Opinions on the different Serrano models

Does anyone have any actual opinions on the best Serrano models? they seem to vary a bit by year.

The "best" one is the one that fits both your needs, and your wallet!
It's an absolutely personal choice, and everyone has to make their own decision.

Actual opinions. Why reply if youíre going to write something completely and utterly useless?

All that I'm saying is that another person's opinion and three bucks will get you a cup of coffee...
Besides: these are older models, and their story has already been told...

All I’m saying is that when you don’t have anything useful to add to a discussion, being silent is the best option.

You don't have to listen to me: just put the "Ignore" button to use...
I can promise you that it won't hurt my feelings a bit!

I donít have ownership experience, but recall well looking at one in Houston that we liked a lot because of its very large rear compartment ó bike garage. Thatís what we were mostly looking for.

I like the modern look, and the floor plan we considered had only one slide with couch and dinette ó no kitchen or other moving parts to make a slide even worse.

Being a front engine diesel (FRED) it seemed quite loud even at idle. I didnít take it for a drive.

The Workhorse chassis had gone out of business, so I was concerned about parts and service. Iím not sure if thatís justified but I like easy access to parts.

The diesel V8 under a different brand had issues, and I wasnít able to confirm whether they were related or shared problems.

In the end we liked the appearance and loved the bike garage, plus the floor plan was very good for us, but the motorhome was much larger than we wanted, it had a slide (we prefer slideless) and was a diesel (we prefer gas).

Had it not been for the large size, I would have looked more into it. It also had a good price as I recall.

Well, i can give you my opinion about the model 33W. I first looked at a 33A and liked the floorplan, and styling. We wanted something with the TV directly across from the sofa so we didn't have cricks in our necks! We also like the chairs instead of the resturant dinette seating. After we saw the 33W, we decided to wait for it because we wanted the washer-dryer setup too. We carry two fold-up bikes in the rear compartment, plenty of room for everything else that we want to carry as well. We like having two- grey water tanks in addition to the black. This is our seventh motorhome and all previous coaches were gas. This diesel has been great. Although the horsepower rating is only 230, I have never wanted for HP. It's the torque that makes the difference, 620 lbs! All our previous gas coaches downshifted on interstate overpasses if we used cruise control. Not this diesel! Also has smooth Allison 6 speed tranny. Fuel consumption averages around 11+. We have recorded as high as 13.2 on interstate runs. Handling has also been extremely good in all conditions. Needless to say, we are very happy with our Serrano.

Also I forgot to mention that compared to my previous gassers, this diesel is much quieter at 65mph. That is probably because the engine RPM is around 1450 compared to 2500 on the gas engines. DW and I can hold very nice conversations without raising our voices!
