoenix Cruiser. Their factory is in Elkhart as well.

We have had 3 PC's in the last 3 years, kept getting that dreadful disease called 2 footitis. We love their coach interior design and their factory support. We now have a 2910 and love it!

OK, I get criticized for this but I think it is still good info, at least IMHO!! Some people get hung up on Ford vs Chevy, etc etc, but in MHO, I think the most telling is the floor plan! Your floor plan is what you will live with every time you use the RV, and if you think you will get used to a small inconvenience, think again it will grow into a insurmountable problem in time! You mention 6 - 8 people make sure that the RV you buy will meet your needs in all areas before signing on the dotted line! picture yourself and your 5 - 7 companions on the road in this thing, are you "just getting by"? or is your every need met? Yes your wallet will dictate some compromises, but check out different units in your price range to see if they meet your needs, thats right YOUR needs, my needs or someone else's needs may or may not fit your needs.if you have to spend a little more to meet those needs, DO IT! the difference in monthly payments will be dwarfed by the problems/inconviniance you will suffer for trying to save a couple of bucks! Good luck and hope your dreams come true!
