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.
