Sherman -- admittedly, I'm prejudiced, but when I looked at CH, they offered no changes from their standard & options -- I specifically requested the Sani Con & was told "no" --- and, as you say, the price & trade value was rediculous (sp). As I've said before, the PC offered the amenities & fit & finish that I didn't find elsewhere in the 23-24 ft. range. And, as others have said, the folks at the factory go out of their way to please.
You're preaching to the choir. ;-)
DW and I don't have anywhere near that kind of money to drop on an RV, and even if we did the additional expense is hard to justify.
For what they charge I'm amazed they don't offer the Sani Con standard, and to not at least offer it as an option is just ridiculous.
I didn't even get so far as to compare options. I watched the CH video because it was right there, and I thought it would be interesting to compare the videos back-to-back. What I meant to say was that PC is clearly a better value. CH may have some advantages (R-28 insulation, one-piece shell) but not nearly enough to justify the price difference.
The primary claim to fame for CH seems to be the one-piece shell. While that would seem to be preferable to the way most class C RVs are made, as a practical matter I don't see that it makes a real difference. I don't hear anything about PC, LTV, or WGO coaches developing leaks so it's pretty much a non-issue, near as I can tell.
Bottom line, PC holds up very well next to CH, which is very impressive considering the major price difference.
DW and I have come full-circle back to PC. The only reason we started looking elsewhere was to try and find a walk-around queen in the same size coach. There are a few, but they aren't what we're looking for otherwise.
I've been searching coast-to-coast for a 2350 w/dinette on a Sprinter chassis but haven't found any -- not one. Are they not very popular, or are people just holding on to them?
