Does anyone have any experience with either of these gas Class A's? (Independence 8360, Yellowstone 8360, Sun Voyager 8389, or Sun Sport 8389) I think these model numbers have only been out in the past year or so.

DW has fallen in love with their floor plan. I'd be concerned with the Ford chassis/engine/transmission in the 8360s. The 8389s are Workhorse with Chevy 8.1L and Allison, which I would prefer, but they are $20K to $50K higher in MSRP.

We have the 8360 and have been full timing in it sence Aug and had verry little problems with it. the other one has a little more trim on it. As for the ford we have had no problems with it and like it better than the workhorse. Ford is better for service. Also look at the yellowstone 8360 same unit with another paint job.

Thanks for responding! Would you mind if I ask a few questions? I've scoured the brochure, but can't find the answers to these...

What gas mileage are you getting? With or without a toad?

Do you have actual front/rear axle weights for your coach?

The brochure says the GVWR is 22,000. Do you know what the GCWR is?

Does it come with 2 ACs or 1?

How's the turn radius? I've really grown to love the tight turn radius on my C5500 (17.5-foot turn radius.)

Thanks!
