Could I get some opinions on these two. Would appreciate owners thoughts. Similar price, layout and options. Both models in the 2010 time frame. Looking to full time live for about 5 yrs in VA. Thanks.

No contest - DRV. Better built, better for fulltiming, but heavy.

I own a 2016 39TKSB3 DRV. Ordered it new from Rolling Retreats with many upgrades. We full time since new. Certainly not perfect but it really is a high end RV.

It's been a LONG time, but our first RV was a Dutchman. Anytime my wife talks about it, to this day she calls it "the POS Dutchman". We'd never buy another.

Ditto DRV especially since you're looking at model years well before they were bought out by Thor/Heartland.

When was DRV bought out by Thor? Im assuming consensus is a drop in quality at that time?

I believe it was early 2016, either then or in 2015. Sorry I just can't remember exactly when. Ours was built before the buy out though. [emoticon]

Thanks. From just observation the Grand Junction looks ok. Its been well maintained. But i can tell the materials are a bit better in the DRV.
