I just want to second what Avanti wrote below. I could have written the exact words he wrote myself.

The one thing that should be mentioned is that both the Pleasure Way and Roadtrek units seem to be made with higher quality, less offgassing, materials. When we were looking at new units we could actually SMELL the difference. The worst were the Winnebagos, particularly the ERAs. Unfortunately the only Great West we could look at was a used one a semi-local RVer owned and the smell had dissipated. When we got our new Great West Legend SE (2013) we found that it smelled just as bad as the Winnies smelled. The good news is that the offgassing goes away fairly quickly.

Unfortunately the Roadtreks, and to a lesser extent the Pleasureways offer less features at a higher price, or at least they did when we were looking three years ago.

Also REMEMBER that you never want to pay full asking price for your initial purchase in this industry. Everything I read says that the asking or list price is usually a full 20% to 30% higher than what they will take. The actual percentages that you should expect to the discount from asking/MSRP differs from whatever source you read, but I've never seen any source suggesting that you should pay full MSRP (or asking for used units). Personally, I hope that some others chime in with how they handle the initial negotiations because I'm really not that good at it.
