Welcome! Like TxArvee We own a Greyhawk. I like many features of the Seneca as well. We would have seriously considered this model had it been available when we purchased. Everything about it says "More Power" to quote one of my favorite tv characters, Tim the Tool Man. One thing that would have made me pull in the reins is the difference in $$$$.

Hope to see you around the campfire!

Hi Jesse. Do you mean TS? { triple slide } I picked up my 2014 Seneca 37 TS last fall. I've had six other class c and one diesel pusher and I like this one the best. Mine has the rear air suspension also. Had to get used to the dash with the power window buttons up there instead of the door, but like anything else new you will get use to it. I live in Michigan around Detroit. I bought mine from National RV in Bellville, Mi. I've had a few problems with it but nothing serious. Click image for larger version

Hi Jesse, where are you located or how far are you willing to travel? I made a purchase in NJ on a 37fs.

Try Colerain RV they have sold and shipped all across the country. I've been dealing with them since 1977, still family owned. We are also thinking about moving up to the 37TS as the 08 35GS (3 slides) has us spoiled.

I'm near Charlotte NC. I'm thinking if I could save around 4-5k after travel expenses. I would be ready for a road trip.

Hi, Jesse, and welcome to the JOF! Spend some time here and you'll learn a lot of stuff, some of it useful!

I thought I'd share our MH experience. We started out with our first RV in 1991 or so, a 1976 27' Airstream. It was great while our kids were young, we hauled it all over TX and made 4-5 summer trips to CO. One of the things we liked about it was being able to go boondocking, especially on NFS trails in CO. (Our TV was a 4x4 Suburban.) We wound up selling the Airstream in the early 2000s when the kids were older and not so inclined to use the trailer.

I'd always thought I wanted a MH, and in 2007 had a chance to buy a 31' Itasca Sunrise at a reasonable price from a distant relative. We made a few trips in it, and what I found was that I did NOT like driving such a big vehicle on small TX roads. It was fine on major highways, but our travels have always had us on Farm-to-market roads/ranch-roads, always two lanes and no shoulder. This RV required a LOT of attention on those roads and I always felt stressed at day's end. Plus, we did not want to tow a vehicle, so we were kind of stuck once we were at a destination. In addition, we weren't in the situation to use it a lot, and any MH needs regular use or stuff happens. ... translate that into extra expenses to keep it running. In the end, we sold it in 2011 and started looking at bumper pull trailers in 2012. Bought our current trailer in 2013, and have happily hauled it over 8K miles since then, on big roads and small unpaved roads. No problem with either, and I'm a lot happier hauling it than driving the MH. (Maybe it's because I grew up on a ranch and have been driving a pickup hauling a trailer all my adult life. ..!)

I mention all this to you since I know nothing about your RV background, but wish you to evaluate your ambitions honestly. IF you're in doubt, it would likely be best to rent a MH to use for a week or more so you can figure out how it works for you. Buying one is a big financial commitment, and one that many MH owners find totally satisfactory. But, there are a few, like us, that found out after making that commitment that it wasn't quite everything we'd anticipated. As always, YMMV!

Please keep us posted on what you wind up doing! And may you find yourself with a tailwind at least 60% of the time!
