I just purchased my RV, the dealership and all personnel were fantastic. But the quality control of the unit left much to be desired, I hope things work out, and I will give them a chance to be honorable.
As far as the unit, the lighting switches and operation are not the best, you don't have a
master control from the drivers seat.

No undercoating for rust prevention.

The mileage is 12.4 @ 62 mph and 2250 rpm
maybe up to 14 @ 55 mph and 2000 rpm.
Great get up and go, almost racing quality.

They should offer a house battery upgrade to 2, 6 volt golf cart batteries.

The manufacturing process and QC shows a lack of attention to detail, too numerous examples to write.

Mercedes could have had additional fuel capacity and Coachman could have added an additional tank behind the spare tire and or in place of the spare tire. Additional strengthening of the cargo bins would also improve the quality of the unit.

Te use the Jensen VX4022 audio video, for some unknown reason, they choose not to place the bluetooth microphone in the designated place by the overhead console and light, rather a cheap plastic mount is glued by the steering wheel and amplifies road and cabin noise.
Good luck trying to sync your cellphone, the secret sync code is 5309, but no one will tell you or knows. No instruction manual was presented, but you can search on line and download it. My AM radio did not pick up any stations, I wonder if the antenna is connected or if there is an antenna, again poor QC.

Insufficient USB ports for charging in the cab area, actually, there are none, except 1 in the radio. If they placed a few USB and 12 volt plugs in the various compartments on the dash, it would be fantastic keep the clutter down in the cab.

Fuel economy advertised at 15 to 18 mpg. Drove for 4000 miles. Never got more than 12.5 mpg. Tried speed for long haul was 65 mph. Plenty of power. The Mercedes cab was a completely stripped down variety the sales person failed to mention that fact. Fuel capacity requires you to stop every 270 miles. Very inconvenient for long travel distances.

Just over 7000 miles. Roughly 13 miles to the gallon. 250 miles per tank. Hard-to-find diesel in a crunch. Gas light comes on with 6 gallons of fuel left. Scary. Love the layout. Not the best construction. Very cheaply built. Staples and glue could have been placed better. I've had to caulk along several places. Need to reseal some outside compartments and around wheel well. On the interstate, wind can blow the vehicle all over the road. Not the happiest with the dealership. Get things fixed first, but I would purchase this prism again.

Bought from dealer in Iowa. Plenty of power and torque on hills etc., 14 mpg best yet with 7,000 miles mostly highway. Chassis makes awful cracking noises and snapping sounds during slow speed travel over parking lot entrance curbs/ramps. Dealer has not been helpful in rectifying. Construction is unimpressive and low in quality. Bed is very comfortable with pillow top mattress, DVD player and main TV are junk. Nice awning and slide out. Overall I would give it a 5 out of 10. I won't buy another.

Excellent floor plan. Excellent lighting-both natural and LED. Lots of convenient storage. Extremely comfortable bed and reclining loungers. Easy to maneuver in traffic, climbs hills with ease, great gas mileage with at least 20 mpg. I highly recommend this unit!

I will start with some things not acceptable to me. The water pump is mounted just below the shower floor. Extremely noisy and at night when all is quiet will rock you out of bed when the bathroom is used.seems like Coachman built this around the pump pump. Very tight install and a extream pain to work on.
I relocated the pump to a space under the coach behind the drivers seat. The work was worth it. Very quiet now.
No trouble with Mercedes power. 15-16 MPG. Lots of power and don't mind stopping at a gas station.

We have put 15000 miles on it, no problems at all. Quality is ok,this is my third RV and it's as good or better than the others. The Winnebago is better quality and has a better floorplan,( the bathroom is way bigger with two doors),but its 30k more.Being a architect, there are thing I would have done different.Like why is the fridge in the bedroom?,should be next to the sofa and the shower should be where the fridge is, with dual purpose doors to seal of the back. And using Table is akward. But everything else works well.

Good size vehicle and drives very well. Also, the construction quality is good. Factory installed slide toppers on the two slide-outs would have been nice to have when purchased. I had the toppers installed by the RV dealer to protect the top of the slide-outs and keep rain water and leaves from getting inside the RV when the slide-outs are retracted.
