For what it's worth:
We spent a year and a half before upgrading from my Class C to the current Class A. We looked at the Hurricane, Miramar, Outlaw (38RE) and Challenger. The common thread was we had to have the outdoor kitchen.
The Hurricane, Miramar and Outlaw were taken out of consideration because:
Hurricane - full wall slide issues and small inside refrigerator (wife's crock pot wouldn't fit inside). Also, it didn't feel like it would be the right fit for us. At the time we thought out Class C had more to offer than the Hurricane.
Miramar - full wall slide and no window, with screen, in the bedroom that could be opened for ventilation. I believe the bedroom windows were changed with the 2014 or 2015 model year.
Outlaw - Patio could not be opened if my towed vehicle was attached to the coach which meant no grilling during 1 night stops. Have to go through the bedroom and half bath to access the patio from inside the coach. Small gray water tank (43 gal) in relationship to fresh water tank (150 gal). In fact the total gray and black tank size is less than the fresh water (where does the rest go). Refrigerator located next to the bathroom (this is a pet peeve of ours)
We selected the Challenger 37ND because it has the residential refrigerator (easily handles the wife's crock pot), side accessible outdoor kitchen can be used while the towed vehicle is attached, it has three slides rather than a single full wall slide, has 4 bedroom windows that open for cross ventilation, has 2 40 gallon gray tanks and one 40 gallon black tank which will handle the 100 gallons of fresh water. Also, although my towed vehicle and dolly is less than 4000 lbs the Challenger does have the 8000 lb hitch.
Again this is for what it's worth.
