Considering a 2015 Seneca 37TS

I really like the Class C body style, I currently drive a 2014 Winnebago Aspect 30J. We have decided to spend more time on the road so we would like a larger coach. I have also owned a Class A (2010 Fleetwood Bounder 33U) and frankly I didn't like driving the Class A.

I am wondering if Seneca Owners would chime in and convey their thoughts on their Seneca coaches. I am considering a 2014/15 37TS. We like the floor plan that the Seneca triple slide offers.

Some of my questions are:
How does it tow? I tow a Jeep Wrangler and my Winnebago gets the job done, but with some effort.
How is the engine noise while driving?
How is the ride/steering?

Thanks in advance.

Nice to drive. Noise of engine less than ford v10. Towing a jeep or more don't know it is there.

Bought a 2014 2 months ago have used full time since then.

Only trip had been 700 mile trip all toading a modified 2013 wrangler JKU. Power is adequate fuel mileage was 7.5-8 mpg. I have an appointment at Freightliner to address a couple of issues (not huge) dealing with air brakes, cruise control, and tsb's. Drives well the engine noise is not excessive.

As far as the coach it is comfortable to stay within a few small issues (I expect some with a new unit). The only design issue I have is with the slide out pantry, I may be the only one with this issue based on my recent post requesting feedback from other 37ts owners.

Overall happy with this unit.

Love mine. I would get a cramp in between my shoulder blades when I drove my class A...I am much more comfortable driving the truck. The engine noise is not bad at all, the wife and I enjoy ours because the slide setup (and where we put the kids) cuts out almost all their conversation noise which allows us to carry on normal conversations (normal as they can be when you are driving through beautiful vistas enroute to a destination where you know people are going to welcome and accept you for who you are not what you drive). I normally tow my Mazda 2 but have gone up to 6000 pounds. When at the higher weighs there is a little motion when you are being passed, but the pull is not bad at all (admittedly, this could be a combination of factors from alignment to tire pressure). All in all we could not be happier with our coach, it is so much better than the one we had before.

Thank you for the replies. I am 90% convinced, I would like to compare the 2015 product enhancements before I decide. I am looking forward to Jayco updating their web page to show the 2015 models.

All I can tell you about the 2015 is, they are selling so fast that they can't get one for the display area at the JAYCO visitor's center. Just there 2 weeks ago.

There ae a few differences between the 15's and the 14's, mostly cosmetic. The shower heads are different, the 15 has an aerating shower head. There is a solid surface counter in the bathroom vanity with an undermount sink in the 15, not like that in the 14's and earlier. There is a change in the location of the keyless entry on the coach door, I cannot confirm if the manufacturer changed but the location definitely changed from the door to the door handle. There is a new paint scheme for 15. The TV cabinet has been changed and the location of some of the TV switches...beyond these things, I have not noticed any difference, other than the price increase.

Those are not significant changes from 2014 to 2015. I would be more interested if the mechanics had any significant changes. Currently I am looking at a unit at a local dealer and watching for a closeout deal, I am hoping to get lucky.

We just ordered a 2015 37TS hoping to get it by the end of this month. Very excited. Went with it because of lay out and slides not to mention the the freightliner with Cummings engine, have been driving a 31' fleetwood with V-10, hot in the front of the cab.

we have the 14 37ts. We love it. We pull a Hyundai elantra and don't even know its back there. Cab is fairly quiet and the chairs are great on a long drive. Very easy to drive. I think you would be happy with your selection. We get around 7.5-9mpg going 65. We are headed out to the east coast this week for a couple weeks. Looking at around 4000 miles round trip. Have fun with your selection!
