Here is a forum thread I found when I used the search word "compare"
Not sure if this is the one you saw or not.....

There are a couple of Class C manufacturers that are considered "best". Lazy Days and Phoenix Cruisers as I recall. Winnebago and Jayco are also considered good brands, there are others. Most major brands offer "entry level" and higher grade rigs, some with gas engines, some with diesel power. I don't know of any detailed unbiased reviews ranking best workmanship, best features/amenities, and best dealer after-sale support. Try googling "best brands of Class C RV's".

We own a 2004 Fleetwood Tioga 26Q bought new in 2003.I consider our rig of average housebox workmanship quality. We have replaced the fridge, roof AC unit, and the converter/charger and recently had the generator fuel system serviced and replaced the dual house batteries. Fleetwood Class C's are very common and many are used by rental companies. Do your homework and read advice on picking a rig that is best for you and your budget.

Phoenix Cruiser has been around for a fair length of time; according to their web site, their first model was introduced in 1997. Coach House is another company that's in the same tier as Lazy Days and Phoenix Cruiser, from what I understand. None of these three make any super-C motorhomes to my knowledge.

With your price range, you're obviously looking for a used motorhome. I'd pay at least as much attention to the quality of maintenance and upkeep on the particular unit you look at as to the quality of the brand name. A lesser brand in better shape, with care and attentiveness towards the ongoing maintenance, will be better than a somewhat better brand that has been abused and/or neglected, generally speaking.
