Review: 2016 Forest River Berkshire 38B

When you’re looking into buying a luxury motor home, you expect only the most quality amenities. Most luxury coaches are fitted with full-feature kitchens, comfy sofas, extensive driver controls, and all the technical features you require to make your adventures run smoothly. The 2016 Forest River Berkshire 38B certainly has all of that, but what makes it special is just how homey it really is. With a superior build, spacious interior, and full-featured entertainment system, the Berkshire is home on wheels.

A Build You Can Trust

Forest River is no stranger to the motor home industry, and they’ve produced quality coach after quality coach for decades. Much of their success comes from their manufacturing process. Everything takes place within one facility, meaning all of the finest materials are brought together under one roof, each rig being carefully inspected during the manufacture process.

The Berkshire is sturdy from the floor to the ceiling, built with a Freightliner XC-R chassis and upfitted with a MORryde Tru-Brace reinforced frame. The result is a strong rig with an impressive performance on the road. With a Forest River coach, you can expect only utmost, tried-and-true quality.


All the Space You Need

The freedom of the road means nothing if you’re cramped the entire time of your journey – nothing can ruin a trip like not having the space you need to create wonderful memories. With the Berkshire 38B, you can put these fears aside, as the coach has not one, not two, but three slideouts. Talk about room to stretch your legs!

The roominess extends to all parts of the motor home, especially the master bathroom, which includes a fiberglass shower with glass door, a closet, his and her sinks, and a porcelain toilet. Of course, you’re going to want space for all your precious cargo, both above and below deck. Ride in ease knowing that your gear–easily packed away with pass-through storage–is protected by the rig’s steel basement structure.

Fun… Inside and Out

When it comes to entertaining guests or just having a relaxing night in, the Berkshire has all the interior features that you’d expect of a truly top-of-the-line motor home. A television in the living room, a television in the bedroom, and a Bluetooth-enabled soundbar allow everyone the entertainment they want.

But what really sets the Berkshire apart from its competitors is its exterior features. How many motor homes do you know that offer an outside entertainment system? Catch the latest game on a 32-inch HDTV installed in the exterior sidewall while enjoying the great outdoors at the same time. Or, plug your own tunes into the stereo as you take in your new surroundings under the shade of the Berkshire’s 18-foot exterior awning.

Home is where the heart is, and the Berkshire has plenty of that. Whether you’re fully secure as you guide the coach along your journey, or you’re kicking back and putting your feet up after a long drive, you won’t need to close your eyes to imagine that you’re home – you will be home.
