View & Navion owners - Would you buy again?

Knowing what you now know, would you buy again ? What is your favorite thing about your coach? What is your worst complaint?

I agree- I like the J for being more open but don't know what "bette feng shui" means. I'm sorry, I'm not Chinese.

That should have read "better" Feng Shui. And, Feng Shui means harmonious - as in, the floor plan just feels better.

We have the Navion 25J and have had it for a year. Basically we love it. Wish that it had come set up for solar. 4wheel drive would be nice as well. A little tight for storage but we have adjusted. Any inconvenience is outweighed by the ease of driving, comfortable living and no anxiety when pulling into smaller places.
The build is great and except for some smaller issues have no complaints. Let's hope that continues.
We both feel this was the right choice for us at this time. Lynn

we just bought a Navion 24V I love the twin beds in the back that also convert to almost king size. I especially like that when we use the twin beds there is a place/more room to rest my arms due to the middle portion that goes across. (My mom had an RV with twin beds in the back for years) I really like having my own space and our dogs do too LOL

To early

Picked up new 2017 Navion 24G last week.
DW pushed for something smaller she could drive as well.
Traded our 2008 Excursion 40E for it.
I'm still in shock over size.
Very nice to drive and opens up alot more sites in CG's
Fuel much better but all that wasn't a problem for me
Happy Wife, Happy Life
Hope that's right
Time will tell

Great! Let us know how you like the smaller size! For those of us that haven't decided yet to go small or large!

Can't imagine going large to small.

I can't imagine going from a large rv to a smaller one. However, we chose a Navion24v because we are not full timers and the RV fits in our parking space next to our garage. Had we gone larger we would be storing the thing. ick! We live in Oregon where we only get a few freezing days a year. Hoping to avoid having to winterize the RV. With it close by we can run the heat pump and circulate warm water through the pipes as needed. That's the theory anyway....
Hope we don't mess the thing up. (newbies here: 2women and 2dogs)
We like the gas mileage and the smaller size so that we can get in more CGs and make turns in tighter spaces. Right now just working on learning the systems. Today my wife got tangled up with the dog, fell, and broke her shoulder at the rotator. Stuck at home for now :( In a week my son is coming up with his family. I am going solo and meeting them at diamond lake and crater lake. He can help me out as needed. Outta be fun wish me luck I need it LOL

We love the 24J layout and feel. My one concern is the corner bed and how the inside person gets out in the middle of the night for a trip to bathroom without disturbing their mate? How do you all deal with that?

We traveled in a 2010 View K (24') for almost 8 years. We loved it. It went everywhere and then some.

We needed more room when going FT so we are now in a 40' DP.

We intend to go back to a smaller RV if & when we quit full timing. Absolutely will consider a View/Navion if they are still around at the time. We REALLY miss the MPG :-)

2014 Navion IQ 24V, best choice for us and yes we would buy another.
Great fuel mileage, plenty of storage, great lay out.

Changes I would like to see:
Sound proofing at the rear wheel well.
A single sink option in the galley.
