Default Class A Cresendo MH

Need info on Anyone who owns a Cresendo diesel. Need info on Diesel mpg, Handling, any other good info you feel I need to know. I own a 07 Endura Class C, bought brand new turned out to be a lemon (this unit)
one problem after another. Its on a Kodiak chassis, Diesel, (chevy) no problem with that, problems have been with the Endura its self. Fm time of purchase Jun o2 08 till feb 08, 10wks in shop total. In shop in May this yr and in shop now, this time leak in front cab over, 3wks past warranty, all that extra extended warranty does no cover leaks, now Dealer is talking to GS in taking unit back and helping out with something else. Or to extend warranty and repair leak.. had hydraulic motor replaced 3wks after buying unit, couldnt use slides of jack on 1st vacation. I good go on and on.. Oh one last option a 08 endura on a International... THey will want some money, no even trade....

We have an 8356, 2006 model. Very nice coach, on a Workhorse chassis, handles well, 8.4 mpg over 23,000 miles, all kinds of driving, including the Rockies. For the money, I don't know that you'll find anything better.

We also own 2006, 8356 Crescendo. Ours is on a Freightliner Chassis with a C7 Cat Diesel 300 hp and Allison 6 sp transmission. We have averaged 8.6 - 10.6 mpg depending on wind, alititude, driving speed, etc.
This is our home as we are full-timers and, after a little remodeling, couldn't be happier. We have had NO problems with anything in this coach and we are thrilled with the customer service we have received from Gulf Stream.
