Does it have basement air . . . Parts can't be gotten for them anymore if it does.

Also check around windshield. The windshield frame is prone to rust and cracking windshields.

How old are the tires on it?

We have the 2004 vectra with basement air and we have found parts and service easily. Even replaced whole unit about 3 or 4 years ago. At that time the forums we're saying "can't replace or get parts". So I wouldn't let that deter you. I'm assuming same unit in 2008 of course but not sure if it is.

Have 2004 Itasca Horizon 40AD. No problems so far getting parts for the basement air. Use home heating and air service as a source. Currently works great
