warm air furnace choices

Out here I mostly deal with boilers, so I'm not up to speed on who's making the best furnaces. My gun club is in need of replacing a 30-year old Magic Chef hi-boy oil warm air unit. Main considerations are cost, longevity and serviceability over efficiency. In the past, Williamson would have met that criteria; however, I've seen a lot of reviews indicating that they're not what they used to be. Based on what little I've picked up on so far, I'm leaning towards Thermo Pride. Any suggestions out there?

    Thank you for your reply. The consensus seems to increasingly point towards Thermo Pride, assuming they don't mind paying a little more than they would for a Williamson that's what I will steer them towards. Of course, it will be sized properly.
