One key thing I noticed between the Suites and the Aire at Hershey is that the Aire does not have recessed slides.

But, one the Aire does have that MS or ES does not have, is a rectangular sink in the bathroom.
Having seen those sinks I would prefer that feature in our ordered MS.

Galley and half bath sinks are rectangular sinks, full bath is an oval. Just my opinion, but the oval sinks look dated.

A big difference is in the frames--I don't think the Aire has the 15" boxed frame segments--12"?. And there is the dropped subframe in the front 1/3 that mimics other mid-line models.
Have not been inside one to comment on the interior setup/furnishings/finish.

I would compare to the Montana, I am betting you will get much more for your $$$ with the Montana.

I'm kinda siding with Cummins on this subject. The Montana is a lot of RV for the money and can be had for a very good price.

Grand Design Solitude would be a better choice for the $$

I really think the quality will be very similar. Don't hear near as many complaints about Montana's as a few years ago.

Not sure why DRV even tries to compete in this arena.

We looked at both Grand Design and Montana, wife didn't care for either one and you know what they say about Momma. I guess that's why there are so many different brands and floor plans.

Sometimes I wonder about important issues--wonder if they would sell as many Montanas if they had named it the "Rhode Island" or the "New Jersey"? Seems as tho the marketing dept hit a home run on that name...

Ron,
I'll bet mgmt of DRV sees the number of Montanas being sold and said to themselves: "Selves, we got to get some of that market..." They were trying this even before Thor bought them--bet the Aire goes the same way of the Select and Tradition lines--people who are looking will see way more value in the Montanas.

For my money I would look for a newer used MobileSuites that will be worth more money in 5 years than the Light weight DRV.
